the shipping just totally kills the drop, otherwise i'd get this

I didnt get this off of Massdrop, but this a fairly good deal for a new item. It comes with some really great software, and the controller itself is okay, it looks pretty nice too. Good starting midi controller

Great news group! We placed the order for the Arturia MiniLab 25-Key MIDI Controller shortly after the drop ended.

Our vendor will be preparing it for shipment.

The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you all with updated information.

Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 7/15 or sooner if something comes up.
I think that's cheating to use the MSRP instead of the MAP price to start counting the discount. After shipping this is closer for 15% off. :)
I too own this product, and it doesn't really have any beneficial drivers. The encoders for the knobs are poor quality, I wish I would have bought a different controller than this one.
I am a current owner of this keyboard, and I feel I should note the knobs are cheap and the encoders don't function properly. It's got some strange acceleration system that as far as I know can't be disabled, but bar acceleration they're too slow to do a 1:1 knob-to-midi mapping. You can't make them faster. You have to move your wrist around in awkward jerks to make a decent sweep because one loop around the encoder doesn't cover the full range in MIDI.

Did you ever try switching the encorders between 'relative' and 'absolute' mode? Have you tried the updated firmware? What DAW did you see this behavior in? Was it limited to trying to use Analog Lab as a VST in said DAW? I'm trying to research this issue and everything seems to be from 2013/2014.

Everyone's real quick to jump to the relative vs absolute control issue. That is not the problem. That is a completely different problem, and one with a simple fix. The encoders are in absolute mode, but they are still slow and still have strange acceleration behaviour.
I have not used analog lab; I use ableton and its included plugins as well as some VSTs. I may try analog lab and see if that particular program interprets the MIDI differently.

It's a go! The order for the Arturia MiniLab 25-Key MIDI Controller was placed just after the drop came to an end. Now our vendor will be working hard to prepare it for shipment to each of you.

As soon as we receive word from the vendor about the shipping schedule, we will update you all with that information.

Look forward to another update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 5/14 or earlier if anything comes up.
Anyone have a clue as to when these are going to ship?
I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask, but I want to get into making music, would this Midi controller be a wise buy?
Cool, heard this was a great midi!
Bought this thing on amazon a couple of months ago. I really like the software, and it works with garageband and Logic Pro X. The controller itself is pretty fun to use. Knobs only work in Arturia's software as far as I know. The pads are not really as good as I was hoping, but the keyboard is great if you don't mind small keys.

it's a universal controller. like just about any other midi controller, the knobs can be set to control just about anything which makes it possible to record live automation. also, it keeps your hands on the keyboard a bit more instead of going back and forth between the keyboard and mouse when creating and dialing in a particular sound you're trying to get. ie : adjusting things like cutoff, attack, delay, sustain, resonance, etc.
Where are the other 8 pads that are mentioned in the description? And the 9 sliders/faders?
While I stand by my purchase of an AKAI MPK mkII as my travel MIDI keyboard, I will say that the MiniLab has a nice VST suite bundled with it and, unlike the MPK, will connect to an iPad through the camera connection kit without resorting to kung-fu treachery (a long and dumb story I will save for an MPK drop).
1. Is there a MIDI output port?
2. Is this brand any good? I got a Samson controller a few months back and the pads keep double-hitting, so it was basically a waste of money. Am I going to be disappointed again if I get this?

I haven't used it, but check some reviews from youtube. They seem to be very positive.
