Great
22.10.2015
This is a great piece of kit for the home studio user. I managed to get this working with Reason DAW in about half an hour (I am not very good with techy stuff). There are three main aspects:
1 The keys are nicely weighted, in Reason I can adjust the velocity of each not played if i need to and the response appears quite accurate.

2 The controllers link well with my channels in the software; which is great. I can adjust channel levels, play stop, record, I am sure I will be able to assign effect parameters when I get a chance.

3 The pads seem good, they are quite sensitive - velocity wise and seem well made enough.

On the whole the body of the unit is well made and substantial, the all round quality seems very good.
I wanted a controller and a keyboard that would work with Reason and this is perfect for me.

This midi keyboard has very nice functions if U have ableton, very practical and easy to use.If yoou dont already own ableton, it comes with a lite version that U can upgrade for a decent price (money saving).
On the other side I would really recommend ANY other interface for the knobs, Im very sorry to say I havent seen such poor quality knobs in the last years. cheap plastic knobs with no resistance and U have to turn more than 360° to make a 180° on a VST or abletton itself.
The keyboard is average I've seen better but for that price U cant ask much.
I would say very easy to use, very nice for starting producing your music and gettting used to ableton (if U upgrade it ofc). plastic knobs should be improved if they keep the Impulse series.
