Great MIDI Keyboard Controller for home studio

05.05.2016
Using this keyboard for producing music in my home studio, very comfortable, good-looking, solid instrument. Keys feel very pleasant when you touch it, similar to the real piano keys.

Comes with powerful software: Ableton Live Lite, Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech, SONiVOX Twist 2.0, SONiVOX Eighty-Eight Ensemble and the Akai Pro MPC Essentials, but I'm using it with Logic Pro.

Special thanks to Thomann GmbH, Your delivery and notification services work great, it took only 5 days to deliver parcel to Estonia, You did it with real German precision, quality and responsibility. It was my first experience of using Your store, and I can say, that this is the best service among online stores I've ever met.

Excellent Controller missing one small feature

24.08.2015
I have used many brands controllers over the last 20 odd years and this is my favourite so far. SO easy to configure and plenty of controller types To be able to configured! The keys have a decent "feel"; not ideal for "piano" playing but a good compormise for a smooth synth action. The only feature missing for me is on-screen visibility of the controller value as you're moving it. I do a lot of "live mixing" and tweaking and when sweeping mids, I cannot see where the frequency and/or gain levels are as these are endless rotary encoders. A small issue for me as I have my laptop offstage (don't like the look of seeing computers on stage) so really miss this BUT I would take all the functions and configuration possibilities over that feature (which you see in Axiom type controllers. A solid 9/10 from me
