  1. Fun keyboard but the pads need improving Review by Jake
    Rating

    As with the majority of the Akai lineup, the pads will leave you disappointed. if you have never used pads that respond the way they should, then you may not notice as big of a difference. but once you have tried the pads on a Maschine or any of the other higher end MIDI controllers, you will know exactly where this controller lacks. The pads require too much force to register a hit, your fingers will hurt after playing for a short period of time and if you are like me, you want to be able to play for hours. the keyboard function of this device is what i would expect it to be, I have not used a wide variety of keyboards so to me, a keyboard is a keyboard. Its a fun item and if the pads were as responsive as they should be, then it would be fantastic, but they will leave you wanting better pads. (Posted on 11/21/13)
