This is not a piano keyboard
RobLogic, 22.10.2018
IMO this product does not make sense because it is commercialized as a piano style 88 notes keyboard but it does not serve this purpose. The keyboard is beautiful and stylish, but as soon as I connect it to Pianoteq and Keyscape I realized that you can not play Piano nor Pianissimo. It only does Forte and Fortissimo. The sensitivity of each note is too hard and is also not precise at all.
Even changing the several velocity curves the keyboard has, and setting the velocity curves as slow in Pianoteq I was not able to produce any decent piano sounds. The result is a very robotic and unexpressive sound (from the libraries obviously). This is not a keyboard for pianists. This may serve as a daw controller and to trigger samples etc. or as as decorative keyboard, because it?s very beautiful and looks well built, but not to play expressive instruments that require precise sensitivity just like any high end piano software like Pianoteq or piano libraries.
So if you are a decent pianist and if you want a 88 note keyboard to play piano just save yourself the hassle to order because you will definitely end up returning it.

Bon rapport poids/prix mais à manier délicatement
pia51, 11.08.2019
Je cherchais juste un clavier midi pour la scène, c'est à dire déclencher des notes et peser le minimum.. c'est tout ce qu'il fait. Par contre à manier délicatement car le bloc relié au clavier par deux petites vis minables ne tient que par miracle... Logiciel pour programmer les contrôles vraiment nul (courbes de vélocité à pleurer) et tous les boutons en deviennent juste inutiles (enfin, c'est sûrement possible, mais j'ai renoncé avec le soft fourni tellement il est "intuitif"). Mode d'emploi encore plus minable que le soft.

klein, fein, günstig!
Cormyc, 12.01.2019
Da meine Instrumente über 30 Jahre alt sind, war ich auf der Suche nach einem neuen 88er Keyboard für mein Homestudio.
Bei einer Tiefe von unter 20cm passt das Icon iKeyboard 8X zum Einspielen hervorragend auf dem Schreibtisch ohne das es stört.

Da ich kein Pianist bin, sind meine Anforderungen nicht hoch...
...wobei es aber klar sein sollte, das man bei einem Preis von 200? KEINE klassische Klaviertastatur zu erwarten hat!


Positiv
- Preis


Negativ (Nachtrag März 2019)
Nach einiger Zeit des Spielens folgendes Resume
- Die Befestigung der Klaviatur hat leider zu viel spiel.
Sobald die Tasten kräftig gedrückt werden knackte es im oberen Bereich der Federaufhängung und vermittelt teilweise sogar das Gefühl als wenn man die Klaviatur "aushebeln" würde und gleich in der Hand hat...
Bedingt durch die Hebelkraft tritt dies bei den weissen Tasten stärker auf als bei den schwarzen.
Harte Anschläg sollte man bei diesem Keyboard vermeiden.


Stolperfalle:
Auch wenn es für andere möglicherweise logisch erscheint,
folgender kleiner Hinweis:
Ich hatte USB und(!) MIDI angeschlossen, was natürlich zu einer Doppelmodulation führte.
Entweder im Setting ändern oder aber die MIDI Leitung ziehen. ;-)
