Does exactly what we wanted

F., 24.01.2016
We bought this as our Bass player was going to be unexpectedly away for a gig. We didn't want to spend hours with a Dep. In this band I play Sax, but when our Pianist was soloing she wanted some support. Initially we were going to put it through a midi voice box, but we discoverd that our stage piano gave us access to it's internal GM voices, so using the midi out from the Swissonic we were able to patch into the Bass on the stage piano, which eliminated some wires and power supplies and also made the transition from Piano/Bass split to Swissonic Bass and Piano more seamless. (We used Piano and Bass split keyboard on the SP) I was able to play Bass with my left hand. How did it go? Great. The unit itself is light, but rested nicely on a stand. We used a USB plug to power it up, and the midi out socket into the keyboard. The instruction book is quite explicit, but not really needed as the set up is quite logical. Occasionaly hitting a note did not produce a response, we suspect due to operator error. The set up out of the box was fine and selecting the right program was easy. (Starts at 0, not 1.) We liked the Aluminium case which should help with life on the road and all in all we are really pleased with what we got. The keys are quite light in operation which meant I didn't get fatigued while playing around 40 Bass lines. I spent quite a time trying to find a keyboard with proper midi, not USB, and this has both. The full size keys also make it easy for me to play without having to concentrate too hard. I have large fingers so small keys don't really work well for me.
What would I prefer? Well if I could find one a 25 key with weighted keys, but haven't been able to source that so dream on! Oh and a Midi in/through would be nice. I haven't looked at the software so can't comment, we have plenty of that in other formats so probably won't look at it.
Delivery, despite the efforts of the French postal system to delay it, was as usual from Thomann, fast.

Top for small money

Georg8189, 02.03.2016
I needed a small MIDI keyboard to control my Moog Minitaur via a Doepfer DarkTime sequencer.

The Swissonic Easy Key 25 now does this service well.

The DarkTime is synchronized by a Roland MC-909 with Midi-Clock, and via a Midi-Merger, the Swissonic controls the pitch of the sequence. This worked great straight away, although I am really not an "MIdi-expert".

The two octaves range completely for my purposes, so you can adjust the octaves from -3 to +3. The "Transpose function" I do not use.

Connection USB Power supply: with the charger of my old iPhone functions perfectly or can be synonymous electricity from the MacBook without problems.

The device is very solid, the aluminum housing looks much better than any plastic part, it is comparatively heavy, which has a positive effect on the stability. It does NOT wobble on flat surfaces. The gray plastic sides do not look sooooo good now, but at the cheap price is negligible.
I am trying to make wood side panels, which would make a real "gem" from it, as the haptics and the behavior of the keyboard feel subjectively of the game feel better than the keyboard of the Roland Gaia SH-1 or even the NordLead A1. Somehow between NordLead and Moog Sub37 which has the best keyboard of my devices ... So from the game feeling very pleasant. Such judgments, however, are subjective and may be felt differently.

However, the small wheels for pitch bend and modulation do not reach this level. They feel the price class accordingly. They work. OK then.

Since I only play with hardware synths I can not say to the qualities for software instruments and the accompanying DVD.
Only so much: I've only out of curiosity the Swissonic with USB cable connected to my MacBook, Logic opened, midi track generated and see ... dingelingklingelklang ... it worked immediately and a latency was not noticeable. (I have now found "the holiday solution") Super!

Conclusion:
+ High quality feel
+ Robust
+ MIDI OUT (!)
+ Housing, stability
+ Simple, clear design
+ German, well understandable manual
+ Price

- gray plastic on the sides
- Made in China (like the other price - so a compromise. Other European manufacturers also make it there ...)
