A worthy upgrade from the mk ii
stimresp, 04.03.2021
I have the MPK mini mk ii and it's a useful controller for travelling with a laptop. However I never liked the flimsy knobs or the spongy keyboard feel.

Happily, the MK iii provides a slightly better keyboard action with more resistance, and much nicer endless encoders, which greatly improves their usability. The pads now also send aftertouch and the response is very smooth. I use it for playing VST and iPad synths and it feels pretty good!

I have the all-black unit and it looks very sleek and sexy. Overall a nice upgrade. I'm happy with the purchase.

My only minor gripe is that, to access the editor software you have to jump through some hoops: register the product, download the software manager and from within that the editor. Akai should just provide a direct download to the editor software on their website.

Small, reliable and full of possibilities
Marc_Dude, 28.04.2021
The AKAI Professional MPK Mini MK3 has become a welcome feature to my music production set up, with it's small design it's perfect for creating beats and pads for my music. It become a perfect companion for my guitars and its nearly always a starting point when I'm beginning to right songs. For the price I really cannot argue with the value that has been delivered.

Coming with a bunch of software ready to help create including MPC beats which can also be used within my DAW as a plug in.

The black edition was a added bonus as it suits the rest of my studio set up!

Famous solid midi keyboard
Magdowich, 23.02.2021
pros: you all know, you already watched all review videos
cons: black color shows lots of fingerprints and dust.
with akai mini editor program you can edit buttons and finger pads, you can give names to your profiles and you can see it on your small screen while changing between profiles. i like that little screen, i think feature upgrades will make it more usefull tho. MPC Bears software is cool and you can use it like a Plug-in from your DAW. other softwares are useful too. dont forget to check them out. These softwares can be decision maker for you.

For the money you can't go wrong
Constantine2k, 22.09.2020
The akai mpk mini is undoubtedly the industry standard especially for home studios. of course its not the best thing you can buy but for the money you can't go wrong although if you have a little bit extra to spend and you don't need the drum pad you can get an entry native instruments midi and it is gonna be a lot better.
