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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I use this keyboard just to input MIDI events while I'm editing MIDI programs. Works great for this purpose. It is quite responsive to velocity. Nice for the price. (I only wish it had aftertouch.) The octave keys also make it very usable for live jammimg.
Excerpt: I got this as a replacement for my (mysteriously dead) M-Audio Oxygen8. I wanted something smaller, that I could leave on my desk all the time. And this fits the bill nicely. I'm using it with Ableton Live on Mac OS X. Live found it easily.
Excerpt: The lpk25 is perhaps not the greatest midi controller out there, but considering its price for a brand new one there isn't much you can ask.it has a sweet little, simple to use arp that comes with a software its keys are a kinda small but thats not a problem overall its great for just [$]and most...
