MIDI / USB comprehensive enabling me with these knobs, faders, pads and buttons to control my VST and my expendeur hardware keyboard.


Key Semi-loud with velocity which is perfect for my use.
MIDI is fully paramétrablable: MIDI Channel, Banks, MIDI CC and CP.
You can record multiple user configuration internally.


For 3-4 years in my home studio.
As for the live against it is difficult, it is very heavy and bulky.
At first I used it to control all my DAW, I mainteant other hadware Machine Controller and therefore the knobs part fader MPK serves me.
I would advise a more APC40 duo + single MIDI keyboard. The MPK is a very good choice to start.
