    Great for a beginner musician/producer as myself!

    I love the V49 from Alesis! The keys are nice, big and wide enough for my fingers. I like the drum pads especially because they light up when you press them! It doesn't have too many buttons on it which makes it easier for me to use. I will tell anybody that the Alesis V49 is great for me!

    Great gear

    Perfect for my needs. I'm using it with a Mac. Works great.

    Decent MIDI Keyboard

    I was pleased with the overall quality and performance of this unit. It fits well with my rig, and the keypads are a handy addition.

    The key weight has a texture that I am getting used to. It's stiffer than an organ, but without the bounce of a piano. Keys are a secondary instrument for me, so this hasn't wrecked my experience - just something to which I will adapt. Nice keyboard!

    Poor sensitivity

    The velocity sensitivity is really bad, a very soft press of the keys does not register notes most of the time, and to get a full 127 velocity you have to slam on the keys really hard to the point that playing dynamically is impossible. Returned the keyboard to try something else, which was really easy due to the great customer service at Sweetwater.

    Poor Quality

    I bought this cuz it looked like the best size for my desk. More and more keys will get a squeaky noise over time. Looks a lot better then what it really is. I would definetly get something else besides this for a mobile controller. I own 2 other digital pianos, save your money and get something else.
