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

Comment:

I have actually smaller hands, and also this keyboard has slim tips… feels like an amazing match, appropriate?

Pros:
1. Slim secrets (I love slim keys!). Usually I barely reach an octave. On this I may also reach a 10th!
2. It’s lightweight and small, in the event that’s your thing.

Cons:
3. Velocity sensitiveness is extremely bad, it is almost impossible to try out any such thing with any expression and persistence. I’ve tried most of the velocity settings in the KORG KONTROL Editor.
4. The secrets need to get ALL the real means down for a the signal to join up. You will miss an entire large amount of records if you should be playing runs, arpeggios or any such thing which isn’t slow and needs phrase. Getting ppp, pp notes or any peaceful records the tips has to be pressed REALLY, REALLY gradually to point of being completely unplayable.
5. Garbage grade cheap plastic build, maybe not well worth the funds.

It’s not good even for pads, rhodes or synths. The velocity that is poor kills this thing. It is essentially unusable for certainly not banging basic chords.
