I enjoy this. It is great for my first midi. It feels while and it is easily compatible with fl studio. I prefer this over an mpk mini
The keyboard is well made considering the price and has proved very flexible in use. I am using it with Mixcraft 8 and while there is no 'native' integration with this Daw it is quite easy to program the integration once you are familiar with the software.
I have purchased three midi controllers from three different makers over the past 2 years. This one in particular was a gift for my son, although I did try it out with him for a while after he opened it. Thus, my opinions are on that short use.
Compared to the other two midi controllers I own (Akai MPK249 and NI Komplete S 49 MK2) the hardware of this controller is not as nice. However, it is also MUCH less expensive, so that should be expected. Compared to other midi controllers in this price range, the hardware seems about the same as others. So, more or less a wash IMHO.
Software / DAW integration:
This is where Nektar products shine in my opinion. If your DAW is on the list of supported DAWs, then the integration really helps make this controller far more usable than most other controllers. I have heard that Moog and other high-end controllers in the $2k price range have great DAW integration as well, but I wouldn't know. From what I saw and from what my son has told me, it automatically maps the transport and smart controls in Logic ProX to the rotary encoders, and maps the faders to the mixer controls. Very nice compared to what most midi controllers provide out of the box.
Compared to my Akai MPK which has virtually no DAW integration, this is MUCH better. Compared to my Native Instruments Komplete S49 MK2, the DAW integration is about the same. (If you know about NI S49 MK2, you know the main point is integration with NI Komplete software, not really the native DAW instruments. In this regard the Nektar's integration with stock Logic instruments is better than my NI S49 MK2).
Let's face it, unless you're a professional musician performing on stage, software integration is what really makes a midi controller useful, so in that case this is one of the best priced options you could make IMHO.
First of all, The shipping was delayed due to holiday rush but that shouldn't affect my review as I got pleasantly surprised when I hooked up this midi controller to my computer.
Registration process was simple and intuitive. didn't even read the manual. downloaded driver and my god.
- Logic X and Cubase integration are amazing. It has VST integration, mixer integration, track control integration, and of course full midi.
- Keys are fine. keybed spring action needs some time to get used to specially if you are like me and used to play with piano.
- VST controls is amazing and programmable
- It does a very good job even as a mixer controller with 8 track full control.
- The pad control was another surprise. not only it is responsive and has configurable pressure sensitivity but you can use it for different things not only drum pad.
I am still exploring all the things this little affordable midi controller does but boy Nektar did a fine job here. Five star for sure.
I got this over a month ago for use with FL Studio. It does an outstanding job.
The keys feel sturdy and compare favorably to my upright piano. I've observed the velocity of the MIDI notes and the LX49+ appears to accurately transfer the attack with which I'm playing. The knobs, sliders, wheels and pads are also sturdy and track very well.
The tutorial supplied by Nektar to get set up on FL Studio was fast and easy. I'm also loving how many features are packed into it if a person wants to go deep into personalizing it for their use with the DAW.
