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.

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.

                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.

                              The Q25 is very narrow, and the ONLY full-size keyboard that fits between my QWERTY computer keyboard and monitor in my project studio. It does not have the greatest feel, but is excellent for my purposes, to audition a sound or perhaps lay in a bass part.

                              USB Class compliant - plug it in and it works. NO driver! A good price and it's just fine. - joel

                                This is a great little midi controller for the price. It's simple and easy to use and setting it up is a snap, just plug it in, of course you'll have to do like I did and go to your settings and add it as a midi controller it's just that simple. It also don't take up a lot of work space. The keys play really well considering the price.....

                                    It's going to take some time to get acquainted with the Q25, but I like what I've seen so far. Plug and play, takes up very little space, easily recognized by my DAW... an excellent fit for someone who's a guitarist first and foremost, but who likes to add coloring with a variety of virtual instruments.
