Amazing MIDI keyboard!

Helix Kodon, 31.01.2018
Over the past year, I used this product exclusively for music composition.
It is very sturdy and comfortable to use. Since it's much flatter than a regular piano keyboard, playing it takes a while to get used to but it becomes very enjoyable with the new dimensions of playing possibilities. At max sensitivity, it can be difficult to play quickly without making micro-tonal mistakes, but the 3 faders on the left can be set to the desired amount of sensitivity for pitch, length-wise modulation (i.e sliding up and down a single key to change the timbre), and aftertouch sensitivity. You can also switch the faders to MIDI mode and assign any MIDI CC to the faders and touchpad (one CC for each axis).
The synthesizer software that comes with the Seaboard, "Equator" is worth half the price. It comes with hundreds of amazing-sounding presets (from synths to acoustic samples to sound design) and is completely modular. You can alter any of the parameters and have them be modulated by others to create your own unique sounds and instruments.
The Seaboard's primary features are mainly to be used with Equator, but with some audio programming you can get the sensors to work with things like Kontakt. Note that you can also set it to run in single MIDI channel mode which makes it function like a standard MIDI keyboard.
There are only two reasons why I gave 4 stars instead of 5:
1) When in single MIDI channel mode you have to manually select the channel through provided software instead of being able to push a button to do so. This wastes a bit of time when dealing with multi-channel routed virtual instruments.
2) After 11 months my Seaboard began malfunctioning (constantly switching on and off) and I had to get a replacement.
Overall, great product and software. I just hope my new one will last longer.

for composers/designers

RemmyW, 13.01.2018
extremely dynamic and flexible, it can be a very expressive tool.Very different from an original midi controller.

Cons:
Not compatible with many virtual instruments(probably cause its MPE) and it can be hard to mix and edit depending on your DAW
It's practically a new instrument, needs some practise to adjust (on it and its software-Equator) if you want to take the most out of it
