I bought this for my sons 21st, loves it as he makes music in his spare time.
If you are wanting a midi controller that offers editable faders and buttons to control VST articulation and DAW controls, nothing comes close at this price level.
ideal for what i want to do
Keyboard works perfectly and is everything I needed from a keyboard I've only rated it 3 because sone of the free software was not compatible with my macbook pro that is less than a month old ???
Very happy with the product!
