Poor Poor Quality - Check it out as soon as you get it!

Chief Propellerhead, amazon.com

  • Summary: I am returning my third unit, as confirmed by tech support, which is defective. The first and second unit I tried had an odd issue of only playing one key on a poly patch. The non-function applied to only a few keys, and yet the others would work well.

Good Controller, but not perfect.

  • Summary: I wouldn't buy this one again just because I need something more professional. The keys are very resistant and so are the pads. Yes you can change the sensitivity of the pads if you open it up and add layers of rubber.. But that is something that should've been taken care of in the factory.

  • Summary: this thing is extremely useful and convenient, however there were some things i didn't like as much. the knobs are a bit slow to turn and you have to hit the mpc pads surprisingly hard to get them to register the hit. overall very fast and intuitive.

Nice little controller.

  • Summary: The mpc note repeat function on the pads is one of the main reasons I bought this controller and it rocks. Takes a little bit of fiddling with the settings on your sequencer to get things going right, but once set up this keyboard works nicely.

takes a bit to get used to. pads are USELESS without modification

McDowell, amazon.com

  • Summary: The keyboard, and controlling software is great. I really like Abelton Live after taking the tutorials! This comes with a older version of Abelton Live but it is a free download to get the latest version! Works great with my Macbook! The bad part is that the pads are not sensitive at all.
