Portable AA battery-powered instruments are rarely considered impressive, but the Akais MPK Mini Play hopes to change this perception. Loaded with 128 sounds and 10 drum kits, this powerful portable instrument serves as a more compact version of the original MPK Mini. The MPK Mini Play also comes equipped with eight backlit drum pads and a four-way joystick for additional control.

All of these features come alongside a 25-key keyboard and the ability to use the device as a USB MIDI controller. All of the features contribute to an impressive musical instrument but the true appeal of the MPK Mini Play lies in its portability. Requiring just three AA batteries, the instrument comes with a built-in microphone and a headphone jack for more discreet monitoring.
