  • Excerpt: I very happy with this purchases. My Korg K61 just broke so this is my replacement. The keys are a little small but the are way more responsive then the K61. I've having trouble mapping the keys but I have not put in the time to get them working properly. Thanks Sonar for making my life of a pain in the butt. Overall this keyboard is a great deal.
  • Pros: Well Constructive
  • Cons: Mapping Is A Pain

  • Excerpt: FIRST THINGS FIRST! Go to Alesis website, DOWNLOAD LATEST FIRMWARE! Its very easy to install. Heard a lot if complaints of velocity problems, I had them too. The new firmware fixed my issue though. My first impression of this keyboard was skeptical at best. The keys and knobs and faders all felt a bit "fluffy". The entire unit was a little light IMO. After about two hours watching videos, reading instructions, and searching for tips.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly programmable, Lightweight, Portable
  • Cons: Flimsy, Lacks precision, Not Consistent

Great product

  • Excerpt: The company shipped the product right away. It looks and works great. My only concern is, the directions booklet says nothing about how to set any of the nobs, or how to work the program. It has been difficult locating information on how to work everything.
  • Pros: Excellent Sound
  • Cons: Hard To Use

it could be great....

  • Excerpt: Potentially a great unit if not for Alesis' bad quality control. The key bed felt a little mushy right out of the box. After an hour of use, the 2nd octave A# and G# keys started sticking after release. It's going back for an exchange. maybe it was a bad unit but I expected better QC from Alesis. If the second unit is problematic as well, I'll try another manufacturer. The Quickstart guide is poorly written as well and it seems no actual manual exists for the unit.
  • Pros: Has assignable MIDI out, Inexpensive, Professional Features
  • Cons: Cryptic display, Feels cheap, Mushy keys, Not Consistent

All good but documentation.

  • Excerpt: It might be better if there is additional "Slow (Detailed) Start Guide" besides "Quick Start Guide". Documentation is made for somebody who already knows everything about MIDI and MIDI controllers. Not for beginners as I am. There is no any description about any of terms used in guide. If you are novice to MIDI/Controller there is no way you will be able even to make any sound out of it. At least they should include a few samples for making sound.
  • Pros: Maybe price
  • Cons: Difficult to Use, Limited Sound Selection, Poor Instructions

Awesome Keyboard - E flat sticking

  • Excerpt: Really good keyboard for the price. Play button is a dual release so doesn't work as a play button. My E flat key is broken, it sticks sometimes. I don't have time to head in and get it looked at : ( But I would recommend this over the M-Audio. I owned an M-Audio and this one has better keys, knobs and pads.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
  • Cons: Poor Action

Awsome controller, great keys and solid knobs...

  • Summary: This is one fantastic keyboard. I've owned edirol, m-audio, evolution and bunch of other controllers in the past, and I have to say that the keys on Alesis feel much smoother and responsive out of them all. It looks good, has big screen, knobs and sliders are very responsive and sturdy. It is quite slim, so it will save you a lot of space. The pads on the other hand, quite suck, if you hit them on the edge, they won't respond.

Alesis QX49 USB-MIDI keyboard (49 toetsen)

  • Summary: Beste heer de Vries, Hierbij een antwoord op uw vraag. De Q49 wordt geleverd met een kopie van Ableton Live Lite, en Alesis Edition-software, voor het uitvoeren, opnemen en arrangeren van muziek, Je bent vrij om zelf te kiezen welk software pakket je wilt gebruiken je zult het zelf moeten ondervinden wat voor u de ideale software kan zijn. Zelf gebruik ik Cubase van Steinberg, vind ik persoonlijkl gemakkelijk en overzichtelijk. Met vr.
