Great way into Ableton
imranino, 18.04.2020
A great way to learn Ableton! I mostly use this to trigger clips with Ableton, and it's been a huge revelation to me! My favourite way of being creative.

The keyboard is the same as other Akai keyboards - personally I find it hard to play phrases or chords as I mostly play piano with weighted keys, so I'm mostly restricted to playing simple phrases/chords.

A tiny criticism is that the USB out is on the side- sometimes I want the unit to be directly next to another unit or my laptop, and having a USB cable in the way can be annoying.

Simple but really versatile
ikertinker, 13.04.2020
You can really get anything done with it.

A remarkable pro could be the bunch of launcher buttons at the top-left, for ableton.

The knobs at the right-top could be arranged to modulate any parameter, such as pitch modulation, volume, etc.

Apart from that, very lightweight and portable, and really simple to use.

Great for the price
01.02.2017
I use this controller as a mixer and midi trigger for my daw, triggering multiple synths and also adjusting various parameters with it.

this little keyboard is great for th eprice and also the easy and quick integration with your daw (no drivers required )
me personally using ableton live

being lightweight it is very easy to carry around and usually fits within your average bag

overall would not change it with anything for my day to day daw needs !
