    I've only had this unit for about a week, but I am pleased with it. Its more compact than a looks in the pictures, and it feels really nice to play. The touch sensitivity is very manageable for a guy who is not really a keyboardist like me, it doesn't over respond.This is a GREAT Unit for a guitarist/singer who wants who wants to be able to sit down to his PC and sketch out a song with drums and base. Just make sure you have software to do the synth stuff, because it is just a controller, it has no sounds. I use propellerhead's Reason software.

    Sweet Deal!

    By UC ROCK ON

    from New Orleans, LA

    Although it seems cheap at first glance, this is a very nice keyboard. I use it with GarageBand on my Mac, and not only have I never had any problems with it, but it's small and takes up little space. Although it has very few features, it's a Midi controller, after all, and a very inexpensive one at that. Bottom line: I've never had any problems with it, it gets the job done, it's still in almost mint condition after several years (a few scratches from when I moved), and it's a great deal.

    Perfect

    By Miz

    from Plainfield, NJ

    For the price, you can't get a better controller. I'm using Cakewalk Sonar 5 Producer Edition and this controller works perfectly. Easy installation and initial configuration - just plug it in and go. Fits right on my cluttered desk easily. Excellent product.

    Works great with GarageBand

    A nice unit, especially for the price. Good key action considering they are not weighted at all. I had a dead key on mine, but was replaced with only a little bit of foot-dragging from M-Audio. Looking forward to having fun with this,

    Just got it....worth the money...

    By the mzft

    from Hilo, HI

    I just recieved this controller today and I am very surprised with the quality of it and ease of setup! Worth the money that you pay and then some. I have had alot of controllers and I wanted just to get something smaller than my big one. It is worth every penny

    Excellent with soft synths

    By Karl Houseknecht

    from Palmyra, VA

    I use this controller with the soft synths in Cakewalk Home Studio 2XL. Awesome. Just plug into the USB and you're ready to go, no driver install needed with Windows XP so setup is a breeze. And if you use the USB option, no power adapter needed. Great entry unit for anyone needing occasional keyboards during recording.
