Good price value. Deeper set up is a bit tricky.

FelixOscar, 10.01.2018
This is my first pad/keyboard controller I ever bought so I am writing this from a perspective of a complete beginner. I am using it with MainStage3 and GarageBand.

PRO:
The pad is light small and handy. For the price the value is very good compared to bigger ones. You get a lot of free software offered by AKAI. If you only want to play some keys and drums on it, it is easy : plug n play. You have lots of different modes and I think there is everything in it you can ask for.

CON:
Since I also want to use it for starting and pausing samples I spend quite some time setting the thing up trying out different software. MPC Essentials is crap I think.

Recommendation:
Read and watch some videos about setting the thing up the way you want it. Once this is done it is very fun to use.

Summary:
Great thing. Good price value. However, needs some set up time for deeper integration.

I used to like it

fabiovsilva4, 12.02.2017
I used to love this keyboard. Then a key snapped off so easily...

I use this midi keyboard hooked up to my ipad mini 2 (apple camera adapter) through IK Sampletank, and let me tell you - amazingness happens.

Pros;
Portability - It's size and portability together with the ipad mini makes this a very good tool for synthesizers, leads and pads. The ipad powers the keyboard (must use a non-powered usb hub).
Usability - You can assign the keys to play a lead synth and the pads to play a drum-set for example. For its price is amazing.

Cons:
Built - although it's made out of solid plastic, its not the best build you'll see, it might break, if not treated well, i assure you.
Joystick - i really love it, but you have better control with separate modulation wheels.
Size - for keyboard players who want to get serious and are in a budget: you can find on thomann keyboards at almost same price, with 61+ full size keys. You will be totally able to learn the piano on something like that.

Conclusion:
If you buy it, plug it into your pc and install the provided amazing software, your creativity on music or soundtrack creation will exponentially grow. If you have a portable device, you can take it anywhere with you, and you will always be ready and eager to create.
Also, and very important - what I will do next is to buy a longer keyboard and use this one as the lead synthesizer, this would let you play the keys and a lead solo at the same time.
