Perfect combination of size, quality, features, and price
TheGreenDino 10.01.2021
I have this keyboard for two months now and I am super happy about it. I use it as a small and mobile input to my MIDI setup and to create short melodies and sometimes just to have fun.

The quality (for the price) is quite high. I really like the feeling and the response of the pads. The whole thing is fully programmable and with 8 pads and 8 knobs it's completely enough for my use case to also act as a MIDI controller for my AUM setup on iPad.

Pros:
- quality for the price
- size
- programmable (the note and command code of all pads and knobs can be changed)
- No driver needed (Mac and iPad)

cons:
- the software package that comes with it is amazing, but the only thing is that somehow Akai makes it hard to download them. I had hard time finding the program editor, but once you get them, you are all set.

Superb keyboard for the price.
Handreas 04.12.2020
I’m not a professional pianist, but I am a professional sound engineer.

I mostly work with live instruments, but most projects I do these days include at least some software instruments. So far I’ve got by with an old M-Audio keyboard, but I needed something better for a theatre-project I was working on. I wanted a portable and nice feeling keyboard that could make playing and recording synths and especially percussion easier, and this one ticked all the boxes for me: Small and light weight, pads, rotary encoders and a nice price.

Pros:
Keys feel nice. I like that they’re a bit stiff.

The rotary (endless) encoders are a huge plus.



The pads are very good. Velocity sensitivity is very good.

Excellent portability. Low weight and small frame means this will fit in the smallest of bags.

Cons:
Keys are a bit on the small side, but it’s not a huge issue unless you’re expecting real piano keys. I don’t play “real” piano, so I don’t care much, but my significant other, who’s a pianist, absolutely hates the size of the keys.

The joystick, instead of separate mod and pitch wheels, is so-so. It’s not a dealbreaker for me, but I would prefer wheels.

better than expected

it is quite easy to use, intuitive interface, the keys are too small, but the sensitivity is good. The pitcher is not very sensitive when accidentally touched does not react. connects to the computer via the USB. I consider this a minus because it occupies one of the most necessary slots. Need to buy a USB hub

Not bad

All good with this midi keyboard. One thing i don’t like in particular is the “feeling” of the keys (i.e. soft playing is not loud at all).
