"VERY EASY!!!...Good controller, no support...Bought this controller for casual mixing and it works out well....also wish it had some more knobs knocked off two stars for limited support on most software."See more

"Its benefit is its draw back....Gladly returned it to B&H n bought Taktile- the best hybrid keyboard....So though I was happy I could play piano witn iPhone- it is so small that I rather record my melody ideas on piano apps....May be iRig is good for no players or DJs but not a pro gear for live n studio performance."See more

Assignable transport and directional controls allow for playing, performing, and recording with music software without using a mouse or trackpad. If you've got your own sustain pedal, you can plug it in via the 1/4" sustain pedal input. Lightweight and durable, the controller is USB-powered, class-compliant, and supports USB-MIDI connectivity. Additionally, the unit supports iOS connectivity using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (available separately), enabling you to perform and compose with audio apps on an iPad or another iOS device.
The 49 MK3 comes with a variety of software, including DAWs such as Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition and Ableton Live Lite. Also included is AIR Music Technology Xpand!2, a multitimbral all-in-one synthesizer which houses up to four sounds to help you create your own unique VI patches.
Keyboard sounds can be achieved via three included AIR Music Technology soft-synths: The Mini Grand, with seven acoustic piano sounds, and the Velvet, which gives you five vintage electric piano sounds. Additional software includes Skoove and Melodics. You also get 2GB of Touch Loops material to foster your creativity. The keyboard comes with a USB Type-A to USB Type-B cable.

"Great choice for a beginner!...The MPK Mini has velocity sensitive drum pads, with a great price tag, but there was no control function with Ableton Live....I was flip flopping between the Akai MPK Mini and the Akai APC 25, but then discovered that the Launchkey Mini was the best of both worlds....The Launchkey Mini blows both of them out by having the ability to control Ableton Live and launch clips with Incontrol, keeps the velocity sensitive pads, and is a really affordable price for how much it's capable of."See more

"Love it...Very neat....I have read elsewhere that Korg worked on improving the keys in nanoKEY2 over the previous generation which really sounded as if you were typing on a PC!!...At the lowest price I could find for a controller keyboard, the Korg nanoKey2 is very impressive."See more

Six transport buttons are also on hand, and these can be assigned to external controllers as well as your DAW. These buttons, which include rewind, play, fast forward, loop, stop, and record functions, can transmit control-change messages or MIDI machine-control messages.
Four banks allow you to choose between different settings simply by navigating with the bank buttons. Included with the unit is downloadable software which allows you to edit and change the assignment of most control functions. When setting up the device to correspond to various commands in your DAW, the large, front-facing knob will help you adjust program changes.
The unit draws its power and communicates with your computer over USB. Compatible with Mac and Windows computers, the PMIDIPD30 requires no drivers for installation. A USB cable is included.

The ring-worn accelerometer works just like traditional Hot Hand devices, changing assignable effect parameters along a 3-axis plane. Thus, moving your hand in one direction can modulate a specific effect, while moving it in another can affect an entirely different parameter. The USB device plugs into your computer or compatible host sequencer and translates the motion-sensing control into MIDI messages.
The whole setup can be configured and worked to your liking with an included software editor, which allows you to select specific ring axes, adjust the range and depth of modulation, assign control signals for MIDI, choose MIDI-message types, and more. Indeed, with this software, you can change MIDI modes as well, accessing Continuous, Trigger Single, or Trigger Double, explained in the feature section. An included AC power supply charges the Li-ion battery nestled within the Hot Hand’s ring, giving you 6 hours of run time off a 1.5 hour charging period. No drivers are necessary to run the Hot Hand USB with Mac or Windows computers.
