The absolute best in the 100 bucks pricetag
suseJattack, 05.09.2020
This keyboard is, in my humble opinion, the best in its price range. I have tried the most famous ones like the Akai, some M-Audio ones and the Nektar Impact lineup, but this is by far the best.

The layout is absolutely gorgeous, which may not be needed to make music, but I personally think it is important that your gear is beautiful, and I find this keyboard quite aesthetically pleasing.

For Ableton users this is a no-brainer, since the amount of features you get to handle the software are absolutely insane. Despite that, Novation have taken other DAW users into consideration and brought up some nice features and add-ons for non Ableton users.

Technically speaking, I am no expert, but I find the keybed much more confortable to play than the other ones and the pots are nice. They wobble a bit but can't ask much.

I find the slider-type modulation and pitch wheels much more comfortable to use than the real thing. Also, they show no bump since they are flat with the surface, so I think it is a great design decision.

The pads are no special good in quality concerns (also not special bad, either, they work absolutely fine), but the device comes with a piece of sofware (Components) that lets you program every single pad and pot in every possible way, which I find absolutely amazing.

Speaking of software, at the beginning, they let you download everything that you get from the device from a nice landing page, so it is very easy to get everything set up.

All in all, I think you don't give up in anything with this device, while still keeping it cheap. Can't imagine how good their higher end devices may be.

Novation quality and value mini 25 key TRS midi
SynthMind, 04.01.2021
I've used my MK3 keyboard for producing on my iPad and Windows DAW, for six months or more with no complaints.
The keys, tho mini keys, enable chords and flourishes of notes.
You can enjoy the brilliant arpeggiator with all it's variations, or assign chords making them a breeze to play. Hold on! What about the velocity and feel of the keys? They're what you would expect in terms of size from mini keys, so they’re not great for people who prefer full size keys, but I have no problem with these on the MK3, they feel responsive with a balanced velocity and are fun and playable. The same for the drum pads, which are great!
Ableton Live users will be delighted with the integration and pad LED colour coding.
The free software licenses are very useful instruments.
My favourite feature is the TRS midi out which I use the play my Crave synth live.
Th 8 knobs at the top allow for quick midi learn function in any software or digital hardware synths, and really make your performances fun!

Pros:
Size is mobile and studio friendly. Features: TRS midi type A.
Touch slider Pitch and Mod.
Cons: Power is over 100Ma which means iPad cannot power this keyboard directly. There needs to be an option to switch off all LED’s, then a direct to iOS without the need of USB hubs would be better.
No bluetooth connectivity. If only this had BT, it would outsell Korgs Nano Key Studio which in my opinion has less playable keys, otherwise it’s maybe better choice if you need bluetooth and smaller device.
Overall the Novation MK3 is a really great mini midi keyboard and I will continue to enjoy using it. Looks great and the build quality is practically flawless and it's light and portable making great for mobile and live performances.

good midi keyboard, better than many that are more expensive. Many useful and important functions, which are easy to understand on your own, or with various training videos on video hosting.
