KeytaRRRR!!
Z.M.G. 19.05.2020
Давно хотел приобрести кейтар, ещё в прошлом веке мечтал о таком.
Итак, плюсы и минусы:
+ лёгкий и компактный
+ беспроводной
+ работа от батареек
+ множество органов управления и они удобны
+ 37 клавиш, всё для одной руки, как и должно быть
- быстро съедает батарейки
- короткий ремень, нужен на 50 см длинее как минимум
- как любая миди-клавиатура, требует настройки для удобной работы и компьютер в придачу

В принципе, работает "из коробки".
Предыдущий вариант по дизайну был круче, по мне так лучше больше клавиш чем фейдеров.
Жаль, нет в белом цвете.

bring it back

first it seemed dorky to buy a keytar in 2021 but this device is a fun addition to any home studio with very easy to use futures :)

it is wireless and it even receives midi from the other room without any delay! i wasn't expecting it to work this good.

overall build quality is adequate, it feels fine and it is light (a good thing)

the usb dongle works without any installation. For further program changes you need to download the alesis application. there was a problem with the installation file for mac os. i will try with a pc when possible.

i would recommend it to home producers who want to have fun running around the studio and play the keytar ! :) i don't think it is reliable enough for live/stage use.

Cool looking toy with load of features

First of all, it is not an instrument for beginners or children. Installing the software takes a lot of time and is very frustrating due to the lack of information. ! small piece of paper and that is it. And ofcourse, without the software no sounds because it is not a plug and play, stand-alone instrument but a midi-controller.
After all is installed the possibilities through the software are limitless. If it can be easily used to perform I wonder. For me it is a nice instrument to play on and explore with.
And it looks cool!

no wireless on Apple Silicon

The instrument is well thought out, very enjoyable to play. It opens up a lot of possibilites for musical theater. Unfortunately the wireless connection does not work on the Mac Mini with M1 processor which we are using for the production.
