More than expected!!

Capkeyed66, 09.01.2018
I was originally looking at stage pianos, for home use and becouse of budget, I went for this keyboard controller instead. So glad that I did!! So far I have been impressed. It is early days, and I'm on a learning curve, which I am enjoying.

Pros:
Keys so far have not been a problem.
The software Bitwig 8 track a bonus, not sure if I will use it though, as I have Mixcraft.

Construction , solid, all of the faders etc , not flimsy with a straightforward, layout.

Cons:

For now, while I?m getting to grips with the controller, I would have liked to have had the written keys information which is on the controller, to be more obvious and stand out.

Although minor, the on/off switch is on the back of the keyboard, would have been better to be on the keyboard instead.

As always thomann support and excellent service, has been fantastic. Packaging as expected. Delivery on time, Impressive.

Perfect for songwriting

hermonassa, 19.08.2017
I'm using it as a multi-purpose midi controller for everything I can't record with my guitar. E.g. creating midi drum tracks, string sections and piano riffs.

Pros
The action and feel of the keys. At this price point, it's hard to find something better. Seems to be well built, have had no issues so far. Easy to use as well.

Cons
None

All in all, it's an excellent songwriting and recording tool for your home studio.
