Summary: This is a controller for inputting MIDI into a computer. It does that quite well. If you try to actually play on it, however, it's not what you're looking for. The keys are really light so it doesn't feel anything like a real piano.
Summary: This is definitely for someone who has a computer that does everything for them, which is how mine is set up. All my effects and everything are on the computer side, this is just a keyboard for input, I use mine for production. Unit is somewhat flimsy, but doesn't matter if it's just sitting on a desk. Not a performance keyboard, but great for basic use. I would recommend it for a beginner or someone who just wants to use a keyboard with their computer.
Summary: It doesn't matter so much to me, but it's important you know that the keyboard has no speakers to play by itself. It can only be played through your computer. But for GarageBand on Mac, you just plug it in and it works. Great for producing/arranging music.
Summary: It was a little tricky to install, but once done, it proved to be a nice keyboard. Since it uses USB 2.0, its even more responsive than regular midi cables. Works flawlessly with Cakewalk Sonar. Make sure your XP or Vista Pc has the usb audio update from Microsoft.
Summary: Very versatile when hooked up to Reason4. Had to reload the drivers a couple of times, but seems to be stable. Would buy again. Have fun and be creative. My 3 year old has tons of fun with it, yet I could see how an aspiring producer could use this with the appropriate software. This keyboard is only limited by the software you choose to utilize.
Summary: This is exactly the keyboard you need if have a computer that does it all. This keyboad is compact, well made, and has all the features you need for simple MIDI entry. I don't recommend it for performance, though - not at all rugged. Great for Apple-based studio (or Wintel).
Summary: I Ordered This USB Midi Keyboard & It Came 2 Days Later, Hooked It Up To My Home Studio (Windows 7)I Installed Driver Only As I Already Have Ableton Live 8.2.1 It Also Works With Cubase 5 FL Studio 10 Kontakt 5 Reason 5... I Have Atleast 150 GB Of VST Instruments & It Loads & Plays Them All. From Grand Piano's To Basslines Ect.. A Great Piano With Semi Weighted Keys Has The Feel Of A Real Piano.. Good Pitch Bend & Modulation Wheel..
Summary: Used to have a fully-fledged synth but it was too big and heavy, so sold that on ebay and got one of these to replace it. Plus points: - it's light - it's a doddle to use (at least on the Mac) - just plug in the USB and away you go - it's pretty well made - it's not too expensive. Negative points: - the keys are absolutely fine but not particularly well weighted - it's not that cool looking.
Summary: It's a very good keyboard for its price, the velocity sensibility is very precise and it's very light so easy to carry it around, the only thing is that the keys are also very light with no weight whatsoever compared to a piano, still I am very happy and I think it's the perfect tool for home productions and even to gig.
