Lacking

30.07.2014
This keyboard has a great amount of features, it would be nearly perfect if.... the pads weren't as bad as they are, it's really hard to drum consistently. Also, the software which is used to reprogram the presets and select midi messages just does not work properly. I have contacted Roland support and tried different combinations, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, but the best i've ever got is to program just one fader. The sending of sysex data seems to go ok (the program gives no errors) but it only reprograms one slider. Now I am looking for a keyboard that would not be tied to any DAW and could be reprogrammed more reliably (and not reliant on one program).

A keyboard of choice

Riko, 05.06.2011
Description
The A-500 pro is a 4-octave master keyboard with 49 keys, with 45 assignable controls, and a Bundle Software - Mac / PC. It is in the range of Novation 49 SL MKII or M-Audio Axiom Pro.

It is self-powered in USB and does not require external power at this time. It also has MIDI (In and Out), and you can add a sustain pedal.

We find a very good quality of manufacture. The 8 dynamic pads respond perfectly (same quality as a Roland groove box), and the rest of the keyboard is very pleasant to play. The keyboard is the quietest in its class.

At the software level, the keyboard has several factory settings for full DAW control via Mackie HUI protocol: Cubase, Sonar, Logic etc ... The softare bundle includes Rapture LE, a powerful synthesizer and other software In trial version.
