  • Great to get started and great for the price

    As reviewed by Alexander on 3/21/2015

    First I purchased the es version of this controller. This is a great controller for the money. I got mine on sale for $50.00. The Ignite software is very easy to use. So this is the place to start. Ableton Live Lite is a little bit of a learning curve ( depending on your skill set. Easy set up. The software gives you a nice set of controls for changing the sound of each voice. A+

    I recently got this product and I'm not disappointed. If you're looking for something that is not big and bulky and extremely light, then look no further. The fact that it only has 49 keys really doesn't interfere with playing at all. Though the keys are very light and can take some getting use to if you're use to heavy keys. Mine came with Ableton Live Lite and it is okay if it's the only thing you have. It has a lot of sounds but they aren't the best to use live, other than that it is pretty fun to mess around on. This keyboard is so simple that it would pretty much be impossible to make a technical error live. I really think this thing is great if you're looking for a slightly smaller and lighter MIDI that isn't complicated and great live or recording.
