Overly complicated with mandatory downloads, Unusable... Paperweight

Understand this, it doesn't play out of the box. You will be required to sit in front of your computer for well over an hour(s). You will be forced to create accounts, passwords will be made. You are made to hunt around and add every bit of convoluted mess that their website(s) make you. In the end it still will not play a note, No sound shall be intoned.

My favorite portable MIDI controller

This is a seriously sweet controller! Not perfect, but excellent for portable work with a MacBook or an iPad. I would say I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews, but I do. They are mostly from folks who just didn't understand what they were getting into... This is a MIDI controller. As such, it must be attached to a device that can interpret it and produce sound (Logic/GarageBand on a Mac, or GarageBand on an iPad, for instance). If you just want to tinkle the keys it'll work out of the box with either, but to really get some use out of it you're going to have to load the Editor software and dig in a little bit. I did a bit of research, and was able to map out the things I wanted to do. As it turns out, Apple has 16 drum sounds that are available for the drum kits (not drum machines) in both GarageBands (Mac & iOS) and Logic. Better yet, they share 16 note numbers to trigger them. So I was able to setup the 8 pads with all 16 sounds using the A/B switch, and was able to group the sounds physically on the pads so it worked for me. I used two different "Prog"s, so I could have 2 different layouts, and then used my P-Touch label maker on the smallest font to create labels that tell me which sounds are where. I had to cut the labels with scissors to make them fit between the pads, but it worked and now I can see exactly what's where even when I haven't used it for weeks or months. I did the same thing with the knobs. Assigned basic values (Channel Vol, Pan, Modulation) to the most convenient knobs, then picked some of the more esoteric MIDI CC values so I could play with them for the other knobs. And labelled the whole mess so I would remember it. The sensitivity of the keys and the pads is great; better than the LPK25 or the LPD8 I think. Doesn't have aftertouch, but that's about all I can see missing (and that isn't a reasonable expectation at this price point). My only problem was connecting it to an iPad Pro, but I think I've got that figured out. Using just the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter didn't work; I got "Cannot Use Device. MPKmini2: The connected device requires too much power." Turns out I needed to connect it through a USB hub. I used an unpowered Satechi hub I had handy and it worked. That's got a long cord, though, so I'm going to try using a very inexpensive Sabrent 4-port unpowered USB 2.0 hub with a 6" cord. That should do the trick. The AmazonBasics 4-port 2.0 hub would be another option... The Editor software for this is MUCH easier to use than many I have tried. It's more straightforward than the editors for the LPK25 or the LPD8, and beats the Korg nano editors shamefully. And don't get me started on the Roli BLOCKS editor... Overall, this is the nicest portable MIDI controller I've found. Get the Khanka case for it and you'll be all set. Just make sure to put some dryer sheets or something in the Khanka case before you put the MPKmini in there; the case smells like something died... :)

I'm at the end of my rope with this thing

As many other reviews have pointed out, the first challenge here is getting all of the included software installed. After that, good luck learning how to use ANY of it if you're a beginner. I watched numerous amateur youtube videos that covered some aspect of MPC Essentials use, only to get stuck on one of the more robust ones when I realized there there is "MPC Essentials" and "MPC Software." Try googling the difference. You will be led to an article on Akai's website that allegedly explains this, but ultimately raises far more questions than it answers (again - there is just one question I'm there for). There is nothing remotely intuitive about using any of the software, and almost nothing at all in the way of instruction available on the internet. If you stuck with it though, and are getting to the point where you can put together a little sequence (even if you still haven't figured out what a "sequence" is or how it fits into a larger project), the next thing you might notice is that the drum pads are a complete joke. They're supposed to be pressure sensitive, allowing for dynamic sound on each pad, and they are. When you play at a register low enough to make a difference in sound though, it's also so soft that the pads miss a lot of hits. At that point you have a choice between filling in/adjusting all the gaps from the sloppy pad detection or putting all the pads at full level and either accepting a static sound or editing the individual hits afterward. In other words, you might as well just use your mouse to input everything, if you're going to have to give each individual mouse treatment anyway after using the pad to create it. At that point, the device is rendered nearly useless. I essentially paid for the software. The software that is a separate version of what's on the few MPC youtube tutorials available out there, and which I'm not sure if I should upgrade from, as nobody can even tell me what the difference between the two is. This has been a nightmare.

Not worth the aggravatioin (software)

Extremely difficult install and instructions. The choices to install where not the same on my computer as video showed. Most of the instructions I got a 404 error. I had to have akai website on screen, ilok on screen,email on screen, and tou tube for the instructions. You are switching back and forth between the sites, while opening files. I would get a popup for reg numbers, and the popup would block the numbers, and wouldn't minimize, so I had to close it to get the number and then start over to get the popup. Ridiculous amount of steps. If microsoft, corel, norton, apple,etc downloaded this way they would be out of business. I finally get it working, and try a different program, and after doing settings, there is no input for mini MKll to use. So I start over again. Maybe I did it wrong, maybe I didn't include the whole file, but I shouldn't have to be unzipping and loading files to download a program. After 2 days I am closer, will see how tomorrow goes, but so far not worth the aggravation. An update: Keyboard works great with Mixcraft8, I gave up with MPC and VIP included software, it was on/off with me, I would check the box for mkll and it would work awhile then quit, then I couldn't get a check to appear in the box. Much easier install with Mixcraft, much easier to use.
