So I asked for a midi keyboard and had my personal top 3 and Sid Mcal replied with my first choice.

So I bought it, and got it today.

I could give a review, but it has nothing to add to the general concensus.

I was worried about the rotary knobs being too light of a touch in their radius, being reviewed as flimsy.

Well they have good resistance (which was important to me) but they just feel cheap, as does the entire keyboard.
When playing with it through a synth though everything works nice and the included arppegiater is quite the bonus in workflow as opposed to working with in-software arps.

Anyways here are some pics.

It may feel cheap compared to big-boy hardware, but compare it to anything else in its price range, and it will feel like it's made of steel.

Enjoy!

thnx

Yeah it feels a bit cheap, but the rotary knobs don't skip increments which I'm happy about.

Pads could be better in responsiveness. Their velocity curve feels weird, but maybe it's because of my technique.
