This is a no nonsense unit of fairly rugged construction. The 37 note keyboard goes from F to F which is ideal. As a church organist I am used to playing with both hands close together unlike piano players who spread themselves on the keyboard. I am using it to trigger Garittan sounds of orchestral instruments into Windows 7, 64 bit. There were no problems with the installation, I just had to tick the right box under tools / preferences in the Aria player. There is a tiny delay due to latency but not enough to interfere with playing. The touch sensitivity could be better, I have to hammer the piano sounds but as I mainly use organ it is not a problem for me. The only controls are the up / down octave buttons which give at least 2 up and 2 down. Lack of any midi channel buttons is a nuisance but for the price this is an excellent unit.

Cheap but good looking

The Garagekey keyboard is ok for the price. It does the basic stuff, send Midi notes (with velocity). It does not have any features - just the keys and octave UP/DOWN buttons. It looks good. However, the build is cheap. On mine the first key from the left was bit downward.
I used it with Windows 7 and had no problems with the drivers. A bit annoying was that you have to reconnect it everytime you start your computer.
Overall, for the price it is a good buy. I recommended it. It does all the basic stuff with velocity. However, if you need serious piano play find something else.
