    Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

    After having this for about a year, it's become my least favorite controller. It was easy to set up with FL and Live 9, and the editor software works well. But it's BULKY, and is very limiting production wise. There are no "banks", so you really only have 8 pads and 4 lousy knobs/switches.

    I'm now trying to sell it and get an MPK Mini, which does more in a smaller size.

      Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

      Perfect 25 key midi. The velocity has a learning curve. Strike it fast for it to be loud. Strike it slow for it normal or low. Works great with ableton. Plug and play. Great advice from jay at ext 3324.

      Velocity sensitivity issues

          Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

          I purchased this and had to return it. The velocity sensitivity on the keys was problematic. When playing a bass vsti, it kept playing the muted tone samples instead of the sustained tones that played consistently with my other keyboard. I talked with another person who had the same issue, so I don't think it was a defect... Just a low quality keyboard. It looks nice on the outside, and it is compact... But that doesn't really matter if the keys don't work right.

          Decent keyboard, but velocity curve is subpar.

          Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

          The keyboard itself is fairly well-mad. The addition of several pads and knobs, which can be assigned to MIDI CC controls, is nice! However, the software keyboard editor always crashes upon trying to edit the velocity curve of the V25, which is game-breaking for especially expressive play.

            Supposed to be plug and play but it wouldn't install. Tried installing it on two different PC computers and the computers would not recognize it. Installed the software that came with it an still no luck.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            Got this in the other day and since setting it up with Studio One and downloading the free Air Xpand2 software that was included with the keyboard, I can say confidently that this was a bad purchase on my part. I have always had great experiences with Alesis and Musician's Friend over the years but this is a bust. Feels cheap, Velocity pads act manic, the velocity curve of the entire board is just bad. I can hit a key twice with the exact same pressure and get two COMPLETELY different volume playbacks. It feels more like a toy than a tool. NOT FOR ME.

            Comments about Alesis V25 25 Key Keyboard Controller:

            I bought this MIDI controller to have for my home studio. It has useful features such as 2 octave key bed, drum pads, knobs, and buttons. I will say that setting up the knobs and buttons is tricky. The software that comes with it is very plain. You must enter specific midi channel and type of command for each. I still haven't been able to figure out how to set it up like I want it. I use this for recording with Studio One. I just stick with the keys and drum pads. Now, the drum pads are a bit fidgety and sometimes they hit more than once. Also when playing the keys sometimes one will virtually get stuck and will not turn off. Meaning they the physical key is not stuck but it will not tell the note to stop playing thus a continuous note. I don't know if I got a bad product or what.
