Good but with some drawbacks
KFZ 06.06.2018
I'm an amateur musician, so I knew forehand that I was buying an entry level Midi Keyboard corresponding to my abilities and budget.

I use Swissonic excessively for the last 2 months

I'm trying to learn keys through this controller and for this purpose seems fine..Well built and accurate in terms of sensitivity in playing.

But I believe it lacks of features to the late mapping abilities that the majority of DAW's offer nowadays.

I used to play with a budget mini keyboard having additionally 8 pads and 8 knobs. Though the mini keyboard lacked of quality and finally died, was definitely much more responsive to the variety of DAW's parameters.

I guess you just can't have it all for this amount of money!!

Great place to start.
Shaun Nelson 11.11.2020
I needed a master keyboard to control VSTi's in my home studio.
This is my first keyboard controller and I'm very impressed so far.

Pros.
It's built well very solid, full-size keys as I have big hands, it was easily incorporated into my DAW.

Cons
For pro players out there, the velocity sensitivity could better I guess, but then again this is a very inexpensive instrument.

A great place to start that didn't bust the bank and perfect for my needs.

Pleasantly surprised
Anonymous 20.03.2017
I didn't expect much from this keyboard due to its price. My Roland midi died and it had cost me three times this price 7 years ago.

To my surprise and delight this is every bit as good as my Roland for velocity sensitivity and general feel. It works perfectly with Reaper on my 7 year old windows pentium 2 laptop with no latency, it also works perfectly with my old midi devices such as my Roland JP 8080.

I know like my last keyboard it doesn't have many knobs or features but the suits me fine as I won't be gigging with this.

It is a very solidly build keyboard which gives me the confidence that it will last a long time. Surprisingly good quality for an excellent price.

Very dissapointed, unusable velocity
input_a_new_name 16.08.2018
Pros:
-Very sturdy, metal body
-Just plug'n'play, no hassle with drivers
Cons:
-Very poor keys... what you'd expect to get for such price - is a lot more than you will actually get. Of course, they feel cheap, but that's not what's so bad about them, it's how their velocity curve is programmed. A lot of times the keys won't register you pressing them if you do it lightly, and at the same time the action is very light. It's impossible to control dynamics - the velocity range is very narrow, so it's very easy to get from quiet to loud without such intention, it's not fixable by adjusting the velocity settings, it's just how the mechanism is.
-Control keys feel weird, they don't always recognize your input.
-Some keys produce metal crackle sound when you press them

In summary, don't bother with this keyboard unless you want to learn the hard way why sometimes it's better to buy nothing than "at least something".
