            I bought this controller to replace an older 66 key keyboard. The Q25 is small enough to fit under my DAW shelf and works great with my softsynths.

              I wanted a midi controller with no bells or whistles for a decient price. It does what it is supposed to do. Does not come with a power supply which would be nice for direct 5-pin midi connections without a computer and the only place I could find one was radio shack.

                This is one of 3 controllers that I use. All of which are MIDIed to rack synths. The action of the keys are great and getting the hang of program changes isn't hard either. A very nice addition for anyones rig. I have always liked Alesis' approach to keybeds and buttons. I even used to have an old Alesis MMT-8 sequencer back in the day!!!

                  I am professional composer and sound designer and I needed an extra keyboard for Mod and CC controls. Plugged this thing in and my CoreAudio and Logic 9 instantly recognized it and I was at work in seconds. Love that!

                    Nice unit and fun to use.
                    We had some issues with one PC. The unit was not recognized. Probably a USB driver issue. Tested on a different PC, no problem; same on a Mac, it worked fine.

                              Alesis has a winner when it comes to a small easy to use keyboard. Built with professional feel and low on your budget. The keys have a nice feel for synth and piano. The Mod and Pitch Wheels with aftertouch make this stand out from the rest of the the small keyboards.
                              Built in midi and USB make this a great add-on to any midi gear or recording to your favorite DAW on a laptop. Works great with any IOS Core Midi app on the iPad using the Apple Camera Connection.

                                    Simple, functional, and required no drivers to be installed. I use this because I run Logic Pro on my macbook and needed a portable keyboard. I can't handle mini keys so the full-size keys are great.
