Absolute Beauty
Udayan, 26.05.2020
Arturia never disappoints. Feels solid, built quality is excellent, and sits perfectly in my home studio. The fades, knobs, and DAW integration all come handy and speeds up production pace. 100% recommended if weighted keys are not a requirement.

Great product for the price
Demens, 31.03.2020
I use it as my main midi controller for the DAW and also as a live keyboard. Has a solid build, the keybed is semi weighted and good to play on it. The velocity of the keys is good, on the pads not so sansitive. The faders and knobs are great and can be programmed inside the daw. Unfortunately not all buttons can be configured. Overall a great keyboard.

I'm extremely happy with this keyboard, especially the keys, which I was a bit scared of!! 5/5. And the analog lab it comes with is also great!!!

Really nice for the price
Mani Draugabani, 18.03.2020
The only thing I don't like is the velocity of the keys, it feels kind of cheap

But all the functions are really simple to use and the interface is quite nice.
