Good Hardware, Poor Integration
Ahmed Aziz, 06.06.2020
This is a really well built, nice-feeling midi controller, but it integrates poorly (at least on my Windows set up). When it works, it really puts you in command of the NI instruments you own and is an upgrade to the experience of working with them.

However, too often it just doesn't work. Most times it is not recognized by the Komplete software, or at least not fully (knobs function but keyboard doesn't). I read posts saying to activate it in Midi settings in the Komplete standalone to fix this problem, but I have to do that every time and even then sometimes it just will not activate.

So overall, I cannot recommend it. The time I've lost trying to get it to work is measured in hours, not minutes, and when I have pressing deadlines this is an inspiration killer and stress inducer.

Not as good as promised
Jay Stills, 10.02.2021
The keybed feels really good, well built, maybe slightly too large.

CONS:
-Also the knobs can't be disabled so during mixing, if I'm reaching to something behind the keyboard, on the desk, I bump into the knobs and change value..!!
-DAW transport controls are not responsive most of the time. I'm using Ableton and it really the keyboard really struggles to connect. (while MIDI works perfectly)
I try to change instance and control the DAW, but it's not working at all. Sometimes it is, and it's a breeze, but then it's not reliable.

Selling it to buy something better!

Brilliant
Sam Cheesmore , 06.11.2018
Have been looking for a good quality 49 key midi keyboard for some time, chose this one because of the included NI software. Extremely pleased with with the build quality of the product, absolute unit!
getting to grips with the ins and outs of utilising it fully can be tricky at times but absolutely worth it when it works.
For the money, this is easily the best quality and value-for-money 49 key midi keyboard I've encountered!

This is the best master keyboard I had so far
Pavel Doronin, 06.03.2021
This is my fifth MIDI keyboard and the best one so far. The feeling of keys and knobs is just great, a pure pleasure to play.

I would outline only one thing in the cons section: USB cable. I had to get a USB-B to USB-C cable and it did not fit well because the hole for the USB-B port is too small (Maschine has the same problem). So I ordered another cable and meanwhile I am using an adapter. I would prefer to have a choice what version of the USB cable I need.
