Whether you want to experiment with a bass line, tap out a solid drum beat, or tweak the parameters of your favorite synth patch, our new controller gives you the freedom to totally control your music any way you like.

To help transform your musical ideas into fully-fledged, pro-sounding recordings, MiniLab MkII includes a powerful music production platform, Ableton Live Lite. Every single one of MiniLab’s controls is automatically assigned thanks to dedicated pre-mapping, letting you spend less time in the settings menu and more time making music. Adjust your track levels, tweak filters and effects using the knobs; launch clips, capture drum performance, or control playback with the pads. MiniLab is here to make your musical life easier.

From inception to completion, MiniLab MkII keeps you in control every step of the way.

    For the price, its excellent! Feels solidly built. The drum pads were hard to get used to but they feel and respond great.

    Well built, highly compatible.

    Well built, I like how the keys play, they feel better than other midi keyboards I’ve had. Would buy other Arturia products based on my experience with this one.

    Another hit for Arturia

    Arturia saves my bacon again! I needed something to handle one-shots and other special effects and mini-leads with my Korg Kronos 2. I initially bought a Korg NanoPad 2 for the task, but it’s actually too-tightly integrated with the Kronos, and that caused some unpredictable results when playing in a situation where the master tuning is changed, causing all my split points and pad assignments to be off.Enter the MiniLab. It’s built like a brute, so it’s going to hold up to live gigging very well, and the feature set is almost unbeatable for the price. The setup application allows precise editing of the MIDI data being sent, and results are quite predictable. One thing you’ll need to be aware of, though, is that this product is USB bus powered ONLY, so make sure the device you want to use it with provides adequate power.

    Nice weighted keys

    Feels like a heave steel plate is welded to this thing. The weight might make you think twice about carrying it a rucksack, but its good for a desk model. Key sensitivity is consistent and you can play soft and loud without wondering how the sensitivity might respond – as its consistent and you don’t have to hammer the keys like those cheap keyboards.The setting parameters are great out of the box – though there is a utility to set them and backup the various ‘memories’ of the device. All the knobs are mapped to the supplied sofware which includes 1) Analog Lab 4 and 2) Analog Lab V and 3) Ableton 10 live-Lite and a Midi Control centre (for tweeking parameters or moving track patterns from one project into another)The fun you can have tuning old 1970’s synths and spending an afternoon creating weird noises. All the presets can be saved. The Aturia MidiThe only downside is that all the software is about 4-5 gigs and requires a long setup procedure of using anti-piracy licence programs including Aturia Software Centre, UVI.com portal and of course iLok (the current version will work wirh Windows 10, not some bundled old package version). Following the online instructions just to get all the software and licenses installed took me a few hours. The Model D piano is something that ‘appears’ once you’ve connected iLock to UVI (just don’t ask).The number of synths and software is probably worth the price of the hardware (when you see how much the software is to purchase) . Many of the Arturia plugins are there to ‘explore’ as trial / demo pieces before you buy. But you do get quite a lot for free.Ableton lite is probably in the same competetive area as FL Studio, but is easier to learn if you can put up with its fiddly piano roll. Having bought cheaper keyboards, I was struck about how nice looking, sturdy and how nice the keys are to play. The keys width is still smaller than a full size, but not as small and fiddly as the cheaper keyboards.

    Una grande delusione.

    Dopo aver letto svariate recensioni e visto un video realizzato da un celebre esperto italiano di strumenti elettronici, ero certo di aver trovato un prodotto dal grande rapporto prezzo/prestazioni. Purtroppo non è andata così. Dopo aver avviato il software di gestione del controller, vengo invitato ad effettuare l’ugrade del firmware (v.1.0.9.83), procedura che avviene in tempi rapidi e senza alcun problema. Prima di procedere con l’upgrade, tuttavia, voglio provare i comandi essenziali dello strumento, giusto per verificare che il tutto funzioni bene. Al termine dell’aggiornamento del firmware decido di ripetere i vari test e mi accorgo che adesso il Pitch Bend non da’ più segni di vita. Decido, allora, di scaricare dal sito della Arturia il firmware precedente e procedo con la sua installazione. Risultato: il Pitch Bend torna a funzionare (!). La cosa non mi piace affatto e decido di inviare subito una mail ai responsabili della Arturia per capire se il problema sia imputabile al firmware o ad un bug della mia MiniLab mk2. Nell’attesa decido di lasciare il vecchio firmware e testare ulteriormente il controller. La mia attenzione è rivolta agli 8 pad e mi accorgo subito della loro eccessiva durezza. Per suonarli occorre percuterli con una certa forza e la cosa non mi piace per niente. Noto, inoltre, un comportamento instabile dei pad i quali, di tanto intanto, riproducono il doppio delle note. Ho provato con vari VST di batteria e il problema si presenta con una certa frequenza. Usare uno strumento così capriccioso per registrare una base ritmica può rivelarsi un’impresa davvero frustrante. Provo a variare le impostazioni del controller ma il problema seguita a verificarsi.Sulla qualità della tastiera non ho critiche da fare, anche se personalmente l’ho trovata un po’ troppo rigida viste anche le sue dimensioni ridotte. Ho notato, inoltre, che i tasti neri richiedono una pressione maggiore rispetto a quelli bianchi.Un’ultima critica riguarda la scarsa cura dei particolari: la striscia “finto legno” applicata sul lato destro del controller non è stata applicata con molta cura e nella parte centrale risulta parzialmente scollata.Inutile dire che alla fine di questa esperienza ho deciso di restituire il prodotto. Mi dispiace, speravo molto in questo controller.Aggiornamento del 07/04/2017Pur avendo restituito il controller, ritengo doveroso segnalare la risposta ricevuta questa mattina dal supporto tecnico della ARTURIA, in caso potesse risultare utile ad altri utenti:Hello.Please open the Midi Control Center and Drag & Drop the factory template in all the Minilab’s memories.You Pitchwheel must be set to OFF in the Minilab parameters.Ringrazio l’ARTURIA per la cortesia e la sollecitudine con la quale ha risposto alla mia segnalazione.

    Ottimo prodotto. Qualità straordinaria. Altamente consigliato.

    Un prodotto d’alta qualità a un prezzo irresistibile. Pacco arrivato in perfetto stato. Dimensioni giuste per trasporto, disegno pulito. I tasti sembrano piccoli (vanno bene, e una tastiera “MINI”) ma sono molto confortevole, veramente piacevole da suonare. I pad me sembrano un po’ duri ma no tutto può essere ok. Per me un prodotto perfetto ideale per chi inizia in questo mondo musicale, anche per uso semi professionale. L’integrazione con il DAW(ABLETON) e perfetta. Prodotto altamente consigliato.

    Good value midi keyboard

    Nice bit of kit, good value. Arturia is a very well respected brand. I returned it becuase it wasn’t helping my setup the way I envisioned, I was only using the rotary knobs to automate within ableton, I already have a keystep which is better suited for hardware.

    Flimsy keys (might return)

    I bought the big model of this keyboard for about $500 and the springs eventually started to pop out of place in some keys. I bought this mini model to travel with and it is just like their bigger model. Its pretty but if you get groovy when you’re feeling the music, and hit the keys hard, avoid this piano. Springs will give if you are not super soft-handed.

    Perfect for a beginner like me!

    As someone who loves the sounds of synthesizers, I had no idea that there have been affordable software-based synths out there for years now. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money because I didn’t know if this would hold my interest enough. This is the right piece of equipment at the right price point. The construction of the unit is superb, it isn’t all plastic, part of the case is metal which gives it a good heft, it really feels solid. The keys feel great as well, especially for a unit this inexpensive. I had no problems installing any of the bundled software and had it all up and running in short order. It turns out that there are literally hundreds of free virtual instruments available out there (as well as effects, samples, host software) that you can download and use with this controller. If there are two caveats (especially for a non-trained player such as myself), it would be that 25 keys really aren’t enough to play stuff that requires both hands, and that these are “mini keys” rather than full size ones, which I find are a bit more forgiving for my adult hands. I wound up selling mine after a few months to upgrade to an Arturia controller with 49 full-size keys, but enjoyed every minute with the MiniLab25 mkII. Keep in mind that the included Ableton Lite host software (sometimes referred to as a “DAW”, or digital audio workstation) only allows you to create with a maximum of eight tracks. Even though Ableton is the industry standard DAW, a more capable version will run you around $300. You can get some great DAWs for free, or for far less than what Ableton charges. Unless you eventually plan on upgrading to a better version of Ableton, I’d recommend getting a less expensive DAW and learning on that one rather than learning Ableton Lite and eventually switching to a different DAW and learning that one from scratch. I personally recommend Mixcraft 9 Pro, which comes with many outstanding bundled synths and effects (including Melodyne) and is a killer DAW in its’ own right.

     Siempre he sido fan de Arturia y este juguete produce resultados increíbles por un precio bastante razonable. Amé la textura de los knobs y toda la configuración de las teclas, tienen muy buen balance de movimiento y sensibilidad.Analog Lab ofrece todo lo mejor de Arturia ya mapeado en el controlador, valdría mucho la pena tener la licencia completa para disfrutar esta estación de trabajo al máximo.

    A nice product and sweet deal all in all, however packaging needs to be improved.

    Thee keyboard is good and value for money as expected.The build quality is also superior as compared to other brands selling their midi in this price range.The only thing I didn’t like was the packaging and the safety measures taken to ensure everything stays safe, there was only a thick plastic wrapping on the product’s box.I expected another amazon box in which it should have been delivered, hence 4 stars.

    Like with caveats

    I’m an Arturia guy. I also have a MicroBrute, Keystep, Pigments and their V Collection 7. I got this as a desktop module for Ableton, and it’s pretty seamless for that purpose, allowing a great amount of built-in automatic control once you connect by MIDI (painlessly). The knobs are endless and have the right amount of pushback to offer refinement. The pads are tight for nice control. My one issue is that I wanted to take this on vacation to practice some songs. It’s great for one-handed use on stage, for sure. But any sort of two-handed playing is about 5 keys too short of any but the most basic one-octave riffs on the right, and too short for a standard G-chord on the left. So I ended up taking my Keystep instead (also one key short on the second octave right, but overall much more useful). I’d say if I want to “play piano” I probably have to size up to a wider bed. But for quick riffs where you can manually adjust the octave range up/down as you loop, this is great, super tough, comes with great software, and has nice responsive (springy) velocity keys.

    Excellent value

    Excellent quality and terrific price. Given all the included software, it’s a bargain. Excellent portable controller. Sometimes wished it was a little bigger but the trade-off in portability and price is worth it. The perfect integration with analog lab is great. Given the library of patches available it is an amazing value. For $80 you can upgrade the software to get 10x more patches but the hundreds you get with the lite version is more than enough to start with.

    Faulty Keyboard but hopless to return due to high international shipping rate

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

     I received this midi keyboard over three weeks ago and found no sound while I press four keys of keyboard. Also, the keys of the keyboard are not align in good position. I want to return this keyboard but I check with the delivery agency that let me down for the shipping cost over the price of this keyboard. I contact Amazon for help but they also can’t find a solution at this moment. This is my first time I receive a useless item from Amazon. I will consider to buy weighted electronic items from Amazon to prevent further losses if I needed to return the items.[Updated on 5 Mar 2021]: I found the price in local dealer even cheaper than Amazon. So SAD.

    Plays well, super portable

    Feels really robust and well made. Keyboard very playable for its size, and the pots feel solid. Important for me, it fits in my laptop bag to be carried around easily with my computer. The software is not the most intuitive for mapping, but works, while the drum pads feel a little erratic in terms of response to me – I don’t really use them myself but they might be important for some. A 5-pin MIDI out would be a useful addition.

  43. Daron

    Solid 4 star product

    Overall, this controller does everything I need it to do as a hobbyist. If you’re looking for more than that, then you probably want to invest in a higher quality product. My major complainta with this model are that the drum pads feel stiff and cause some hits to not register and the knobs feel a little flimsy. The pads are also farther apart than on most midi controllers and make some patterns awkward or nearly impossible without moving sounds around in your software. In hindsight, I personally would have wanted to invest a little bit more money and get a higher quality model, but the value of this product at this price point makes it a solid purchase that’s great for amateur producers like myself.

    Très bon clavier nomade

    Petit clavier pratique pour faire du son un peu partout. Fonctionne très bien sur Ableton. Le design est top et il ne fait pas cheap dans sa construction. J’ai agréablement surpris par sa qualité et il m’accompagne déjà partout. (Sac à dos). Le touché est correcte, les pad ne son pas incroyables mais ça fonctionne quand même. Le pitch marche bien, j’étais mitigé vu que c’est tactile mais ça le fait ;). Le tout compatible avec Analog Lab peut importe où vous l’avez eu… L’enregistrement en ligne n’a pas fonctionné alors que j’ai rentré les bons numéros de série, j’ai fini par abandonner, perte de temps inutile.

    I purchased this product recently , but when I go to register the product it informs me that I must create an account. It then prompts me to purchase A separate product in order to create an account. I need an account toRegister my product. I’m going in circles and getting nowhere.

    The Most Fabulous Object in the Entire Universe…

    Well, at least for a little while it feels this way. In another place and time this this plasticky thing with knobs and software could be worth a million bucks. This controller comes with Analog 3 software (get the $29 upgrade, of course) which features presets/sounds (unbelievable…yes, thousands)from several pianos and synthesizers from the past. One of the keyboards of many it offers has sold for a 100K.Ok, the controller, yes fine. nice keys with spiffy knobs, and the pads, well they do what they’re supposed to do. Sometimes this keyboard is the perfect size, and sometimes I could use a couple of extra octaves. Other controllers in this price range could be just as nice, I don’t know, this is my first. But I guess the thrust of this review is about your ability to modify and layer characteristics of musical sounds for an infinite amount of time with Arturia’s included software.So basically if you’re in the market for any piano or any synth keyboard, just get this thing for this small amount of money.

    One of the better controllers in its price range.

    Love the keys, love the knobs, love the flat touch bar’s, love the build quality, love the software it comes with.The pads are just okay. They are not very sensitive, so if you’re used to playing by tapping, you’ll be frustrated with these. I don’t use pads very often so it’s not a huge deal to me.

    Great build quality and bundled software, but very frustrating to control VSTs with knobs

    I loved+ the build quality+ the feel of the keys/knobs/pads+ the included AnalogLab software (lots of fun sounds!)I did not like:- VST control using the endless rotary knobs. This was extremely frustrating.If you plan to use your MiniLab to modulate settings for non-Arturia VSTs, then I recommend you go with a different midi controller with knobs that have min/max values.Here are more details about the VST control problems:There are two main modes for knobs: Absolute and Relative.Using the knobs in “Absolute” mode is very tricky because, without min/max bounds on the knobs, you don’t know what the current value is; so when you change tracks, you either get large jumps in settings or (if you turn on “soft takeover” in your DAW) you have to spin the knob blindly to hunt for the “takeover” point.Using the knobs in “Relative” mode is also frustrating: instead of just sending one value for “+1” and one value for “-1” when turning the knob in either direction, Arturia uses a special system where the knobs send different values for how fast you spin the knobs. This seems clever, but none of the DAWs that I tried (Ableton Live and Reaper) actually support this. What this means is that, in “Relative” mode, the DAW will only recognize the knob’s input if you turn it slowly enough to register +/- 1. There’s one way around this: you can turn off “Knob Acceleration”, so that no matter how fast you turn the knob, it only returns +/- 1. However, the result of doing this is that the knob is way too slow! For example, I have to turn the knob 5-6 full rotations to move a VST’s knob from min to max.

    Good value and a decent library

    I bought this for my wife who like to tinker with music production. It’s the perfect price point to get into it without sinking a fortune but it does enough that she’s currently not wanting for anything more. It came with a pretty large library of sounds and instruments. Definitely a good buy if you’re starting out.

    Muy bueno, lo tuve que devolver ya que me complicaba los software, para gente profesional va de lujo, pero para iniciarse cuesta comprenderlo, sin duda ARTURIA es por excelencia lo mejor.

    Leicht zu programmieren, nutze ihn ohne Software

    Ich nutze ihn für meine Hardware synthesizer als Master keyboard. Geht direkt in einen USB Host zu Midi Konverter. Mit einer kurzen vorprogrammierung am PC wunderbar. Die Tasten haben ein gutes Drückgefühl ähnlich dem Keystep. Fühlt sich etwas mehr nach Plastik an, aber wirklich minimal. Gutes Spielgefühl wenn man Mini Keyboards gewohnt ist. Kann man gut mit M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 vergleichen. Mit den ganzen Reglern kann man eine Menge anstellen. Die ersten beiden in jeder Reihe haben aber ein etwas anderes Spiel, also obacht. Das ist für Sonderfunktionen aber können dafür auch mit SHIFT doppelt belegt werden. Insgesamt nichts zu meckern. Schade dass man ein MIDI DIN erst Nachrüsten muss, sonst wäre das der ultimate Mini Kontroller.

    Don’t waste your time.

    This thing sucks. It’s built and billed as this durable product, and it certainly has the weight for that, but 4 of the knobs broke off after about a few months of use. A few months! I wasn’t even being rough with the thing. All of the keys are sticky now (despite me being completely clean with the device), and the drumpads are barely responsive so I have to practically slam my fingers on them to produce any results. Buy something else!

    Quite good, especially for the price

    Everything about this is good except for the crappy cheapo touch modwheel, the analogue lab instruments are all a bit lackluster in sound, there’s no midi out port, it does not work out of the box with Fl Studio so you’ll need to manually map all of the midi knobs, and the drum pads are sort of useless. My first midi keyboard though which is a pleasure to play and I’ve had a lot of fun with it, I’ll soon upgrade to a larger midi keyboard though, and keep this for working with synth vsts

    Perfektes Bundle zum Einstieg mit Ableton und Analog Lab lite. Gerade deswegen mit Abstand die beste mögliche Bestellung für Einsteiger. Auch Fortgeschrittene welchen es nur um das Midi geht sind perfekt bedient, da es lange hält, sehr schön designed ist und teurer wirkt als es ist. Lediglich das setup ist etwas ermüdend, lohnt sich aber auf jeden fall.

    Great midi controller

    First midi controller and very happy after a lot of research bought the minilab. Feels higher quality than the price and just works. Mapping all controls can be a pain, but works well with Arturia products (pigments 2 is awesome). Had some setup queries and customer service was fast and excellent, seem like passionate guys. Highly recommend Arturia and the minilab II.

    I am about to send it back. The minimal instructions directed me to a site that has nothing to do with registering and downloading the software. (Among other things, it directs me to an AARP site.) I am quite tech savvy but haven’t been able to get to even basic functionality. This is incredibly disappointed to me. I’ve spent hours trying to reach basic functionality and so far have not been able to use the product AS ADVERTISED. This product (and the accessories I ordered) is a total ripoff. DO NOT PURCHASE.

    Spitzen 25 Tasten Midi Keyboard

    Vorteile:-Stabile Bauweise und ein spitzen Keybed, sprich die Tasten selbst(so ziemlich die beste Bespielbarkeit eines 25 Tasten Keyboards das ich je probiert habe, ident mit den Tasten von Arturias Keylab Serie die wesentlich teurer sind. Wahnsinn was hier geboten wird, gerade im Vergleich zum leider sehr billig verarbeitet wirkenden Akai Mini Mk3 Keybed)16 Endless Knobs die alle sehr zügig reagieren und den Workflow wesentlich verbessern, außerdem lässt sich jeder Knob einzeln mappen-Perfekte Ableton Einbindung(man drückt Shift+Pad 8 in Ableton und schon sind alle Pads und Knobs perfekt für Ableton Funktionen gemappt)-Analog Lab Lite, obwohl eingeschränkt, bietet 500 richtig gute Synths die auch oft zum Einsatz kommen, endlich mal sinnvolle und nutzbare Software bei einem Midi.-Berührungsempfindliche Streifen statt Pitch und Mod Wheel gefallen mir nach Eingewöhnungsphase fast schon besser als das Wheel, ist aber GeschmackssacheNeutral:-Pads (haben natürlich bei weitem mehr Funktionen als nur Drumsounds, sind aber auch gut für Drums geeignet, vorallem wenn man die Velocity Curve selbst anpasst, fühlen sich meiner Meinung nach aber weit weniger tight und wertig an als die Akai-Pads-PortabilitätMit seinen 1,5 Kilo weniger handlich als andere Keyboards, dafür aber wie erwähnt hochwertig verbaut und bei Transport relativ unverwüstlich.Kann man ohne Probleme im Rucksack mitnehmen.Negativ:-Analog Lab Lite im Vergleich zum Minilab Mk1 nochmal reduziert.Wieviele Synths gibts dann beim Minilab Mk3 in der Lite Version,10 Stück?Cmon Arturia!Alles in allem einer der am hochwertigsten anmutenden Midi Controller mit richtig feinem Keybed und 16 modifizierbaren Knobs.Speziell für Ableton-User neben dem auch sehr guten Novation Launchkey Mini (welches auf Amazon um einiges kostspieliger ist) mit Sicherheit die beste Wahl!

    NO SAVE-NO EXPORT. Upgrade $70.00

    I sent it back. The free software doesn’t let you save or export work. Just finding the software on the site was a nightmare. Then to download you must navigate to other websites. The other sites request a password that isn’t given and so I spent additional time finding that I didn’t need it. Even though it kept saying – incorrect password. When I finally had everything installed … and every program takes forever to install, and longer to uninstall. To upgrade the software they are asking $70.00. Are you kidding?So I’m going to send it back. I’m going to Guitar Center and get what I need.

    WELCOME TO THE NIGHTMARE!!!

    Okay physically the item, the controller actually is built very solid and appears to be a top-notch quality unit . however the company has designed a nightmare registration and security process that is ridiculous you got serial numbers unlock codes activation files plus drivers to try and deal with to get the unit to work it is really ridiculous in my opinion…. it 100% ruins this product. I would not order this product nor any other from this company as they have gone overboard in trying to capture your email information in order to Market more products to you in the future. I understand business is business but as a musician I don’t want to deal with that kind of horse poop! PLUS, once you do get the product registered?? You can’t sell it to anyone else. As your name is locked into the unit. And it will not work for anyone else. I buy and sell audio equipment all the time. I see this new type of security system as being a nightmare!!It took 2 hours of trying, downloading, registering, re-registering, entering in numbers and codes… FORGET IT!!I WILL NEVER ORDER ANOTHER PRODUCT FROM ARTURIA!!THEY RUINED THEIR PRODUCT WITH YHIS REGISTRATION PROCESS!!Jim

    Didn’t work

    They are getting a solid three stars for customer service. They really tried hard to work with me and figure out my problems and they let me send it back when it was unsolvable after 9 months. Main issue was that a third of the keys didn’t work. It worked fine with Ableton live lite (the keys that worked).I advise people to really think about what their goals are. I was just starting out and I quickly realized 25 keys wasn’t enough for me as a pianist/ music producer. So I ordered a a-49 Roland midi keyboard. I also bought something with bigger pads (Akai).

    Smoothly playable instrument

    The action of the keys is so smooth and quiet. I have an older full-size controller, and I wish its keybed felt this good. The advantage of the endless rotary encoders versus knobs with hard-set min/max values is you don’t get sudden harsh jumps when the settings on the plugin preset don’t match the encoder positions. Instead it smoothly proceeds from wherever the preset is. The latest update made that even smoother.I’m very pleased with this purchase, especially now that the octave +/- buttons no longer blink when you shift the range, but stay solidly lit. That was awful because it never matched the bpm of the song I was playing. It was my only complaint, and it’s fixed now.

    Good Build…Software Issues

    Ok I bought this keyboard a few weeks ago, but I should have researched it more. It looks great, it feels great…but I reckon it ends all there. IF you are using Ableton than maybe this is a piece of kit you would be interested in but honestly if you are using Logic Pro X then I would say, give it a miss.The keys feel quite good and the size of the keys even though it’s a MINI keyboard are very good, the potentiometers (knobs) feel quite good, but they could be better…the pads are too small and often not as responsive especially when play drum fills or similar things.Now let’s go to the salient part…the software that comes with it to configure it and to do MIDI changes…MCC or Midi Control Centre…it is not as obvious as you might think to adjust and configure the knobs and pads to work with other VST plug ins…Ableton or Logic or whatever DAW you are planning to use.There is not much info online or for that matters on their website on how to do that…they kind of expect you to be a MIDI guru…it comes with a preset SHIFT+PAD1 that works with their plug in ANALOG LAB and for that plug in it works great (it has been programmed by Arturia and it is a READ ONLY file, you cannot change it) but from that to program the rest of the keyboard it has been headache after headache…I had to watch dozens of unofficial tutorials online to understand how to do that…their customer service keeps replying with custom made emails that say the same thing over and over. Also I thing that I didn’t like is that you can program 7 different MIDI Profiles by pressing SHIFT+PAD2, SHIFT+PAD3 and so on….for each one of them you can assign the knobs and pads to a certain midi channel…but the keys stay assigned to Midi channel 1…so while you are expecting the knobs and pads to control one plug in..when you play the keys sends signals to other channels.After 7 days of setting it up and working here and there and then 3 knobs stopped working and after few days and several reset the all keyboard came back to life…I ended up RETURNING it to Amazon.I hope it helps.

    Pretty cool,I like tooling around in analog lab 2 with it, only downside is I’m having trouble getting it to work in ableton live 9 standard 9.7.5 and the knobs are slightly wobbly, just got an email from arturia support which will hopefully sort it. Edit: I wasn’t arming the track lol and you have to manually assign the knobs in the effect window, the help window and walkthrough helped it make sense.

    Trying to decide? Buy this.

    I was looking into getting a brand new MIDI controller to up my production skills. And was having a difficult time trying to decide which would be best by researching as much as I could without actually trying them in person (youtube, reviews, etc etc.) May choices were narrowed down between the Arturia Minilab mk2 or the Novation Launchkey Mini 3. (I have ordered from AKAI before and they shipped me a damaged unit, DON’T BUY FROM THEM)Anyways, the Novation Launchkey had more drum pads which was intriguing… BUT all of my research showed that the quality of the Arturia Minilab is a standout selling point. It would almost be worth it for the software included alone. Analog Lab 4, although it is a lite version, it absolutely incredible and is how sampling/ROMplers should be done. All in all, completely satisfied with my purchase.One downside I see about my purchase (maybe others have similar experiences) is that the velocity drumpads work well but are a bit stiff. I believe these can be adjusted though..BTW be sure to upgrade your Firmware using the software center, it does improve the knobs and pads response.

A lovely device, if this is what you believe you require, solid build and very well laid out.

    Perfect for use with Analog Lab 3

    I just love this keyboard. It integrates really well with Analog Lab 3, plus I am gradually setting it up with the other soft synths I use (Z3TA+2, Studio One stock synths, other Arturia soft synths). It has also pretty much replaced my Roland A-500 49 key controller, except for times when I need the extra octaves (rarely). It also integrates very well with the Arturia KeyStep – another recent purchase with which I am overjoyed. Having spent twenty years using presets I have recently become hooked on tweaking and creating patches from scratch, and it’s in no small way due to this keyboard. Having loads of fun into the bargain.One teensy dislike is the finger strip instead of the wheel concept. Not a fan, but not worth dropping a star as everything else is so good.

    Love it. Creativity unlocked.

    I love it!!This has really helped open the floodgates of creativity for me. And I have barely scratched the surface of configuring knobs and pads and unlocking its full MIDI potential. Works out of the box to start creating I’ve used in in GarageBand, Ableton, and Logic with no issues.The keys are at a good scale for average size fingers and the feel of the key bed is very good, not at all flimsy. I’m sure the metal base has a lot to do with that.For me the value for money is high. Easy to use as a beginner. It may be a little on the big side (approximately 15” laptop size) if portability is main concern but it will fit in a backpack if required.

    Excellent piece of kit, I was really surprised at how solid the keyboard felt not flimsy plastic at all.Great starter choice of starter software included, but I was tempted to upgrade quickly as it is such good fun

    BEST MIDI KEYBOARD

    The best MIDI controller at this price range, with lots of bundled software which are worth as equal as this controller’s price! Comes with a DAW! What else do you need? 16 assignable knobs are very helpful.

    Great product. Everything works as it should. *EDIT* Not Quite What I Thought?

    Nothing stellar as far as DAW integration with the exception of Arturia instruments, but I didn’t buy it for fancy controls.Keybed is quality and pads are better than expected. Pitch and modulation strips are responsive. Keyboard response is maybe slightly slower than I expected, and the keys are a slightly stiffer press than I imagined, but hardly a complaint and it works well in its element. Build quality is superb and nothing feels flimsy. I don’t feel the need to be ginger with it whatsoever.Edit: Changed review score from 4 stars to 3I’ve noticed some notes tend to stick. The keys themselves don’t stick at all, but occasionally when playing a chord progression or quick run, one of the notes will continue playing until the key is struck again or playback/recording is stopped. This seems like a software issue, because if something physical was sticking inside the keyboard, the note shouldn’t cease playing whenever playback stops. I’m running all the latest firmware and drivers, and have encountered this issue numerous times in two different DAWs. It’s an easy enough problem to fix in the midi editor, but it’s just really distracting, and more often than not I find it causes me to end up making more mistakes. Just frustrating really.Another gripe I have is the encoders. I don’t know if it’s a side effect of offering endless encoders at this price range instead of fixed position knobs, but they just suck sometimes. They can be very finicky, sometimes turning the encoder the slightest bit can cause whatever value you’re altering to jump dramatically, while other times, turning the encoder too fast might cause the value to respond in the opposite direction; for instance, turning an encoder too quickly to increase reverb mix on a synth will occasionally cause the reverb mix parameter to drop down rather than rise up. I have no idea what causes this, but I’ve almost completely stopped using the encoders because of it.It’s a fine enough midi keyboard, and maybe it’s just me, but it seems like its really beginning to show its age. The keybed is still the best of the best at this price range, the pads are perfectly functional, I like the pitch and modulation strips, and the thing just feels super beefy and durable. I bought this because I needed something that I could count on to not fail after a year of use, and as far as I’m concerned, this was still the right choice in this price range for a durable device to stand the test of time. However, I paid for 16 encoders, which are largely useless to me now. The keybed feels amazing, but the response time is slower than I expected, and I’ve got midi notes sticking. It’s built well, but it’s a little clunky to use, probably due to its age.The bundled software is hardly competitive with other brands at this price range. Arturia has been depreciating Analog Lab over the last two years in an effort to boost sales of their other products. Analog Lab no longer offers complete instruments, only instrument presets with a seemingly random selection of parameters you can adjust. This means you can only slightly tweak your sounds within the plugin, any other audio treatment you want to do is going to have to be part of an effects chain. It was really handy as a complete beginner, but it becomes less and less useful by the day. It comes with a pretty trusty piano instrument as well, and lite versions of Ableton Live and Pro Tools. Compared to the various softwares packaged with keyboards from brands like Novation and Native Instruments, both of which offer Ableton Live Lite and a substantial library of other useful plugins and effects, the Minilab’s bundled software is a joke, unless DEFINITELY plan on using Pro Tools.Bottom line: For my money, if you want the BEST midi keyboard at this price range, this one’s not it. I’ve seen MUCH better features AND performance out of the new Launchkey Mini model from Novation, the Komplete Kontrol M32 from Native Instruments, or the Akai MPK Minis. I wouldn’t count on those keyboards holding up as long as this one with regular use, and they’ve all got their shortcomings, but from a performance and workflow standpoint, I think they’re the better choices.

    Posiblemente el mejor controlador MIDI en su rango de precios

    Lo primero que llama la atención al sacarlo de la caja es su robustez. Pesa un poquito, pero es a cambio de una construcción solida que se nota desde el principio. El tacto y sensaciones de las teclas, los pads y los knobs es realmente buena.Lo mejor:- Contrucción y funcionamiento.- Software incluido, especialmente el Mini Lab 4. El Ableton Live Lite no lo he probado pues uso FL Studio.- Por solo ser cliente Arturia tienes productos software adicionales con un importante descuento (Analog Lab, V Collection, Pigments,…).- La instalación y activación del software es realmente sencilla mediante el Software Center de Arturia.- Una de las joyas incluidas es el Arturia Midi Control Center que permite de manera muy sencilla asignar comandos midi a cada PAD, knob,… o incluso cambiar la respuesta de algunos controles. Como ejemplo, me parecía que los pads requerían de mucha fuerza para activarlos a una velocity por encima de 100. Así que entré en esta aplicación y cambié su respuesta de lineal a exponencial y problema resuelto.- Me han sorprendido las “ruedas” táctiles de modulación y pitch bend que eliminan la parte mecánica (y por tanto aumenta su durabilidad) y cuya respuesta es bastante buena.Lo peor:- El cable USB es realmente corto y es el elemento de peor calidad de todo el conjunto. Tuve que usar otro que tenía para poder conectarlo al PC que tengo en el suelo.- El software UVI Grand Piano Model D tiene un sonido increible, pero implica crear dos cuentas de usuario adicionales (UVI portal + ILOK account) e instalarse no solo el VST sino además un software adicional de gestión de licencias (parecido al de Steinberg). Todo ello además complejo de activar e instalar. Sería mucho mejor que Arturia regalase alguno de sus fantásticos sintetizadores evitando todo este lío.- El precio para actualizar el Analog Lab 4 de la versión lite a la completa pone en los papeles incluidos con el teclado que es de 29€, sin embargo entras en la web y pone 69€. Sin embargo un correo a su soporte técnico solucionó el problema asignando un cupón de descuento.En definitiva, muy buena compra y muy recomendable.

    NO SAVE-NO EXPORT. Upgrade $70.00

    I sent it back. The free software doesn’t let you save or export work. Just finding the software on the site was a nightmare. Then to download you must navigate to other websites. The other sites request a password that isn’t given and so I spent additional time finding that I didn’t need it. Even though it kept saying – incorrect password. When I finally had everything installed … and every program takes forever to install, and longer to uninstall. To upgrade the software they are asking $70.00. Are you kidding?So I’m going to send it back. I’m going to Guitar Center and get what I need.

    While plugging in the USB cable, the jack disintegrated. Tried to get online help for a replacement but impossible. What a waste of over $100. Unless they are willing to replace after only a few uses, I would recommend you stay away from this controller!

    Don’t waste your time.

    This thing sucks. It’s built and billed as this durable product, and it certainly has the weight for that, but 4 of the knobs broke off after about a few months of use. A few months! I wasn’t even being rough with the thing. All of the keys are sticky now (despite me being completely clean with the device), and the drumpads are barely responsive so I have to practically slam my fingers on them to produce any results. Buy something else!

    Acabado impresionantes. El tacto de los pad y las teclas muy bueno. Es verdad que no he podido comprar con otro pero la sensibilidad del teclado es genial, puedes pulsar subiendo la fuerza progresivamente hasta al menos 5 veces.. y si le pegas fuerte se oyen como saltan las cuerdas de la guitarra.Portable y alimentado por el mismo USB.Viene un código para descargar el Analog LAB y comprobado tanto en Ableton Live como en FL Studio que reconoce el plugin de este.

    Not a tiny toy midi keyboard, feels like almost an instrument. The arrangement of the pads is mehhh. If you really plan to take it with you in a backpack on a regular basis not the best option. Grand Piano, Ableton Live Lite and Arturia Lab Lite that comes with are amazing and enough for a beginner DAW user. Arturia customer service is very helpful and responsive. Overall it is a great value for money.

    It’s OK

    Feels nice and meaty . My only gripe is 3 of the keys squeek like crazy when I use it. I’m hoping this goes away overtime . Also the software that comes with it is useless because I make music in FL studio and would rather use that than a lite version of the software it comes with .

    Only has one major short coming.

    First the bad. People buy Midi controllers to avoid using mouse and keyboard. Lack of transport controls on a Midi controller is a fatal flaw…like, it is the whole point of using one.The good. For a mini keyboard the key bed is super good. The build quality of the entire unit is pretty noteworthy. It may work for alot of things but it is easy to get lost on which track you are on in session view of ableton with only one row of pads. That may not be a big issue for some folks because you can actually scroll through using the octave up and down but it is hard to me. I would have learned to get used to it but no transport controls or any real intuitive way to assign them to use with Ableton made me return it for the Novation MiniLaunch MK3. Note: The Novation build quality is nowhere close but being useable and functional trumps aesthetics at the end of the day.

    Great build quality and bundled software, but very frustrating to control VSTs with knobs

    I loved+ the build quality+ the feel of the keys/knobs/pads+ the included AnalogLab software (lots of fun sounds!)I did not like:- VST control using the endless rotary knobs. This was extremely frustrating.If you plan to use your MiniLab to modulate settings for non-Arturia VSTs, then I recommend you go with a different midi controller with knobs that have min/max values.Here are more details about the VST control problems:There are two main modes for knobs: Absolute and Relative.Using the knobs in “Absolute” mode is very tricky because, without min/max bounds on the knobs, you don’t know what the current value is; so when you change tracks, you either get large jumps in settings or (if you turn on “soft takeover” in your DAW) you have to spin the knob blindly to hunt for the “takeover” point.Using the knobs in “Relative” mode is also frustrating: instead of just sending one value for “+1” and one value for “-1” when turning the knob in either direction, Arturia uses a special system where the knobs send different values for how fast you spin the knobs. This seems clever, but none of the DAWs that I tried (Ableton Live and Reaper) actually support this. What this means is that, in “Relative” mode, the DAW will only recognize the knob’s input if you turn it slowly enough to register +/- 1. There’s one way around this: you can turn off “Knob Acceleration”, so that no matter how fast you turn the knob, it only returns +/- 1. However, the result of doing this is that the knob is way too slow! For example, I have to turn the knob 5-6 full rotations to move a VST’s knob from min to max.

    Flimsy keys (might return)

    I bought the big model of this keyboard for about $500 and the springs eventually started to pop out of place in some keys. I bought this mini model to travel with and it is just like their bigger model. Its pretty but if you get groovy when you’re feeling the music, and hit the keys hard, avoid this piano. Springs will give if you are not super soft-handed.

    Well Made, Excellent Value MIDI Controller WIth Brialliant Software Extras

    Just a quick review (for a change). The MiniLab Mk II is a terrific little controller. It’s footprint is pretty much exactly the same as my 15″laptop, which makes it ridiculously portable and a perfect fit in my tiny studio. The keys are great – the days of mini keys being horrible is a dim, distant memory these days – and it works really well with all my software, straight out of the box. For the money it is really well made and feels like it will last ages. I also have a KeyStep to use on stage and the two instruments complement each other nicely.Analog Lab, the lite version of which is bundled with the controller, is a really nice software instrument that works as a standalone or as a plugin inside your sequencing software. When you register, you get the offer of an upgrade to the full version for just $29, which is a no-brainer. It is normally $99 so what you are really doing is buying the software and getting a high quality controller for thirty bucks. You can’t go wrong with that!

    The Keyboard looks and feels great. The analog lab 4 software that comes with it is so fun to play around with all the sounds.My issue is with the drum pads; they are too hard and are very stiff and inconsistent when playing them. Also, the Ableton Live Lite that is suppose to come with this keyboard did not have a verification Serial # so I can’t save anything that I record in the DAW…. so then whats the point of having it? Overall, 4/5.

    So much better than the MPC Mini MK2!

    I originally bought the MPC Mini, but as soon as I got it and played the keyboard I was super bummed. Here I’d bought one of the most popular mini keyboards sold today and I discovered that the keys are just cheap pieces of plastic that flex every time you play them. The Arturia on the other hand has AMAZING feeling keys. The entire keyboard just seems better in terms of overall quality relative to the MPC. I really don’t get the love people have for the MPC Mini when you comapre it to something like this Arturia.If, like me, you are on the fence about which to get, just spend the 10 extra bucks for the Arturia MiniLab. The keyboard feels amazing, the pads, sliders, and nobs work great, the software it comes with is simple and works well, and it’s just an overall better quality product. The only reason one might go with the MPC is if they care a great deal about having big pads or need some of the unique control features that the MPC offers and the Arturia doesn’t. But, if all you are looking for is a small quality keyboard to make melodies and beats, this is the controller for you.

    I use this for production in Ableton Live and it works great. The knobs feel excellent and overall the build quality is amazing. The only slight problem is that the keys are very small, but that’s to be expected in such a compact keyboard with so many functions. The included software (MIDI control center) is excellent for customizing how the drum pads and knobs work. Will definitely purchase Arturia products in the future.

    Didn’t work

    They are getting a solid three stars for customer service. They really tried hard to work with me and figure out my problems and they let me send it back when it was unsolvable after 9 months. Main issue was that a third of the keys didn’t work. It worked fine with Ableton live lite (the keys that worked).I advise people to really think about what their goals are. I was just starting out and I quickly realized 25 keys wasn’t enough for me as a pianist/ music producer. So I ordered a a-49 Roland midi keyboard. I also bought something with bigger pads (Akai).

    Best mini keys, lackluster knobs, and bad drum pads (also, software hassle)

    First, the mini keys are the best I’ve used. I think the main reason for this is the key travel distance. These keys go about twice as deep as any mini keys I’ve used. It is nowhere near a real piano key, but it is a lot more satisfying than other mini keys.On to the knobs. First things first: the knobs do not have a uniform resistance. That is to say that some feel looser than others (rotate more easily) which makes using them a little frustrating. You definitely have to watch the software parameter you are controlling and rotate the knobs very precisely. This is exacerbated by the sometimes jumpy knob controls. I know that the jumpiness is not an insurmountable issue as I also use a Midifighter Twister which has very good, smooth knobs.Lastly, the Drum Pads are not very good. They require a lot of force to actuate. It’s not impossible, but good luck making any use of the velocity sensitivity. My unit exhibits an issue where the drum pads will sometimes trigger twice with one press. It was initially very bad, but I updated the firmware and it mostly sorted itself out. I say mostly because it still happens, but about 50-25% as often. (I ran into one issue when recording midi from the keys that seems like a similar double-note problem, but it only happened once).Software!It comes with a bunch of synths, an Ableton Live Lite key, and a grand piano. I found it bothersome that the Arturia synths required me to install a separate “Arturia Software Center” in order to download them. I also had to download the “Midi Control Center” in order to update the Firmware. So know, for this one device, I have 2 otherwise-useless programs installed just to use the included synths properly.

I pad non sono morbidissimi ma vanno regolati in quanto stabdart potrebbero avere un allungamento note ! Esteticamente e fisicamente robusta! L’unica nota negativa per ora devo farla alla spedizione che mi e stata spedita nella scatola originale del prodotto senza un apposita custodia esterna che coprisse i colpi della tastiera questo lo trovo un pecca in quanto la scatola a qualche graffio e poteva subite grossi danni !

    Very Well Made, Nice Keys

    This was my first midi keyboard. Now that I have it and have used it, I would buy a different keyboard for my needs. I will never use the pads, etc that it has, but that is me … not the product. It’s super well made and good value for the money. It’s just designed more for the electronic dance music person rather than someone who wants to create guitar, piano and orchestral music. If you are thinking of buying one, think carefully if you want the pads and dials as maybe you only want the keys themselves and not too much more. On the other hand the price is low and it is fun to have it.

I have had it for only a few minutes and it connected automatically with no hassle (I have had connectivity issues with other makes and models) and knobs are evened mapped. Keys feel a bit cheap but that is expected for most keyboard based tools. The materials and weight feel great and I haven’t even tried with ableton yet. Plus it’s adorable.

En la descripción ampliada menciona en lite, que es lo que obtienes y es una versión casi de prueba.

    Keys are magnificent. But also has it’s downside.

    Feel & Responsiveness of the Keys are magnificent.Just wish they had more midi transport controls. Like Play/Pause, Record, Roll & Arrpegiator.Should they had these controls, even if for $30 more. I would give it 5 Stars.

    Trying to decide? Buy this.

    I was looking into getting a brand new MIDI controller to up my production skills. And was having a difficult time trying to decide which would be best by researching as much as I could without actually trying them in person (youtube, reviews, etc etc.) May choices were narrowed down between the Arturia Minilab mk2 or the Novation Launchkey Mini 3. (I have ordered from AKAI before and they shipped me a damaged unit, DON’T BUY FROM THEM)Anyways, the Novation Launchkey had more drum pads which was intriguing… BUT all of my research showed that the quality of the Arturia Minilab is a standout selling point. It would almost be worth it for the software included alone. Analog Lab 4, although it is a lite version, it absolutely incredible and is how sampling/ROMplers should be done. All in all, completely satisfied with my purchase.One downside I see about my purchase (maybe others have similar experiences) is that the velocity drumpads work well but are a bit stiff. I believe these can be adjusted though..BTW be sure to upgrade your Firmware using the software center, it does improve the knobs and pads response.

    Drum pads are non responsive keys are good enough

    The drum pads are not responsive which makes it kind of useless especially when using the pitch shift which slows down the responsiveness of the drum pads even more. Everything works okay. Another thing was that i had to send multiple emails just to get the products which came with it as the key does not work and i still have not got the grand piano plug in which comes with it

    Best mini keys, lackluster knobs, and bad drum pads (also, software hassle)

    First, the mini keys are the best I’ve used. I think the main reason for this is the key travel distance. These keys go about twice as deep as any mini keys I’ve used. It is nowhere near a real piano key, but it is a lot more satisfying than other mini keys.On to the knobs. First things first: the knobs do not have a uniform resistance. That is to say that some feel looser than others (rotate more easily) which makes using them a little frustrating. You definitely have to watch the software parameter you are controlling and rotate the knobs very precisely. This is exacerbated by the sometimes jumpy knob controls. I know that the jumpiness is not an insurmountable issue as I also use a Midifighter Twister which has very good, smooth knobs.Lastly, the Drum Pads are not very good. They require a lot of force to actuate. It’s not impossible, but good luck making any use of the velocity sensitivity. My unit exhibits an issue where the drum pads will sometimes trigger twice with one press. It was initially very bad, but I updated the firmware and it mostly sorted itself out. I say mostly because it still happens, but about 50-25% as often. (I ran into one issue when recording midi from the keys that seems like a similar double-note problem, but it only happened once).Software!It comes with a bunch of synths, an Ableton Live Lite key, and a grand piano. I found it bothersome that the Arturia synths required me to install a separate “Arturia Software Center” in order to download them. I also had to download the “Midi Control Center” in order to update the Firmware. So know, for this one device, I have 2 otherwise-useless programs installed just to use the included synths properly.

    First midi controller and very happy after a lot of research bought the minilab. Feels higher quality than the price and just works. Mapping all controls can be a pain, but works well with Arturia products (pigments 2 is awesome). Had some setup queries and customer service was fast and excellent, seem like passionate guys. Highly recommend Arturia and the minilab II.

    WELCOME TO THE NIGHTMARE!!!

    Okay physically the item, the controller actually is built very solid and appears to be a top-notch quality unit . however the company has designed a nightmare registration and security process that is ridiculous you got serial numbers unlock codes activation files plus drivers to try and deal with to get the unit to work it is really ridiculous in my opinion…. it 100% ruins this product. I would not order this product nor any other from this company as they have gone overboard in trying to capture your email information in order to Market more products to you in the future. I understand business is business but as a musician I don’t want to deal with that kind of horse poop! PLUS, once you do get the product registered?? You can’t sell it to anyone else. As your name is locked into the unit. And it will not work for anyone else. I buy and sell audio equipment all the time. I see this new type of security system as being a nightmare!!It took 2 hours of trying, downloading, registering, re-registering, entering in numbers and codes… FORGET IT!!I WILL NEVER ORDER ANOTHER PRODUCT FROM ARTURIA!!THEY RUINED THEIR PRODUCT WITH YHIS REGISTRATION PROCESS!!Jim

    Solid little keyboard

    I looked at a few mini sized keyboards, but what swung it for me was the sixteen rotary knobs on this little Arturia. What surprised me when it arrived is how sturdy it is. It is not cheap plastic and is actually quite heavy for its size. So far it has exceeded my expectations. I am using it with FL Studio 12 in my home studio. I have larger full sized keyboards as well, as I am a piano player, but sometimes it is just good to switch on the computer and get some beats going. For this the Arturia minilab is ideal. It comes with some good software as well. Recommended.

    Not too bad, bad not too good.

    The bad: small keys, only 25 of them, making playing quite clumsy, does not have its own windows dedicated driver so it uses native Windows drivers, which make the device in certain condition unavailable and consequently not selectable. Also there are no MIDI connectors, which would workaround the above problem.The good: Portability, USB powered and nice MIDI CC.

    not as good as it seems.

    When I first got this little controller I was pretty happy with it. The build quality felt professional and solid, the design was nice, and I figured it’d obviously play well with my various Arturia VSTs in the Reaper DAW. The keys seems nice and full with a nice amount of give and weight.As I got around to installing things and trying to get it to work … the picture got a little iffier. While the keyboard is basically plug n play, getting the knobs properly assigned is a bigger headache than it needs to be. You have to (or at least it first appears you have to) assign the sensitivities of the knobs through an Arturia software app that is just annoying to use all around. Once you get past that, it’s still very fiddly getting knobs properly assigned with the kind of response correlation you expect, even on Arturia’s own apps.While this was disappointing, you can actually bypass the Arturia app I later realized, and in most cases I could at least manage the basic assignments I wanted with a little bit of elbow grease. But then other little things started bugging me. The USB connector is incredibly flimsy and it’s easy for the cord to wobble around or even pop out. It’s also positioned in a way that is very inconvenient relative to my tabletop/desktop set-up. The pad buttons feel sluggish and unresponsive, but in fairness I don’t use pad buttons much, so I’m not sure if that’s unique to the product or just symptomatic of why I’ve never gravitated towards using those kinds of buttons in the first place.Even with all of this, I still felt that overall I had a reasonably decent if somewhat fiddly controller that looked and felt good on the whole. Then one — maybe two — of the keys started acting weird. They just will flake out and not trigger the note being pressed periodically, maybe once in every 8 or 9 presses. This only seemed to affect 1 or 2 specific keys.That was kind of the final straw, given that I spent $100+ on the thing. In the time since my purchase, I’ve read that Arturia keys have a bit of a reputation for being … not-stellar. They look good and make a good first impression, but I’m not sure the build quality under the hood is really there.I write this review maybe 2 years after purchase? Something like that. I don’t use MIDI controllers a lot so I’ve managed with it for this long, but I’m now shopping for a replacement and figured I’d leave my experience with this one. I’ve heard some of the Korg’s are pretty good so I’ll probably try one of theirs.

    learning how to produce beats but I did not want to spend a fortune.

There are so many sounds that come with the program the possibilities are endless.You also have the option of updating to even gain more instrumentals and sounds. I would recommend this controller to anyone who wants to learn more about music production or mixing.

    The Keyboard looks and feels great. The analog lab 4 software that comes with it is so fun to play around with all the sounds.My issue is with the drum pads; they are too hard and are very stiff and inconsistent when playing them. Also, the Ableton Live Lite that is suppose to come with this keyboard did not have a verification Serial # so I can’t save anything that I record in the DAW…. so then whats the point of having it?

    Deberían mejorar los pads y compatibilidad con FL

    Recién estrenado puedo decir lo siguiente:-Construcción robusta y diseño agradable.-Teclas muy buenas en comparación con otros controladores.-Knobs infinitos, he leído comentarios de que son duros, personalmente no me lo parecen para nada, por el precio no se puede pedir más, al contrario.-Los pads es una de las dos notas negativas, no es que sean pequeños, pero digamos que van justos, y están algo duros, supongo que con el uso se ablandarán.-La otra nota negativa es por la integración con FL Studio. Se puede configurar totalmente, pero es muy tedioso, aunque puedes encontrar por internet los presets de otros usuarios e instalarlos.Conclusión, un 9/10, pero si usas Fruity Loops y no vas a cambiar por nada del mundo (y tienes presupuesto) igual te conviene comprar otra cosa (creo que otros modelos más avanzados de arturia si tienen presets nativos para la compatibilidad con FL Studio).

    Ottimo controller midi per iniziare (ma anche per usi semi-professionali-hobbistici)

    E’ il primo controller che compro, dopo aver usato per registrare in MIDI tastiere “normali” per suonare.Partiamo da uno dei fattori a cui do più peso : la resistenza e la qualità dei materiali. Questa Arturia MKII è fatta decisamente bene rispetto ad altri controller MIDI di questa fascia di prezzo che ho avuto modo di tastare di persona e che sembrano costruiti con l’aria. Ha un design sobrio e la qualità dei materiali è buona e da parvenza di solidità.I tasti sono ovviamente più piccoli di quelli di una normale tastiera, ma ci si fa presto l’abitudine. C’è da dire che i PAD così come sono risultano poco sensibili utilizzando Ableton, ma si può ovviare a tale problema regolando la loro sensibilità tramite il software Arturia e con qualche altro piccolo accorgimento. La libreria di synth a disposizione è davvero buona.Punto di forza di questa MIDI è senza dubbio la portabilità : entra facilmente in uno zaino ed occupa poco spazio su una scrivania con le sue due ottave, che se ben usate non risultano poi così limitanti.Questo strumento da tutto quello che ci si può aspettare da un prodotto a questo prezzo, ribadisco però che sono stato colpito dalla qualità della libreria fornita con Analog Lab e dalla qualità costruttiva.La consiglio per approcciarsi al mondo della scrittura in MIDI, e ritengo che una volta raggiunta la completa padronanza sia di hardware che software si possono raggiungere risultati più che soddisfacenti.

    Quality Build, Durable

    The Mini Lab MkII has a quality build. The keys, the knobs and pads are all well done. It’s not light weight but, is very durable. I would carry the extra weight because it’s build quality and apparent durability.The limitless knobs a are perfect design choice. Moving from one instrument to another doesn’t require that the knobs physically reset to the previous instrument. You just pick up where you were.Arturia provided a firmware patch which fixed the blinking octave lights. They did not blink with your DAW (like a metronome) so it was distracting. The patch fixed that. The lights glow solid now, no blinking.The pads were double and triple firing when playing rapid patterns. The patch appears to have fixed that issue too.The modulator and bend pads are preferable to me They are much more flexible than the standard wheels. I can put a finger down in a specific spot without sliding there. That opens up interesting options of playability the wheels don’t provided. And, of course you can slide your finger and you have the standard wheel action.It comes with Analog Lab 4, a collection of classic keyboards, including my favorite the Hammond B-3. The MkII is worth the money for that collection alone.It interfaces with your DAW so you can control parameters right from the the keyboard. I have a full 88 key keyboard but, I use the MkII more now.5 stars for this little beauty.

    Like with caveats

    I’m an Arturia guy. I also have a MicroBrute, Keystep, Pigments and their V Collection 7. I got this as a desktop module for Ableton, and it’s pretty seamless for that purpose, allowing a great amount of built-in automatic control once you connect by MIDI (painlessly). The knobs are endless and have the right amount of pushback to offer refinement. The pads are tight for nice control. My one issue is that I wanted to take this on vacation to practice some songs. It’s great for one-handed use on stage, for sure. But any sort of two-handed playing is about 5 keys too short of any but the most basic one-octave riffs on the right, and too short for a standard G-chord on the left. So I ended up taking my Keystep instead (also one key short on the second octave right, but overall much more useful). I’d say if I want to “play piano” I probably have to size up to a wider bed. But for quick riffs where you can manually adjust the octave range up/down as you loop, this is great, super tough, comes with great software, and has nice responsive (springy) velocity keys.

    No aftertouch even though it has same keybed as the Keystep (which has aftertouch)

    Returned mine because astoundingly it does not have aftertouch, even though it uses a shortened version of the Keystep’s 32 note keybed which has it. My fault for not reading the specs, but I never even gave a second thought to the possibility that it wouldn’t have aftertouch seeing that the similar-priced Keystep has it. Nearly all of the sounds with the included Analog Lab software need aftertouch to exploit them fully, especially the CS80 presets (no surprise). I don’t know what they were smoking over there in France when they sat round the boardroom table and decided to leave aftertouch off the features list.

    Great MIDI Keyboard

    Loving it so far, perfect integration with Ableton. The Analog Lab sound bank is great, too. Only throwback is that the upgrade price for the full Analog Lab went up considerably. (updated May 2019) Grand Piano software that also comes with it has a beautiful sound.Keyboard feels very well made and compared with other ones I tried for this price range, its the best option in quality. Drum pads are nice too, they do a great job at pressure sensibility.I recommend it 100%!

    Perfecto para disfrutar creando música

    Es la primera vez que tengo un controlador midi, tenia una idea preconcebida (no muy buena) respecto a estos aparatos y me sorprendio poder generar musica a la primera gracias a los presets que trae el teclado, su integración co Ableton es total con FLstudio 20 no es muy buena pero creo que no tardaran en arreglarlo, en fin una compra muy positiva para mi, la calidad del producto se nota al abrir el empaque a lo mejor a un experto en producir música no le sea muy util pero para un novel es un buen arranque, el sofware Analog Lab 4 lo puedes actualizar por 29 euros escribiendo al servicio de venta de arturia y ya tienes mas de 5 mil sonidos de teclados para disfrutar.

    Very good MIDI controller

    A really well built piece of kit that is sturdy and feels like it would travel well.Key action is good for the money – doesn’t feel like a piano by any stretch – but very good for the money none-the-less.

    Allora, regalato ad una mia amica ci ho smanettato parecchio, insomma, se siete neofiti non è che proprio in due giorni diventerete i Daft Punk.Il prodotto è leggerissimo ma l’impressione è che sia ben costruito, i software si scaricano, installano (e funzionano) velocemente.Insomma, 100 euro spesi più che bene.4 stelle perché in effetti sembrava più alla portata di tutti, se avete modo di dedicarci tempo e/o ci capite già di sti cosi, acquistatelo senza pensarci.

    El aparato en si, es más de lo que me esperaba en todos los aspectos, es muy sólido, no se siente como si fuera de juguete, los knobs de control (1 y 9)son geniales para el Analog Lab y para adaptarlos a otro plugins, funciona perfecto con todos los plugins, las teclas geniales, los pads perfectos, lo mejor que he visto, de seguro uno de los mejores controladores midi que han salido, dará de que hablar. Además viene con Analog Lab Lite y Ableton live lite.

    Great Hardware, Fraudulent Software

    This is a very nice controller. It’s laid out well, the build quality is terrific, the feel the keys is great and it’s a great value. The “included software” is a scam, however. To “unlock” the virtual instruments, you have to enter a serial number and an unlock code. However, the serial number of the controller doesn’t work and they don’t provide you with an unlock code. You also have to go through a cumbersome process to create an account for each piece or software, only to discover at the end of the process that you don’t have the unlock code. Buy this for the hardware. The software is a fraud perpetuated on the public.

    Great first controller

    I cant stop playing with this thing . It’s been a lot of fun fiddling around with Analog lab that I think I wanna buy the extended library of their sounds. But be aware they dont offer it to Minilab MK2 buyers for 29 USD anymore, that price has since gone up to 69 USD. That would be my only gripe for this midi controller, that the deal on extra sounds isnt as advertised.Other than that it’s a fantastic controller. I would have liked more sensitive pads but I dont know what the standard for pads is since this is my first piece of midi hardware.

    Tolles Midi-Gerät

    Hab den Arturia MKII jetzt ne ganze Weile und er macht mir eine Menge Spaß. Benutze ihn in Ableton Live, aber auch mal unterwegs oder auf dem Balkon am Android Smartphone zb. mit der APP DRC Synthesizer. Die Verarbeitung ist für den Preis echt okay und an die kleinen Tasten gewöhnt man sich schnell. Klar, jemand der jetzt umfangreich “Piano” spielen möchte, für den sind die Tasten zu wenig, aber dafür ist das Gerät auch nicht ausgelegt und man kann auch mit den wenigen Tasten tolle Musik da raus zaubern. Und dank der kompakten Größe findet er zum einen auf jedem Schreibtisch Platz, kann aber auch gut für unterwegs mitgenommen werden. Softwareseitig auf jeden Fall noch zu empfehlen ist, dass zum einen Analob Lab Lite 4 und Ableton Live 10 Lite es mit dazu gibt. Klar, könnte man jetzt sagen, schade das es nur die Lite Versionen sind, aber man muss sich auch verinnerlichen was diese beiden Softwareprogramme sonst kosten. Und mit den Liteversionen kann man auch schon einiges anstellen, wobei natürlich der Umfang in Ableton LIve Lite stark eingeschränkt ist, aber für Leute die noch nichts haben oder gerade am Anfang stehen, ist das erstmal ausreichend um erste Erfahrungen zu sammeln. Und die Arturia Lab 4 Lite kann man zudem zu einem vergünstigten Preis upgraden und bekommt dafür dann viele tausend Presets, wovon sich viele echt gut hören lassen können. Alles in Allem ein gutes Gerät für Leute die ein kompaktes Gerät haben wollen, sowohl für zuhause als auch unterwegs, aber dennoch viel damit anstellen können.

    Divertentissima!

    È la prima tastiera che compro: costruttivamente solida, finiture impeccabili, non percepisco cedimenti o flessioni, anche i controlli e i pad sono robusti; il software incluso è comodo, si integra bene anche con Cakewalk (daw gratuita) e comodissima coi plugin di Arturia (impeccabili) che hanno i controlli pre-impostati.Se proprio devo trovargli un difetto è che trovo sia indicata principalmente per i beat-makers più che per imparare lo strumento o eseguire brani, per le dimensioni e, ovviamente, per le ottave limitate. Piuttosto sicuro che presto acquisterò la “sorella maggiore”.

    I’m a total beginner to making music and have so far found this a blast to use! The free Analoglab software is superb, but I soon upgraded to the full package to get the full amount of synths and effects packs. It was worthwhile as you get a massive discount for doing so.This is a great piece of hardware and feels sturdy. It’s literally plug and play!

    Sin ser músico…perfecto!

    No soy músico, simplemente soy aficionado de crear música. Y con ese “nivel”, para mi es perfecto. No se si mejor o peor que otras alternativas, pero hace todo lo que necesito. Y aun sin ser un experto, noto las teclas como razonablemente buenas. No son de juguete o enanos. Tienen un tamaño bueno y un recorrido y tacto muy aceptable para algo de este tamaño y precio.De funcionalidad es básico, las 25 teclas, 8 pads y 16 ruedas, todos asignables. No tiene funciones tipo arpegios ya incluido…todo tiene que ir por Software. Hablando de software, viene con Ableton Live Lite y Analog Lab Lite…ojo…LITE…es decir limitado. Por lo que veo, la limitación es principalmente en una colección de instrumentos más reducida. Pero para mi y cualquier principiante, más que de sobra. Creo que merece mas la pena aprender usar bien Ableton Live como DAW que estar pasando por miles de instrumentos.El MiniLab está pre-configurado para usar esos dos programas y funciona bien. Usarlo con otros programas, funciona (lo he probado con Reason), funcionan a la primera las teclas, pero las ruedas y los pads tendrás que asignarlas a mano, que es una tarea tediosa. Pero de verdad, si quiere empezar a hacer música, con este teclado y los dos programas que tiene incluido, tienes más que de sobra para hacer una canción entera. Si no lo consigues, no es problema del hardware o software :)Como única pega quizás comentar que para poner en marcha el software (Ableton Live, Analog Lab y Grand Piano), tienes que tomarte tu tiempo porque tendrás que registrarte en multiples sitios e instalarte multiples instaladores. No es algo muy directo.

    Impeccabile, se non fosse che..

    Il prodotto è perfetto, soprattutto considerando il pezzo, le levette del mixer vanno bene, i pulsanti sono semi pesati e vanno da dio, il sistema per modificare il pitch di tipo touch va alla grande, ci sono solo due cose che proprio non vanno, l’integrazione con fl studio e i drum pad, se con fl studio si può risolvere rimappando i tasti tramite il software e(ci sono anche pacchetti che si trovano su Internet che ve la impostano perfettamente) i drumpad sono completamente INAFFIDABILI, se utilizzate molto i drumpad andate su altro, senza dubbio

    Enttäuschend

    Nach zwei Wochen gelegentlichen Gebrauchst begannen Tasten manchmal zu hängen. Der Ton lief einfach weiter bis zum nächsten Anschlag, und zwar unabhängig welche Software genutzt wurde. Das war zwar der Auslöser, warum ich es retourniert habe, aber es gibt weitere Mängel, mit denen ich eventuell noch zurechtgekommen wäre.Aber beginnen wir von vorne. Ich habe es ausgewählt weil es von ein paar Influencern genutzt wird. Die Rezessionen waren relativ gut. Wenig Latenz ist mir wichtig, und in diesem Punkt war der Kontroller gut. Die Software war OK, auch wenn sie als Plugin in Waveform 11 Probleme gemacht hat bei der Bildschirmskalierung.Der Ersteindruck ist gemischt. Einerseits wirkt das Arturia edel, weiss mit dem Holz-look seitlich. Aber die Tasten waren alle unterschiedlich, uneben in alle Richtungen. Beim Drücken der Tasten hört man die Federn knirschen. Der Anschlag war nicht linear, sprich, bei sanftem Anschlag ist es zu leise. Zwischen mittelstarken Anschlag und vollem Tastendruck ist wenig Unterschied bemerkbar.Die vielen Regler und Pads haben mich veranlaßt diesen Kontroller, im Vergleich mit ähnlichen Produkten, zu nehmen. Aber praktisch konnte ich sie nicht sinnvoll einsetzen. Die Regler lassen sich auch mit der Maus bedienen. Für die Pads konnte ich in den zwei Wochen Gebrauch keinen wirklichen Nutzen finden.Der Gesamteindruck: Qualitativ enttäuschend. Vielleicht habe ich ein Montagsmodell erwischt. Aber mit all den aufgelisteten Mängeln werde ich es zurückschicken, und nicht austauschen.

    A Great Controller With A Few Snags

    I’d gone through an Alesis V25 but returned it due to its size and the drum pads double hitting, and I thought this might be the answer. There’s a lot to love about the Arturia: portable, best-in-class mini keys, lots of rotary encoders (and no hard stops, which is great for multi-instrument control), and an old school design that looked great on my desk.The drum pads, however, left a lot to be desired. They require a lot of force to trigger and, much like the Alesis, they double hit frequently, rendering them pretty much useless. I researched and found its not an uncommon problem, and sadly one that Arturia routinely passes off as a cable and/or firmware issue. I returned the Arturia and bought a Launchkey Mini and while I prefer the feel and look of the Arturia, the drum pads were a must for me. Buy at your own risk (or if drum pads don’t matter to you).

    The Keyboard looks and feels great. The analog lab 4 software that comes with it is so fun to play around with all the sounds.My issue is with the drum pads; they are too hard and are very stiff and inconsistent when playing them. Also, the Ableton Live Lite that is suppose to come with this keyboard did not have a verification Serial # so I can’t save anything that I record in the DAW…. so then whats the point of having it? Overall, 4/5.

    Not for my purpose… but maybe just for you!

    I purchased the Minilab because I wanted a ‘sketchpad’ for ideas on the go, something with some controllers etc but also a decent keyboard. Having received the Minilab and had a little play, I decided that it’s not what I want, for the following two reasons:- The 25 keys aren’t enough – I know it’s got to be portable, but I felt I needed more keys- The depth and weight of the device make it less portableHowever, I acknowledge that this is a decent piece of kit – Arturia are well-trusted, and I have their Keylab 61 Essential, which is a great keyboard. Their synths are also great, and the MiniLab integrates seamlessly.On that note, I find it frustrating that the hardware is often tied-up with the software. With the MiniLab, you can MIDI configure the knobs etc to a certain extent. With my current mini-key device, the Komplete Kontrol M32, it’s even worse (but it has 32 keys!) – Native Instruments are the Apple of the MIDI world.So, if you want a completely free-of-proprietary device, then maybe you’re best off with the equivalent keyboards from Alesis, Nektar, Akai, M-Audio etc (I read reviews of these but rejected either because of keys or portability). But I can’t put down the MiniLab, especially as the keys and build are quality, and it comes with the excellent Analog Lab synth presets.So, make your choice, and I hope that this review is useful!

    Value for the money, functionality, free software!

    Cheapest one I’ve managed to get. I’m more than satisfied with. Works with Android phone and zenbeats app. I’ve used as a controller for the phone apps and it worked fine. Phone battery lasted for more than a 2,5 hours. Brilliant software included but it is quite complicated to install all software and plugins from the package and also it takes ages to fully install it. Little but important hint : Make sure you will choose exactly the same destination folders for plugins and software installed via Lab software center or otherwise it will cause massive problems and you might get mental 😉. Quality used materials for quite low price to pay. Keys feel surprisingly nice but a little bit too small and you have to be very careful which key you want to hit. In my opinion it’s a little bit small for both hands. Love the amount of knobs and variety of assigning them. Pads feel quite sensitive and responsive. In general I love it because of the price, functionality, what you get with it. Quality and satisfaction in a entry level controller (btw it’s my first controller in the beginning of discovering home music production).

    Good keys and potis, but bad drum pads.

    I bought an Arturia Mini Lab MK2 and an Akai MPK Mini MK2 for comparison.The Arturia Mini Lab knobs and keys are awesome, also it has 16 knobs and they are digital (endless rotation), but the drum pads are really bad. It’s also bigger and heavier than the Akai MPK Mini.If you want this thing for the knobs and keys, go for the Arturia, if you want low weight and good drum pads, go for the Akai. I bought it for the keys and the additional knobs to control parameters, so I went with the Arturia Mini Lab.

I have had it for only a few minutes and it connected automatically with no hassle (I have had connectivity issues with other makes and models) and knobs are evened mapped. Keys feel a bit cheap but that is expected for most keyboard based tools. The materials and weight feel great and I haven’t even tried with ableton yet. Plus it’s adorable.

    Everything is fine except pads

    Nice design and build quality, I love the keys and touch sensors but pads are not so good – very low sensitivity and no way to change it in midi control center. In fact the pads are just buttons with leds, because it is almost impossible to use them for finger drumming.

    OK

    I love the touch sensitivity of this keyboard.

    I’m still not totally familiar with all the controls, but what I have used is excellent. The software which is included is particularly nice, especially the Analog Lab 4 software. Although, it wasn’t easy to figure out how to download it because the links weren’t prominent on the web page for the downloads. Arturia should make the download links obvious on the front page where the product description is located.

    Growing up in the 80s

    Having started on the Korg 25 key and using demo’s I felt I was ready to take the next step up. Arturia is popular for vintage Synth enthusiasts. Arturia minilab mk 2 looked good, 25 keys, pads and finger sliders to make reverb etc. I had problems down loading Analog lab lite but customer service helped me by giving me another link. Ive been checking out YouTube seeing how they loop music. I’ll get back to you on if I can do it myself.Well I tried Ableton but couldn’t get the hang of it I use Magix for my loops and recordings. But don’t let that deter you, you might be Ableton work it out! 😂 Bad joke!The touch sensitivity strips were ok, but I felt I couldn’t control them as much as the Korg joystick appragator.The keys are a good size but was wary when touching the keys didn’t respond as quickly as the Korg, it’s with in milliseconds but you can tell.All in all great Software, nice sturdy controller but I’d rather have pitch wheels than strips, I’ll be going back to the Korg Microkey 25.

    Best option

    The best mini keyboard option. But it’s not perfect.Sometimes the keys don’t feel great- hard to describe, they don’t feel mushy but it feels like there’s something light moving underneath them when you press them? They don’t always feel like that though.Pads are not up to par with AKAI’s, and are kinda tiny.Touch controls work better than you would think.Ridiculous amount of knobs

    An für sich ein schönes Gerät,

    auch die Software, die zum Download (nach nicht ganz unproblematischer Aktivierung des Geräts) auf der Homepage bereit liegt ist gelungen. Die Bedienung und Programmierung funktionieren…ABER – wer Reason als DAW nutzt sollte sich lieber etwas anderes besorgen, denn die Endlosregler sind sehr ungenau und reagieren oft nicht richtig. Wie das in anderen DAWs funktioniert kann ich nicht sagen, habe aber gelesen, dass das wohl hauptsächlich bei reason ein anscheinend unlösbares Problem darstellt. Da aber die Endlosregler ein wichtiger Aspekt des Gerätes sind muss ich dafür Punkte abziehen, genauso dafür dass die Aktivierung des Minilab auch erst nach e-mail Verkehr mit dem Technischen support funktionierte…Für mich leider ein Fehlkauf und wird wohl wieder verkauft werden.

    Perfect for a beginner like me!

    As someone who loves the sounds of synthesizers, I had no idea that there have been affordable software-based synths out there for years now. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money because I didn’t know if this would hold my interest enough. This is the right piece of equipment at the right price point. The construction of the unit is superb, it isn’t all plastic, part of the case is metal which gives it a good heft, it really feels solid. The keys feel great as well, especially for a unit this inexpensive. I had no problems installing any of the bundled software and had it all up and running in short order. It turns out that there are literally hundreds of free virtual instruments available out there (as well as effects, samples, host software) that you can download and use with this controller. If there are two caveats (especially for a non-trained player such as myself), it would be that 25 keys really aren’t enough to play stuff that requires both hands, and that these are “mini keys” rather than full size ones, which I find are a bit more forgiving for my adult hands. I wound up selling mine after a few months to upgrade to an Arturia controller with 49 full-size keys, but enjoyed every minute with the MiniLab25 mkII. Keep in mind that the included Ableton Lite host software (sometimes referred to as a “DAW”, or digital audio workstation) only allows you to create with a maximum of eight tracks. Even though Ableton is the industry standard DAW, a more capable version will run you around $300. You can get some great DAWs for free, or for far less than what Ableton charges. Unless you eventually plan on upgrading to a better version of Ableton, I’d recommend getting a less expensive DAW and learning on that one rather than learning Ableton Lite and eventually switching to a different DAW and learning that one from scratch. I personally recommend Mixcraft 9 Pro, which comes with many outstanding bundled synths and effects (including Melodyne) and is a killer DAW in its’ own right.

    Un controlador MIDI compacto y muy útil

    Yo soy un estudiante audidacta de producción musical. Buscaba un controlador MIDI y tengo algunos productos de Arturia, asi que estuve valoranfo comprar el Arturia KeyLab Mk2 de 61 teclas en primer lugar porque toco el piano y pensaba que necesitaba al menos esas octavas. Tengo otro teclado completo con contrapeso de 88 teclas y salida MIDI y en el ultimo momento opté por lo contrario: un teclado pequeño. La verdad es que estoy muy contento porque si ya tienes un teclado completo, la diferencia está en poder usar este otro en cualquier momento, llevarlo en una mochila facilmente… y desde ese punto de vista es todo un acierto.La calidad del teclado en si es sorprendente y yo vengo de un Yamaha con contrapeso y teclas de madera. Es muy aceptable. He tenido un iRig y el tacto del Arturia es mucho más sólido, pero es complicado usarlo para otra cosa que no sea componer por pasos, grabar acordes y algún arpegio. Para ser expresivo, si tocas el piano previamente, es necesario otro tipo de teclado.En resumen, creo que es una buena herramienta desde el punto de vista de la producción. Yo lo uso con Ableton Live y se integra perfectamente y es un instrumento que puedes tener siempre a mano, está bien construido y ocupa muy poco espacio. Te lo puedes llevar al sofá con el portatil y probar cosas mientras están viendo la tele. Para usar como teclado principal, yo me iría al keylab.

    Una maravilla si te gustan los sintetizadores clásicos y quieres gastarte poco dinero.

    PROS:- ¡Por 100€ puedes sacar en el PC de casa CIENTOS de sonidos de sintetizadores clásicos, órganos, pianos… una verdadera pasada!- Trae muchísimos “presets” de sonidos integrados en el software “Arturia Lab Lite” (unos 500), te puedes tirar un montón de horas probando todos; si quieres muchos más (hasta 6.500), puedes comprar el pack completo en la página de Arturia, ahora mismo por unos 70€, pero para empezar, los que trae son más que suficientes para pasarlo en grande.- También puedes modificar los “presets” mediante los botones giratorios que tiene, se integran con el software y te dejan cambiar los parámetros como ataque, delay, etc.- La parte de abajo es una placa metálica, lo que le da cierto peso y estabilidad, no da sensación de cutrez como otros similares.CONTRAS:- Las teclas son más pequeñas que en un piano normal, pero se tocan bien; si buscas un teclado completo este no es tu producto. Pero para “juguetear” en casa durante horas, y hasta para hacer música “a cierto nivel” puede valer perfectamente.- No trae salida ni entrada MIDI. Se conecta directamente al ordenador por USB, del cual también se alimenta (no es necesario conectarlo a la corriente mediante un alimentador).En resumen: No vas a encontrar un pack “hardware/software” de teclado controlador mejor por menos dinero, recomendado.

    Third update! it got worse(will update again if I have to.)

    at first ableton didnt register over half the keys of the keyboard ( spoiler it still doesn’t!) when you do manage to be able to record with ableton, for some reason theres always 1 note that wont working, causing you have to re record OVER AND OVER some of my keys are becoming less stiff than the others, I fear they might break apart if I actually used this thing often, and on top of that crap NOW NONE OF THE KNOBS WORK, SOMETIMES WHEN YOU HIT A NOTE THE NOTE WILL KEEP RINGING OUT UNTIL YOU CHANGE WHAT PRESET YOUR USING SO MUCH SOMETIMES THE PADS DON’T WORK they designed this piece of junk so that you know you need a better one, and so i’m waiting till I have the money for a better one the keys are so cramped you can’t play fast solos up and down it because of the first and last note, theres limitations to what chords/ scales you can and cant play because of how small it is.

    Excellent!!! Best controller per dollar?

    I had some problems at first but Arturia got back with me and fixed all of them. One was an issue verifying my new Arturia account, and the other was the pitch bend slider had gone out. It was fixed by a simple hardware reset. Impressed!The keys have some very nice feel to them compared to anything else I tried in this category. The only thing better was the Native Instruments S25 which is over double the price and much bigger/bulkier. The knobs are solid/smooth with only slight variation between the force needed to turn them, and the pads are surprisingly good. Like, I didn’t even expect velocity sensitivity to be good on the pads (it is), and of course on top of that they’re full RGB. The feel is actually better than the cheap Akai’s!! Wow. The sliders also deserve mention. I was skeptical if they would work as well as a mod wheel, and if you’re like awesome with a mod-wheel they might not. But for most people this is a fantastic compromise – it’s one less mechanical thing to go wrong, and it makes the unit a much more compact package. I quickly used all of the controls while messing with Analog Lab, which is a nice piece of included software.Overall, the MiniLab mkII gives you a really high density of controls without any of them being too small or useless, or even a lesser quality. Build quality seems rock solid beyond my wildest expectations at this price. I tried to flex the device on the corners and instead the table it’s on is flexing. The form factor is very nice and the size and weight are a good compromise – it’s not “light”, it is a bit hefty, but it’s not heavy, just solid. It’s not “small” but it could fit in a backpack and it’s “small enough” to not make major sacrifices on ease of use. The size is approximately that of a large textbook.I highly recommend this!! Arturia support wasn’t as bad as some have claimed, and the MiniLab feels way better than anything in this price point, or for that matter, any price point (for what it is). Meanwhile you get that fly wood grain on the side. What more could you want??Cons- the one downside is that Arturia seems to have partnered with Ableton and might not have nearly as good integration in other DAW’s. In Bitwig people are slowly making an extension for it. That said it includes a $25 copy of Ableton as well.

    Great for those starting out

    I deliberated between this and the Akai equivalent but eventually plumped for this one, primarily because of the quality of the keys, which are excellent. This really comes alive with the Analag Lab software bundled as part of the package. I haven’t really got used to using the pads yet, but tweaking the dials in Analaog Lab provides hours of fun and numerous sound tweaks. I quite like the touch pitch and modulation strips as well, although the modulation is probably easier to control. Would recommend if, like me, you are starting out on midi controllers.

    si eres un compositor que viaja mucho es bueno para llevarlo a todas partes, pero te limita por las pocas octavas que tiene, es bueno para hacer ideas cuando estes fuera, o para jugar y hacer videos de rolítas de 1 min. en instagram. Cuando me llegó no llegó emplasticado, eso me sacó de onda, pero si sirvió y hace la tarea, si piensas hacer una composición detallada o hacer acordes con notas abiertas ahí es donde esta el problema.

    Great idea ruined by terrible Rotary Encoders

    Just had to return this. In theory was exactly what I wanted. Taking it out of the box the unit as a whole is awesome, feels well built etc but then I started using it….and those rotary encoders (the knobs). Any rotation medium to slow and the values start jumping arround, sometimes as much as 10%. So bad it is unuseable. You can completely forget about doing a slow filter sweep. Quick search on the internet (and indeed in some of the negative comments here on Amazon) and I am clearly not the only one. The terrible thing about this is apparently Arturia have known about this for at least the last two years, and not just in this device. Needless to say I wont be touching any of their hardware again. Aside from the knobs, I also foud the pads to require too firm a hit to register anything, and sometimes they even played a sound twice from a single hit so beware. Its really wierd, as the unit as a whole feels like they really tried hard to deisgn it well and really put effort into building a good quality product but then put some of the cheapest comeonets in it they could find. What a shameUPDATE 26/07/2020Arturia have just released Firmware update 1.1 “We’ve adjusted MiniLab MkII’s knobs to be more accurate and sensitive to subtle tweaks “. This may have resolved the knobs issue.

    What it is and what it isn’t.

    Be aware that this is a midi-controller and not a keyboard with presets loaded into it. This means you have to connect it to a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and sync with the sounds and controls on the DAW. I bought this to replace my i- Rig mini keys and to be honest, my i-Rig does the job pretty well and was a lot cheaper. The advantage with the Mini-lab is that you can have full control of all your sliders and virtual knobs and this makes recording so much more convenient than using the computer or laptop keyboard. The software it comes with is really good – Analog Lab 4, which has lots of synths, pianos and organs on it. However, there is nothing in the package to rival my usual sounds on Logic Pro X, which is the DAW I use. It also comes with Ableton Lite. I don’t know if I’ve done something wrong when I registered for the license but it won’t allow me to save any recordings, which makes it pretty useless. Like I said, I could be doing something wrong, but last time I tried, it wouldn’t let me save. No matter, I use Logic Pro X anyway but if you don’t have this or something similar, you might find Ableton lite annoying. I also don’t like the interface on Ableton – it looks like one of those DAWs that you got in the late 90s/early 2000s. Just kind of tacky and dated looking. I know I’m sounding negative. I do like the Arturia Mini-Lab mk 2 but I am just a little bit underwhelmed by it, having seen so many good reviews. One thing I will say is that the keys are nice and firm and springy and the unit itself is very well made and robust.

    OK midi controller

    This is an okay midi controller.It looks nice and the pitch-bend and modulation strips are an interesting idea. It’s cool to be able to jump to values rather than bending to them.The small keys are fairly flimsy feeling and click against the bottom plastic when played.The pads aren’t very responsive and you have to hit them quite hard to trigger them. I like the colours though.The knobs are nice and feel very smooth when turned. They do occasionally suddenly jump values which can be annoying.If I was buying again I’d probably get an Akai MPC Mini instead. My brother owns one, it’s smaller and lighter than the Arturia, and the pads are much more responsive on the Akai.For a cheap midi controller it’s fine.

    Very Nice Key’s!!!

    Great keyboard for the price, the key’s feel brilliant and the knob’s are very sturdy the motion feel’s like a premium product, not to mention the software bundle is also great value for money.Would definitely recommend, in comparison to other’s at this price range i would say it’s the most professional feeling, and the build quality is excellent, it feel’s as if it should be priced higher (but don’t let them know that).

    Buon prodotto

    Il midi controller e’ arrivato prima dei tempi stabiliti e tutto in ordine, scrivo per chi vuole acquistarlo che l’installazione e’ veloce e intuitiva,con il software di arturia potete gia’ suonare mentre la produzione musicale invece molto meno ed e’ consigliata per utenti esperti (serve un daw e un po’ di esperienza) nota negativa del software arturia mini lab e’ che non ha una batteria, i pad sono ok ma nulla di eccelso, i tasti della keyboard invece sono buoni.

    Amazing MIDI Keyboard

    The Mini Lab MKII is a great product for anyone just starting out in music production to producers with years of experience. I have been using the Mini Lab MKII for about a month now and it is amazing. The key size is slightly larger than other MIDI keyboards however they are not full size. I love the feature where you can change the pad colour to whatever you would like, it just gives the keyboard a personal touch when using it. However, the only trouble I had with this MIDI keyboard is with the set up. I use Logic Pro X when producing, which is not the main program that this keyboard is made for. This caused a little difficulty with the set up but nothing major. Overall, the build quality on this MIDI keyboard is at the top for how much you are paying, the full metal back gives a nice weight to the keyboard which helps to keep it in one place. This is an amazing deal for an amazing product if you are looking for a MIDI keyboard that is for mainly stationary use with some portability aspects. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Excellent midi keyboard

    Not a tiny toy midi keyboard, feels like almost an instrument. The arrangement of the pads is mehhh. If you really plan to take it with you in a backpack on a regular basis not the best option. Grand Piano, Ableton Live Lite and Arturia Lab Lite that comes with are amazing and enough for a beginner DAW user. Arturia customer service is very helpful and responsive. Overall it is a great value for money.

    Quality Build, Durable

    The Mini Lab MkII has a quality build. The keys, the knobs and pads are all well done. It’s not light weight but, is very durable. I would carry the extra weight because it’s build quality and apparent durability.The limitless knobs a are perfect design choice. Moving from one instrument to another doesn’t require that the knobs physically reset to the previous instrument. You just pick up where you were.Arturia provided a firmware patch which fixed the blinking octave lights. They did not blink with your DAW (like a metronome) so it was distracting. The patch fixed that. The lights glow solid now, no blinking.The pads were double and triple firing when playing rapid patterns. The patch appears to have fixed that issue too.The modulator and bend pads are preferable to me They are much more flexible than the standard wheels. I can put a finger down in a specific spot without sliding there. That opens up interesting options of playability the wheels don’t provided. And, of course you can slide your finger and you have the standard wheel action.It comes with Analog Lab 4, a collection of classic keyboards, including my favorite the Hammond B-3. The MkII is worth the money for that collection alone.It interfaces with your DAW so you can control parameters right from the the keyboard. I have a full 88 key keyboard but, I use the MkII more now.5 stars for this little beauty.

    4 stelle perché ogni tanto, quando la collego al pc, il touchpad del pitch non funziona, devo quindi scollegata e ricollegarla. Inoltre I tasti non sono super ricettivi e fanno molto rumore. Spero che questi difetti che ho incontrato non siano la qualità standard dei prodotti Arturia. Se potessi tornare indietro opterei per un’altra tastiera, per esempio l’M32 della Native Instruments

    Best mini keys, lackluster knobs, and bad drum pads (also, software hassle)

    First, the mini keys are the best I’ve used. I think the main reason for this is the key travel distance. These keys go about twice as deep as any mini keys I’ve used. It is nowhere near a real piano key, but it is a lot more satisfying than other mini keys.On to the knobs. First things first: the knobs do not have a uniform resistance. That is to say that some feel looser than others (rotate more easily) which makes using them a little frustrating. You definitely have to watch the software parameter you are controlling and rotate the knobs very precisely. This is exacerbated by the sometimes jumpy knob controls. I know that the jumpiness is not an insurmountable issue as I also use a Midifighter Twister which has very good, smooth knobs.Lastly, the Drum Pads are not very good. They require a lot of force to actuate. It’s not impossible, but good luck making any use of the velocity sensitivity. My unit exhibits an issue where the drum pads will sometimes trigger twice with one press. It was initially very bad, but I updated the firmware and it mostly sorted itself out. I say mostly because it still happens, but about 50-25% as often. (I ran into one issue when recording midi from the keys that seems like a similar double-note problem, but it only happened once).Software!It comes with a bunch of synths, an Ableton Live Lite key, and a grand piano. I found it bothersome that the Arturia synths required me to install a separate “Arturia Software Center” in order to download them. I also had to download the “Midi Control Center” in order to update the Firmware. So know, for this one device, I have 2 otherwise-useless programs installed just to use the included synths properly.

    Amazing built. I’m glad I traded my other midi for this one. You can adjust the velocity. The keyboard is not too stiff which is how I like it and the drum pads are good.

    Very nice

    I’ll start off to say that I am not a musician, but I loved hacking around with synths in my younger years. and I just wanted to get myself a little something inexpensive, and a midi controller simply made the most sense for it’s versatility and not being limited to any hardware settings. That being said, even for $100-$150 I don’t like junk and appreciate good workmanship.I initially had a pool of about a dozen choices which got whittled down fairly quickly to 3 contenders (Nektar Impact LX25+, Akai Professional MPK Mini MKII and this one). I literally had to write each of them on pieces of paper and draw one, so I can’t say this Arturia MiniLab MKII is any better than those ones, but I’m hoping for at least longevity it is LOLThis controller has keys and pads with a terrific feel, excellent velocity settings and they all interact beautifully with the included software, in synch. The knobs are limitless (2 are push-down for what I haven’t checked out yet) so there isn’t any feel of when the limit has been reached, but since it’s a controller that works with various programs, it’s a benefit with this unit so it will work with pretty near any of them. The pitch and modulation pads are a bit weird for me, but having used the wheels so many moons ago it’s a cinch for me to get used to, though, and they’re very responsive. The other buttons I haven’t ventured into figuring out as yet, but will once I have time to read the various manuals for the included software. I do really like how the relevant octave button blinks once or twice to indicate which one (upper/lower) you’re currently playing in.One caveat if you do get this awesome bang-for-the-buck is have a few hours set aside to register and subsequently download the promised software. After you’ve registered your unit and installed their ASC to getAnalog Lab Lite and the Midi mapper, they provide you with the registration numbers to Ableton Live 10 Lite and UVI Grand Piano and links to download and install those sort of “third party”.Now down to learning some new software, 5 stars!

    Good but Flawed.

    This is a mostly decent second keyboard for a laptop-based musician because it’s portable, and it also doesn’t take up too much room on a desk. It does have one annoying flaw (see later).The unit comes with configuration files for Analog Lab and Ableton. This make it instantly useful with those two pieces of (supplied) software. People have made helpful midi maps for it for Reaper, check out the Reaper forum in the MIDI section. If you use a different DAW you may need to configure it yourself, as it does not have any other configuration files, nor does it support the standard MCU DAW control protocol. (Of course the keys work for playing notes without requiring any configuration).Physical AppearanceThis unit is beautifully finished, and looks very good on a desktop with its illuminated pads. It has a metal base, which does make it heavier than you would expect. It’s slightly wider than a 14 inch laptop, and it fits in my (large) laptop bag on top of the laptop. It would fit in a standard laptop bag by itself.The KeysThe keys are spaced at a pitch of 2.0cm, as opposed to the 2.4cm of a full sized keyboard. They are only 9 cm deep. There are only 25 of them. If you accept these limitations, they are nice keys with a good feel. The velocity sensitivity seems about right, and of course there are octave up and down buttons to reach any note. This is a good keyboard for one handed playing of synths and samplers. If you want to play a piano with both hands, you may wish to look for a full sized keyboard with 61 or 88 keys.Sustain PedalThere is a socket for a standard sustain pedal, which is not supplied. This works as expected, and is much better than having a sustain button on the keyboard.The Pitch and Mod Touch StripsThese work very well, and seem just as useful as the wheels that are found on larger keyboards.The PadsThe pads are easily configurable, and work well as controls for the software. For playing drums, they require a firm hit, and I found it easier to use the keys.Rotary Encoders.I discovered that there has been a problem with the encoders on this unit for a few years. There are complaints all over the internet. The company has recently released a new version of firmware (1.1.2) that is said to address the problems.Most of the time, the encoders now work well. However, there are circumstances where they are so sensitive that it is impossible to accurately select a value. Surprisingly, this applies to both Analog Lab, where it is hard to select a preset, and Ableton, where it is hard to select a row. I suspect that the controller scripts in these applications require further work.I would not choose this controller if my main purpose was to perform live with it using Ableton, due to the difficulty in selecting the required row, and consequent risk of playing the wrong loop.Analog Lab 4 LiteAnalog Lab Lite feels almost like a demo version of Analog Lab. It costs another $69 plus VAT (so about £65) to upgrade to the full version.Ableton Live LiteAbleton Live is excellent for live performance of loop-based music. The limitations of this lite version are not too severe. If you only want to create non-loop-based music, there are better alternatives. If you don’t already have a license, this is one way to obtain one.UVI Grand Piano Model DI’m not sure why this full Steinway grand piano application is included with this keyboard. It is not possible to play a piano properly with only 25 keys. I didn’t bother to load it as I don’t need it.AlternativesMost small keyboards do not have endless encoders. The few that do include the Worlde Tuna Mini and the Subzero Commandkey 25. I chose the Arturia Minilab because it comes from a well known supplier, and because it includes Analog Lab Lite software.The Arturia Keylab 49 comes with the full Analog Lab collection for not much more money than the Minilab plus the upgrade price, if you have room for it.Some M Audio keyboards come with support for multiple DAWs built in.The Behringer X Touch Mini is not a keyboard but it includes a set of endless rotary encoders that “may” work better than the Arturia ones, and it could be combined with any other keyboard, including a full sized one. It does support the MCU protocol for various DAWs.There are many inexpensive Ableton controllers, if that is what you need.ConclusionsIf you can live with the occasionally dodgy control knobs, this is in other respects a nice small form-factor keyboard. If it supports the software that you want to use, it could be a decent buy.

    Tastiera sembra pesata.

    Dopo anni di mostri a 88 tasti questa è la mia prima “mini” e non posso fare confronti con altre simili. Piacevole sorpresa, la tastiera risponde molto bene e si ha l’impressione di suonare con una pesata. Buona costruzione e gradita illuminazione dei pad in funzione. Per chi, come me, non intende assolutamente esporre la propria workstation ai pericoli di una connessione internet, risulta leggermente laborioso scaricare ed installare i programmi ed i suoni forniti dalla casa. In compenso con questa macchinetta si aprono confini sterminati di interventi anche in tempo reale. Comprata da poco (e ricevuta perfettamente nei tempi), ho ancora dei dubbi sul come integrare Analog Lab IV e V con Ableton, graditi i consigli di ci c’è già riuscito. Consiglio l’acquisto.

    This thing sucks. It’s built and billed as this durable product, and it certainly has the weight for that, but 4 of the knobs broke off after about a few months of use. A few months! I wasn’t even being rough with the thing. All of the keys are sticky now (despite me being completely clean with the device), and the drumpads are barely responsive so I have to practically slam my fingers on them to produce any results.

    Great Hardware, Fraudulent Software

    This is a very nice controller. It’s laid out well, the build quality is terrific, the feel the keys is great and it’s a great value. The “included software” is a scam, however. To “unlock” the virtual instruments, you have to enter a serial number and an unlock code. However, the serial number of the controller doesn’t work and they don’t provide you with an unlock code. You also have to go through a cumbersome process to create an account for each piece or software, only to discover at the end of the process that you don’t have the unlock code. Buy this for the hardware. The software is a fraud perpetuated on the public.

    LO AMMETTO…L’ESTETICA MI HA CONDIZIONATO

    Parto dicendo che la tastiera è stupenda. Esteticamente le Arturia sono davvero di un altro pianeta. Per questo il mio voto è parecchio influenzato dalla parte estetica. Già, perché parlando esclusivamente della parte musicale, l’ho trovata deludente. Non tanto per quanto riguarda la qualità dei tasti, con un buon touch and feel nonostantee le dimensioni ridotte. Piuttosto in riferimento alla parte di gestione. Il software Arturia è ottimo ma non ha una perfetta interazione con tutte le Daw. Io ad esempio l’ho utilizzata con GarageBand e con questo programma di produzione la compatibilità dei pad e delle manopole è molto scarsa. Non è possibile configurarla. Diverso è il discorso se si utilizza ad esempio Ableton. Ad ogni modo per chi fa produzione è un ottimo strumento per improvvisare beats in live (sempre utilizzando la Daw giusta) o come keyboard complementare ad altre tastiere che già si posseggono. Io personalmente l’ho resa perché non l’ho trovata idonea alle mie esigenze ma considerando il prezzo e la concorrenza per queste dimensioni, sento di consigliarla.

    The reason I’m giving this controller a 4 star review is based on the very annoying fact that despite it comes with an Ableton Live license, there is no template developed for this controller within the DAW which means you can’t use it properly (according to Arturia the template will be released with the new Ableton update in April 2017).As for the build and features of the controller I found it pretty good, the keys feel great, the knobs and the pads. It feels a little heavy for a portable controller.

    Brilliant!

    Total novice using midi controllers/keyboards but I found the setup straightforward and painless. Simple enough for beginners right out the box but has almost limitless functionality for experienced users. Extremely well made, solid and knobs,pads and keys all have beautiful feel and action/sensitivity. Mini keys are ideal size for me to hack out chords/notes with my sausage fingers, I’m a guitarist so the size might not be to proper pianist/keyboard players taste. Bundled software is good but the grand piano package is a nightmare to install and really isnt worth the effort as it dosent sound any better than the Analoguelab ones. On that front kinda missed the boat as you only get the lite version which you could upgrade to full for about £30 with the previous model. The full package of presets will set you back the same as the controller about £100 with the discount if you tire of the 500 included. However you can purchase themed packs which you can audition for various prices upwards of £7. Integrated seamlessly with my DAW, studio one artist, but also comes with Abelton lite which I’ve not looked at yet. Would recommend to anyone in the market for such a device.

    Ottima

    Ottima tastierina dal punto di vista hardware, ottimo il software a supporto. Ho acquistato anche analog lab in offerta. L’unica delusione, avendo letto da qualche parte che fosse in offerta anche la V collection a buon prezzo, è stata che invece non è alcuna offerta per tale software. Comunque, il rapporto qualità/prezzo è veramente alto.

    The overall build quality is great, for the price.

    I really like the build quality. The keys are slightly narrow, but it might just be due to me having fingers like a tree frog. For a novice, i find it easier than I imagined I would.

    Good piece of kit but took me a while to figure out the software

    At first software to edit profiles was very buggy and annoying but I think that’s fixed now, has very good customisation and the keys are relatively good quality. Knobs 1 and 9 behave a little strangely though and I only use them as switchesSomething I only figured out after months of use is that you can switch profiles by holding shift and touching the pad that corresponds with the profile. All this time I had been loading the customisation software and re-uploading my profile to the unit every time I booted my computer up. It’s a lot easier to use now that I know this.

    Great Device

    made my very first song on this and it was pretty sweet. comes with software that blows my mind how it can be a added bonus with the purchase. ableton live although the lite version is the industry leader in music production and the software that they built them selves which can be ported into ableton live is next level cool. if youre interested in buying this for a hobby like i did or even major production, this is the product you are looking for. many features that cant be covered and is a very SOLID piece of equipment.

    NO SAVE-NO EXPORT. Upgrade $70.00

    I sent it back. The free software doesn’t let you save or export work. Just finding the software on the site was a nightmare. Then to download you must navigate to other websites. The other sites request a password that isn’t given and so I spent additional time finding that I didn’t need it. Even though it kept saying – incorrect password. When I finally had everything installed … and every program takes forever to install, and longer to uninstall. To upgrade the software they are asking $70.00. Are you kidding?So I’m going to send it back. I’m going to Guitar Center and get what I need.

    Third update! it got worse(will update again if I have to.)

    at first ableton didnt register over half the keys of the keyboard ( spoiler it still doesn’t!) when you do manage to be able to record with ableton, for some reason theres always 1 note that wont working, causing you have to re record OVER AND OVER some of my keys are becoming less stiff than the others, I fear they might break apart if I actually used this thing often, and on top of that crap NOW NONE OF THE KNOBS WORK, SOMETIMES WHEN YOU HIT A NOTE THE NOTE WILL KEEP RINGING OUT UNTIL YOU CHANGE WHAT PRESET YOUR USING SO MUCH SOMETIMES THE PADS DON’T WORK they designed this piece of junk so that you know you need a better one, and so i’m waiting till I have the money for a better one the keys are so cramped you can’t play fast solos up and down it because of the first and last note, theres limitations to what chords/ scales you can and cant play because of how small it is.

    Great

    This will bring many hours of fun and experimentation. I love playing the piano but this brings so many variations to my playing and also a great tool to create unique material for soundscapes backing onto my colourful videos … so really pleased I bought the machine along with the great combo of software included. Only moan would be that you can’t edit the source synths in this version of the software but perhaps I may upgrade (also they include a leaflet for the upgrade which refers to version 2 and they are now on version 4). Did download the additional synths / presets and they are all excellent and weird in places which is great (worth getting those as well as the ones in the original software) and in future, I will perhaps buy some of the additional material to add to the device. Totally recommended

    The Perfect Little Midi Controller

    Granted, I’m still learning how it works, but this thing is amazing. I run this on Logic Pro X on a 13″ 2018 MacBook Pro with through a USB-C hub, and it’s flawless. The ability to adjust parameters in Analog Lab (which is included with the keyboard, bonus) with the knobs is a neat feature.

    WELCOME TO THE NIGHTMARE!!!

    Okay physically the item, the controller actually is built very solid and appears to be a top-notch quality unit . however the company has designed a nightmare registration and security process that is ridiculous you got serial numbers unlock codes activation files plus drivers to try and deal with to get the unit to work it is really ridiculous in my opinion…. it 100% ruins this product. I would not order this product nor any other from this company as they have gone overboard in trying to capture your email information in order to Market more products to you in the future. I understand business is business but as a musician I don’t want to deal with that kind of horse poop! PLUS, once you do get the product registered?? You can’t sell it to anyone else. As your name is locked into the unit. And it will not work for anyone else. I buy and sell audio equipment all the time. I see this new type of security system as being a nightmare!!It took 2 hours of trying, downloading, registering, re-registering, entering in numbers and codes… FORGET IT!!I WILL NEVER ORDER ANOTHER PRODUCT FROM ARTURIA!!THEY RUINED THEIR PRODUCT WITH YHIS REGISTRATION PROCESS!!Jim

    Muy buen producto a excelente precio.

    Robusto, los botones y las teclas se sienten bastante bien y con buen peso considerando el tamaño del teclado, y además trae buenos y bastantes sonidos de sintetizadores. Sin embargo no le doy 5 estrellas ya que no hay mapeo oficial para su uso en Logic X, lo cual es me parece extraño y molesto porque sí hay para la versión anterior de MiniLab, y aunque es posible hacerlo, eso toma bastante tiempo y no es muy práctico.

    I really hate to leave negative feedback here

    I really hate to leave negative feedback here, but maybe it will help somebody else.2 stars…really?Uh huh. As a midi controller this does exactly what it should which is play notes and offer other controls that can be mapped.So does almost every other midi controller and controllers are a dime a dozen.What should set this apart is it’s ability to integrate with DAW software Reason and Bitwig, but if fails to deliver.It seems that Arturia, the fine manufacturer of this product fell asleep after the MK1 version and failed to deliver an updated controller script.If you open up the current versions of Reason or Bitwig, you will see options for the Mini Lab controller.However this is for the outdated MK1 version.This is the MK2 version, so it fails to deliver.Trying to use this product in up to date DAW software leads to nothing but frustration.(I’m using Bitwig and Reason, maybe other DAW software took it on their own to carry the slack for Arturia and you’ll be in luck.This is not the fault of the DAW manufacturers, but is the responsibility of Arturia.They are releasing this hardware after all.

    Another hit for Arturia

    Arturia saves my bacon again! I needed something to handle one-shots and other special effects and mini-leads with my Korg Kronos 2. I initially bought a Korg NanoPad 2 for the task, but it’s actually too-tightly integrated with the Kronos, and that caused some unpredictable results when playing in a situation where the master tuning is changed, causing all my split points and pad assignments to be off.Enter the MiniLab. It’s built like a brute, so it’s going to hold up to live gigging very well, and the feature set is almost unbeatable for the price. The setup application allows precise editing of the MIDI data being sent, and results are quite predictable. One thing you’ll need to be aware of, though, is that this product is USB bus powered ONLY, so make sure the device you want to use it with provides adequate power.

    NOT RECOMMENDED PRODUCT – Arturia MiniLab is one of the worst MIDI controllers I ever had

    I own electronic devises since 1994, I have chosen this because of the small size cause I need a controller for traveling, but I must say this is one of the worst MIDI controllers I ever had, the knobs work REALLY BAD, when you move them slowly values jump randomly, I contacted the technical support but they mentioned it is an already known issue (with no solution so far), and they suggested me to buy a more expensive devise if “I want professional results” (a very unfortunate answer). I DO NOT recommend this device at all.

    Like with caveats

    I’m an Arturia guy. I also have a MicroBrute, Keystep, Pigments and their V Collection 7. I got this as a desktop module for Ableton, and it’s pretty seamless for that purpose, allowing a great amount of built-in automatic control once you connect by MIDI (painlessly). The knobs are endless and have the right amount of pushback to offer refinement. The pads are tight for nice control. My one issue is that I wanted to take this on vacation to practice some songs. It’s great for one-handed use on stage, for sure. But any sort of two-handed playing is about 5 keys too short of any but the most basic one-octave riffs on the right, and too short for a standard G-chord on the left. So I ended up taking my Keystep instead (also one key short on the second octave right, but overall much more useful). I’d say if I want to “play piano” I probably have to size up to a wider bed. But for quick riffs where you can manually adjust the octave range up/down as you loop, this is great, super tough, comes with great software, and has nice responsive (springy) velocity keys.

    Solido, funzionale, di ottimo materiale e molto solido. Consigliato per chi, come me, vuole approcciarsi alla produzione musicale. Tasti sensibilissimi ai diversi livelli di pressione, così come i pad. I knob permettono di controllare qualsiasi parametro e sono anche molto precisi. Consigliato per l’utilizzo con Ableton, che resta la daw maggiormente personalizzabile per questo controller. Infine è comodissimo da portare con sé anche in un semplice zaino. Insomma, rapporto qualità prezzo ottimo. Soddisfattissimo!

    I bought this for my wife who like to tinker with music production. It’s the perfect price point to get into it without sinking a fortune but it does enough that she’s currently not wanting for anything more. It came with a pretty large library of sounds and instruments. Definitely a good buy if you’re starting out.

    Perfect for a beginner like me!

    As someone who loves the sounds of synthesizers, I had no idea that there have been affordable software-based synths out there for years now. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money because I didn’t know if this would hold my interest enough. This is the right piece of equipment at the right price point. The construction of the unit is superb, it isn’t all plastic, part of the case is metal which gives it a good heft, it really feels solid. The keys feel great as well, especially for a unit this inexpensive. I had no problems installing any of the bundled software and had it all up and running in short order. It turns out that there are literally hundreds of free virtual instruments available out there (as well as effects, samples, host software) that you can download and use with this controller. If there are two caveats (especially for a non-trained player such as myself), it would be that 25 keys really aren’t enough to play stuff that requires both hands, and that these are “mini keys” rather than full size ones, which I find are a bit more forgiving for my adult hands. I wound up selling mine after a few months to upgrade to an Arturia controller with 49 full-size keys, but enjoyed every minute with the MiniLab25 mkII. Keep in mind that the included Ableton Lite host software (sometimes referred to as a “DAW”, or digital audio workstation) only allows you to create with a maximum of eight tracks. Even though Ableton is the industry standard DAW, a more capable version will run you around $300. You can get some great DAWs for free, or for far less than what Ableton charges. Unless you eventually plan on upgrading to a better version of Ableton, I’d recommend getting a less expensive DAW and learning on that one rather than learning Ableton Lite and eventually switching to a different DAW and learning that one from scratch. I personally recommend Mixcraft 9 Pro, which comes with many outstanding bundled synths and effects (including Melodyne) and is a killer DAW in its’ own right.

    Excellent quality and terrific price. Given all the included software, it’s a bargain. Excellent portable controller. Sometimes wished it was a little bigger but the trade-off in portability and price is worth it. The perfect integration with analog lab is great. Given the library of patches available it is an amazing value. For $80 you can upgrade the software to get 10x more patches but the hundreds you get with the lite version is more than enough to start with.

    I really like it

    I really like this controller. I’m brand new to midicontrollers and thought I knew what I was getting. Boy was I wrong…I’ve worked Audacity, pro tools, garage band, but never have I seen something as complicated as the software included….this is some top notch stuff! For real pros, and the average guy like me to fiddle around with some serious tools and try and grab a handle on it.Anyways, definitely not for beginners but if you have knowledge of recording software and have some musical abilities, then this is a great device.Also side note, I’ve been playing without authenticating my Ableton live lite account (yet) and my Arturia has been cutting in and out from time to time. I’m hoping this had to do with not authenticating and isn’t an actual defect. Because that would be disappointing, this machine is awesome

    Il prodotto di per sé è buono, ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo….ma non è riconosciuta da FL Studio, a patto di avere l’ultima versione (io non ci sono riuscito con la 12…se avete suggerimenti, vi ringrazio in anticipo). Nessun problema invece con Ableton. Un bel giocattolino insomma con cui fare molte cose.

    Excellent clavier maître

    C’est mon premier clavier maître. Excellente qualité de fabrication. Les pads sont un peu durs, mais les touches sont vraiment géniales. Le logiciel Arturia Analog Lab est tout bonnement incroyable : plein de belles sonorités, le tout réglable facilement. Je ne regrette pas mon achat !

    Solid 4 star product

    Overall, this controller does everything I need it to do as a hobbyist. If you’re looking for more than that, then you probably want to invest in a higher quality product. My major complainta with this model are that the drum pads feel stiff and cause some hits to not register and the knobs feel a little flimsy. The pads are also farther apart than on most midi controllers and make some patterns awkward or nearly impossible without moving sounds around in your software. In hindsight, I personally would have wanted to invest a little bit more money and get a higher quality model, but the value of this product at this price point makes it a solid purchase that’s great for amateur producers like myself.

    I recommed it. Amazing MIDI controller

    Love it. Very good quality of the keys, knob, pads, pitch and modulation. The material is amazing, very solid and the painting is nice. I recommend it to 100%. Compatible with FL Studio 20 ❤️

    I loved it!

    I wasn’t sure about buying it but I read very good reviews and they were all true. They product was in very good condition, on time. I have about 1 month with it and have had no issues.

    It’s OK

    Feels nice and meaty . My only gripe is 3 of the keys squeek like crazy when I use it. I’m hoping this goes away overtime . Also the software that comes with it is useless because I make music in FL studio and would rather use that than a lite version of the software it comes with .

    Ziemlich gut, bis auf…

    – Tasten: Fühlen sich gut an – Touch: Gut – Pads: Gut genug (könnten sensibler sein) – Software: Man muss sich sehr viel herunterladen, zu kompliziert, funktioniert teilweise nicht (permanentes Backlighting zB) – Regler: Funktionieren in Serato Studio nicht, was ich sehr schade finde, weil mir auf eine Frage gesagt wurde, dass es damit kompatibel seiWenn das permanente Backlighting funktionieren würde und die Regler in Serato Studio eine Funktion hätten, wäre es 10/10

    Pienamente soddisfatto!

    Ha dei suoni bellissimi con il suo software e si interfaccia molto bene con ableton. Nonostante le piccole dimensioni i tasti si suonano molto bene e la tastiera è molto bella anche esteticamente. Consiglio l’acquisto!

    Qualité/ prise en main difficile

    Ce n’est vraiment pas un jouet. Il faut vraiment être débrouillard et habile pour être en mesure de faire de la musique. Je pense que ce serait beaucoup plus clef en main.

    Très bon clavier à prix abordable.

    Il fonctionne avec la plupart de mes logiciels : Asio avec extensions Vst, Cubase Lite etc…

    So much better than the MPC Mini MK2!

    I originally bought the MPC Mini, but as soon as I got it and played the keyboard I was super bummed. Here I’d bought one of the most popular mini keyboards sold today and I discovered that the keys are just cheap pieces of plastic that flex every time you play them. The Arturia on the other hand has AMAZING feeling keys. The entire keyboard just seems better in terms of overall quality relative to the MPC. I really don’t get the love people have for the MPC Mini when you comapre it to something like this Arturia.If, like me, you are on the fence about which to get, just spend the 10 extra bucks for the Arturia MiniLab. The keyboard feels amazing, the pads, sliders, and nobs work great, the software it comes with is simple and works well, and it’s just an overall better quality product. The only reason one might go with the MPC is if they care a great deal about having big pads or need some of the unique control features that the MPC offers and the Arturia doesn’t. But, if all you are looking for is a small quality keyboard to make melodies and beats, this is the controller for you.

    Piece of junk

    I bought this last christmas and its never worked. I have tried and tried to get support from Arturia but still no joy. Basically a paper weight at this stage.
