Good on paper - not in practice

VladTheInstaller, 22.04.2014
Positive:
* Nice to look at with a good finish and aesthetic design. (EDIT: This finish peels and starts looking grubby after a short time)
* Chock full of features, including the various controls.
* Controls illuminate when activated.
* In depth MIDI control editor allows you to select exactly what each controller and pad does.

Negative:
* Pitch and mod ribbons often jump around irregularly; Not as smooth as it should be.
* Pads require a very firm touch to register input.
* The casing is slightly bent so that one of the rubber feet under the corners is always off the table top - This means when I play it it makes a loud clacking sound as it connects with the table top.
* The keys require a hard touch for regular play as the MIDI velocity data seems to be an odd logarithmic pattern. In other words, a light touch gives a light velocity, but so does a moderate touch - with a heavy touch giving an appropriate velocity.
* MIDI control editor software is often temperamental.
* Master encoder doesn't seem to do anything meaningful even with control editing.

Conclusion:
I cannot recommend this product due to its myriad issues. It does, however have ALL the bells and whistles, which is what I need.

Feedback for use with Ableton Live. The Controller itself was of surprisingly decent quality for the price and the build itself was decent. However, i encountered problems on the software side. The software which was supposed to map the controls would not work properly nor update the firmware of the device. There is a video on youtube describing how the software is supposed to work with Ableton live but that was of very little use since the software was not able to run -as described in the video - at the same time with Ableton (once the M25 was connected and recognized by Ableton the software would give a connection error).

As such, the only chance is to map directly in Ableton, but that is such a killjoy as whenever you want to reassign channels you need to close Ableton and open the software. I was not able to find a working version of the software.

In conclusion, even though the M25 would have been a highly usable device for me in terms of functionality, I had to return the device because of the software issues.
