Some of the features that motivated my choice were the 49 semi-weighted keys with After touch for amazing musical expression, the real MPC pads with MPC Note Repeat and MPC swing and the great arp that comes with the product.

This product has a midi connection.


The general configuration and setup is quite simple , no additional effort and time needed to set up this product.

The manual that comes with this midi controller covers a lot of ground regarding the features and how to get the best results using this controller.

The patch selection is pretty simple , you get a screen that controls a lot of functions and features.


What I like most about this product are the 49 semi-weighted keys with Aftertouch , the built-in step sequencer , real MPC pads and eight backlit LED touch faders that look very fancy and feel amazing.

I like the fact that you get a lot of pads , around 80 assignable pads & faders and the you also get a free version of ableton which is a great deal.

The only thing that I don't really like is the color , somehow I would have wanted more of a classic color , like black or white , however the placement of faders and pads is extremely comfortable and pleasant to work with.

My opinion about the value for the price isn't so great , this product is very expensive , it costs around 500$ , for this amount of money you could probably get a bigger midi controller and maybe something better.

Precision and quality of the sound is great , the sensitivity , after touch , everything it feels like you're playing a real piano.

Knowing what I know, I would probably choose something that's cheaper , maybe a product from M-audio , so no , I wouldn't buy this product.
