    First of all, I am not a gigging musician that travels a lot. I play at a church in my rig is stationary all the time. With that being said, the build quality of this piece is absolutely fantastic. I don’t use it with the Mableton software, but it is a perfect controller for Mainstage.

    With the sliders, I can independently change the volume of each of my voicings and modify the sound in infinite amount of ways through the pads and knobs. Action is fine for us synth key player, but don’t expect a piano style key weight.

    I honestly have been using it for over 3-4 months now and I have nothing bad to say about it

    If you use ableton, get this keyboard. Get the 61 version too, it is smaller than you think and it is very light so portability is not a problem. Keys feel good, they aren’t weighted but they certainly are not cheap $30 keyboard keys. It is powered via USB so I don’t know why there is the option to buy a separate power source but it is unnecessary. The sliders are amazing, they have good weight to them, you can see their value 0-127 on the light up screen (along with the knows and mod wheel). The automapping is very nice too, although i have had one slight problem with it. When you use the keyboard to switch which MIDI track you are on it arms that track but doesn’t disarm the track you left. But other than that I have 0 complaints

    The keys feel nice and the pads, faders and knobs offer a full integration with Ableton live (That also comes bundled on its lite version).
    There’s almost no latency, or just as expected with any midi controller.
