At first I was seduced by the heavy touch announced by the manufacturer and opinions right here, and then from the time I was looking for a MIDI controller with pads. its 8 knobs are not foreign to my choice, in short, for this price range, we must admit that everything has a large.


Let us begin with the feel of the keyboard: If you are looking for a pure heavy touch, do not go, he must type in the more upscale, but nice touch is still a touch "spring".

Then, the aftertouch is not programmable, as has been seen here: there are just touch presets, which is not bad.

The touch pad is accurate enough for cons, especially if used in preset "Bourin".

Notched knobs, infinite race. Give it a try and tell if it suits you.

Since I use it as I please with Live and its function "midi learn" the 127 programs are completely useless for me now. That said, there are many possibilities and the manual is very detailed about it. All the "Advanced Options" of this manual is very clear to store your preferences. In short, a midi controller like any other.


I use it for 3 weeks.

I had an Oxygen 8 v2 before, touching sucks, no pads ... I also tried the Akai MPK mini home, and I confess that I was not convinced (it really makes toy next to the Axiom).

Likes: the pads, touch keyboard corect and notched knobs (and yes there who love, especially when you know adjust their sensitivity proves that the most accurate and practical), the look is not disgusting.
I like less: for me the ideal MIDI controller would leave all programming to the software portion of the device. Instead of the screen and navigation buttons, zippers 6 were perfect, but I dream a little.

Price / quality ratio, I would do this choice? Yes yes and yes, with this controller, "what you see is what you get." A midi controller quite honorable and practical, reasonably priced.
