Great Compact Controller!


The Akai MPK MINI MKII Compact Keyboard and Pad Controller is fantastic for the money. You can take it anywhere and everywhere. The pads are a great add on that makes this controller the bees knees! I highly recommend this product if you are a novice user or an experienced user.

Great Piece for a small studio


If you have a small space you're working out of, this is a great way to have a music production tool without taking up too much space. This thing is simple and strait forward, works well, and priced right. Great buy! This is a real hands on product review from Chris O'Neil @ Sam Ash White Plains

Great Akai piece


This controller is great. Small and compact but with endless uses. Great for smaller sized studios that can't have huge keyboards inside of it. This is a hands-on product review by Tamir @ Sam Ash Edison
