A61 first glance
Moonshine, 22.04.2020
So after few hours fiddling with this keyboard
The build quality is great and key action is a little bit on the heavy side, which is good.
The sound library that comes with it is really good, especially the Gentleman piano and Scarbee electric piano, high quality.
Not to mention the tons of other sounds.
However there are some drawbacks.
Usability is not great.
The data screen is very small and not very helpful.
It will take you some time to learn all the functions because this product is not very intuitive.
If you want better usability take a look at the S series which comes with big color screens.
There is no option to set the global velocity curve and no way to set global volume from the keyboard.
Both these features are usually taken for granted and you may be disappointed when you find out they don't exist in the A series.
To sum up, good value for money.

Top keys, but lacking features
Moai, 15.11.2019
I bought this piano after comparing all 61 keys midi controllers, and this seems to be the one with the best integration in Studio One.

Best:
The good point are the keys and seamless integration with all Komplete products I have. It reminds me the feeling of a real piano, it's no so plasticky and looks like a premium unit. Another good point are all transportation buttons that it has, useful for DAW and also for the Komplete Kontrol plugin. I can control some basic features from Studio One which is what I was looking for. Also, I need no mapping at all, I love plug and play things without messing around with configuration files and so on :)

Cons:
It's quite heavy and bulky, so you need a lot of space for it. The clicking sound from the buttons is really loud, really. The little screen is useful but it should be at least bigger or similar to the layout of the S series MK1.
No aftertouch, which in 2019 should be a standard in this kind of hardware.
I think this type of units can have more controls, as it has two big empty frames on each side, but it happens the same with the S series.

In sum, for this price it's an affordable piano that can do almost all that I need, so I'm happy with it and I hope it lasts so many years.

The action is pretty decent
Semiao, 30.12.2019
I bought this to use together with presonus 4.6 professional since there was a recent update that enabled you to use the various features to improve the workflow with the DAW. I must say that I am pleased with the action although it is light, the constructions is solid and slick. The VSTs that come with the MIDI are an excellent addition! My only problem is the amount of programs you need to install in order to make everything work together, its a bit of a pain to make it setup correctly, but once you do it feels great!

Great for the aspiring producer!
Reinier Klaassen, 29.11.2020
I've been a studio guitarist for more than 5 years, but I wanted to add something else to my musical skillset. I was looking at a more affordable keyboard, but when I saw the software bundle that comes with this keyboard, I was sold. The keys themselves feel absolutely fantastic, especially for the price, and with over 500 euros worth of software included it's great for producers who are into sound design, and want to work without anything hampering their creativity.
