A Small And Handy Controller!
*Theo E*, 11.03.2020
The Midimix is a great -but not the best- solution at a great price, if you're looking for a compact midi controller for your DAW.

Quality is excellent - This thing is build like a tank. AKAI is no stranger in manufacturing things that last (my SG01v from 1997 still works flawlessly), and this device is no exception. It feels substantial and very sturdy!

The faders are small, but it seems that their value distribution is logarithmic, so as you raise the fader you get better precision! They work well. However what is disappointing, is that the knob height is short, meaning that while you can, of course, twist them, you can't get a firm grip on them, very easy.

Besides the official configuration for Cubase, you can also get unofficial Remote codecs for Reason in GitHub. By default the unit is configured to control 6 parameters x 8 channels. However I've created my own setup, that maps all knobs to one selectable channel. This gives me more control from the unit.

In the end, Midimix may not be the best controller, ergonomically speaking, however it will fit nicely on a small desk space, and it will last for many years!

Perfect ableton controller with one drawback
Mars KD, 25.05.2020
I have used this controller in many performances since buying it due to its obvious ease of use, organized design and portability. Overall, its a great controller, exactly what you see with a decent build quality. When using it with ableton, though, the firmware does not create a red "ring" around the selected tracks that are being controlled. For this reason, rather than use it out of the box to control basic mix settings as it is originally configured to do, I always custom map the whole thing to control other things like instrument parameters. So it takes a little more setup than my other AKAI controllers. Once set up like this its pretty much perfect though.

Great little midi mixer
Nick Jennings, 20.01.2020
It's pretty stable and durable. The knobs are a bit short, but nothing too bad. I've never had an issue using this and it does not slide around on even a smooth table.

Awesome controller !!!
23.01.2016
I use this controller to send MIDI data to Ableton Live and it does the job quite good. This controller has a good quality-price ratio because you have a lot of controls in a small package for a low price !!! Despite the fact that the rotary knobs are short (less than 1 cm) so it is not easy to grab them and that there is no momentary/toggle functionality for buttons in the Midimix Editor software, this controller is very robust (ideal for transport) and gives you a handful of controls (faders, rotary knobs and buttons) for your DAW !!!
