Good concept, needs improvement

Thomm, 04.03.2015

Sleek purist product Design & Perfect Layout
16 sequence / drum pads have good response
rotary knobs (stop end to end) feel quite robust
good weight to keys

-
Poor construction feel
Buttons feel poor and have a very cheap 'click'
Keys have some movement and straight out of the box don't appear to be constructed properly as they aren't perfectly in line (this was on my copy anyway)


Overall it feels like the transition from the drawing board to producing the final product was rushed / left incomplete.


By shipping with Ableton lite I would assume Ableton fully supports it. I found this not to be the case and perhaps should have researched this deeper before purchasing. Be prepared for a long tedious procedure of assigning all of its thousands of control combinations to each feature and then getting lost as to whats what.

My personal opinion is go for it if you don't mind endless customization and can keep track of all the midi assigns then this is for you.

its not for me - i am returning and looking for a simpler alternative with auto mapping or full support by the major software kits

But the processing ...

mortn, 22.10.2017
I bought the keyboard a little over a year ago when I was looking for a cheap but good midi controller for my DAW (StudioOne).
Impressions: The keyboard works well, installation was easy and looks and features are ok in my opinion, if not stunning.
Disadvantages: After a few months, the USB port had a loose connection. Granted, I like to carry my device back and forth, which can lead anywhere to bump or get stuck. Nevertheless, the processing of the port is miserable and an obvious breaking point.
So device sent back and arrived through the great service of thomann after a few weeks again functional.
Although I've paid close attention to this since then, the problem is now back, so I have no choice but to buy a matching power supply and use it via a Midi cable. For me a very annoying matter.
Conclusion: who knows what he gets involved in here can have fun. Due to the mediocre processing of the pads and controls and the poor processing of the ports but rather no recommendation from me.
