Akai MiniAK Editor and Librarian

Patch Base has the best Akai MiniAK editor and librarian available for Mac and iPad. Edit any parameter, organize patches, create random patches, and more.

Program (Voice) Editor

No more menu diving. Edit every voice parameter on your MiniAK in real-time. Adjust and fine-tune all of the oscillators, filters, envelopes, LFOs, FM routing, effects, and modulation capabilities that the Micron is hiding inside:

  • Visualize all of the dozens of parameters in a MiniAK voice
  • Full access to the 12 parts routings in the Mod Matrix
  • Copy/paste envelopes for ease of editing
  • Select and edit any of the effects on the 2 separate effects units
  • Assign the 3 Knobs on the MiniAK to practically any parameter
  • Visual editing of the Tracking Gen

Bank Editor

Edit and organize all of the MiniAK's 8 Program Banks. While the MiniAK shows its sounds on-board as an alphabetized list of sounds in categories, internally they are stored in 8 separate banks. Patch Base gives you direct access to these banks, so you can organize them and back them up to files on your device.

Patch Librarian

  • Save your patches and banks as files on your iPad or Mac: Patch Base saves files as sysex that can be sent to your synth by Patch Base or any general-purpose sysex transfer app.
  • Organize your sounds: Create folders to organize your patches and banks.
  • iCloud integration: Optionally use iCloud to make your patch files accessible on any iCloud-connected device, and to automatically sync files between Patch Base on Mac and iPad.
  • Import sysex files: Import existing patch and bank sysex files to Patch Base. On Mac, simply drop your files into the Patch Base browser. On iPad, easily import using iCloud or the Files app.
