A compact, no-hassle MIDI controller for all your music software and hardware needs.

The Alesis Q25 is a 25-note, velocity-sensitive, MIDI keyboard controller with USB and traditional MIDI ports that enable you to connect to almost all MIDI equipment including software and sound modules. Thanks to Pitch and Modulation wheels, backlit Octave Up and Down buttons, and a Volume/Data Entry slider, you can add expression, range, and dynamics to your performances quickly and effortlessly.

Simply connect the Q25 to your computer with the included USB cable and you're immediately ready to begin making music. A single USB cable supplies power and data connection, and you won't even need to install drivers to make the Q25 work. The Q25 is class-compliant, which allows you to skip the programming and start playing instantly.

The Q25 comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite, Alesis Edition software, for performing, recording, and sequencing music right out of the box. The Q25 is also the perfect choice for controlling hardware MIDI devices. Its compact size and portability make it ideal for fitting into existing rigs and then hitting the road. Place it a tier above an existing workstation keyboard and utilize Q25's streamlined layout to maximize your sound and performance options. You can even send Program Changes from the Q25's keys to change programs, patches, and more.

The Q25 pairs compact, essential control with complete MIDI keyboard performance for playing and recording with virtually any MIDI software or hardware.

      I first purchased this controller six months ago when it was on sale, I like it so much that I purchased another one as a backup. This is A no nonsense easy-to-use controller that does not get in the way, it's compact and well-made.

        Comments about Alesis Q25 25-Key Keyboard MIDI Controller:

        My primary DAW is Sonar and it was a simple plug n play connection.

        Mostly a guitar player I did learn to play piano on a Steinway and Hammond C3 so I appreciate the full size keys and weighted touch that adds dynamics but it doesn't have the feel of an actual quality keyboard. Then again I bought it to add fills and some background keys and not to give a concert on it.

        It's small, light and fits in a cubby hole on my desk. It is light enough not to be a hassle moving around yet has enough heft to it that it appears to have some longevity built in to it.

        Overall; It does what it's supposed to do and has the build quality to do that for quite a while.

        P.S. The comment about only coming in black was a joke.

            Comments about Alesis Q25 25-Key Keyboard MIDI Controller:

            There weren't many reviews for the QX25 so I bought this one. In hindsight I wish I bougtht the QX25 because now it's out of stock and more expensive than it was last week.

            (hint hint: Musiciansfriend staff - I'll gladly buy a QX25 for the cost you previously had listed. I know they don't ship until June)

            Bottom line: The Q25 is a good starter on a budget.

                      I'm a guitar player who just plays enough keys to put backing chords and such on my recordings. This unit works great for me because of its simplicity and affordability. Setup was instant and Sonar recognized it immediately. Real keyboard players might need more features and flexibility but if you just want to slap a simple piano, string patch or B-3 vsti on a demo this works great. I can play it fine but cannot speak to the action and such from a real keyboardist's perspective. Mine was used from MF but looked brand new.

                          I really miss my old M-Audio Oxygen. This thing is a good, inexpensive portable controller, but the action is a tad gummy. You have to REALLY work to play 16th notes on a single key. The bounce-back isn't great, but hey, it is an inexpensive little keyboard. Due to the reviews that I'd read that complained of easy breakage, I bought the 2-year protection plan. The unit feels a tad flimsy compared to the Oxygen, but like I said, for the money it does the job just fine.

                              Going to keep this short and sweet. I wasn't considering getting a midi controller til I saw this on sale for black friday. I had been using my mac laptop's keyboard to control my midi sessions and that had major latency issues. So I ordered this and plugged it in and my Logic session recognized it immediately. So easy to use and no latency problems at all. Completely revitalized my desire to make music. Not many features on it, but that reduces some confusion that other midi controllers can cause. It's pressure sensitive and is easy to carry around because of it's small size. Can't say enough about it, great product.
