Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Fairly light weight, not quite as sturdy as the Yamaha or Roland products I have worked with. The keyboard action is great, light and fluid, the best semi weight I have worked with, nice aftertouch. The touchpads are sketchy in my opinion. Satisfactory for $400 non-factory sealed. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The best feature is the keyboard itself, I would add better mapping of software instrument parameters, the auto-mapping of the software instruments is haphazard at best and the aftertouch always does basic tremolo if anything. So many possibilities... I will have to do all the mapping myself if I want to get the most out of this. Considering the possibilities of Logic's Sculpture, the auto-mapping is a joke. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? After downloading additional software update, hypercontrol worked for the mixing board but extremely limited mapping of software instruments. I know I can do the mapping manually but I bought this so I wouldn't have to map every parameter, oh well. General Your general opinion of this product. I can't complain for the price I paid but this is not worth MSRP without far more thorough mapping of the software instruments. Value Was this item an overall good value? As I said, the non-factory sealed is the way to go, this is not worth $600. I doubt the Novation is any different , I actually look forward to doing the hours and hours of work to map the software instruments.
Best MIDI Keyboard On The Market For The Price!!!
