Alesis VI25

What a great little controller. I didn't expect much for the price but this is awesome. To start it is much more robust than it looks in the picture. It is larger than it looks too, i thought i would buy this for in front of my laptop its a bit too big for that, nothing a laptop stand cant fix though. The semi weighted keys are a good balance between weighted and synth action, they have substance to them and feel much more expensive than this controller was. The pads are a nice addition, and the aftertouch is great at this price point. The Alesis VI Editor software is excellent as well, it makes assigning the different buttons and knobs a breeze.Alesis simply did an excellent job with this controller and it has found a place in my studio where space is at a premium. If small is what you need, this is an excellent choice, and thank you Sweetwater for the exceptionally fast shipping.

Whether I'm in my studio or out with a client, the Alesis VI always exceeds my expectations. At only 7 lbs and less than 25" long, it's easy to transport and set up anywhere. With so many assignable buttons and knobs, I have complete control over my production. But even more valuable to me is its expressive qualities and overall feel. Full-size, semi-weighted keys let me feel just as at home as if I'm I'm sitting at a baby grand, and the velocity-sensitive pads give me dynamic range and the percussive feel that I need during a live performance.
