Nothing special about this keyboard, no cool features, no mod wheel, no pitch wheel, just used for playing around with notes to see what works. Alright value for money but nothing game changing.
This was the first keyboard I ever bought, it's perfect because it actually fits in my laptop bag, with my laptop and a bunch of other things. It's compact nature is great for traveling or for performances when you don't need a full range keyboard. To be honest, I really never used it before I started taking my gear out of my home, but now that I know it's so portable I use it all the time when I need to travel with my gear. I use it with Ableton Live.
Acquired mine from a local recording studio when they closed their doors. I had tracked on it before, and knew it could perform. What I didn't realize was how well it held up over the years. Thousands of sessions later, I have dropped it and tossed it around at home and it still works. Something inside is ratting around, but does not seem to affect the function. Seems well made to me. Four stars only because the range is so tiny. I use my Hammond XK-3c as a MIDI controller when I need more keys.
