  • Excerpt: I am a keyboard player and I needed a midi controller to trigger tracks and clicks off my daw software live . This works perfectly , the size is great and it is durable . The pads feel nice and the knobs are cool. Also B&H shipped it fast and it came safe and in a secure package.

  • Excerpt: I currently own a number of Pioneer DJ equipment and primarily play on Serato DJ. With the Pioneer DDJ-S1 there is no sampler capability as it was built for Itch. I wanted to find a unit that would allow me to add a sampler function.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

  • Excerpt: I bought this in order to augment MIDI drums with fills that I would do myself. I use Sonar Cakewalk with a Tascam FW-1082 and had concerns how it would integrate via USB, but I had no troubles at all. For the hardware I give it 5 stars - it is solid and I believe it will last.

  • Pros: Responsive, Sensitive
