Incredible midi keyboard

blueveek, 12.10.2018
I was looking for something that can provide me with just a bit more range than my go-to 25 key midi controller. The result is I think I've found the perfect all around keyboard.

If you're not overly concerned with having grand master piano-like range, 76 and 88 keys would seem like overkill. And if you're also trying to save as much space as possible but still be able regularly to go beyond 2 octaves range, the 49 keys of this Alesis is the absolute sweet spot.

Beyond simple keys, you also get 8 programmable pads, 2 pitch and expression wheels, 4 knobs for your various macros, 2 pre-programmed octave-up and octave-down buttons, and a collection of 4 extra programmable midi buttons. Of course, it can be USB-powered as well.

The customisability is what you'd expect: perfect if you're not a one-man electro band. If you intend to control everything from one place (drums, synths, etc.), there's much better options out there with more pads, more knobs, more buttons. But if you're concerned with just playing keys, occasionally control one or two extra instruments or tracks, it's fantastic.

In summary, get this keyboard if you're trying to save space, want more than 2 octaves range but don't need a grand master piano, and still be able to control your DAW or a few other instruments or tracks via MIDI.

Got what I expected more or less (less)

28.04.2015
My expectations for this keyboard weren't high to begin with but it managed to let me down regardless. The velocity sensitivity is useless. It can be edited to be useable on the lower sensitivity levels but even then it seemingly randomly jumps above treshold to play max velocity.

The keys are squeaky and in a loud way. You can imagine how annoying it can get. The knobs and slider work flawlessly. The pads seem very high quality. If I could, I would just have the pad section and remove the keys.

So my main use for this keyboard has been practising finger positions for different chord structures. For this the keyboard is okay. Also using the knobs to input automation and they've been working fine.

This keyboard looks good. I'll give it that much. It's black, it has shiny blue LED lights. The countour on the keys is pleasant to eye. This keyboard is nice decoration for your bedroom studio. And if you play loud enough your guests will barely hear the squeaking of the keys.

Oh yeah since my goal was to learn finger positions, I just completely disabled the velocity sensitivity which is what you should expect to do if you get this board.
