Short review of AKAI MPK 225

JML., 07.11.2014
I am new to using music hardware and the only thing I ever bought before was small headphones, so I can't really compare this product to others. But so far I am very satisfied with it - it seem to be good quality build and does the job. So far the only things I find short of perfect are:
- The USB cable sticking out the back, which is making it somewhat clumsy to have the keyboard together with my laptop on a small table. If the connectors were sideways or sunk into the body more it would be better.
- Some of the menu controls (in particular, confirming edits for a preset) seem a little bit unintuitive - press 'preset' instead of the otherwise used 'enter' button to confirm edits confused me and I eventually had to look into the manual.
- Fairly small keyboard range. But that's by design.
These are small details and I would recommend this keyboard for anyone in need of a few keys for composing music in a small space. The keyboard is not very bulky and fairly light in terms of weight.

Overall good buy. Except for Thomann delivery - it took weeks of waiting for this package to arrive, because I didn't notice that it was not in stock when I ordered it, and then it was further postponed. I wasn't happy about that and was getting close to cancelling the order, but it did turn up eventually and I think it was worth the wait.
