Best cheap 88note controller by far

I you use any Arturia software, this keyboard is perfect.
The build quality is good. The feel of the keys is OK.
The Essential 88BE stands up to anything I can throw at it.
I compose for TV 8 hours a day, and I thump keyboards.
Slightly more challenging was getting it to talk to Logic PRO X properly. It does work though, and the faders can control the volume sliders in Logic's mixer which is a huge bonus.
I also have a Arturia KeyLab 88 MK1 but the paint came of the casing where I used the mod wheel too often. The quality control on this keyboard seems to be much improved.
Very satisfied.
