THE FEEL / TOUCH OF THE KEYS (to me) is no different than a regular piano. The keys are nicely weighted. I would say this keyboard is the “KORG” of keyboards in its category. If you are used to playing a typical digital piano without weighted keys, you’re going to have to dig deeper to play a song on the Coda Pro. The glide is not as smooth. I asked a professional musician who is used to playing a Yamaha Midi and Yamaha DGX-650 keyboard to try out the Coda Pro, and his exact words were “It’s gonna take more effort to play the same songs on this keyboard than it does on mine. The keys are stiffer, so your hands will be working harder to get the same results”. He was saying that as a positive, indicating that the Coda Pro is comparable to the real thing.
NOW BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I GAVE UP MY BELOVED ALESIS KEYBOARD within a week because while it was one of the nicest keyboards I'd ever encountered, it didn't have the bells and whistles that I thought I could live without, but found out I couldn't. While it has different instrument settings, they are very limited when compared to the more popular keyboards. It also doesn't have built-in percussion beats. However, it does have percussion settings that will allow you to play your own beat manually. So you wouldn't be able to push a “percussion button” and play the keyboard simultaneously with an ongoing beat.
THE ACCOMPANYING SUSTAIN PEDAL WAS NOT IMPRESSIVE! While it does sustain, it doesn't hold the sound for long. For example, if you take your hands and go across the black keys over-and-over with the sustain pedal depressed, it won't have that "harp" sound. It sounds choppy because of the weakness of the pedal. The only way I found to make it sound a little more sustaining was to push the "reverb" button, which gives somewhat of an illusion of more sustaining power, but it still isn't strong enough to connect the notes to sound as smooth as a harp or a regular piano. As much as I loved this keyboard, my style of playing MUST have a strong sustain pedal. And while that may not be a deal-breaker for a lot of folks, it was for me. I have no idea if the sustaining ability lies with the specific pedal that came with it, or the keyboard itself. But over the years, I have yet to find a keyboard that has perfected this - until recently (keep reading)...
WHEN I GAVE UP THE ALESIS CODA PRO, I purchased a Yamaha DGX-660. I've had the DGX less than 24 hours of writing this review, but have played it for about 3-4 hours straight. The many features of the Yamaha are awesome. It has many built-in beats, voices, and even a feature that can display sheet music of what you're playing. The sustain pedal is one of the most high-quality pedals I’ve witnessed. It is only millimeters away from sustaining as an acoustic piano, but would only be obvious in a side-by-side comparison. There are way too many enhancing features to name that come with DGX-660. However, while the DGX sounds like an instrument whose company did an excellent job of MAKING it sound like a classic piano, the Alesis Coda Pro sounds exactly like a deep, RICH, actual acoustic piano. I believe a true piano-player would be able to tell the difference immediately, but the average Joe probably wouldn’t know the difference since they’re both nice sounds. It's kind of like on the Rocky movie when Apollo Creed told Rocky, "You fight great, but I'm a great fighter". The Yamaha did an extraordinary job of digitally making the DGX sound very much like a natural piano, but the Alesis Coda Pro has the exact authentic sound of a traditional piano.
SO IT JUST DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. If Alesis ever comes out with a keyboard that has the same bells and whistles as the DGX, I would probably sell my DGX in a heartbeat, provided the sustain pedal issue had been solved. I almost cried when I gave up the Alesis. I love its rich tone quality that the DGX simply doesn't have. So if you're just looking for a traditional piano to play with an awesome sound and great depth, the Alesis Coda Pro is it! But DO keep in mind the current sustain pedal issue. If you're looking for a keyboard that has a lot of "digital clarity" in the key tones and a variety of enhanced features that could enable you to make a good-quality CD, the DGX is a great, affordable choice. I am going to see how it goes for 30 days with the DGX-660 and decide whether or not I want to keep it. Had I not gotten the Alesis first, I would probably be a tad happier than I actually am with the DGX-660 because every time I play its Grand Piano sound, I mentally compare it to the Alesis’ Grand Piano sound, and there truly is no comparison quality-wise. However, both are highly recommended. Again, it just depends on what you’re looking for:
(1) The outstanding and rich quality of a real piano with limited enhancements and a less-than-perfect sustain pedal, or
(2) Good “digital” quality sound that emulates a real piano pretty nicely with loads of bells and whistles and a darn-near perfect sustain pedal.
The keyboard comes with an included power supply and pedal. The pedal is disappointing, however. It requires a lot of pressure to get it to play. I practically had to put my whole body weight on the thing to get it to work.
The keys are amazing! They are hammer action and feel like a real piano. They are tough to press, but that is a good thing in my books.
The included instrument selections are good, not a large variety (only 20), but I feel like there are good options.
Overall, a great product and I am very happy with my purchase. I would recommend picking up a different sustain pedal though.
Only thing to modify in the next version is the pedal. the effect is not really reflecting a piano pedal.
So pro's move on and go higher end. Will say it's good they designed in a 5 pin midi out connection, I only wish the KB MANUFACTURES would still incorporate this feature as well as a 1/4" audio out. Many of these companies are no longer offering these very critical interfaces, and that is really there total Bad! Alesis was smart and added these features and good for Them! Hence I give them a honest 3 stars for doing this, would of been lower without those features.
