Pros and cons

  • Thanks to the LCD screen, you can easily navigate through your presets and read useful information.

    Mr B. | 20 May 2021 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Added value through the weighted keys
    • Nice finish
    • Solid build quality
    • Many possibilities
    • Settings to be adjusted in software not well explained (also hard to find on google)
    • Pedal and stand to buy yourself

    Nice product, fast delivery and does exactly what is expected. A must to buy if you have some experience with music and want to take it to a higher level.

    Top product

    Louis | 18 December 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Nice, good build
    • Drum pads included and volume control very handy
    • Not all knobs are very well integrated with e.g. FL studio

    Was connected to FL studio within 10 seconds, with a tutorial on youtube of 1 minute, most buttons work fine with fl studio
