excellent little midi controller
HopelessComposer, 24.10.2019
I have absolutely no regrets buying this.
It works so well with my Arturia V collection, as well as with the Ableton Suite. I had no problems getting it to work with Sibelius as well.

I was a little worried before I bought it that my rock-climbing man hands might not like the mini keys, but my concerns were unfounded. The keys are nice to play, very expressive and seem to be able to take a beating. The whole unit is solidly constructed and honestly looks much more expensive than it was. I'm not much of a finger drummer but the velocity sensitive pads are of the same high quality are the rest of the unit. Having 16 rotary encoders is a real life enhancement. I was previously using a mouse :p

The pitch and modulation strips work well. The pitch bend auto-centers when you let go, as it should.
The modulation strip will stay at the value of your last touch.
Controlling modulation via a touch sensitive strip is actually better than having a wheel, since you can pick out individual values without passing through the intermediate values if you want. That just isn't possible with a wheel, so yay :)

So, I'd say if you are looking for a 2 octave midi controller on a budget the MiniLab is excellent value for your money.

It really worths the price!
Armanii, 29.12.2019
The controller is really solid made and has quite good built quality. If you're using Ableton Live, it comes with quite good midi mapping preset and of course, you have the option to customize your midi mappings and what I love about it is the limitless rotary 16 encoders, so you can adjust the parameters, no matter what's the current knob's position.
It also comes with really good software bundle! AnalogLab lite is more than enough if you are just starting the synth world! It comes with 500 presets which you can tweak around all the different parameters and mix different synths here and there!
I really recommend to have it as a handy gadget in your home studio!

Great small keyboard with pads and encoders
JThomas, 28.01.2019
The main reason why I bought this controller was to have a small keyboard with endless rotary encoders. I don't like pan pots because it's hard to map them to your VSTs. So after a lot of research, I found that this Minilab was basically the only keyboard who actually had proper encoders!

I was also looking for a smaller keyboard to put on my desktop. Most keyboards with only 2 octaves tend to have a "cheap" feel, and move easily when playing on it (I'm a pianist). But here, the build is quite sturdy. You can really play on it and it won't budge. I must say some of the keys can be a bit stiff, but I feel that it gets better overtime.

The keys themselves are a decent size, and I like the fact that they're not hollow at the bottom (like most cheaper controllers). The pads are alright, but they're not as good as Maschine or Ableton Push pads because you have to press harder to trigger them correctly. But I don't really mind since I don't really use the Minilab to drum on it.

The cherry on the cake? This keyboard comes with a free full version of Arturia Lab, meaning that you get hundreds of great sounding presets from the Arturia VSTs. And it's perfectly mapped to the Minilab, so you can play and tweak the sound at the same time.

Overall a great buy. I actually bought Arturia's Keystep after that. They're a good combo.

great to start making music
Gabri88, 26.09.2019
bought it to produce electronic music, it is very well built and the keys give a natural response when pressed (quite close to a real piano). the knobs are not super smooth but they are endless encoder that makes them a very nice addition compared to similar products. You get a nice selection of presets with it, however you need to install a lot of software to use them.
