Akai Professional MPK Mini Play Keyboard with Built-In Speaker

With 8 backlit MPC drum pads and a 4-way joystick for simple control, players have all they need to play their music anytime, anywhere. Four knobs (two banks capable of controlling eight different parameters) can be used to tweak sounds and edit multiple parameters in real time, giving musicians even more performance possibilities. Powered by 3 AA batteries, MPK Mini Play is built for hours of wireless fun.
