I wanted a master keyboard to control my home or vsti scne. For me the feel was more important than the number of controllers. But when you look at the m-audio products in matters of keyboards we still a lot of things between the Keystation, the evolution, ozone, oxygen, radium etc. etc ...
My choice fell on this one, not comfort the good reviews it and l.
The principle of feeding me well motivated USB also: emcombrement less, especially on stage.
I still enjoyed at least one controller in addition to the modulation wheel and sustain pedals. Anyway .... whether at m-audio or elsewhere, is the best compromise number of touch-controllers-power USB I've seen.


So I ordered the bte internet (too lazy to move) without having esssay.
And well I never do it again ...
I'm pretty dcu.

Installation: nothing to say is simple: you plug and shoo! even with no driver install XP.

The USB and stability: the ben y 'problems sometimes, be careful not put out any time, it made me crash my Cubase several times because I had turns off (and no branch. It is also comes with a USB cable ridiculously short.

Touch: Semi-Weighted .... yeah, frankly I do not like me, c always better than a basic keyboard but it's even far from satisfactory. The worst are the wheels and above the bend, it is horrible, very soft, it is trs bad, it really makes playschool.

The worst: I plug my pedals Sustain: the polarity is reversed while supposedly in the manual, the keyboard automatically recognizes it. Even when they explain that if the polarity is not good, just aluminum keyboard while still pressing the pedals except that if it shuts down and the bazaar that is thrown or cubase chain ( or else I guess) the software sometimes crashes or can not find the connection noon or so everything works but the polarity and still no good.

Manual: nothing spcial wrong, it is rather clear


I use it for three weeks, not on stage but I hate selling it already ...
It's really not a good product even for 200 euros.
