Well, there are no comments on the keyboard yet. It touches on the new price point of M-Audio-in fact, for any truly weighted key keyboard. The other model I'm looking at is the Roland Juno DS-88, which sells for $1000, up 150%. The $400 keyboard does not have a corresponding keyboard. And the keyboard is uncommented, and the M-Audio has no outstanding reputation as a professional instrument. I have an oxygen 49 MKIV keyboard and I've been learning. I played guitar with my ears and began to learn music. For me, the keyboard was an epiphany that linked the notes on the page to the sounds I played. Oxy 49 is a speed key, but not a weighting key, and it doesn't feel like a piano at all. I want to learn with the expressive force I can feel in the piano keyboard that is completely missing on Oxy, plus all 88 keys of a piano to make learning more seamless. This keyboard is very heavy. It's big. I bought a Gator work package for it, and you must need something to store it safely. It weighs nearly 40 pounds. Light full-size weight and speed sensitive keyboard, but heavier than oxygen 49. These keys are a little stiff, but whether they adjust or I adjust, they release-these keys have a real piano keyboard feel. Sound is expressive, and pressing keys responds to stress and movement in a natural way. The keyboard is made of plastic and metal, and although I move it carefully to avoid hitting things, be careful what it should do.

Second update: the pitch wheel begins an unstable action. Contacted Nektar. There is a simple solution-to move the pitch wheel back and forth quickly. Seems to have solved the problem! If this doesn't work-they have another solution: send a new pitch wheel assembly, which they say is easy to install. That's good! So I'm very satisfied-Thank you Nektar, I'm going to restore my five stars! Original comment: very solid build-easy integration with your DAW. I have the flagship version of Komplete 11, working with Cubase and the Reaper. I'm using another keyboard workstation that doesn't easily integrate with Komplete. Nektar is a dream! I read a comment (not on Amazon) saying that the keys were about an inch shorter than the average piano. Maybe? I've been playing pop and rock piano since I was 8, and now I'm 60-it feels really good! Some people complain about black keys, but they feel good for me-speed feels even. Slider in organ drawer-flawless! Knobs connect to all aspects of your VST. It doesn't have a hammer action, so if you have to have that-it won't be what you want. But if you're looking for a board with 88 keys-it weighs less than 20 pounds. The cost is less than $350. This is your axe!

No matter how you slice it, this keyboard is very valuable. First, it is properly packaged and contains a USB cable in the original box. As soon as you insert it, Logic Pro X recognizes it. For money, you can't go beyond the feel of the keyboard. If you grew up playing the piano, it's important to have a keyboard that feels credible, especially if it has 88 keys. I have an 88-key MAudio keyboard that works, but it doesn't feel as good as this one. Keyboard noise is negligible, and once you turn on the speaker, you can't hear it at all. It takes only 5 minutes from unpacking to setting up and working properly, and the computer connection can be instantly recognized by Logic Pro X. Kurzweill's 88-key MIDI controller is probably the best MIDI controller I've ever played. But it's much more expensive. For less than $200, you can get a very similar feeling from the keyboard and a full-featured MIDI controller, which allows you to get the job done, but it also allows you to practice Bach. That's great!

This is my first MIDI controller, because I've just entered the world of digital music, and it's great for a beginner, and I got the full-size 88 keys, and the product comes with Ableton live (, and this is a PC Daw, and I have Mac, so I use GarageBand), XPand. this is my first MIDI controller, because I've just entered the world of digital music, and it's great for a beginner. 2 (a virtual instrument preset) and Sonivox octave (another virtual instrument exists), which you can easily download from the M-Audio website after registration. Without keyboard brackets or supporting pedals, you have to buy those yourself. The key station is very easy to use, all you have to do is plug it into your computer USB port, open the keyboard, open your DAW, and that's all you have to do, at least for me. The keys are half-heavy, full-size, and they're pressure-sensitive, so the volume does increase as you play harder, the keyboard weighs a little more than 15 pounds, or that's what it feels like when I lift it. All in all, I'm glad I bought this. I actually decided to buy it after seeing someone else use it. Now I play this every day, and so far it's great! PS: for all who are not familiar with the MIDI controller, here is a little information, the MIDI controller is not a keyboard, they do not produce their own sound, it is like a game controller, only when you plug it into the game console can work, and then it can control the characters in the game, just like the MIDI controller, its function is to plug it into the computer, it can control the virtual instruments in the DAW system (such as GarageBand, If you use Mac, there are many.

For the price range, I gave the X8 major 5 stars now, because it did exactly what I bought it at the price and more. I only have a month or so, so after a year of use, I might come back and post another comment. I need a MIDI keyboard to take advantage of the "double keyboard" feature of my Nord Stage 3. I considered many other 88-key MIDI keyboard products and read as much as possible. All of these have different comments, including this one, so any purchase has a risk factor. Only the MIDI keyboard does not have a built-in sound generator, so it cannot be used as a stand-alone instrument without a computer, or in my case, as another keyboard with dual keyboard MIDI functionality. For about $50 more than my next possible option, the X8 major does have its own sound generator with a wide selection of sounds (tones) and can be used as a tool for its own use. It also has a set of programmable percussion pads that work well, which is an extra feature for me. Size (using tape ruler)-slightly less than 53.5 inches left and right, 8.5 inches back and forth, table to knob height of about 3 inches. The width of the button is standard, and the white button is about 7 inches. The white button is about 5.5 inches long and the black button is 3.5 inches long. Power supply-X8 is powered by USB cable (included). You do not need to plug it into the computer USB port to power on. It can be plugged into the appropriate USB wall charger / power supply. There's nothing in the manual.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. After spending a year trying all the MIDI keyboards and digital pianos I could get, when I felt that, I fell in love with it. My main piano is a medium-sized full-size upright piano, so I want something digital to capture the feeling and physical nuances of the real piano. Although the VPC1 movements are slightly lighter than the fairly heavy buttons on my piano, they are also expressive, but they feel right. They don't feel like imitating a piano, but they feel like a different piano. The touch curve mapping software that comes with the keyboard is also a great addition. I'm still adjusting the settings to get what I want, but thankfully, it provides multiple settings for the master library. Another good aspect of VPC1 is the surprisingly quiet operation (although the pedals may require a little lubrication). One of the main reasons for looking for a keyboard like this is that I want to be able to play and practice at any time without disturbing the neighbors living below me, which is perfect and has only drawbacks. The top of the wood is slightly round. It's not as bad as some people say, but it's annoying enough that I have to come up with a different solution to put my laptop on it. In addition, the keyboard is equipped with a small music bracket connected to the two small holes on the back. I appreciate the idea, but this thing is too old, it makes it very difficult to read music. I ended up buying a mom.

I really wanted to like this keyboard and out of the box, I did, at least physically speaking. The body is heavily constructed and weighty, which was nice, and rare among most midi controllers. The problem is that the built in, analog sounds were sub-par and sounded strange; heavily reverbed and eerily quiet. Additionally, the control panel is extremely confusing and the manual (as well as website) offered zero information and absolutely no support, whatsoever. The keys felt nice. If this company rethought the digital interface, rethought the onboard analog pads for better audio quality and output, and they offered a comprehensive manual, they might have a highly competitive product on their hands. Until then, well, mine got sent back.

I have ordered this product three times. Here are my comments. + first comment first + I've had it for 2 hours, but I've returned to the following reasons. (no photo attached) 1. Some keys are too strong to press (difficult to press) and make an awkward sound when playing the piano. When I press a few keys, the depths are not similar to each other. Poor quality control! + Review the second key + I reordered and got it. The second is good, but when I was playing, I found some mistakes in the last note (C8). Please take a look at the first photo attached. Looks like there's something wrong with the spring inside. (about two weeks after I got it, I used it for about an hour a day.) because the key is in the last position, there will be no problem playing, but I'm worried that if this happens in the middle in the future, there will be a problem playing. In addition, some keys do not press the pressure very well (similar to the problems I found when I first ordered), but I hope I get used to it + my last comment on the third + I'm not 100% happy with the touch of my recently ordered keyboard, so I ordered it again. Today, however, as soon as I opened the box, the key (A8) was completely broken (see the second and third photos attached). The shipping box is fine. Therefore, I think it will be damaged by the impact in the delivery process, or the product will have problems in the manufacturing process. I'll return it tomorrow, and I've decided not to. No, no.

I'm going to make a preliminary comment because when I try to decide what to buy, I can't find much information on this keyboard. I need a keyboard to travel with as small and light a car as possible. I've been dragging my old Privia 310, but it just takes up too much space in the carton. I have found that my ipad Pro runs the Korg module and the Synthology ivory movement provides all the sound I need in a small bag. I ventured on the Midiplus X8 because it was the smallest and lightest 88 note controller I could find. It was built like an aluminum tank, a wooden end cover and a decent key. No music bracket, minimal input / output and what I call a mysterious control interface. I can't find a manual anywhere on the Internet. The Chinese website says to send your email and they will send it to you. All right. All right. All right. All right. No, I don't think I would do that.) This is not a weighted action-this is a fairly heavy spring action that can be practiced. So, my initial reaction after using it for a while: it plays very well, joystick modulation / bending control yes. All right. All right. All right. All right. Interesting. MIDI features can meet my limited needs. It is very compact and light (15 pounds +). So far, my only objection is that touch sensitivity is not very, very good, sensitive. Ivory provides multiple layers of speed data, but the keyboard does not respond very well to the softest level. Practice is OK, but it won't be cut because of the show. I got it.

I was looking for a keyboard controller for my production software because I didn't like the electronic button sound it produced. I wanted to actually play something and sound like it was played by a musician. So I went searching for cheap keyboards that had midi controls. My first one I bought was a cheap Casio WK-3800 that said it was general midi through USB. But it had a 32 bit software didn't work on my 64bit machine so that didn't work. So I decided to take the plunge and get a real keyboard workstation. The price on the top of the line studio workstations from KORG that I wanted were way too much for me at the time, so I started looking for a pro 88key midi controller with semi weighting. I didn't like any of the m audio controllers. This is the one I finally bought...I have a project studio I use this for, and it works as advertised- sometimes. I am extremely competent with studio electronics and computers, although I may be inexperienced when it comes to the software interfaces, but I couldn't get this controller to control the whole software packages like Reason 4 even though it has a preset for it. It had a big delay between the hit of the key and the playing of it, and even when I adjusted the latency it still did not work that well. It is a bit cumbersome to deal with, feels like it weighs 50+ lbs, so this isn't something you want to move around a lot. It has adjustability for days. It plays very well. One or two keys makes a hollow sound, but it feels no differe...
