32-key master keyboard with 8 pads.
I hesitated getting an AKAI MPK mini, but the keys are really small for my big fingers.
The M-audio seemed better fitted and it turns out it is.

Connections: USB

UTILIZATION

I'm not a pianist and, to me, the keyboard is very good.
I have fat fingers and it's OK. I wouldn't say it's great, but it's all right.

Concerning the pads, they fell kinda strange. I'll explain myself: Since you don't press anything (it's a sensor), it's hard to gauge the force. But you end up getting it with practice.

The setup is not a problem, however, the transport keys aren't necessarily recognized (I use it with Ableton Live 9), but I still haven't looked into why is that...

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it for 6 months, more or less. I bought for the World Music Day to trigger some drum phrases. But I plan to use it more intensively as soon as I have more time.

You can take it anywhere to write songs, it's great. Besides, the IGNITE software that comes with it is simply incredible... And everything fits inside a laptop bag.
