It's a low profile keyboard with everything
bogz, 15.01.2020
The good:
- polifonic or chanel pressure aftertouch (easy to set up via the app)
- pressure sensitive everything
- 3 octaves
- low profile
- sexy
- feels like a mac keyboard
- had fun with it
- you can enable shortcuts mode on the key that allows you to switch channels, velocity curves, aftertouch mode (poly or mono) and transpose

The bad:
- feel like a mac keyboard
- aftertouch is sensitive (but can be configured)
- everything is touch sensitive, need to train those fingers
- only cable it comes with is the usb one (others sold separately and have a proprietary soket)
- polyphonic aftertouch is only compatible with some apps (anymoog for ipad for example) so you have to switch often between mono and poly. Fortunately this is easy if you enable key shortcuts using the xkey app

Amazing feel and size
Nike Kid, 01.08.2018
Love this keyboard. It fits right in front of my 13" Macbook Pro.
They keys are full size and are a wonder to play. The only issue is that the aftertouch is not working no matter what you do. So I'd suggest CME to drop the price by ¤50 and remove advertising it as a polyphonic aftertouch keyboard.

Elegante USB Tastatur mit guten Spieleigenschaften
Steve Midge, 28.09.2018
Ich habe mir das CME Xkey 37 LE als Ersatz für mein Doepfer Master-Keyboard angeschafft, da ich dafür in meiner neuen Arbeitsumgebung leider keinen Platzt mehr hatte. Da ich es hauptsächlich für das Einspielen von Softwareinstrumenten bei Demos und Vorproduktionen sowie für Arrangements und Tonsatz benutze, waren 88 Tasten und Hammermechaniken auch nicht unbedingt nötig. Ich bin gewohnt beidhändig zu spielen, daher kam für mich das kleinere Xkey nicht in Frage. Da es sich bei der Xkey Tastatur um eine sehr flache Tastatur mit ähnlichem Hub wie bei einer Mac Tastatur handelt, war ich skeptisch in wie weit Anschlagsdynamik und Aftertouch hier wirklich sinnvoll sind.
Die Praxis hat jedoch gezeigt, dass sich die Xkey 37 Tastatur nach kurzer Eingewöhnung erstaunlich angenehm, dynamisch und präzise spielen lässt. Positiv ist auch die Xkey Plus Software (Download) zu erwähnen mit der man die Velocity Kurve und vieles mehr Maßschneidern kann.
Die Zusatztasten für Modulation etc. funktionieren gut.
Die Verbindung zu Rechner (iMac) und DAW (Logic ProX) klappt ohne jegliche Probleme.
Hinsichtlich der Qualität macht die Tastatur einen sehr wertigen, stabilen Eindruck, außerdem ist sie für 37 Tasten sehr klein, leicht und flach.
Für den beschriebenen Einsatzzweck kann ich sie uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Der etwas höhere Preis scheint mir gerechtfertigt.
