Serves it purpose.

By 

from Cary, NC

Keyboard is what it says it is. It was basically plug and play with both Reason and Pro Tools. Only plays at one level. Keys are a little small. I needed an easy to transport keyboard to do melodies when on the road. For a cost effective substitue this is the board. Just keys and nothing else.

Perfect for novices

By 

from Boston, MA

Works great with GarageBand and the included software is pretty fun too. It's pretty much plug and play on a mac but you have to select a sound card on a PC. The keys are a bit too small to do any fancy playing, but if you just want to get some sound out of your music programs, you can't beat the value. Small and portable too.

Good for the money paid

By 

from Pittsburgh, Pa

Pros: Cheap. Easy to operate and begin making some pretty good music. I'm a new producer and I wanted to get my feet wet using vst and midi. I use this controller along with Fruity Loops 7. I like what I've been able to do just with this peice of equipment and will probably be upgrading in the future. In addition, I like that it's small because I can pack it up with my laptop and take it with me. Cons: Keys are very small, however not too small to play. Keys are not weighted. Overall, great peice of equipment for the money
