"Beautiful Board BUT!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This honestly breaks my heart. I was so excited to receive this controller. It looks absolutely stunning! Feature set is amazing and it's a full 88 key hammer action board, what's not to love? Upon unboxing truly was amazed but then I began to play it and the keys were definitely on the extra heavy side (Heavier than any piano I have played and was surely a workout when playing faster pieces) but I could let that slide. Ran into some glitchy issues with my sustain pedal however, Arturia's support got me all taken care of (AMAZING SUPPORT!), as with any software based solution I expect to have to deal with a couple of abnormalities from time to time BUT then my less than a month old board was getting a stuck key (the 3rd C#/Db) and honestly It was probably just my copy of this board. I assume for $900 this is not a common issue but because of this I had to return my unit. If it wasn't for the sticking key then this would have been a 4 star board due to the heavy action. Long story short, Loved it for the features and aesthetics but playability unfortunately was a no go.
