    Good Enough For Me...

    Posted by Mario G. on Aug 23rd 2011

    Good controller for getting ideas down. I'm not a keyboard player per say, but the action feels fine to me. I got this one mainly for the featues it had (& the price). So far, no complaints here. If you work mainly in Pro Tools (like me) you definately need to get a M Audio controller. Other brands don't function as well with PT (I think Digi/Avid did this on purpose) Anyway, this is a good value that I would recommend.

    Really great.

    I love this midi controller. The knobs and sliders are super tough. My only problem, is the keys feel a little weird.
