The MPK Mini keyboard product line revolutionised portable music creation for producers and beatmakers around the world. The new MPK Mini Plus builds on this innovation by giving musicians the full creative control they need for great feel and ultimate expressiveness, along with next-generation performance tools. Advanced connections easily bring together your favourite studio accessories for complete and advanced hardware integration in a compact 3-octave design.
Despite its compact size, the MPK Mini Plus offers extensive controls with a bandwidth of functions. The 8 velocity-sensitive RGB-backlit MPC drum pads not only play dynamic beats and program drums, but also assign program changes and trigger additional CC parameters. Add effects with the 8 assignable 360-degree knobs for each function, including filters, automation, panning and more. For the first time on an MPK Mini, dedicated transport control is provided for total integration with your DAW. You stay in the creative workflow with dedicated Play, Stop, Record, Loop and Locator buttons, eliminating the need for constant back-and-forth from your computer keyboard and mouse.
As with all MPK Mini controllers, performance starts with the keys. MPK Mini Plus features 37 keys with the Gen 2 Dynamic Keybed for expanded and harmonious music creation. 3 full octaves means more room for two-handed chords, arpeggiation and playing solos or soundscapes. The Gen 2 Dynamic Keybed offers incredibly playable keys with a wider velocity range and world-class note dynamics and response. With more keys comes more ways to bring feeling and expression to the game. That's why the MPK Mini Plus features dedicated pitch bend and modulation wheel controllers to really breathe life into keyboard performance. In addition to the iconic joystick controller, there is no shortage of tactile interaction for virtually unlimited expressiveness.
For those spontaneous creative moments or quick jam sessions, the MPK Mini Plus can be operated in standalone mode. The new polyphonic step sequencer is especially handy for putting new ideas into practice immediately. The ability to record notes and drum patterns simultaneously makes for fantastic standalone music creation possibilities. Connect any class-compliant USB or 5-pin MIDI accessory and use the CV/Gate connections for your rack or other modular synthesizers. The MPK Mini Plus is versatile enough for beginners who want to get serious about creative development, and equally suitable for seasoned pros who want to get the most out of their studio gear.
The included MPC Beats software DAW for Mac and PC offers the legendary MPC workflow right on a desktop computer or laptop, plus thousands of sounds, drum samples, loops and plug-in instruments to create your next hit song. With more keys on the 37-note Gen 2 keyboard, MPC plug-in instruments like Electric and Tubesynth come to life with an expanded acoustic range. Place the MPK Mini Plus on the desktop and connect standalone MPC devices to control Mellotron and Hype plug-ins.
Even with a 3-octave range, the MPK Mini Plus fits easily into your gig bag and can be transported along with your everyday music production gear. It's a simple calculation: add the MPK Mini Plus to your workflow and the result is modern, creative expression and intuitive control for music and beat production.
