Some comments from people who come to the forum about this model:

Comment:

Really nice instrument. Keys have actually great quality, good feeling, action and it’s comfortable to play. Faders and pads also great.
That is my very first experience with delicate modulation and pitch tires. So, it’s not hard to use and the precision is extremely well. Great innovation.
This keyboard is truly the next step to iRig keyboards. Compact sized and very effective! Recommend as one of the midi controllers that are better to purchase.

Comment:

Lot of pc software included, amazing midi, I really recommend this
