We love mini MIDI keyboards. The sleek, compact feel of the keys and the way it ultimately fits into my studio and stage setup makes me feel more organized. Akai Professional has done such a good job year in and year out with their music equipment, particularly their MIDI keyboards. I’ve had my MPK for about 4 years now and couldn’t be happier (I’ve upgraded this year). With that being said, their compact keyboards are built so well with such a low price, they’ve been dominating the mini game for quite some time. We saw a lot of positive reviews on the original Akai MPK Mini MIDI keyboard, so let’s see what they’ve done with their beloved compact controller with their new MkII models.
