Affordable & Portable Midi Keyboards

oh hey what’s up so it seemed like a
good time to do another the best MIDI
keyboards video this will be my 3.0
installment and there’s some new stuff
out there’s some stuff that I haven’t
talked about on the channel before that
I wanted to get into and I wanted to
focus today’s installment on portable
MIDI keyboards because I think that’s
what most people are really interested
in right now you want something that you
can use in the studio but also take with
you on the go
most of these are affordable as well so
that’s always a plus I think there’s
more great options than there’s ever
been for people who are looking for a
portable MIDI keyboard now as you can
see we got quite the stack to get
through today so I’m gonna try to keep
this as short and to the point as
possible so in this video I’ll go over
my favourites to talk about some pros
and cons hopefully help you find the
keyboard that is right for you and as
usual I will be doing a giveaway you’re
gonna pick multiple winners details for
the giveaway will be at the end of this
video so stay tuned for that but I think
that’s enough intro let’s get into the
video alright so starting us off today
is the latest offering from my friends
over at our Toria this is the new micro
lab and I just gotta show love
Vittorio’s software cents have been one
of the main cornerstones of my
songwriting process for years now and
more recently I’ve started using their
MIDI keyboards and have just been
completely satisfied I think the thing
that really sets their keyboards apart
is the keybed itself which in my opinion
just offers some superior playability
and just an overall better experience
this micro lab is a stripped down and
slightly more rugged version of the mini
lab mark – you can see here the size
difference and some difference in
features obviously the mini lab mark –
gives you some drum pads and all of
these programmable knobs which are
really great to have but if you’re
looking for the most compact option the
micro lab does offer the same key bed
that is in the mini lab mark – which is
great you got your pitch Bend and
modulation strips which function really
well you’ve got octave buttons you have
a sustain button and then you’ve got
this button that allows you to play one
finger chords so what you do is you hold
the button to play a chord and then you
can trigger that chord with any No
not necessarily a feature that I’m
personally gonna use too much but
definitely worth mentioning well the
most notable things about these a Toria
MIDI keyboards is that they come
packaged with some great included
software most notably in my opinion is
analog lab light analog lab light is a
vintage keys and vintage since plug-in
suite which gives you access to over 600
presets and sounds it’s a great
introduction into the world of notorious
synth and keyboard sounds which are some
of my favorite and most used plugins the
micro lab also has a built-in USB cable
and it wraps around the MIDI keyboard
nicely too always got a cable with you
and it keeps it nice and organized
personally I love that they included
this I feel like when I’m on the go I’ve
got dozens of cables that I need to keep
track of and this is one less thing that
I have to think about this rubberized
edge is really nice too and it comes in
a few different colors but the micro lab
is substantially more lightweight than
the mini lab mark – the thing that I
really like about this mini lab is it
feels super professional and sturdy and
heavy the plastic is really heavy-duty
I can’t really say the same about this
micro lab but I think that that’s okay
because this one is geared more towards
the person who wants the ultimate
lightweight portable option so if you’re
interested in Vitoria you want to try
out some of their plugins and you’re
looking for the most portable
lightweight and inexpensive option check
out the micro lab these are some one on
the Amazon right now for writing on each
box and I’ll be sure to include a link
in the description for those of you who
are interested but I think that’s a
steal you get this great key bed you get
some great included software you get a
nice portable yet rugged package that
fits nicely in a backpack you really
can’t go wrong this has been my main
on-the-go MIDI keyboard for the past
month or so you can see already got a
little bit of wear and tear on ER but
I’ve been totally happy this does
everything that I needed to do I don’t
really miss the drum pads all that much
because you can play all your drum
sounds right on your keyboard but if you
do want something that’s still
lightweight and portable a little more
heavy than the micro lab of course you
get drum pads and you get some
programmable knobs check out the mini
lab these sell for right around a
hundred bucks on Amazon and I still
think this is one of the best MIDI
keyboards on the market so I wanted to
bring it up for you guys
I’ve already done a pretty extensive
review of this keyboard I’ll be sure to
link a video up for you and even with
the micro lab coming and I still think
this is my mini MIDI keyboard of choice
but that’s gonna do it for our look at a
Tori of MIDI keyboards alright so next
up is the keyboard that I was probably
most excited to check out this is the
new launch key mini from Novation ya
fancy that I my first try – all right so
all right so oh all right so next up is
the keyboard so next up is to keep
alright so next I hope it still works
because I haven’t filmed any other demo
stuff yet nothing shakin on the inside
so that’s not a good sign I’m just
kidding that took me like a lot of tries
as far as the previous launch key minis
were concerned I was just a little bit
more impressed with some of the other
options that were available but this is
the latest this is the mk3 this is the
third installment of this launch key
mini and I think they really added some
stuff to this keyboard that makes it
worth considering so let’s talk about
that up until now I think the undisputed
champion of size portability features
was this guy the Akai MPK many everybody
seen this a lot of people use this one
and it was just kind of the best
all-around option if you were looking
for something small and portable but
also with quite a few features and then
this guy came along which little size
comparison very similar in size the
launch key mini is just slightly thinner

  • and it definitely feels like the
    launch key mini is coming for this crown
    so size of portability right out the
    gate eight plus this is gonna have no
    problem fitting in any bag that you have
    for my guitarist friends this will
    probably fit in the front pouch of your
    guitar bag so if you’re going to like a
    writing session or a jam session or
    whatever you can kind of just bring
    everything in one bag which is always
    dope even though the plastic is pretty
    lightweight and I definitely wouldn’t
    want to drop this thing this doesn’t
    feel cheap it has a nice enough weight
    to it and just the overall design of the
    product makes it feel kind of premium
    for the price tag now the only thing
    that I’m not so crazy about is this key
    bed there’s not a whole lot of key
    travel if there’s a little bit like
    you’re playing a toy the velocity
    sensitivity in my experience works just
    fine so there’s no issues there it’s
    just that the playing experience on this
    keyboard isn’t the greatest which listen
    this keyboard offers a lot of other
    great features which we’re going to get
    into so the keypad not being the best
    isn’t a deal-breaker at all for me now
    anybody familiar with the Novation
    launch key line knows this this is a
    product that is
    mostly geared towards Ableton Live users
    now I’m not in Ableton Live user so I’m
    not going to be able to download that
    for you I will be sure to link in the
    description below in proper demo of how
    this controller links up perfectly with
    Ableton Live but I’m hoping to make a
    case for this keyboard as a great option
    no matter what dog you’re using this
    launch key mini has 16
    velocity-sensitive RGB backlit pads but
    even for as small as these drum pads are
    I have been super impressed at how well
    they function we got this fixed cord
    control which like the micro lab that we
    looked at will allow you to program a
    cord and then trigger it with a single
    note we’ve got our pitch and modulation
    strips over here on the side we’ve got
    eight different programmable knobs
    we’ve got octave controls we have a
    transpose feature and on the back
    they’ve not only included a sustain
    pedal input but they’ve also included
    this MIDI out jack which will allow you
    to connect and control other made
    devices which is pretty crazy because
    you usually don’t see that feature and
    the device at this price point and then
    I think the feature that people are most
    ghast about is the arpeggiator because
    it’s pretty complex it can do a lot and
    it’s kind of the first built-in
    arpeggiator that has taken a swing at
    the built-in arpeggiator in the Akai MPK
    mini which is also very good but I think
    Novation takes it a few steps further
    the launch committee also does come
    bundled with some great included
    software most notably Ableton Live Lite
    which is the intro version to Ableton
    Live so you buy this MIDI keyboard and
    you have a da W to get started with
    making your music so the launch
    committee is just jam-packed with
    features and for my money I do think it
    has the slight edge on the Akai MPK mini
    as the ultimate portability plus
    features champion the Akai MPK mini is
    still a really solid option and if you
    want more information on this keyboard I
    will be sure to link up the video where
    I do a little bit more of an extensive
    review of this keyboard but I do really
    like the new kid on the block sand
    ovation launch key mini mark 3 is here
    to stay I think if you’re in Ableton
    Live user this is the option for you
    this is the way to go
    so that is the Novation launch key mini
    mark 3 so next up I have the complete
    control m32 MIDI keyboard from Native
    Instruments and not a first glance this
    may not look like the best option if
    portability is your top priority and
    that’s because this keyboard offers 32
    keys as opposed to 25 which is what you
    normally get in the smaller size MIDI
    keyboards I will say this will fit in
    most bags or backpacks but yeah if
    portability is your ultimate priority
    this is the biggest keyboard that we’re
    going to talk about today what I like
    about this mini keyboard though is that
    it is still small enough to be
    considered portable but it’s also big
    enough that it doesn’t feel like you’re
    working on a tiny little keyboard when
    you’re in your studio the key bet is
    really really nice to play really great
    velocity sensitivity in the keys the m32
    offers some great dock controls right on
    face at the keyboard it has these eight
    programmable knobs which can easily be
    dialed into perfection with up of this
    little LCD screen that will give you a
    readout for whatever parameter you’re
    controlling with your knobs
    and this keyboard will integrate
    perfectly with any instrument found in
    Native Instruments Komplete software as
    well as any nks instruments like a Toria
    output and you heat this keyboard also
    comes bundled with some incredible
    software including Ableton Live Lite to
    get you started making music again
    Ableton Live Lite is a great intro
    version of Ableton Live you also get
    some great native instrument staples
    like Maschine essentials and monarch as
    well as the complete control software
    just to name a few
    the f32 also comes with Native
    Instruments Komplete start which
    technically anybody can go and download
    it’s a lot like what a Toria has done
    with analog lab lite complete start is
    kind of an intro into the world of the
    native instrument sounds so all things
    considered the keyboard its playability
    its functionality the included software
    the size and portability but still it’s
    got some extra keys than the other ones
    do the price tag however is a little bit
    higher than some of the other keyboards
    that we looked at today the m32 right
    now is selling for about one hundred and
    thirty dollars on amazon so just have to
    decide if these extra features and the
    included software are worth the price
    mark up for you but in any event the
    complete control + 32 is a great option
    especially if you’re looking to get into
    the world of native instruments so
    lastly I’ve got kind of an interesting
    device that I want to check out with you
    guys this was a product that was sent to
    me recently from a company here in New
    York and they asked if I’d be willing to
    share some thoughts and so far in my
    limited use of this device I’m pretty
    impressed this is the morph from sin
    sole and as you can see
    it’s soups portable super thin now for
    as small as this packages the morph
    boasts some pretty impressive technology
    the morph has 20,000 pressure sensors in
    it which is really just a fancy way of
    saying that you will have a ton of
    dynamic range to play with but
    technically speaking this isn’t just a
    MIDI keyboard it’s intended to be an
    all-in-one control surface for artists
    and the control service changes its
    function with the swapping of these
    silicon overlays so if you want to play
    keys you have an overlay for that
    if you want to play drums you have a
    separate overlay for that and there’s
    even a separate overlay for music
    production with some drum pads and some
    piano keys this one’s actually really
    cool but they also offer silicon
    overlays for video editing and for your
    computer keyboard so in theory this
    device really could be kind of a
    one-stop shop for all of your computer
    video editing music production needs the
    thought of throwing just one super thin
    device in my bag along with my computer
    knowing that kind of all my bases are
    gonna be covered is ideal to say the
    least there’s no question that I think
    the technology is there for this device
    and I think it functions really well
    personally I would see myself using this
    music production overlay probably the
    most the keyboard overlay definitely
    functions just fine but I definitely
    missed the feeling of actual physical
    keys with that key travel underneath
    maybe I’m too old-school maybe I’m set
    in my ways but that’s just something
    that I’ve missed but again it’s like
    what do you expect from a piece of
    rubber it’s actually kind of remarkable
    that this control service is registering
    notes the same way a MIDI keyboard would
    if you’re a creative professional or
    even an aspiring one I think this is a
    really interesting device to consider
    whether I’m reading music or producing
    or editing video the thought of being
    able to have some nice controls right at
    my fingertips is really interesting I do
    think the $250 price point is gonna
    steer a lot of people away from this
    that 250 gets you the control surface
    and an overlay of your choice each
    additional overlay is thirty five bucks
    so the sense of morph might just be the
    ultimate compact portable versatile
    for creatives and musicians but it’s
    simply going to come at a slightly
    higher price tag than some of the other
    options that we looked at today so you
    will just have to determine if this is a
    good device for you all right so we
    covered a lot today that’s quite the
    ambitious undertaking by your boy
    Patrick so I’m frankly exhausted and
    definitely sweating so let’s get into
    the giveaway details and we’ll wrap this
    thing up so if you want to be entered to
    win one of the MIDI keyboards that we
    talked about today all you need to do is
    subscribe to this channel and hit that
    notification bell and leave a like and a
    comment on this video let me know in the

    keyboards is your favorite and why and

    this giveaway I pick the first winner

    second winner when the video heads a

    are just a small way for me to show my
    gratitude so until next time guys my

Mini Piano Review

The mini piano is a kind of grand piano designed by the Brasted Brothers in early 1934 under the trade name of Eavestaff Ltd.. The distinguishing factor that sets this particular mini piano apart from all other kinds of upright pianos is that the sound-generating mechanism is located below the keys, enabling a very economical utilization of real estate. The piano has four tuned tones and, like its forerunner the grand piano, it is also quite large. The Eavestaff family later went on to design and manufacture musical synthesizers and cellos.

Today, as is the case with all good things, the mini piano has seen better days. The main problem being the tendency of many people, particularly young kids, to play songs such as Back in Black with their mini piano instead of the real thing. Although it is true that the songwriters probably had a lot more fun recording it than they would have done if they had used a full sized acoustic instrument, the guitar and drum set in the background is probably what made the song popular in the first place. It also probably influenced listeners to try to recreate the sound on their own miniature instruments. This has lead to a situation where you can hear a great number of different styles of music being played on the same instrument.

If you are a person who likes to play music on your piano and who has never played an actual instrument before, the best solution for you is to get yourself or a friend an electric mini grand piano and a drum kit. You will have the advantage of using the piano and the drum kit in your own home and at a much lower cost than you would ever find in a studio. Not to mention that you can use the equipment you get from a rental shop for much cheaper than you would ever pay for a piano or a drum set.

For someone who has already played an instrument and knows how to play it, getting a mini electric piano and a drum kit is great for learning how to play. It will give them the opportunity to expand their musical horizons by learning how to play songs in a different style than they might have traditionally learned. The best way for most people to learn how to play a new instrument is to take lessons from a professional. However, this can be expensive and many people do not have the money to take a course so they just begin to play on an instrument they like.

Getting a mini electric piano and a drum kit can be just what you need to take your music to the next level. They are smaller than upright pianos and much easier to handle. They are much more comfortable to sit down and play and they are designed to move easily under your feet making it very easy for you to play. They are small enough that you can even put them in a car and drive around with them. They are also much less expensive than an upright piano making them a great investment for anyone wanting to get started with a musical instrument.

One of the biggest advantages is that a mini piano and a drum kit can be very portable. If you want to take your music farther than you might have otherwise you can bring them along with you. If you find that you are moving from town to town with your mini piano or drum kit, then they will be a great way to take your music wherever you go.

Yamaha mini grand piano

If you’re looking for a new, used or vintage Yamaha mini piano then you can easily find it on the internet at extremely reasonable prices. There are many great reviews out there from consumers just like you and me, who have purchased and have been very pleased with the quality of the mini piano that they purchased. These pianos are manufactured by Yamaha and come in many different styles and sizes. Here is what you need to know about Yamaha mini grand piano price comparisons.

First off, comparing prices on a used piano is not as hard as most people think. You can purchase a great used piano on the internet even if it is a second hand model. Most people do not know that there are companies out there that specialize in selling used pianos and these companies usually give their customers a lot of leeway when it comes to pricing. When you compare a used Yamaha mini piano against a new one you will always see a marked price difference.

If you are a beginner and have never been a big fan of pianos before then I recommend that you start out by just getting a used Yamaha mini piano until you are more comfortable with the larger sized models. If you already have a piano and are ready to buy a used version then you have a couple of options available to you. The first option is to go online and use an online price comparison site such as Amazon to do your mini piano shopping. You can easily compare the features and benefits of each model including price. The other option is to head down to your local used music store in your area and try to negotiate a price with the salesperson so that you can get a lower price on the used Yamaha mini piano.

Schoenhut mini piano

When the demand for musical Schoenhut products was high, the company expanded into other types of musical instruments including harps, tabletop drums, jingle boxes, and even accordions. Today, there is a Schoenhut Jingle Box for every type of imaginable musical instrument!

A Schoenhut chest style piano is a solid and stable medium height instrument that can accommodate either the hands or the mouth. This is a great addition to a bedroom set, because the lid can be closed and the lid also secured with a decorative plate. This particular style of Schoenhut piano also comes in a “chalkboard” finish. It is similar to the original waxed finish but it has been refinished to look as if it’s simply been hanging on a wall over the years. Regardless of which Schoenhut chest style you choose, rest assured that this piece of furniture will be a great addition to any home, and it may be just the thing to complete your decorating scheme!

Korg mini piano

The Korg mini piano is the perfect product for the person who just has a bit of time to devote to playing the piano. This small sized instrument has a wonderful range of sounds that can be used with a variety of musical styles and effects. The instrument is quite light in weight and is quite compact, which is also good for anyone who wants to move the instrument easily from one place to another. It can be used to play in different parts of the home or taken on trips so you do not need a large amount of space to keep it.

The sound produced by the Korg mini piano is true for all of the instruments produced by the company. There are plenty of different sounds available, but a favorite among many users is the classic warm tone that come out when you pluck the strings. Another favorite is the extremely deep bass, which is produced when you pluck the strings very hard. A great characteristic of this mini piano is that you can change the tone simply by plucking the strings with more force!

If you are interested in the piano, you will want to make sure that it is well balanced. This means that you should be able to sit at the instrument without having to rest your back against the tabletop. The instrument should not be too heavy as well, so if you have a thick frame you may want to consider buying a tabletop model. All in all, the Korg mini piano is an excellent investment since it will provide you with hours of musical entertainment!

Kawai mini grand piano

Kawai have their own benefits as a musical instrument. If you haven’t heard about the grand piano, it is basically a smaller piano with more detail than its full-sized counterpart. In other words, a Kawai mini piano is smaller than its full-sized brother, and it comes with all the same features as well. So how does it fare in comparison?

The short answer is that the Kawai mini can be a great investment for any serious pianist. It’s smaller size makes it easy to move around, and because of its lower cost, you don’t need to buy an entirely new piano when you get one. You also won’t have to sacrifice the same high quality as a full sized model. This is a huge advantage if you think you could benefit from having a smaller, less elaborate piano. If you want to play jazz, you’ll love it, if classical is your thing, it will be great.

If you’re not familiar with mini-instruments, they are instruments with parts about three times as big as regular instruments. Instead of a music keyboard, they have pedals, valves, and so on. Usually, they are made out of wood, but sometimes they are also created out of metals or ceramics. Whatever the material is, it usually feels and sounds like a real instrument.
