8 x Assignable Encoders
37 KEYS – GEN 2 DYNAMIC KEYBED
MPK Mini Plus features 37 keys with the Gen 2 Dynamic Keybed for expanded melodic and harmonic creation. 3 full octaves for two-handed chords, arpeggiation, solos and soundscapes on incredibly playable keys with a wider velocity range, delivering a world-class level of note dynamics and response.
CREATIVE STEP/LIVE SEQUENCER / ARPEGGIATOR
For those creative moments or DAW-less jams sessions, the onboard polyphonic 2-track step/live Sequencer captures new melodic and drum patterns on the fly. 8 notes of polyphony per step, 16 notes per Drum Step and an onboard Arpeggiator offer endless creative possibilities.
REAL MPC DRUM PADS
8 velocity-sensitive RGB-backlit MPC Drum Pads are the backbone for not only playing dynamic beats and programming drums, but for also assigning program changes and triggering additional CC parameters.
ASSIGNABLE 360-ROTARY KNOBS
Dial in effects with the 8 assignable 360-rotary knobs for every function including filters, automation, pan controls, and more. Add depth and dimension to your tracks by writing precise automation.
CHORDS AND SCALES MODES
MPK Mini Plus features two modes to help simplify and accurately enhance your performances. Chords Mode plays multiple notes and inversions with a single key, and Scales Mode enables the keybed to play notes only in the selected scale. For both modes, many creative options are available along with 15 scale settings.
The MPK Mini Plus has dedicated Transport Controls for total integration into your DAW. Transport Controls help you stay engaged in the creative workflow with dedicated Play, Stop, Record, Loop, and Locator buttons.
REAL PITCH AND MODULATION WHEELS
With more keys, your music will need new ways to add feel and expression, so the MPK Mini Plus adds dedicated Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheel controllers to help all keyboard performances truly come alive.
ASSIGNABLE JOYSTICK CONTROLLER
For even more expression, assign parameters to the Joystick’s X/Y axis and morph between effects to create unique and interesting textures in your productions. Assign up to 4 parameters to the Joystick right from the keyboard itself.

Connect to any Class-Compliant USB or 5-pin MIDI device and use the CV/Gate connectors and Sync I/O to trigger and control your Euro-rack and other modular synths.
