Great Simple Midi Controller, No Frills. Review by Andrew
Rating
I bought this as a B-stock item on this site. When I received it, I was surprised by the great condition it was in, plus all cords and the CD were included.
Now onto the Keyboard. It is very simple to use; just plug in, and set your DAW to recognize the Midi controller and your all set! The keys are light (cant expect weighted keys at this price). And I've found minimal lag at times, but I believe this is due to my DAWs settings which I've corrected since. This keyboard does exactly what you'd expect it to, and if your working all digital, Its all you'll need to get writing! (Posted on 4/24/13)
Wow. Review by bFunk

This is my main MIDI keyboard. I use it with Pro Tools MP9 for laying down instrument parts. My previous keyboard was a KeyRig 25 (also M-Audio) and wow, they've come a long way. The previous cheapo-entry-level controller didn't have that great of action, but this has great action and great feel - velocity just feels spot-on. The mod and pitch wheels are nice, too. The build quality is nice and it's easy to set up. Wish they had a 25-key version of this specific keyboard, though - it's a little big for my desk.

It comes with an M-Audio Micro and Pro Tools SE, which is not all that useful to me since I have a more powerful version of PT, but it includes Elastic Audio and Xpand!2 so it's a great intro to Pro Tools if you've never used it before. (Posted on 4/3/12)
Good for a beginner Review by Johnny5

If you're just getting started out with making music on the computer and you need something to do basic input of MIDI notes and have some lower-latency audio back out to be able to hear it, you can't do much cheaper than this.

The keyboard, which is supposed to be the star of this package, is OK at best. Mushy, flat keys with very little travel distance. It takes getting used to. Such is life when you want a 4-octave keyboard for $120.

The M-Audio Micro audio interface is interesting - it's a tiny USB dongle with an 1/8" output to headphones and a 1/8" mic/line input. And it's got low-latency ASIO drivers, to boot.

Pro Tools SE is a super-stripped down version of Pro Tools M-Powered. No 3rd party plugin support, way cut-down track counts, and so many advertisements to upgrade on the menus it's kind of like installing ad-ware. If you're just starting out, you'll find this to be really unfriendly.

Personally, I'd spend a bit more and get better capabilities if I'm just starting out. (Posted on 7/19/11)
