Compact Controller with Real Key Feel

Loaded with full-sized, synth-action keys, the V25 USB MIDI keyboard controller is perfect for using with virtual instruments, plug-ins, and other applications. You get the feel of large keys with a square front in a compact controller. Eight backlit, velocity- and pressure-sensitive LED pads let you tap out rhythms, trigger loops, and play synthesizers. A quartet of assignable knobs and buttons give you the power to map almost any function of your plug-ins to a tactile controller. Add that to the pitch and mod wheel, and you have a controller that's ready to take charge of your software. A single USB cable sends MIDI data and provides power to your keyboard. It also includes Ableton Live Lite 9 and a Software Preset/Parameter utility. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer for more information on the Alesis V25 USB MIDI keyboard controller.

Alesis V25

This controller is a must buy. It's built solid and the keys feel realistic. If you're looking for quality without the big price tag then this is the controller to get.
5/5

For Beatmakers!!

I've own a lot of controllers over the years and this one is the best so far. For the price the quality of the keyboard is top notch compare to Akai MPK 49 series. Before this controller my best board was the Axiom 61, I dare to say this 25 key is a well worth the upgrade.

Good deal for the $$$

The quality of the keyboard feels like something in mid price range and not something for less than $100. The keys are a bit stiff, but other than that it works great. just beware of the protective plastic tape when unpacking. Its stuck on there very tight.

It's a very useful tool, but...

not good at sensitivity/velocity

Alesis V25 25-key USB MIDI Controller

Very stylish keyboard. I loved the way it looked with my other gear. I opened the box, downloaded the drivers and was creating within 10 mins. The keyboard also has a lot of resources on the internet to help you discover the full functionality/potential. Which is very important. The only downside of this keyboard is the key sensitivity. No matter what parameter I chose for the key sensitivity, I still couldn't get it to accurately represent my velocity. And I found myself manually drawing individual note velocity. Which was annoying and time consuming to say the least.
