Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
i bought this because it looked like a great controller for the included software. i'd say it's a nice kb. feels better then a standard 49 key m-audio cheapie. the included software is great and the tight integration of the keyboard controls with the software is fantastic. for me this is a keeper and i'm selling off my other controllers and keyboards since i only need one good one to control software synths.
