Great, but not a good travel companion
on October 2, 2013
I'm loving this controller. It has presets for your DAW, although some require an update patch (Reason). The semi weighted keys feel good and the solid body will hold up to moderate abuse.
Unfortunately, as everyone else has said, the pads are squishy with no spring to them, but they don't detract enough for someone (like me) who doesn't use pads often.
My biggest problem with the MPK25 is that it's huge for a 25 key. It's too boxy and heavy for portability, if you're looking for more of a travel companion than features check out the mini instead.
