Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (30 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great, space-saving controller."
Feature: Basic controller features - very good for what I needed it for - if you require more knobs/sliders they make different models. Ease of Use: Plugged it into my PCs (Vista and XP) both recognized it instantly, loaded the drivers automatically and I was using it in less than 5 minutes. Easy to switch octaves as yo play as well as sending MIDI volume. Quality: It will be fine if you don't plan on taking out and/or dropping it constantly. Feels a bit cheap but, solid enough for playing and recording at home. Value: I think it could cost a bit less, considering that you can buy its biggest brother (88 keys) for $179.00 online. Overall: Does what it's supposed to do without fuss and issues.
Style of Music: Pop/Rock/Latin/World/Jazz

"Nothing better for the price."
Sound: The key rig software it comes with is great. Capable of a lot of really good sounds. Feature: It is exactly what it claims to be. You have to understand what you need and if this will fill your need. This was a very low cost way to add some quality instrument tracks in my home studio. Ease of Use: Interfaced well. Software installed perfectly. I gave it a nine instead of a ten because the manual could be more informative and a lot clearer. Quality: Again, it is exactly what it says it is. I am not a concert pianist. If I were I wouldn't try to play a concert on this :-) But that is not what it's for, although I could definitely see using for some fill at a gig. I think with a case it would be ok. You have to take care of your equipment. Don't blame the manufacturer if you don't. I have a Martin acoustic guitar I have carried through ice sub zero winters and hot humid summers for ten years. It doesn't have a scratch. Value: If this is what you need, I truly believe there is nothing like it for the price. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to contact them. The Wow Factor: Nothing sexy. It is what it is and does what it claims well. Overall: It will work for me for some time to come.
Style of Music: Everything (and I mean everything).

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
