Gets the job done

By Photocat37

from Baytown, TX

I bought this mainly to sequence drum and keyboard parts in Cakewalk Sonar. It's pretty solid but I wouldn't want to drop it on a hard floor and I definitely wouldn't suggest using it for live gigs. Windows Vista recognized it right away and loaded the drivers no problem. Cakewalk also didn't have any problems. I haven't tried any of the included software that came with it so I can't comment on that part. The one negative that stands out for me is that the key noise is loud. Unless I have my headphone really loud I can hear it to the point of it being distracting. Other than that it does what it's supposed to. Overall it's a good controller if all you want is a basic controller. No bells and whistles here, but that's what I wanted.

Perfect for Garageband!

By JEFFR0

from Chi-town, IL

I base my ratings on the price. I'm a guitarist, I never really played keyboard, I just got it to use with Garageband on my macbook pro. I just plugged it in, and it works perfectly for playing the myraid of instruments on Garageband! I would recommend this to anyone who needs an entry level usb/midi keyboard!

Not bad, not great.

By Chris-ll8nq

from Port Hope, ON

Overall, this is a great keyboard if you're short on money or space. It's pretty responsive and has nice light synth action. The "thumbstick" pitchbender is cool. The 10-octave range is a nice upgrade.Here's some things to be aware of:-- The keys bend a little if you play really hard-- Keep the manual handy if you're going to use pedals.-- The pedal jacks are 3.5mm instead of 1/4"-- CME's support is the worst I know. They have a user forum, which apparently they only check a few times a year.-- It's USB powered, so it doesn't come with a power adapter - so be prepared to go looking for one if you're using this over MIDI and not USB.The software this comes with stinks. The Waldorf Edition won't install. The only good one is Analog Factory, which gives you 200 presets and limited editing of them. If you have a VST host there are lots of great freeware synths out there!

Unbeatable in it's Price Range

By Vvildcard

from Oregon

In short, this controller is far and away better than anything else in the price range. I compared it to M-Audio keyboards and it felt much better in terms of quality and key-feel. The keys are spring-weighted but they felt much closer to real weighted keys than the others I compared it to.If you're looking for a mid-sized MIDI controller to just get started on, look no further!Worked flawlessly with XP and Vista (note: see the documentation on how to switch between the two).
