MPK MINI Editor does not open on my MacBook Pro

MPK MINI Editor does not open on my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017).
First time it crashed with an error message which I unfortunately clicked away to try it again. Now my cursor is just spinning for ever. When I force-quit the app, I can report the following error message (full message is too long, but I can send it by mail if you like):

  • Hey André

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry you're having some trouble with that! The original MPK mini is an older controller but its editor software will open on that operating system:



    If you have the icon for the MPK editor in your Applications folder, there is an alternative way to open it that we can try. Navigate to the editor's icon with Finder, right-click it, select Show Package Contents, and navigate to the directory that is highlighted in red in the image below:



    Open the file labeled MPK MINI Editor like in the image. Your computer's Terminal application will open and run the protocol to open the editor.

    I hope that helps you!

  • Unfortunately it does not work. The terminal shows the following errors:

  • I’m disappointed but hopeful
    Hello
    Having the same trouble! Any solution AKAI people? The editor used to work until High Sierra / APFS.

    Unknown compression scheme. Bad pointer.

    It appears that there is some bad code in the APK Mini Mk1 Editor file that the APFS can't handle, so perhaps a programmer could have a look and recompile the code?

  • I’m frustrated
    That is pretty disappointing after 8 months, no real signal from AKAI.
