Nice gear, but the keys could be better...
Works really great as a controller surface in both Logic Pro X and in Propellerhead's Reason 10 that I use, but the quality of the keys feels a bit on the cheap side. Not accurately aligned in height and just feels too light and cheap for a Nektar product. But it functions great as is expected from Nektar, and the DAW integration is one of a kind.
A variety of controls (wheels, faders, knobs, buttons, pads, etc.), a clear layout, keys feel decent. Only complaints include that it isn't natively compatible with Ableton (you can use it, it just requires additional setup) and no 5-pin DIN connections, both of which were features I overlooked when I bought it. But I am happy with it. I appreciate that the knobs have labels suggesting what controls they should be assigned to, it makes it feel more like a hardware synth rather than a totally blank slate where you are left trying to commit to memory which control you assigned to which knob...
