    What motivated my choice: need a master keyboard and it is sold with the KeyRig No because I have no expendeur (one stone)
    the connection is very simple
    namely that the log must kreyrig ASIO compatible sound card to play in standalone mode

    UTILIZATION

    The keyboard is well suited to my use and n is not unpleasant to touch considering the price it is plug and play so we left branch and c
    The downside is that there are no pots nya so everything is done with the keys and c is a blow to
    config log n KeyRig sound is not so simple but also with several hours of manipulation there are no problems too and the sounds are terrible

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used the last two weeks on a PC with a sound card delta in 2496 and I am pleasantly surprised that
    c for me the most is the four sound modules
    less can be the small number of pots on the keyboard
    No I have not had the opportunity to try another keyboard so no comparisons can be personal but I find this one of an EXCELLENT value for money and for 100 euros I think I would do this choice

    I use it for a week now and I am very satisfied. As a nanoKEY for a while before I really appreciate the arrival of this keyboard ^ ^

    I do it again without hesitation that choice it seems to me that level for money is a very good deal plus it is perfect for beginners because computer music simple.

    Feature I like <span style="text-decoration: underline;">most:</span> the feel of the pitch bend and modulation (very nice: p)
    <span style="text-decoration: underline;">The least:</span> touch a bit surprising at first but we made ​​it very quickly and so there was not too used to playing on real piano no worries <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    USB connection, a pitch bend wheel, a modulation wheel, volume, input for a sustain pedal, the basic.
    a real MIDI connection had been significant ..

    UTILIZATION

    nothing more simple, it's plug n play.

    OVERALL OPINION

    tried several models, I have chosen for its price and size for my home studio. Octave for quite a small price so perfect. good on the other hand I would not recommend to those who want to play Mozart in midi, it was not a crazy speed, but it is handy to have it below the elbow.
    value for money very very honest.
    I do not do it again this election becaufe finally too great for use as I have. but other than that nickel.

    So here I wanted a piano that was more simple and cheap! I was close! Axiom had a 61 before, it sure is not the same quality .. or the same price range, but for my use it's perfect! My main goal initially was to have everything on the axiom, but separately (faders, drum pads and piano). It takes some getting used to the touch but after an evening pass to play with there is no problem to rate the! I was even surprised by the touch, I was not expecting that at all. It has a bank of his book with (M-Audio KeyRig). Again I was really surprised! In terms of the piano is going his way, it's sure!
    But otherwise it's all good!

    For me it is a good value for money. it remains a master keyboard that does not touch the piano at all, and who has only one assignable slider and no volume pot but it has a few good velocity and thus can do more or less the nuances necessary. It is very easy to use, plugs into USB and has an input jack for a sustain pedal to noon (which is not provided with). I had not found the time to better value for money and know that professional studios are equipped with this keyboard in Paris and who use them professionally. It works really well and is very useful in general. It is a very good product for this price I think.

    I use it for a year and dust.
    I used synthesizers in computer music, but since my move, I needed a small compact tool.
    I like the simplicity of the object (plug and play). No need for drivers under mac, recognized by all software (Cubase 4, Logic Pro 9, garageband ...)
    The buttons on the left modulation are less accurate than the previous version (no notch).
    It's not very expensive for what it is, can it get by.
    Next, you'll never touch the piano, but to do loops, music sheets, programming and layout is a perfect tool.

    I have been using this MIDI controller for about 3 months. It seems to be meant to be a compact, simple and easy to use MIDI controller that you can keep on your DAW desk for easy access. To that end, it works great and I'm very happy with it. You get 49 keys, not a whole keyboard, however there is a simple button layout for switching which traditional octaves are being covered by the keyboard section. So unless you're trying to play something with a really big note range, it isn't a problem. This is more suited for playing monophonic synth or piano lines, or something like that, rather than playing full piano parts with rhythm and lead within them. The key action is not that life-lik…

    I have been using this MIDI controller for about 3 months. It seems to be meant to be a compact, simple and easy to use MIDI controller that you can keep on your DAW desk for easy access.

You get 49 keys, not a whole keyboard, however there is a simple button layout for switching which traditional octaves are being covered by the keyboard section. So unless you're trying to play something with a really big note range, it isn't a problem. This is more suited for playing monophonic synth or piano lines, or something like that, rather than playing full piano parts with rhythm and lead within them. The key action is not that life-like when compared to a piano, but rather the light, bouncy action that you expect from a low cost keyboard. This is fine, considering the common application of just laying down simple synth lines.

    It has a volume slider which can be used to change your output velocity. It also has a pitch bend wheel that snaps back to center, which is useful for the more lively sounding synth lines. In addition, it has a mod wheel, which can also provide for more dynamic performances. It also is rather comact, sleek, and stylish, so it looks good up on the DAW desk. Connection to your DAW is also a cinch - no MIDI interface required - so you just plug in the USB cable after installing the provided driver, and you should be good to go. Not only that, but the unit is powered by the USB as well, so this cuts down greatly on the amount of cables needed. It also has a jack for a sustain pedal (not included), and an on/off switch to kill the light blue LEDs when not in use. I have used other MIDI keyboards, and while this won't amaze anyone, certainly gets the job done and looks good doing it. It's also pretty cheap, so it's a great value. I'd buy it again.
