4.55 (3 Reviews) I really love this MIDI keyboard. The specs: 49 keys, 8 sliders with 3 banks, 8 knobs with 3 banks, mod/pitch wheels, transports, LED screen.
This thing is fantastic and simple with ableton live 8, providing great sound on a budget.
This little midi keyboard makes all the right compromises, and includes all the necessary features. Sure, it may not have a dedicated midi out, but if you're running most of your stuff from your daw, that will never be a problem.
The sliders and knobs have a pretty good feel to them, and are just begging to be assigned to all variables possible. Dedicated transport buttons are a useful touch.
The keys are springy and responsive, and the pitch and mod wheels are fluid.
I got mine this week.
It is the first keyboard I've owned, so I can't compare it to anything else.
I've only used it with FL Studio so far, and the two go hand in hand with each other.
It is definitely good enough for me.
