Evolution Mk-225c
The features provided are what I expect from this price range. Although if there was a way to cram a slider or two on there I would have liked it...but this is not a serious issue. :D The pitch and mod wheels are now very comfortable to use and knobs are as well. I did appreciate the octave transposition feature that some in it's class did not have.

Price paid: $130

UTILIZATION

Although the number pad to the left of the controller could make you wonder if it's daunting....Don't worry...this controller is easy to use and fun to play on.

OVERALL OPINION

I will admit that its construction leaves a lot to be desired. Having said that, I will admit that a rock-solid casing is needed here. Mine sits on my computer desk next to the keyboard and rarely sees abuse...aside from the occasional battle with dust. :D But for the laptop musician they may want to look for options with a more thick casing as they may drop it or it may see more wear and tear.

I guess the love I have for this controller is really out of familiarity. What I mean is that I love that I know where everything is on this controller and how everything works. Because this controller keyboard is so simple to use you will begin to fall in love with its ease of use. Once you're at home with this controller your workflow should increase. :D

Evolution Mk-225c
The 8 assignable potentiomtre is a real plus that price l. It is compact and takes up little space. + Sustain midi out is not madness but enough.

UTILIZATION

Touch is deep trs (which can be Gnant for someone wanting to play). We can rgler the VLOC. The connection is very simple, one branch and it works. SETTING THE The patch is simple but laborious. The manual is on-no-can-clear.

OVERALL OPINION

4 years of use primarily with Reason. While satisfactory for my use. The supply of USB makes it a good compromise solution mobile. The ratio quality price is excellent. I made a fairly intensive use under various conditions more o less adaptable and just today (the morning) that I have a potentiomtre DCON a bit. Exprience with this choice but I do it again for the cot convenient and inexpensive, to have the dpanner to take the train, but probably not as Controller or keyboard in my matre HS . I put a note for this award because it is a reliable and practical to the extent that we do not ask him too.

It is fun, convenient and cheap but it's far from the best
usb power supply practice
with the experience I would have bought something else

Evolution Mk-225c
The price for MIDI

UTILIZATION

The keyboard has nice touch keys but the debate is too important.

OVERALL OPINION

I used the last one year, what I like most is the quick installation you plug it works, what I like least is the pots that move the buttons on the software that is not touched (ca kidding severe). The value a lot. With the experience I do not buy it, I advise against it

Evolution Mk-225c
I took him because I needed a small keyboard to play little or THEME environments without having to change from my radium pRSET every five minutes. And as it has knobs for pRSET ...
MIDI OUT connector, USB, pedals and a power socket for power supply.

UTILIZATION

The touch keyboard is not perfect, but I think by being a good piano, a Rhodes or an old organ, the touches of synths are never great wonders. But as we will not play Chopin on a two-octave keyboard, touch me.
The big plus for me is very simple to configure, change MIDI channel is quasi instantanment, unlike the Radium (true head case) for pRSET buttons are excellent and instantaneous. I am less a fan of rotary knobs, but I only use them for the volume and pan of my midi channel. Their programming is very simple (nothing to do with m-audio)
Assign-press control
-Turn or press the edit
-Assign a control change.
ottoman, two seconds!
The manual looks pretty succinct, but it is not just because the South is relatively the same from one device to another.
I put a new one because the keyboard is not really super comfortable, not super super ractif (but a hundred times better than the radium I think.)

PS: Take 425 version instead, and go for the soft Enigma, which can set by dragging and dropping assignments of knobs

OVERALL OPINION

- I for a week, and I think I sell my radium to make a 49-key evolution. They seem much more suited to those who pass the computer music to the game live. The must is the knobs to change the pRSET and configuration very simple and almost instantaneous. The least is the touch, but a two-octave keyboard, it takes not to play the virtuoso in gnral, so a bit of a false problem (and it's only a matter of flavor ...)
I tried a little radium and prs all models, to Doepfer, but must of the must expensive.
good quality price ratio, even if I find a just another piece of plastoc two son fighting in a duel, but hey, it remains the most affordable.
With exprience, I sell radium, or I roll it to me in hand dfouler and j'achte Evolution.
Modified:
The machine has less than a year, and the controllers no longer send any messages, probably to a microchip dfectueuse! J'espre be an isolated case ...
I put 10, I divide by two for this reason

Evolution Mk-225c
- Specifications that motivated my choice:
Keyboard "dynamic" with 2 assignable knobs and 8 pots! (Screen digital blue) the great class!)

- Connectivity:
MIDI and USB!

UTILIZATION

- The touch keyboard is nice and is perfect for computer music!

- The general configuration:
Is not easy, you branch you put the CD driver, long live XP everything is automatic.
Once installed, even the pots was already correctly assigned in Reason!

- The selection of MIDI channels:
Quiet! Is a button for that!

- Manual:
Clear and sufficient ... It is on it's so simple!

OVERALL OPINION

- I use it only for a few days, but no problems!

- What is so special that you love the most:
The assignable pots! : P

- Have you tried many other models before buying:
1 TERRATEC MIDI keyboard SMART: nice but just 49 keys, no pots ..

- The quality / price ratio:
Excellent !!!!! jlai bought for € 80 OCCAZ, it is niquel, even nine I buy!

- With experience, you do again this choice:
Yep, jle board everyone!

Evolution Mk-225c
I needed a master keyboard taking up much space, I found my happiness with this one.
Less than 48cm X 20 cm, it is fitted to 8 wheels / controllers assignable pitch bend and modulation wheels, two keys select octave practices.

UTILIZATION

The installation is more than simple supply and usb midi cable (included), but it also works with a MIDI cable and a DC classic. Sustain pedals possible.
A driver comes to grate the controllers, etc ... Nickel it works right away, without making head.
The keyboard is comfortable, that's exactly the type of product that suited me.

Manual in French, clean.

OVERALL OPINION

I recently, so I Reserved my opinion on a long PERIOD.
Regarding the price (129 euros), I still find it a bit expensive for the electronic hardware manufacturing with a cot in a factory in Southeast Asia should be around the area of not much, but I must admit that it is complete.
For those who have little space, the keyboard ch'tiot IDAL.
There is no competition in the tiny keyboards, difficult to weigh the Comparet.
