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.

A great little thing for all musicians
madmofo 11.01.2021
You can create some serious music with this thing.

I bought this to lay down ideas within my DAW, and it does what it's supposed to do. Assign different parameters within your DAW to the knobs on this thing, and you can improve your workflow if you set it up right.

But keep in mind that the keys are very small (as the name suggests, this thing is so tiny and cute!), so if you have large hands, you might find yourself feeling some pain after playing for a while.

Also, the pads are not as responsive as say Native Instrument's Maschine, but they are good enough to lay basic drum patterns (I usually use the fixed velocity function and adjust it later in the DAW).

This thing is probably the best deal if you're in the market for a small, portable midi controller that's reliable and fun to use.
