    Very versatile, full-size hammer action keyboard. Accompanying software is excellent and works well with other DAWs (I use mine with Ableton)

    Don't like the pads - not enough movement in them. Took a little more effort to set it up as a Logic X controller than expected

    Generally quite good. Haven't had a proper chance to put it though its paced yet. The key bed not as amazing as some had claimed. I'm a pianist so I'm comparing to real pianos which isn't really a fair comparison. However, I was hoping for something more satisfying to play given the top-notch reviews elsewhere. The drum pads require a lot of force to register and so aren't really sensitive enough for general use, I'd say. You have to smash the buttons pretty hard. The regular interface buttons also require a lot of force to actuate which seems unnecessary and emit a rather annoying click sound. That all said, the controller does appear to have a lot of capabilities- I've only scratched the surface. Faders and pots seem good and tactile. I'm sure I'll get used to the overall feel and the quirk of the keyboard.

    Mr Caleb French15th Apr 2021

    absolutely love it, build quality and design is the best I've seen for a controller of this price, the key's feel great - possibly a little heavy but still a great set of keys. if you're looking for a high end midi controller this is the best on the market.
