Introducing the ultra-portable, go-anywhere MPK Mini Play, based on the world’s most popular MIDI controller — Akai Professional’s MPK Mini. Packed with 128 sounds, its own built-in speaker, 8 backlit MPC drum pads & knobs for editing your sounds and a 4-way joystick for simple, tactile control, and you have all you need to take your music on-the-go. Powered by 3 “AA” batteries, the MPK Mini Play is built for hours of wireless fun. You can also connect to a computer via USB port for plug-and-play MIDI capability. Don’t want to disturb others or simply looking to amplify MPK Mini Play? No sweat. Simply use the mini-audio output jack to connect headphones or virtually any external speaker, amplifier or mixer.
At the heart of MPK Mini Play is a 25 key, velocity-sensitive synth-action mini keybed with octave up and down buttons to expand the keyboard to the full melodic range. With the iconic 4-way joystick for pitch and modulation control and a dedicated sustain pedal input, access all the tools to capture every subtle nuance of your performance.
Make your sound your own. With dedicated filter and resonance control, take command of the timbre and tonality of MPK Mini Play’s stock sounds and fine-tune your signature sound. We even include EQ, filter, reverb and chorus controls for further customization – modulate your sound, add some space and truly take your sound to other-worldly heights.
With an on-board arpeggiator, with tap tempo and multiple arp modes, creating retro-inspired synth lines or sourcing that initial idea to spark your creativity couldn’t be simpler.
