I used to like it

fabiovsilva4, 12.02.2017
I used to love this keyboard. Then a key snapped off so easily...

I use this midi keyboard hooked up to my ipad mini 2 (apple camera adapter) through IK Sampletank, and let me tell you - amazingness happens.

Pros;
Portability - It's size and portability together with the ipad mini makes this a very good tool for synthesizers, leads and pads. The ipad powers the keyboard (must use a non-powered usb hub).
Usability - You can assign the keys to play a lead synth and the pads to play a drum-set for example. For its price is amazing.

Cons:
Built - although it's made out of solid plastic, its not the best build you'll see, it might break, if treated well, i assure you.
Joystick - i really love it, but you have better control with separate modulation wheels.
Size - for keyboard players who want to get serious and are in a budget: you can find on thomann keyboards at almost same price, with 61+ full size keys. You will be totally able to learn the piano on something like that.

Conclusion:
Why did I give 5 stars although i find negative aspects in the keyboard? Easy - if you buy it, plug it into your pc and install the provided amazing software, your creativity on music or soundtrack creation will exponentially grow. If you have a portable device, you can take it anywhere with you, and you will always be ready and eager to create.
Also, and very important - what I will do next is to buy a longer keyboard and use this one as the lead synthesizer, this would let you play the keys and a lead solo at the same time.

Good and great for newbies!

27.02.2017
The Akai MPK mini is my first take at using MIDI controllers. What I was looking for was something small, easy to carry and with a descent set of features and with the Akai MPK mini, I have to say - I got my money's worth.

Pros:
1. Lightweight. One of the first things I noticed is that is really light. When I received the package (It was a single item) with the MPK mini, I thought the box was empty. I surprised how lightweight it is. Since I travel between 2 cities on a daily basis, this is perfect for carrying around.

2. Easy to set up. It was really easy to set up and it works well with the recording software I use (Cubase, Ableton).

3. Good for newbies. Since I am a beginner myself, I found this a perfect fit for a MIDI controller to get into programming, recording, producing area.

Cons:
1. At first I thought I won't need more keys and that I will get used to switching between octaves. Even though octave switch resolves the problem easy, I still go a bit *sigh* when I have to make a switch between octave.

In conclusion - great tool to start with. Worth the price.
