Summary: This keyboard has so much good stuff going for it i don't even know where to start. The knobs and faders feel great and map to anything without much hassle at all, I've used them in Sonar, Reason, FLStudio, and Ableton inside of many many different VST synths, effects, and on every built in function that i could find, and every time they map easily, feel great and work extremely well! They keyboard is a little squishy feeling.
Summary: Fantastic product, at a great price, allows someone just getting into electronic music production to have a flexible midi keyboard without spending hundreds of dollars. Works -PERFECTLY- on my windows 7 64-bit pc, and using the most recent version of Ableton. buy it buy it buy it! as a newbie to electronic music production i recommend it to anyone starting out!
Summary: First let me state that I'm an amateur music producer who has mixed and produced only a few remixes but is striving to become a much better producer. With that said I was looking for a midi controller/keyboard to add to my arsenal. This midi keyboard is everything I wanted it to be. All the knobs and sliders and wheels have great tactile feeling and the keyboard is semi weighted so you have more feeling in your playing as well.
Summary: When I was browsing for midi keyboards, I was looking for something not too expensive, and also something transportable. This keyboard was exactly what I wanted. I had read complaints about latency issues and delay between key press and response from software, but I had no such problem. If you encounter this problem, it is most likely your drivers that are the cause. Use ASIO4All drivers, and there should be little to no latency.
Summary: I just got Garage Band on the Mac, and decided to pick up keyboard again after a lapse of many years. Just plugged it in and it worked. More functionality than I need--maybe more than I will ever need--but not expensive.
Summary: Initially I spent a lot of time debating between the Akai and the Axiom keyboard controllers. After visiting my local music shop and being able to touch the keys to see how they felt, I immediately ruled out the Akai. The keys on the Akai are very stiff, and spring back forcefully. Nothing like a real keyboard. The Axiom on the other hand had much better feeling keys.
Summary: this is a very good keyboard you have everything you need when recording if you can figure out how too map the control with your specific DAW you have a very nice keyboard for a resonable price
Summary: Best keyboard i've ever owned. Set-up with FL Studio 9 wasn't the most fun process because i don't enjoy manuals. However, after reading a small amount of the manual i programmed everything i want to do with this controller and i couldn't be more happy.
