Tiny workhorse
SeekerNL, 05.12.2020
The main reason we chose this one over any of the others was the lack-of-budget that limits so many people. This controller is cheap - REALLY cheap.

For that small price, however, you get basically EVERYTHING you might need to create music in DAWs like Ableton and FL. That makes this machine a "tiny wonder".

Now that we've been using it for a couple of days we've found that it does exactly what you would expect of a controller. It works, straight out-of-the-box. It is immediately recognized by the various DAWs we use here (mainly Ableton & FL).

The keys, albeit small, feel pretty responsive and are easy to play when you want to add chords or a melody. The buttons for pitch-bend & modulation actually work very easily. We have full-sized keyboards here with wheels, but these buttons are surprisingly responsive and do the job perfectly. The size they save on your desk over a wheel is definitely worth it.

The pads take a bit of getting used to as they do have a slight tendency to "double-trigger" upon release. Once you get used to playing them, this goes away.

The knobs feel a bit tighter than I would personally like as my fingers have a small tendency to slip on them. My fingers are good for playing pool, it seems, but not so much for turning these knobs. However, my partner doesn't have any problems with them. YMMV, I guess.

Our choice would have been between the V mini or the V25. The V25 has bigger keys and more pads & knobs. It is also 1.5x the price and it wouldn't have added anything that we needed and is also bigger, meaning it would have taken up more space on our desk (that we don't have).

Overall: Thumbs up! Very satisfied with Alesis for creating this fantastic controller.

Overall a great midi keyboard
IToni, 19.08.2020
Pros: It's just a great midi in every since. Compact, light, built well, has enough features, just overall a great keyboard.
Cons: Lack of "quality" software and not the greatest compatibility with FL

this controller is worse than a toy
theguy, 06.02.2018
ok so i bought this controller to input melodies and cords into a DAW. The first thing you'll notice about thomann this controller is the keys, they are stiff, extremely stiff. in fact playing a moderate tempo piece for a few minutes actually made my hands hurt because the keys need so much force to press down. also you will not be able to do quick notes such as thomann 16ths on it as the keys pop back up too slow because there are no springs in the keys (there action is completely mechanical- the keys are molded together as a single piece of plastic per octave and the pressing action is made by bending the plastic at thomann the top of each key. not only is this a very short term solution (the plastic will soon fatigue and crack) but gives limited motion and speed. This also makes the key velocity useless as the poor action of the keys makes the velocity very uneven (and i thomann did try all the settings)

I can only see this controller being useful for one thing, that is a complete novice pressing long notes one at a time but even for this there are cheaper and better options. avoid at all cost its a waste of money thomann

i will also add that the drum pad take too much force to press and are prone to double trigger randomly.

TLDR : the keys are way to stiff and slow to return to make this worth any money at all. buy something else
