Value For Money : Excellent
Hello everyone! :-)

I fill this gap I even made me default: an opinion on this fine product, the Alesis Photon X25

- What technical specifications motivated your choice?

I wanted something compact, reliable, used in mobile station with a powerful enough laptop (ASUS A6K, 1 GB RAM, Turion 64 bit). Reduces had a budget, then exit the Firewire. His "face" me well with the flat pitch bend, which gradually s'clairent red, like the Ion.
- What connector (MIDI pedals ...)?...

USB 2.0 line, the keyboard does not have power secondary SERIES, only option.


- The touch keyboard is it enjoyable? Should you use?

The keyboard has a soft touch rev (nothing to do with my MS2000), aa look sturdy, the knobs are friendly and plump surcrot unlimited. I would not be afraid to carry it on scne ;-)

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?

My opinion: Install the door first come dork. RAS ... A CD provided dmo soft, but not under the CONTRL latency or other unnecessary as the product is basic in its design. I open Absynth first, I admire the 8ms latency displayed and l. .. ... argh anxiety crunches, delays, blockages, blue notches ... time for me to look more prs on my config. I do not know why, I exclude from the outset the X25 and my laptop, and I shall decide to beat a dead horse on the OS.
I was right ... as the laptop came with WinXP SP2 + (aa its importance ...), I'll blow it all, a WinXP + SP1 installs, removes unnecessary stuff installed by default ( The chipset integrates the Ethernet card, the CONTRL temprature of the Coffee Maker intgre, the fryer ...), assuming that my laptop would never see the Internet.

And it is anxious that I reinstall my apps and my keyboard. And a joy unspeakable ... works! And even though plutt: 8 ms assumes the CPU does not move, Cubase has made a new friend, a quick bath. CONTRL AXYZ and the X25 promises chorgraphies scne worthy of mime Marceau ...

- The select MIDI channels, patches is easy?

On this point, I will be lightweight. I wish above all be able to order some flies live apps. Right-click, quick on the gas. So I'm not dtails input in its ability to CONTRL. However, there are presets for some virtual synths known (eg Pro 53, B4 and FM7, too).

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Full User's Manual, RAS.

In conclusion: Good bte, but watch your config dpart, may quickly turn to trs dsastre intgral. J'espre by my instructions some users will avoid these types of picked ...

- How long have you use it?
About 10 days, with diffrent installs, until that it works ... but nothing to do with the keyboard.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

+: The mouth, the look of the beefy components, AXYZ, sound, the latency, the many knobs.
-: No CONTRL latency, the usual paramtres a PC, nothing ... it's pretty dstabilisant.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Many do not. But Tascam US1222, Ozonic are passs home. With the same problem. By dduction I complained directly sp2. (For some reason, for cons ...)

- How do you report qualitprix?

So I do not know the how they did it ;-) Trs good value quality / price

-With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, I think, the default Firewire, more expensive, but this solution is a USB trs cool
