Great Entry Tool

  • Excerpt: I am just entering into the world of using VST samplers to build parts to songs that I will sing and play guitar over. This was an economical choice that I bought based off of other reviews. It was instantly recognized by my Windows computer and Reaper making setup very easy. The biggest adjustment is learning the touch response fo the keys.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to setup, Easy To Use, Lightweight

Bang For the Buck

  • Excerpt: I'm using this as a keyboard controller for Ableton Live. This is quite an improvement over fiddling with my laptop's keys to check out various notes / sounds. The workflow is definitely much smoother with this keyboard. The action on the keys is a little tricky to get used to. They seem to be single-sprung, but the springs are rather stiff. I hope they loosen up a bit over time. Of course, I'm new to the world of keyboards, so maybe this is normal.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I use two DAW's in VST system link. I needed another controller to more easily trigger sounds from the secondary DAW because routing MIDI through VST system link isn't exactly swift enough for my workflow. All I needed was a way to trigger sounds from the other DAW and this controller did that and more. Plus, with USB plug and play, it was simple as can be to set up.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, The arpeggiator is great

Simple, yet effective

  • Excerpt: Bought this to use with VST drums in recording software. Works pretty good, keys are a little small; but the upside to this is that it is small enough to store in a drawer instead of taking up space on the desktop. Seems pretty durable compared to the M-Audio controllers that I tested at the local [@] (those seemed like thin, cheap plastic).

  • Excerpt: As an animator I learned that you get what you pay for. I bought the keyboard so I could make simple scores for animations. For a cheaper midi keyboard it is simple and nice. I had no problems with the connection and installation. And there is no annoying delay. It works very well. What I don't like is the size and the key weight. If you have bigger fingers I would look to something with bigger keys. Also when pressing the key the lack of weight just feels awkward.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Good Connectivity, Lightweight
  • Cons: Feels Awkward, Limited Functions

  • Excerpt: I am using this keyboard to learn how to play the piano. My Professor told me that I needed to get a keyboard, so I decided to go and get this controller. It works almost perfectly and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The only thing I don't like is how sensitive the velocity is...that's really the only con.
  • Pros: Affordable, Attractive, Easy to Edit, Good Size
  • Cons: Too Sensitive
