All good!

06.02.2017
I used this keyboard on over 100 gigs and in project studio and I'm very impressed!


They Fatar keybed is simply amazing! Might not be the most realistic hammer action keyboard I've played, but the quality, action, response and comfort is one of the best I've ever had experience with.

Controls are very sturdy and solid, no problem with response and they give that bit of resistance to avoid unwanted movement. I did lose one knob, due to thread of faulty keyboard cover hooking it and pulling it out, but I wrote Arturia support and got an envelope with 4 free spare knobs within 3 days!

The entire keyboard is also very light and compact. Not being a great fan of having pitch and mod wheels above the keybed, but after being able to fit it on some very tight stages on pub gigs I must say it's a huge advantage and something I got used to.

I've played on some wobbly stages, no unwanted MIDI messages, very solid.

The single, biggest issue is the imprint quality, on one of the firsts gigs I've had with it a few drops of sweat literally dissolved and smudged transport control labels, the frame and a bit of main logo on the panel. Shame as the keyboard looks very good!

The drum pads are one of the hardest, plastic-feel I've played. My experience was limited to more rubber feel of M-Audio Trigger Finger and Novation Impulse 61. Their response and layout is great though.

Programming, connection and included software are easy to use, stable and of great quality. Programming the keyboard through the buttons on the fly is very easy, though some more advanced stuff takes a while to get used to. I'm not really a fan of using the Analog Lab, so can't say much about integration.

Additional thing, like the laptop shelf are very handy. The shelf fits my 19" MSI GE70 without any issues. saving me space for any laptop holders etc.

Got the keyboard bundled with MTA software, huge discount on V3 Collection, Pianoteq Stage and UVI Grand Piano, which is more that I could ever ask for!

I used and abused it for a long time and had no technical issues whatsoever.

I would really recommend it and plan to use it for a long time to come!

Great controller

Anthony4841, 23.06.2015
I love this controller, it's a great keyboard and I use it for live work with a band every week. It has some useful features including transpose, presets, aftertouch and the best key action I've played on a controller. Another bonus is the comparatively light weight and USB powered (even from iPad or iPhone). The package also contains a well thought out laptop stand and music rest which are removable.

There are a few quirks that I live with, I've noticed the screen printing is wearing off and the build quality could be better - the unit had been assembled with a screw through the ribbon cable! The layout of buttons and sliders could also have been better thought out - I prefer the buttons to be under the sliders.

Also, there's a few firmware gotchas which for the most part have been fixed in the latest firmware but still room for improvement. For instance, the transpose menu will exit (even whilst adjusting) if the expression pedal is moved, and the last-used preset is not recalled at power up so each time the keyboard is powered on, you must remember to recall the relevant preset. Arturia do seem a little slow in firmware updates and fixes.

In truth finding the perfect controller is like looking for the holy grail. In the meantime, this will do fine!
