Ok for first small midi keyboard
Yarik, 15.04.2020
I needed some midi keys to input some scores and play some synth in DAW. I checked reviews and decided to pick this popular model.
Well... I didn't use it much since it arrived.
Pros:
- Cheap
- Some built-in sounds
- Batteries or usb power

Cons:
- Keys.. They demotivated me to use it..
- Sound quality.

Summary: Price speaks! If you want portable keys to quickly get things done - it maybe your choice.
If you are looking for good companion that will inspire you to create/play - I would look at a bit pricier options with good keys.

Gets the job done
G KASTANOS sax, 02.09.2020
Pros
-battery/usb powered
-synth & midi keyboard

Cons
-limited on board sounds
-does not have many controls

Overall Akai mpg mini play is a piece of gear that will just get the job done. However, with the addition of external effects (guitar effect pedals) you can get a much more interesting result. Definitely something that can be used in a more demanding situation with the (much needed) ad-ons.

Great value for the money
random_hero87, 15.11.2018
I bought this just to play around with at home. It's really fun and it's great that it can be used standalone. I've run it through my loop pedal with my guitar and you can make some great backing tracks with it. Being able to run it on batteries is another great feature however the built in speaker is a bit lacking but that doesn't bother me as I'm either using it with headphones or through an amp. I would definitely recommend it.
