For the money, You cant beat itFor $99 how can you beat this midi controller. I had the Akia MPK Mini prior to this and it turned out to be a defective unit, so I tried out the Alesis. This is far better made, full size keys and great action. It does everything I need and for the price you cant beat it

The Alesis QX25!First off let me say this, .....I purchased this keyboard because I had just purchased the KRK Rokit 5s. To make a long story short, the KRKs are the White limited edition series which I purchased a few days b/f the keyboard. At this time, they had just got in the Limited edition white Ales is qx25, and had to have it!!!.....So far, amazing in build quality! Pretty heavy for a 25key midi/ keyboard, which is nice!!! I Now the look of this thing*****I would give it 11*s if I could, WOW!! This thing is absolutely Gorgeous!!!! And last, ( which if my fault ) I haven't really had the time to sit down and read the manual. Anyone looking to purchase this Keyboard, remember that it is made pretty much for assigning certain CC's ( if you will / ) meaning that it is not a plug and play keyboard, but the good thing about this is that, you actually can buy a 5v adapt. And run it single, pretty cool!! The other reason for this purchase was because I have the NI Maschine , which can become an awesome duo together with this keyboard! Thank you,

Excellent small KBThe only reason I knocked off half a star is the difficulty in finding clear instructions on using advanced features. Simply playing various soft synths on Mac or IOS* is easy but using the transport, knobs and buttons to send midi instructions can be confusing. I found info online about mapping the Q25 to Logic Pro (which also worked for Logic Express) but still haven't found how to map to the IOS apps like Beatmaker 2, except for the keys themselves. Still, for $99, it's a robust, well built essential tool for small studios.
(*needs apple's "camera connection" adaptor and a powered USB hub since the iPad does not put the 5 volts that a USB-powered device needs)
