Akai MPK Mini Controller

Nice to see you all back! Did Santa bring you anything great this year? Lord knows he didn’t over here at Everything Recording HQ. I guess he didn’t appreciate that letter I sent to him when I was 9 years old.
Dear Santa,
How are you? I am fine. In the light of last year’s present of the KettleWorx system I get the hint
, I’m a bit overweight, but did you have to leave gift cards to Golden Corral as well? That doesn’t seem very nice to me and whats with the Lane Bryant clothes too. I’m not a girl and while we’re on the topic, there was a letter in my stocking that said, “I wanted a daughter.” I’m sorry you an Mrs Claus don’t have one but what does that have to do with me? Now I’m pleading with you not to be a douche this year and get me a Super NES system.
Needless to say, he only gives me Bally’s gym memberships and makeup to this day….
What? Santa isn’t real? It’s actually your paren…. ohhhhhhhhh now it makes all the sense in the world!
Well now I don’t really feel like posting anything after that walk down childhood lane but oh well. AKAI mini something something keyboard USB *runs off sobbing.

Portable Software Control
The Akai Pro MPK mini is an ultra-compact mini-keyboard with an impressive array of buttons, knobs and pads to provide “hands-on” performance and production control no matter your location. MPK mini strikes the perfect balance between portability and comprehensive software control by melding together the complete control offered in the popular Akai Pro MPK family with the grab-and-go convenience of the LPK25 and LPD8. With a 25-note keyboard, 8 back-lit, MPC-style pads and 8 Q-Link knobs, the MPK mini is the ultimate portable controller to get your music moving.
The MPK mini keyboard is ideal for quickly entering notes and phrases into your computer. The velocity-sensitive keys allow you to accurately express dynamics, while accessing different pitch ranges is done instantly through dedicated Octave Up and Down buttons. Create sparkling, staccato leads and driving bass-lines in a variety of time denominations and patterns with MPK mini’s built-in Arpeggiator. A Tap-Tempo button gives you the ability to quickly adjust the Arpeggiator clock which is essential if you’re looking to stay in sync with a band. A Sustain button holds notes after releasing your hand from the keyboard allowing you the opportunity to easily pound pads and twist knobs, with no pedal required.

*Stops sobbing and lifts head up. Pounding pads? What a sexy description!!
