I love using KMI products. There's a bit of a learning curve to it, but only because there is such a plethora of ways you can put this product to work! I am currently using it as both a MIDI keyboard in Garageband and Ableton Live, and as a MIDI controller in Ableton Live. It serves both functions very well. Extremely well built, this thing can handle being thrown in my backpack when i'm on the go. Very reliable, haven't ever experienced any issues with it not responding as well as it did day one out of the box. Looks and Feels like a high-level piece of equipment. Strong, sturdy, reliable, but playable.
I was in need of a mini keyboard controller and thought I'd give the qunexus a chance even though I knew it had key pads. However, it is just an average pad controller in my opinion. It does have some great things going for like having MIDI, CV, and iPad compatibility allowing to work with just about any music app along with other great features such as pressure sensitivity, tilt action, LED feedback, and polyphonic aftertouch and great build quality which are admittedly hard to find in a controller this size. However it does have its downsides in that the tiny pitch bend button at the left end of the device is pretty useless. Also, I didn't find the channel rotation feature to be all that particularly useful though I could see how some might find it fun to experiment with. Plus even though it offers a lot in terms of modulation, it would have been nice to have a proper modulation control of some sort even if it was just a mod button as well as other cool features such as a built-in arpeggiator and step sequencer. (Sorry it just has LED feedback, don't let the some of the videos out there fool you into thinking it does, especially some of the NAMM videos.) Also, I don't feel as if these pads are well suited for playing melodic lines and chords. A great controller with great potential but kind of lacking in some respects with regard to performance features. Also, bear in mind that in order to use this with an external MIDI devices and CV devices you need to buy additional accessories. Plus it would have been nice if it came with some software/sound content to help get you started. For the price I just found it to not be worth my time. If you don't mind playing melodic material and chords with a pad controller then this may be for you. If not, I recommend you look at some of Akai's latest offerings. Again, not a bad MIDI/CV controller, but kind of an average one.
