Customer Reviews


Very expressive midi controller, with tons of features.
Smaller than you would think, feels built to last. The keys are more like the pads on the NI Maschine series than a conventional keyboard, and similarly respond well to velocity channel and polyphonic aftertouch, but also have a tilt function - adding yet more expressiveness. Easy to set up, and added bonus of CV in/Out (yet to try).

Decent no-frills editor, albeit only one MIDI CC function can be assigned to each control type, a shame but understandable. The pitch bend sends standard 14bit MIDI but the pads only support 7 bit so tilt pitch can sound quantised on larger range pitch but not a deal-breaker. It would have been nice to be able to assign MSB LSB pairs to the pressure/tilt functions, for smoother filter control for example, but small movements do still translate well so again, no cause for concern, and most midi controllers stick with basic 7 bit CC data.

All in all, a great bit of kit for bringing expressive control to software and hardware MIDI and pre MIDI synthesisers.
