    Super portable, easy to use, excellent value for money.

    Aleemul Haque | 4 November 2019 | Aantal toetsen: 25

    • Pros:
      Portable: Drop Akai MPK Mini Play in a bag and take it anywhere.
    • Pros:
      Akai MPK Mini Play comes loaded with 128 sounds and a built in speaker which means it can be played as a standalone instrument.
    • Pros:
      Also Battery powered: Besides USB power Akai MPK Mini Play can be used with only three AA batteries.
    • Con:
      Keys are very small and could be not so comfortable to some people.for long time playing
    • Con:
      Built-in-speaker sounds not that great.
    • Con:
      Three AA batteries may not last longer.

    Complete with a built-in speaker and headphone output, with built-in sound module, and with just three AA batteries, the Akai Professional MPK Mini Play is more like a tiny synth workstation, I can create melodies anywhere I like.

    The industry standard home studio small MIDI keyboard

    Daniel Simon | 27 March 2020

    This is the industry standard in small MIDI keyboards for home recording. You will not have any regret costs with this device. The only negative is that you can find these cheaper (15-20%) elsewhere. However when CoolBlue delivers next day that is a premium I am willing to pay for.
