#XMasList: Akai MPK Mini MKII Compact Keyboard / Controller
For making beats, I’m totally laptop based. No other equipment needed. I do everything within the confines of Apple Logic Pro X. But I’ve always thought maybe a small controller with e mini keyboard and some sample pads would be great. Since I do a lot of beats in my work commute, I need things are are compact and easy to use. The AKAI Mini MKII seems to fit the bill. It’s very small, UBS-powered and should integrate easily with beat-making.
