MiniLab MkII Firmware V1.1

  • Improved control accuracy
    Responsive controls are crucial to inspiring music creation. We’ve adjusted MiniLab MkII’s knobs to be more accurate and sensitive to subtle tweaks – capture every detail of your sound.
  • Configurable pad backlighting
    RGB feedback on MiniLab MkII’s pads has been refined. Pads remain backlit even when not in use, and you can disable individual LEDs without creating new templates.
  • Enhanced Pitch Bend
    The Pitch Bend touch strip is even smoother than before, with greater note accuracy, for effortless slides and bends.
  • Octave button feedback
    We’ve changed the Oct- & Oct+ pad LEDs to be fixed rather than flashing. This makes octaves easier to track and the interface less distracting during your performance or session.

MiniLab MkII comes with 3 incredible software titles, free of charge. Instantly create slick, professional mixes and inspiring compositions right out the box.
