Whether you have a home studio or you’re just getting started on making your own music, a keyboard is a must. That’s why the concept of a mini keyboard is such a cool one, and the Akai MPK Mini MKII really fits the bill. Look at how easy it is to use!

At 12 inches long, this baby keyboard is easy enough to stow into your backpack on the go. But pop it out, plug it into your laptop via USB, and you’re ready to write. 

Sure, it’s no Nord (although the red sure is reminiscent of one). But at $69.99, it’s a really cheap way to tinker with composing, and if your brain is overflowing with ideas you may as well start somewhere.
