I also use other hardware. So if you are looking for a real piano feeling midi keyboard this will leave you unsatisfied, plus the keys are too heavy to use it for your production if you are into hip hop. The features are good. M-Audio Keystation Pro This happens every time I sit down and play it, but it only happens the first time you strike the key and then it is fine and its not all the keys, but quite a few.

If you’re looking for a real piano feel, buy another instrument. As for channel and patch selection, that is also something you have to assign with a program, at least thats how I did it I use mainstage, and if you are a m-aufio user, so should you because it rocks!!!
M-audi also works great for controlling keeystation modules if you want to use this on the go. The manual is small and pretty much covers all the things you need to know about this keyboard. But it has pretty much everything else you could want.
You can also ad sustain pedals to this board as well. The manual that came with it was pretty sad actually, Not to mention the software that came with my version was corrupt and i never did get to try it. I highly suggest this as a smart buy for anyone using Reason software.
We Are Numbers 9- A match made in heaven. It is usb bus powered which is very helpful. Works well with Digital Performat 4.

This keyboard is amazing for synths and pretty good for organs because of the ungodly amount of knobs and buttons and sliders.
I have used some of the other, m-auxio, M-Audio MIDI keyboard controllers, but this one takes the cake by far, as it is the most complete and has a great feeling keyboard. The playing feel is heavier than a synth but not too heavy, which means you can reach the highest velocity level without having to hammer on the keys. Now I don’t mean keytation like there is gunk in them, I mean there is a little extra resistance when you first hit the key.
It is very difficult to make a m-aueio sound it tends to make things sound harder than you hit it. It has weighted keys, which makes it feel more like a real piano, and while it has a ton of parameters, I usually don’t end up using too many of them as I like to control my virtual instruments within the box.
I made a pun. Just plug it in and start hitting keys, pretty much.

I have experimented with different built-in velocity curves but the problem persists. The only cons are: I’ll give it a 9 since the faders aren’t motorized like I hoped. Originally posted on FutureProducers. The keyboard is also amazingly light when you take m-auio account that the keys are semi-weighted.
Those looking for a professional MIDI controller to use either in the studio or in a live setting should definitely look at this unit. But I bought a demo device and I’m expecting to get a new one. The several velocity curves provide different feels depending on the sound you’re using. What I don’t like about it is I have noticed some poor craftsmanship. Nice hammer action keys, pretty sturdy built controller. The Korg’s key action was actually a little lighter which I didn’t m-audii like but despite that, the keyboard had a great feel and I could fly on that thing.

Assigning knobs and buttons is generally a thing you do with whatever programs you are using. The biggest problem I have encountered is the velocity sensitivity is a little substandard.
The keyboard seems well built.
