*extremely* well built. Everyone knows when they are holding a quality product, and this would be one of those extreme examples. Its a metal frame, and has some weight that gives you the impression that you're holding something solid. Even the packaging is top notch. I can imagine someone doing an "unboxing" video after receiving this device ;-) The pad bed are very interesting to touch, and feels a bit like a durable silicone substance. You can't feel the sensors or anything hard through the raised areas (the "keys"). These markers are only to give you a strong idea where the pitches are. I play violin, and I must say that this machine likewise requires a good "ear" to stay in tune in certain pitch bendable settings. However learning to get a handle on the pitch, at least for me, took only a matter of days. The sound library, Equator, is awesome in that it works well with limited latency and has unusual patches that take advantage of the "5 dimensions of touch" this device offers. I think this Equator software is very decent quality. I've tested the software on Mac and Windows, with various different processors and amounts of RAM. It works great with all of them.
1) bluetooth midi.
First of all, if you don't have a Mac, you don't have this option anyway. Maybe one day there will be this option for Windows, but i think none of us are used to this concept as its still a frontier for future exploration. If you have a Mac though, you will have the option to play this device wirelessly via bluetooth.. this bluetooth option connects fast (in like a second) on both Mac PCs and iPads (i've tried both). However it will also disconnect randomly for unknown reasons, even if your keyboard is right next to the host device. That's definitely a warning for anyone considering a live performance with this machine. Don't use the bluetooth feature for a performance. This is better for practice, and you will get disconnected. I think we still have a ways to go with bluetooth midi, and that time is not today. It's more like a gimmick for the time being.
this device will tire your hands in the first few days. its a cool concept, but I think it has its role for certain types of music. Don't think you're going to play some fast two-handed intricate piano piece with this 25-key keyboard. Not only is the number of keys a limit, but also the special keys themselves. This rubbery type of key is best used for what you see demo'd - pitch bending of lead phrases or some simpler chord-based pads. It is not a piano, and the best way to approach this machine is to understand that it does best in certain areas, and not in others. This is true for any instrument.
