About Me Experienced

Comments about Alesis VI49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

This controller quit sending a MIDI signal after only a year and a half.
During that year it did not travel, it only sat in my studio!

Comments about Alesis VI49 49-Key Keyboard Controller:

Okay, so when I used this, it was phenomenal. Great quality, felt good, nice keyboard. This went on for just under 2 years, when it just stopped. Now, the USB port has mysteriously changed sizes and it doesn't fit, and I don't know what's wrong, but it d'ain't've worked now. Just get a warranty, cause you have a good chance of using said warranty.
