The Best Control On Synthesis

"More than I expected!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I recently purchased this awesome keyboard from zZounds music and have to say I am thrilled with it. I've heard some say the action is too heavy and others say it's too light. I've been playing my whole life and even though it may be a tad on the heavy side it plays beautifully. The key feel and sensitivity response are perfect. Out of the box and set up took me just over an hour. I'm using sonar platinum and have had no problems at all. I've yet to really dig into the control features and pads/knobs etc. but all I wanted really was a good quality controller that felt like a real piano. I got that and then some. Thanks again zZounds music for all that you do. Very satisfied.
Musical Background:
