Arturia updates its portable MiniLab MkII MIDI controller to firmware 1.1 with little but fine new features & workflow improvements.
Arturia has released a new firmware for its MiniLab MkIII portable 25-note slim-key MIDI controller. The new firmware 1.1 is a free update and includes new functions but also improvements that came directly from customer feedback.
The new update brings configurable pad backlighting with the help of the software editor. RGB feedback on MiniLab MkII’s pads has been refined and pads remain backlit even when not in use, and you can disable individual LEDs without creating new templates.
The developers also adjusted MiniLab MkII’s knobs to be more accurate and sensitive to subtle tweaks – capture every detail of your sound. This brings major improvements for the control accuracy. Further, the pitch bend has been enhanced. It’s now smoother than before, with greater note accuracy, for better slides and bends.
Last but not least, Oct- & Oct+ pad LEDs are now fixed rather than flashing. This makes octaves easier to track and the interface less distracting during your performance or session. It’s not a huge update but one that makes the MiniLab Mk II better.
Arturia MiniLab MkII firmware 1.1 update is available from Arturia’s MIDI Control Center. The keyboard costs $99 USD/€.
