Customer Reviews

Perfect for your needs.4 A computer and a musical keyboard in one piece?! Neat. When I touched the keyboard I had a deception, the keys are very cheap, fragile and light, Ok for 49usd I could not expect any pro keys right ? Right. So if you are looking a musical keyboard to spend most of your time and execute masterpieces that is not for you. But if you are looking for a space saver musical MIDI keyboard that is very easy to configure and work good, you found it. Besides the the cheap touch of the keys, it works very well, all my midi soft synths worked with it, no problem at all. So it accomplished the mission! Great Product5 This is an excellent product, the fact that you can save space on your desk and play music simultaneously just blew me away. I have the Prodikeys DM working with my Windows XP PC and it also works with Reason 3.0 as a midi controller. The SAD news is that it's not compatible with Windows Vista, something everyone should know before purchasing this awesome dual functionality keyboard. I whish I had known, and Creative's response for a windows vista patch were not to keep anyones hopes high. Ultimately this product is fantastic if you have a windows xp pc. brings great fun; the bundled software alone deserves more than its price; far more than a toy for little kid5 I got this combo keyboard as a Christmas gift for a girlfriend and it turned out far better than we expected. Hardware-wise, it is not realistic to expect the plastic midi keyboard to feel like a grand piano but the build quality of the typing keyboard is exceptionally high. It is very solid and quiet when typing. The bundled software is very impressive. There are only 37 keys on the music keyboard but with the bundled software it can be easily expanded to a 109-key midi keyboard. The USB connection and software setup cannot be any easier and the record of the music playing is also extremely easy to do with the software without any additional setup on sound card. The music can be recorded in both mp3 format and wave format. There are hundreds of timbres you can play around with the software, with many really amusing sound effects. Ideal for geeks who like to write computer games themselves and want to add music and sound effects to the games. The rich set of the software is way more than just a library of timbres and easy recording. There's a learning mode which works somehow like Karaoke for piano playing. The music score will be showed on the screen, each note will be highlighted as the music plays. Under the music score there is a virtual keyboard and on the keyboard the correct key for the note at a certain time will be showed as pressed. I've never learnt to play piano but following this learning mode I started to play some simple pieces. There are quite a few other highly interesting features in the software too. And the user interface of the software is excellent too. The features are extremely easy to access and the UI looks clean and elegant. This is a great toy/tool which really delivers tons of fun to both kids and adults. The software alone deserves twice the price of the whole set. This product is without any question a great bargain and highly recommended to computer geeks, piano/keyboard players, electric music composers (yes you have a million-dollar studio already, but sometimes you might want to go light and this combo keyboard is _the_ choice) and casual consumers who are just seeking fun.
