Expensive, but worth it

 

Sick.

Clean, sturdy, great functionality.

Steep learning curve. But thats the price you have to pay for crazy functionality.

Sweet MIDI Board

 

As noted, I have used this with Reason and it works great!!! Definitely worth the price I think for a solid MIDI keyboard. I have also used it with Creative X-Fi software that came with my Creative X-Fi Elite Pro (really great btw) and it works great....

Awesome adjustable curve velocity for keys (very sensitive to pressure amount if wanted). Great sturdy feel. Wheels feel very nice and pitch bend wheel doesn't bounce when let go at high or low extreme, returns nicely to original position. Easy octave...

Drum pads are a bit small, alright for use with fingers. No MIDI cable or power cable included. Can use included USB for both power and data but would prefer MIDI/DC. Gets stuck on a note sometimes when first starting out through Reason but is easy to...

New at mixing with Controller

 

Now I'm new at this ,but I can see its potential you could lay several tracks together to make a beat or sound.... The only reason I put the Keyboard size as a con... You can't play the full octave range of keys at one time you can make loops and go...

Semi Weighted keys.... Good Quality... lots of knobs... Added pad...

Not a full sized keyboard.... See Other Thoughts.... Limited Manual...

Excellent.

 

this was the first midi keyboard i had bought, and i proudly say i chose wisely. may not be the best choice for your primary studio keyboard, but its a great thing to start with

great key response, pads work great, sturdy quality (mine's been dropped down half a flight of concrete stairs before even). one great thing that i use it for is as a MIDI interface; when just with my laptop, i could plug in a second midi device...

endless-rotary knobs get easier to turn over time. also, if you dont read up on how to use this, you may end up having to reset settings on it in order to get it working properly again (numerous times when i have had somebody press a few buttons and an...

Ridiculous!

 

User manual doesn't explain how to connect MIDI device to all Multi-Track/Studio Co. Software, the selection is limited but you can troubleshoot that type of problem.

Very good controller, especially when used with FL Studio 8. Weighted keys are actually a really good feature and everything feels legit, Studio Quality. In addition, very decent programming interface.

12V Adapter not included. (cheap- just get one) There aren't any true cons that I have come across with using this product.

Not bad

 

I have the 61-key version, which is identical except for the number of keys (DUH) and 9 sliders not present on the 25 key version. The sliders are cheapo, the endless rotary knobs (present on all versions) are excellent.

One of the best controllers available. Excellent programing fearures, endless rotary knobs, works very well with Reason. Relatively heavy (that's a good thing). Decent drum pads. Definitely worth the money, but there is room for improvement

The keys, while far superior to cheaper controllers, still not quite as good as real synthesizers (Triton/Motif). Keys a bit noisy. Drum pads are OK, but not quite MPC quality

My 2nd Favorite Small Scale Midi Keyboard

 

This is my 2nd favorite keyboard because of it's feel. The keys feel SO good, and the pads rock, though the knobs are nothing special. I use this as my secondary small scale keyboard, and the Rolan...
