is very nice

immerohnegott, music123

  • Summary: First off, this guy seems to be put together by people who make tanks. Build quality is, in a word, substantial. The keys feel good, though I've gotten used to my girlfriend's digital piano, which has fully-weighted keys. Along that same line, I found the velocity curve on the keys a little funky compared to the piano's, but it isn't something I can't get used to. Would be nice to have more control over it than a simple On/Off toggle.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Quality

Akai MPK49 Rocks

goldielockz, amazon.com
29 January 2012
  • Summary: The Akai MPK49 is a controller, so it doesnt come with presets which is fine if you have FL studios or some other software installed onto your computer! It links with your software and completely cotomizable, so if you want your an Abino synth or something in your track, its easy to set and teak the synth sounds through this controller and not on your comp! Super cool product, I'd recommend it!

Great build quality, easy to use, UPGRADE the pads

Brian, amazon.com
23 January 2012
  • Summary: As many other reviewers have been saying, the build quality of this product is great. Very sturdy, no rattling or flex. Connection and setup with FLStudio was a breeze (though I did need to hunt down some custom midi mappings). The feel of the keys is in line with what I expected. Decent weight and response (though certainly not as good as full weighted keys would be). The knobs and sliders have a really good feel to them. Perfect level of resistance.

Solid and Dependable

Mr. Pwn, amazon.com
21 December 2011
  • Summary: This is a great unit for the money. I've had mine for a few months now without any problems. The drum pads are a bit stiff, but I rarely use them so it's not a bother to me. The keys do feel a bit cheap, but they're very responsive. The wheels and knobs are what make this unit though. They really have a great feel and have yet to let me down. If you're a professional pianist, chances are you're looking for something well above this price point.

"Buy this , you won't regert it"

By a customer from yahoo.com, zzounds.com

  • Excerpt: It really doesn't have any sound . It's just a MIDI controller . You need DAW software .

Not what I thought, but in some ways better than I'd hoped for.

Matthew Brown "Thew", amazon.com
27 October 2011
  • Summary: This device is most definitely NOT for any sort or amateur musician. When I bought this, I'm guessing there was either a great commission on the sale, or the employee at my local retailer just didn't know what he was talking about. Most basically, this is nothing more than a MIDI controller, which means you have to provide the programming to get the sounds you want, or you must have the proper types of software on your computer.
