I've had it for a while now. Its good at what it does! The velocity is actually very good compared to most controllers. Its not hammer action, but the action is still good. Its better than synth action and the velocity plays well with most piano plugins I've used it on (Reason Pianos, NI Akoustic, TruePianos). Doesn't have many fancy rotary knobs or even a pitch wheel. I use it for piano only and it gets the job done.The only thing that would bug most people is the plastic it is made out of. It reminds me alot of as someone said "trashcan" plastic.Overall, a solid buy at the price and I would recommend to anyone who needs extra keys for piano VST, if not anything for the good velocity.
I would have bought and recommended this keyboard constroller instantly had it a pitch wheel... Anyone into doing lead work would be limited by this oversight. Is pitch-wheel technology so arcane that it can't be included on a controller?! Ugh!Keyboard Magazine had a recent review of this, and mentioned its other features were fine. Keyboards without pitch-wheels of some sort are pretty much useless for any sort of pop/rock music. Any lead instrument patch (analog lead, horn sounds such as sax) requires judicious use of the pitch wheel to affect a lively and musically convincing performance. The mod-wheel simply can't perform this function as well since it mainly controls periodic modulation usually in terms of either frequency or amplitude or both. In some cases it's used for timbre blending or shifting, but still, not really useful for lead work. (Even if reseting the module to receive pitch info via the mod controller, where does one center the wheel?)For more of an explanation of this, see Jordan Rudess' instructional video. It becomes obvious that the pitch wheel is superior to the mod-wheel for vibrato and bends.I cannot express enough my dismay in this sort of product design mistep.I gave 5's in quality value and overall since this forum wouldn't allow me not to give a rating in these if given one in features.
It is a very good price for how many keys it has, the only thing was displeased with is, the semi-weighted keys don't seam weighted at all.
The prize is perfect. I've read many people complaining about its plastic body, but theres nothing wrong unless you plan to trough it down a large staircase. If it had a Pitch wheel this would be the best semi weighted 88 key controller out there.
This midi controller is not intended as a substitue for a concert grand, however for those of us looking for a light weight portable midi controller with the feel of a high end 76 key semi-weighted keyboard, this more than fits the bill. The action is between your typical 61 key synth and a hammer action controller. Contrary to other reviews I have read the velocity sensativity is actually very good. Don't be scared away by negative reviews. Try it, You will be surprised.
I like this controller as it is the only good 88-key unit available within it's pricerange. Although the finish was slightly poor. The felt dust sheild was improperly installed, but I was able to fix it with out returning the unit for repair. Otherwise, I really like it.
Light (really light).Good action - amazing for its weight & price. All this & 88 keys.
I've used this this keyboard for over a year and love it. First its lightweight. Personally, I love the feel. It allows me to play B3 organ patches as well as piano with ease. For the person who didn't like the pitch wheel, why didn't you just buy the next version up that includes it? This is a basic keyboard, but its perfect for the person on the move.
Midi systems are the most flexible. I have used this module to teach others how midi works. There's nothing to it. The only drawbacks are no aftertouch, no pitch wheel, and the lack of memory presets. Either keep your voice list nearby or use the manual controls on your sound module to get over this hurdle. If you want a pro sound with not a lot of bucks to spend just pair this controller with a mid range sound module. This is a great start.
