"The BEST Midi Controller/Keyboard EVER!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned many midi keyboards and controllers and I have to say.. this thing is the absolute king! The build is so solid, the keys feel great, and it looks stunning! The ability to map scales to keys makes for a great learning/compositional tool. And the sequencer is a beast! I haven't had this much fun crafting sequences since the Arturia Beatstep. Sequencing with the SL MK3 is very fun and intuitive, and can I just mention how VISUALLY awesome it is sequencing several things across multiple zones!? LIGHTSHOW!!!
