Some of the features that motivated my choice were the 49 velocity sensitive keys, the DirectLink technology that creates a quick connections to your DAW functions.

There are two type of controls , both midi and pedal based.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration and setup is quite simple , nothing really advanced for the configuration stage , thanks to the technology that comes with this product , you get an instant connection with your working DAW trough the Direct Link feature.

The manual is a saver , very easy to follow starting from the basic to the more complex.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about this product , is the great price , the powerful design by M-audio , the eight assignable knobs and nine assignable sliders, the Direct Link mode and may other cool features.

You get also 6 dedicated transport controls , a bend wheel , and some dedicated track up/down buttons which take you away from your qwerty keyboard.

What I don't like about it , is the lack of drum pads , if you would get at least 8 drum pads , this would be a perfect product , also another thing that I found quite disturbing , is the feeling of the keys , they feel like a toy , not really high quality.

However, my opinion about the price is great , this is a very cheap product , and probably one of the best in this quality price range , you can get it for 120$.

Precision and quality of the sound is very good , no issues found in this area.

I've tried several midi controllers , this would be probably the easiest to work it , the faster to setup doe to its Direct Link Mode , and the cheapest , good midi controller for amateurs.

Knowing what I know, I would buy this midi controller.
