Good for the price
dannyspotencius 16.11.2020
It has a lot of things you can do with it, but I think it should have a manual with it so you know how to use it properly. Overall it's good.

A great, neat little midi controller with lots of features
the GGG 15.01.2021
I wanted to downsize my midi keyboard and this is a great solution for it as it so neat and compact. I also wanted the functionality of triggering clips playing live and this ticks that box too. An extra little added bonus are the 8 knobs on it which are super handy for controlling sends/FX parameters etc.
It's advertised as an Ableton live controller but I use it in Reaper with the Playtime software from Helgoboss and it works perfectly.
Something to be aware of, the keys are not full size, they are quite small but that's not a big deal for me.
There is something a little off with the level of it though, when I press the top left button it kind of rocks on my desk as if it's not sitting flat which is a little bit weird but it doesn't bother me that much as it only seems to happen on that corner.
For the price I think it is a really good product.

It's a cool entry level controller for Ableton Live.
I went for it mostly because it was compact enough for my momentary needs having knobs, keys and most importantly launch pads on it.
I find it a bit difficult to play the keys they feel a bit rigid and not reacting too sensitively to velocity.
Easy and really straightforward to use.
USB connection being on its side can give headaches.

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.
