      Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

      Perfect 25 key midi. The velocity has a learning curve. Strike it fast for it to be loud. Strike it slow for it normal or low. Works great with ableton. Plug and play. Great advice from jay at ext 3324.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            This keyboard is fantastic. I was a bit worried at first because the keys are unweighted, but they work just fine. The feel is a lot better than other unweighted keyboards I've tried. The build quality is fantastic. The software was a bit difficult to set up at first (iLok licensing issues), but after that everything worked just fine, but with one problem. There was, with the default settings, a LOT of latency between pressing a key and hearing the output. However, installing an ASIO driver online fixed that.

            For the bedroom producer on a budget, this keyboard can't be beat. The small price is nothing compared to what you get: 25 keys, 8 pads, 4 knobs, 4 buttons, pitch and mod wheels, Xpand!2 software (it has SO MANY sounds to play around with, I use it in my productions a lot), and Ableton Live Lite.

            Decent keyboard, but velocity curve is subpar.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            The keyboard itself is fairly well-mad. The addition of several pads and knobs, which can be assigned to MIDI CC controls, is nice! However, the software keyboard editor always crashes upon trying to edit the velocity curve of the V25, which is game-breaking for especially expressive play.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            Got this in the other day and since setting it up with Studio One and downloading the free Air Xpand2 software that was included with the keyboard, I can say confidently that this was a bad purchase on my part. I have always had great experiences with Alesis and Musician's Friend over the years but this is a bust. Feels cheap, Velocity pads act manic, the velocity curve of the entire board is just bad. I can hit a key twice with the exact same pressure and get two COMPLETELY different volume playbacks. It feels more like a toy than a tool. NOT FOR ME.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            I bought this MIDI controller to have for my home studio. It has useful features such as 2 octave key bed, drum pads, knobs, and buttons. I will say that setting up the knobs and buttons is tricky. The software that comes with it is very plain. You must enter specific midi channel and type of command for each. I still haven't been able to figure out how to set it up like I want it. I use this for recording with Studio One. I just stick with the keys and drum pads. Now, the drum pads are a bit fidgety and sometimes they hit more than once. Also when playing the keys sometimes one will virtually get stuck and will not turn off. Meaning they the physical key is not stuck but it will not tell the note to stop playing thus a continuous note. I don't know if I got a bad product or what.
