What motivated my purchase is a promo 69 euros. As I DJ several MIDI interface, no need for the USB (if that is the PC version 300 is required in the same stick).
I bought it because I had a key two octaves on my Remote 25 and my assistant would be able to compose really playing two hands.


Touch, especially for my collaborator pianist, is the home plastoc plstoc but less than my rotten Radium 61 (which I dbarass few years ago). For a soft touch type synth I prfre qsuand even that of my Novation Remote 25.
Finally it is not the same price either.

No configuration to do. I do not use that to play on the VSTi and Reason.

I have not even opened the manual.


I did that for three days.

What I like about it is the price (and the look, the color "champagne" nice).
It is also small and lightweight. Frankly he should accompany me on a trip.

What I like least is the dial. In pitch, it refuses to send a command to the acute and I do not see how the rgler problle. Modulation is super hard handle (compared to the joystick of Novation is the galre) and in addition, as prcdemment said the race is low trs. One sometimes gets the impression that the pitch as the modulation increases from zero on any substance, no value intermdiaire continuous (hence the 9, otherwise the price would have been 10).

For the price (69 euros, but I think it's dstockage), there's no better. Roland is when the same, they know keyboards manufactured in the same low-end.

Ideal for those who do not care about the royal USB or have in addition a control surface (eg, BCR 2000 + with this keyboard .. for less than 200 euros when it was even a great tool work that rivals the "all intgrquot;). In any event, equivalent in price or M-Audio Evolution was a touch that crap then it is acceptable without being rvolutionnaire.

Any fawn, ds my budget allows me, it will be a CME UF-8 .. the class for an acceptable price. But we do not play in the same range plsu.
