    Alesis V25 reviews

    V25 25-Key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for your buck? Look no further! I have been making my electronic music for about two years now. As a professional musician, I have used Alesis products before. The price seemed almost too good to be true... But lets get to it... Out of the box, this midi keyboard feels solid, all be it, light in weight. The construction seems of higher quality. The pads have a nice rubber coating, and don't have the cheap feel of some other units in this price range. The keys (25 of them) have accelerometer ability, adding a nice aspect to creating music. A single USB chord serves as the power, and the data connection. The nobs are also of nice quality. Pros- Great construction, ease of use, seems like a pro midi controller. Cons- The software isn't useful at all. The light version of Ableton is limited, and there are better programs for the use of this midi unit. So expect to spent a few dollars on better, more user friendly software. All in all the unit has some great features, and is surprising given its price. I would highly recommend for the DJ that's just starting, right up to moderately experienced. It feels good, isn't too large, and would be a fantastic addition to your home studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few noisy keys I've had this for a couple weeks. It is my first foray into midi controllers so I don't have a lot to compare to or any expert knowledge to get too detailed. For a first midi keyboard I would say it's been a good value. They keys don't feel like a grand piano or a nicely weighted keyboard, but are fine for simple use. It works properly and the registration for Abelton Live Lite is great. It is an intuitive program and has been relatively easy to figure out on my own. The one issue I had was a few squeaky keys. With it being a relatively cheap keyboard I figured I'd take a stab at fixing the issue. there are about a dozen screws to remove, the case comes apart in two pieces revealing the keys and the springs that allow them to spring back into place after being depressed. I removed the troublesome springs with a screw driver, put a little 3-in-1 oil on them, rotated them before putting them back on, and I don't get any more squeaking keys. The issue is that the spring rubs on the plastic where they are seated. It took me about 30 mins to fix. This may be too much for most people but, for me, it was that or go through the effort of returning the keyboard because the noisy keys were too much to bear and were interrupting the creation process for me.
