With additions to build quality and additional features I could see myself giving this 5 stars.

But for anyone still thinking of buying … I'd have been happy with my purchase (if it had worked). It's compact and light enough, great size for a backpack, although the keys felt a little too plastic for me (keeps it light I guess) and the key springs were too firm for my liking too. The biggest downside was that the 'tap tempo' light blinked constantly in a glaring red which is a pain if you're working / studying rather than clubbing.
1. It does not produce any sound on its own. It's designed to work with Virtual Studio Tech (VST) and Digital Audio workstations (DAW) or midi software (Anvil Studio for example). There are plenty FREE to download on the internet.
2. It's plug and play, works a like a dream with Windows 10. I use it with the SuperSonico 5 stand-alone VST synth and it's just brilliant.
3. It comes with set-up program on CD if you want to program the Arppeggiator, sustain and octave buttons to behave in a certain way. The user guide is also included.
4. If you buy it and register it with Akai then you can get some free keyboard tutorial software. Ideal for beginners.
5. It fits into the front pocket on my laptop case so is really easy to carry around.
I read some of the reviews before I purchased this product and I can't understand why anyone would give it less that 4 stars at least. I believe there is a wireless version of this keyboard but that's not what I bought.
For the price I paid I am more than pleased.
-Le toucher infâme. Alors certes, il est sensible à la vélocité ( voir deuxième point), mais le toucher n'est tellement pas naturel et varie d'une touche à l'autre que c'est une plaie à utiliser.
- La sensibilité à la vélocité est elle aussi une plaie. Il ne comprend pas les légères variations, du coup, je joue comme un gros bourrin et réajuste la vélocité par la suite sur mon séquenceur. Perte de temps énorme et rendu moins bon que s'il faisait son travail.
- L'arpégiateur a le temps de réponse d'un narcoleptique sous morphine.
- Enfin, les touches ne sont pas toutes à la même hauteur. WAT ?!
il est joli
il fait bluetooth ( youpi )
Concrètement, ce clavier vaut le coup si vous avez du temps pour pallier à ses défauts en post-prod et que vous n'avez pas d'argent. Personnellement, je l'utilise pour ajouter des séquences VST sur mes compos.
Si c'est pour du live, autant acheter un kazoo.
Si ce commentaire vous a paru pertinent, vous pouvez cliquer sur le bouton "utile", ça me motyivcera à continuer dans ma démarche !
