Robust keyboard 4 octave synth touch of normal size. The one with built-in support for ipad, adjustable (like a mini-oasys ;) equipped with two wheels pitchbend and modulation, 9 types mpc pads, keys sequencer transport, octave + or -, a volume knob and buttons for direct access to menus SynthStation app, among others ...
At the rear a mini headphone jack, L / R outputs 6.35 jack, sustain pedal input, USB and external power supply 6v 3A.


The feel is correct, but spongy enough to use the keyboard which is intended. Knobs pleasant.
The pads are firm, a little too much for my taste, the volume knob and buttons are selection.
Almost all good apps work with this keyboard (most are now core-noon), so it is essential that a keyboard is an alternative to the Alesis IO Dock (which I own also) or complement to mobile use. It can also order your favorite VST via USB.


I use it for about 1 month, the headphone, the sofa bed for an idea quickly without having to turn any home studio or when I only have a little time ... There's only drag ipad, pointing an app, and it works direct ... The + is rather long to choose which app to play ;)
I have not tried keyboard competitor because it is the only one I know where they fixed the screen (ipad) directly above, and ca is rather nice!
The +:
- It is very well built, rather strong.
- Swivel screen
- Quality / price ratio interesting

The -:
- The pads can be a bit too firm ...
- Touch perfectible

Frankly, for those who use their iPad to compose, it's a must to play in good conditions (compared to the SynthStation 25 which is rather a toy), in the same way as the Alesis IO Dock if you have already one or midi keyboards. I do not regret my purchase!
