A great keyboard!

I'm a little disappointed. It doesn't come bundled with Cakewalk SONAR LE software anymore, but it's still a great keyboard!

A nice product

Roland A-49 MIDI Keyboard Controller is a really nice little keyboard packing a lot of functionality. Especially useful with Integra7

The best

This is the best midi controller currently. It's more expensive than the other makes (m-audio, alesis etc) because it costs more to build. What you get is a first rate keyboard and great overall build. The pitch/trem stick is absolutely genius and offers a higher level of control/speed than the individual configurations. At [price] it's a steal. It's priced before our loonie dipped to 80 cents. Expect a price increase when they restock. Procrastinate if you enjoy higher prices.

Great little controller for the price

As the title says, this is a great little 4 octave controller for the price. The keyboard and controls are responsive - they don't at all feel cheap. It's USB-powered, and it takes up so little space that you can practically use it anywhere you'd like. Yes, more controller options would be nice, but that's not the reason you buy a keyboard like this - it's for the compact and convenient use of space.
