Keys feel a bit cheap, which is understandable, sensetivity is good but needs adjustment with software (it's easy and quick), keboard connected to my computer without any problems and my DAW works correctly with it. Good enough for me.

Price effective choice
Home Recorder, 18.11.2018
I have been looking for a lot of midi keyboards that comes with more than 6 pads. My final decision was to buy this Alesis V49. At the beginning, I was quite worried because this product seemed like it has several problems. The two main problems that I saw in others' review are: 1. Squeaky noise made from the keys; 2. Double triggering of the drum pads.
For me, Problem 1 did not happen for me until now, even though I have been using this product for about two months, but I actually faced the second problem on the 7th and the 8th pads. It only happens when I don't press them strongly enough, however, it it really annoying in the point that it makes the sensitivity function useless.

Apart from the well-known problems, this midi keyboard is good within this price range. The keys are full-sized and heavy (not smooth at all, but keep in mind that this keyboard with 8 pads is 98 euros, which is relatively cheap). If I have to recommend a mastering keyboard within a budget of 100euros, I would recommend this product.

Pros:
1. It does its job.
2. The blue light from pads and switches are relaxing and eye candying.

Cons:
1. Some pads have double triggering issues.
2. The keys are not really smooth.

Learning tool
Milan S, 21.02.2020
I use this product to learn to play starting from almost 0 experience.
The build quality is better then I was expecting. You do not need anything better for the beginning.

From the software side it is "plug and play" product so you don't need to install drivers, but... You need to know how to set up software so that you don't have any lag between playing and listening . I must say, this is not the problem because of this keyboard but you should have that in mind when you want to use MIDI controllers on PC.

Works great for my needs
Ivan_H, 29.01.2021
I'm not primarily a keyboard player, but this keyboard fits my needs. I just wish it had one or two faders as opposed to just knobs. The only problem I've experienced is an occasional double note when using the pads.
