  • Expensive sound at a bargain price

    As reviewed by Richard Sutterfield on 1/2/2014

    Excellent product. Couldn't be happier with the general look, feel and sound, and especially the action and sensitivity of the keys. For this price they feel much better than I would have expected, even when playing "very softly". Everything works as it should. Drivers install when you plug in the USB and you're all set. I'm running it through my Reaper DAW and some free software that imitates a Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, grand piano, etc. and it works perfectly. I sound just like Ray Charles or Gregg Allman. If only I could play like them! Installation is simple, I used the MIDI output as input to my audio interface and it works fine. You can also use the USB connection, whatever seems to work best, your DAW will find them both. It's a 5-pin MIDI jack. I'm running the DAW output through a pair of Alesis studio monitors also from Guitar Center, and it sounds like a million bucks. Just the ticket for amateur recording buffs like us.

  • So close, but...

    As reviewed by Don Sevendy on 1/15/2013

    The quality and flexibility are fine for the MIDI hobbyist use I'm putting this to; however, there is one serious shortcoming in the design: the keys are too short! It's not that they're non-standard in any way, it's just that the fulcrums are right at the back of the end of the exposed keys--they need to be three or four inches behind this for the touch to feel reasonably uniform along the length of each key. As it is, the touch is light at the front and nearly rigid toward the back of each key. Fine if you're going to pound away on the white keys, but it's impossible to play most chords pianissimo!

  • Great keyboard at great price

    As reviewed by Bradford Hadley on 10/18/2012

    I needed a keyboard mostly for recording through a USB port, but also wanted the MIDI output too. This one does it all. They keys are good, especially for the price. Not weighted but the pressure sensitivity is good. I haven't used the midi controls features yet, haven't really figured it out.
