Arturia MiniLab MkII Reviews

Great if you love customization

The presets that come with the software are amazing and I love all the knobs so that I can throw in some interesting sounds while recording. The keys are a little small, and I'm not the biggest fan of the fake wood on the side but other than that the design looks great. Everything you'd want in an affordable midi controller, especially if you like to experiment with new sounds.

Great tool!

Honestly the best synthesizer you can get at this price point. The software it comes with is a huuuuge plus.

Great bang for the Buck

Love this little controller, I use it as an additional controller to my current set up for live performance. The knobs feel great and there is a lot of added features that come with it.

MiniLab: An all-around classic

The first thing I'd like to say about this Mini boy is that it lives up to its description. It's portable for sure. I previously had a Novation Launchkey, and though that keyboard was also portable, it lacked a certain durability. The cable would frequently need re-plugging to show up on my computer. There are no such problems with the Arturia MiniLab. It's built durably enough to trust stuffing it into a backpack, and the keys feel sturdy when played with emotion. Even when I let myself get a bit carried away, I don't fear that my keys will bust under pressure. Excellent encoders and pads as well. The software for remapping MIDI controls is a breeze, and lets you save your mappings for easy reload.

Great MIDI controller

As a music enthusiast, this is a great first MIDI controller. The installation and operation is very intuitive. The bundled software options included get one started quickly. The keys are pressure sensitive providing dynamics equivalent to the pressure and the attack on the each key - very acoustic like feel.

Quality board with amazing software / virtual instruments

I picked this keyboard for it's hardware and software bundle (worth the price of the keyboard alone) after checking out lots of reviews online. This was a sweet spot in value and quality. Keys have a springy, expressive feel, velocity sensitivity is good, and it fits on my desk where I can work with it, or my typing keyboard.
