After having this controller for about 3 months now....I have to say, I love playing this thing. They weighted keys are great! I have been playing for about 30 years and have been through my share of keyboards and midi controllers. The navigation took a little getting used to as well as the stick controls, but I sincerely enjoy playing this board.I only wish that there were some more integration to the DAW as far as pads and slider controls but, I use an AKAI APC40ii to control Ableton. Once you learn the setup with the SL Studio Editor, it is a great asset. The documentation and online support could be a little better though.For $499, I am thinking about getting another one just to leave at my bands rehearsal room....not that transporting this is bad. It is pleasantly light to have such a good feeling keybed!
