It is good to play
I'm going to say this straight up. YOU CANNOT GET A BETTER FULL SIZE KEYBOARD IN THIS RANGE!! . I got this about a month and a half back and i must say the experience has been quite smooth overall. Modulation wheels are a bit wobbly and the keys might feel a bit hard at first but you can't really complain when you're on a budget. There might be some creaky sounds when you try to carry it around so i definitely won't recommend this to be used for frequent gigs but it works perfectly if you've got one fixed spot to settle it down.Overall, i'm pretty happy with the product and kudos to bajaao for excellent packing and delivery
It is wonderful keyboard for the studio. At this price range it is too good....semi weighted keys are amazing...highly recommended..
Features like velocity sensitive and synth action keys give smooth sound. You can connect it with your Ipad and create your own music. Highly recommended.
I'm a classically trained pianist recently introduced to the wonderful world of midi based music production. needed a full range keyboard with good piano feel keys and the MAudio Keystation 88ES Semi-Weighted USB MIDI Controller fits both my requirement and budget. its a pleasure playing and composing a variety of music styles using this. the keyboard feels solid and durable and has m-audio world class quality all over it. absolutely no problems in terms of compatibility with any software or operating system. appreciate the way bajaao took care in packing this product. hope to buy a mini controller soonas well. thanks.
