Small midi keyboard for quick sessions with the computer
MrKorg, 22.02.2014
I needed a small midi keyboard for notation puposes on the computer. So I didn't want to use a heavy 88-key mothership and decided to order the Q49 midi keyboard from Alesis. Its very basic with its 49 normal sized keys and a pitch and modulation wheel. After connecting it via USB or Midi it's directly usable in your software. And thanks to Alesis for the standard midi output! This is quite useful, because sometimes I like to connect the Q49 to other keyboards, and most of them don't support class compliant usb midi connections.

The keys theirselves are very easy weighted, even for synth-like keys. It needs some minutes, till you feel comforable on the Q49. Furthermore the space between the keys is sometimes a bit different. It's not a huge problem, but the building quality ain't the best. But it's good enough to work with the keyboard (and that's said by a player with more than 15 years of experience), so don't worry to much about this.

The changing of midi parameters is a bit inconvinient. You have to choose the parameter with a hit on a key (the parameters are listed above the keys) and then you can change the value with a slider, which is above the two wheels. But if you are a user like me, who doesn't really change parameters often, thats not a problem. I just use the Q49 as a input-keyboard. And for this job the Q49 from Alesis is absolutely advisable.

Probably ok... I didn't like it
Gurteen, 02.07.2019
Never got to grips with it because could not get latency right, delay in sound was too much to cope with ( even with good computer) so, no, not for me.
