Simple but good

Videographer, 25.07.2017
I'm using it to make background music/sound for various videos + for fun also.

Since it has to be used with computer(maybe also with ipad(there is a place to put one on it) but i haven't read the manual) there aren't a lot controls on it. But it is still playable and easy to set up.

Pros:
Weight- not a lot, so it's easy to transport;
Price- pretty low;
Size- smaller than average 61key synt;
Keys are touch sensitive;
On MAC you can just plug and play using Garage Band.

Cons:
Keys are light(as in weight)- must get use to it;
Pan control is rotary switch- slider would have been nicer;
More controls would been nicer;
If it's meant to be used with ipad, there are no 5V pass trough.

Other thoughts:
I think i want more keys now :)

It's a simple MIDI controler, But it does what it is meant for.
The keys have a good feel, and are enough, you wont need more that 61.
The buid quality is nice, Is not comparable with the latest spacecraft, but is close. For the price you can't ask for more.
The design is pretty good also, it looks good in the studio.
The fact that it is usb powered is great, it means that, when you are using it conected to the computer, you only need one single cable, the usb cable. I also have a Midi out port, that you can use to control other Midi devices, such as samplers, drum machines, etc.
