I was looking for a strong master keyboard 25 keys, with a lot of knobs and drum pads, USB and Midi.

I use it mainly with Ableton Live.

UTILIZATION

Affect
I have a piano and am accustomed to heavy touch. I was afraid to touch because it is difficult to find something drinkable in 25 keys. Well I must say I am pleasantly surprised. It suits me perfectly.

Knobs
Verily I love. They are solid and really fun to use.

Pads
This is where it gets a little gate. Very hard, so not easy to use according to how it is used. Personally I'm using that to launch clips in Ableton live. And then it fulfills its role.

Midi
A little surprised at first because I was expecting to have to install a driver: but no driver. Plug and Play. So at the beginning we do not know too if it is installed or not.

Manual
For Quickstart, okay, this is translated into French. But not the rest, so when you want to enter the parametrage, it's a little complicated if you are not used

OVERALL OPINION

Overall very positive.
