Comment:

The keys are just a little tight.
Probably a matter of habit.
In all other respects they are good

Comment:

I’m very disappointed during the quality with this keyboard. It had broken at the point in which the real keyboard connects to the module because of the buttons and whatnot on it whenever it first arrived. Now I have the idea behind this, demonstrably Icon are incredibly desperate to manufacture their keyboards since cheaply as you possibly can them together which they just make a set of modules and a couple of keyboards of different types and just screw. Great the theory is that, however in training the screws mounting the two together are simply far too weak and you wind up with a fail point. I got another one from Thomann (genuinely, a refund would was chosen by me personally but there you get), only to discover that I can not also get the buttons to work alongside my DAW. Well at the very least the fundamental functions such as the pitch wheel and switch that is octave work. Plus it does just take a great deal up less room on my desk. But overall, I wished I’d ordered something else like an M-Audio.
