You can even place your iPad to the left of the keyboard and use it as a lower octave. Not perfect, but it works pretty well.
I particularly like that it is USB powered so I don’t need any extra adapters or chords.
I know some other users have reported a delay between hitting a key and the sound coming out, but mine is perfect. I’m using it with a 9.7 inch iPad Pro so I’m guessing the processor is plenty powerful enough so there’s no lag.
Also, the weight of this is amazingly light. I can barely tell when I have it in my backpack.
Overall this is definitely a five-star item and I totally recommend it.
The ONLY issue I could possibly have with this is there's no way to adjust a velocity curve on the keyboard itself. That could be a big issue for someone using this keyboard to drive a sound module or other midi box directly because it would mean you have to hit the keys very hard. However, if using this with a PC this is no issue at all because you can just set the velocity curve in your software!
The only trouble I had was setting up the software. It's not plug and play. You have to download a file via another site, go into settings and direct it to said file and then it will make sound. It took me about 30 minutes of searching the web and watching a few tutorials on YT and finding the correct download link. Being a computer technician it was more of a hassle than anything but for an average user it might take a bit longer. Nevertheless it's well worth the purchase. A musician using aftermarket software probably wont have any problems with setup.
I plugged it in and it immediately worked with my programs. I am on Windows and I use Sibelius for music notation and Cubase for production.
For the price this controller was definitely worth it. Only 4 stars because:
-Modulation and pitchbend have no finesse or any way to control the rate of change. This isn't a huge issue.
-Volume knob is largely useless for me. I don't use MIDI data to control volume very often.
-Keys are stiff and black keys are noticeably stiffer than the whites. Not a huge issue in an production environment but would make live performance with this device difficult.

The keys are short and slightly narrower than my standard size keyboard, but only slightly. I was setting one note at a time, and apart from having to be a bit careful not to brush an adjacent note (just a case of getting used to the size) I had absolutely no difficulty. On occasion I had to check a note by hearing it in the chord, and I had no difficulty playing the chord with all 6 notes.
I'm glad to say that it was COMPLETELY plug-and-play compliant with both garage band and Finale (using an iMac less than 6 months old). I didn't have to select any midi device, the system just found it and I could start typing in using speedy entry right away. The only function I've used is the octave up or down -- usefully the little buttons change colour if you've pressed one (and change colour again if you press more than once) so you can see at a glance whether you're transposed or not. I could set all of the soprano, alto and tenor parts without shifting 8ve, and most of the bass. If I'm really picky I'd say the length of the keyboard is mildly annoying because I did have to use octave shift, but a lot less annoying than having to get my full-size keyboard onto the desk, and I could have bought a bigger midi controller for more money, so I can't complain about that. If you're likely to have to do a lot of 8ve shifting then get a longer keyboard. The range on this is 8ve below middle C to 8ve above plus a 5th (g).
I got the offer of the free trial period with some weird software that I didn't want, so didn't try it. The offer did come through though (by email, not in the box) -- some reviewers were annoyed they didn't get it.
So overall I think I've got a fantastic deal, and am so relieved I can leave this little thing plugged in all the time or just push it aside; no need for power supply (USB powered), and I barely notice it on the desk. If you just want to hammer in single-line music it's a godsend, and once I've got used to it I'll be as fast with this as I was with my big keyboard.
It's also worth noting that even when it did work, it would never work inside a virtual machine (Windows 10 x64 on Virtualbox). I got the USB device not recognised error there too, but it was every time. Other USB MIDI devices worked fine, so there's something badly wrong with these units.
If you have a small budget, this is worth the punt, just.
