      Comments about Alesis VI61 61-Key Keyboard Controller:

      I'm happy that it worked instantly with my Acoustica Studio Pro 7 software, 64-bit. I'm having problems getting it to work with Ableton Live Lite 9, which I think is a windows 10 problem? It works in Propeller Reason though I'm only on a trial, so I can't say much about the software at this point.

      I love the looks of the keyboard, the overall sturdy quality, the rubber pads underneath so it won't scratch tables, the touch pads though a bit stiff, the feel of the keys in general except they are a bit stiff and go into expression fade away too quickly. Perhaps needs broken in.

      It arrived on time and in good shape. I'm looking forward to having a lot of fun creating music and learning in general.

        Comments about Alesis VI61 61-Key Keyboard Controller:

        With the pads being where the modulation/pitch change wheels usually are, this challenges the convention of the wheels being besides the keys. If you are mostly triggering loops and samples, this may be better for you. But most keyboard players I know lean on the keyboard's edge while using the wheels.

        Comments about Alesis VI61 61-Key Keyboard Controller:

        After playing with it for a while, I gave up on it and returned it for something else. I did like the build quality and the pads where awesome. SO was having so many buttons and faders. However, when I tried to program it with its editor, the setting would not take on the keyboard itself. Also the usb cable was really lose. And the buttons couldn't really be used the way I hoped in ableton. Overall I think its a disappointing let down from Alesis. They have a great hardware product with the VI61, but the software, editor part of it was left half-baked and its been a long time and they don't seem that interested in fixing it.

        Comments about Alesis VI61 61-Key Keyboard Controller:

        This is a high quality board at a very good price. The keys feel very good. The pads feel great and are very sensitive. I love how they light different colors, depending on how hard you press them. The pitch/mod wheels are rubberized and feel really luxurious. The knobs are accurate. My only complaint are the switches. I've switched from toggle to momentary in the editor, but no change. The way the fiction now makes them almost useless in ableton, which is why I wanted this board. Hopefully there is a software editor revision soon to address this.

            This ships without the software parameter software,,,, be for-warned that you cannot set the velocity, pads, or aftertouch without the editor,,, it is STILL in development... The keys, out of the box play loud or soft and little in between without the softyware
