Arturia MiniLab MKII + Sustain Pedal

Arturia MiniLab MKII + Sustain Pedal:we obsessively test and report on thousands of items each year to recommend the best of everything. Certain features could be betterIn reference to Akai MPK mini 2, this unit is better build quality, much sturdier and heavier mostly because of metal plate at the bottom. Keys are great quality but they are not as expressive as MPK mini. I find the pitch bend and touch mod strip feature very unusable, very hard to have smooth bends especially while writing automation. The knobs are only preprogrammed to Analog Lab, so for everything else you have to manually program them, which was not the case with MPK mini. If mod/pitch bend feature is important to you, I recommend a midi keyboard with the classic wheel design. Just a side note, in MPK mini after two years of usage pitch bend/mod toggle started glitching, then the USB port broke, which would have been replaceable if there wasnt an IC chip right behind it that got broken with it as well. With that said I recommend trying out diferent products aside from popular ones.max 65% off,san antonio mall,new product!!Arturia MiniLab MKII + Sustain Pedal
