I needed a MIDI keyboard to start in computer music. That one I immediately liked it because it is a little "all in one". Pads, 25 buttons, sliders, REC / Start / Stop buttons, rapid changes Etc. octaves.
Great way to start! It is visually pleasing and easy to pick up!

UTILIZATION

The keys may be a little too harsh, but it is on a MIDI keyboard, not a piano.
Easy to learn, fast, light, ergonomic keyboard for that price you could not ask for more.
The manual is only useful for specific keyboard layouts, if we want to increase our use of the keyboard, if it is so easy to use that just plug and play!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for about 5 months and I'm really satisfied! It was my first MIDI keyboard and you can not ask for anything better for that price! Only drawback, the responsiveness of the pads. I can improve by adding the squares of rubber in the pads (note: most of warranty if it's done but essential for proper use), but otherwise nothing too bad.
Akai is a very good brand and I think in the future I will take the top model!
