Pros and cons

According to our MIDI electric keyboards expert
  • Because the keys are velocity sensitive, you put more feeling into your piano playing.
  • You keep the overview through the colored backlight of the drum pads.
  • With the 8 knobs you can control effects, equalizers and filters from your recording software.
  • The keyboard has no screen from which you can read information about the production software.
  • Because the keyboard has no aftertouch, you can not modulate sounds by applying pressure with your fingertips.

Description

The Alesis VI25 is a MIDI keyboard with 25 velocity-sensitive keys and 16 velocity-sensitive drum pads. Thanks to the semi-weighted and velocity-sensitive keys, you put more feeling into your piano playing. Because the keyboard distinguishes soft from hard keystrokes, the melodies you play sound less static. This way you create a human feeling in your productions. With the 16 pressure-sensitive drum pads you can enter rhythms or full beats. Use the keyboard to play samples from your software or to control hardware. Link the 8 knobs to parameters in your production software. So you use the rotary controls to control effects, equalizers and filters of your recording software and you are not dependent on your mouse.

    • works perfectly with the included software plug and play
    • small but has everything you need

    after downloading all the supplied software you can get started right away, i thought it would be a big job to get everything working with the right settings e. d. but that wasn't the case! plug and play as it should be!

    Ideal & Affordable Controller, Everything is MIDI Mappable
    • Pressure sensitive RGB backlit drum pads
    • Full size hammer/ waterfall keys with Aftertouch
    • 24 Blue Backlit Programmable Push Buttons
    • Blue-lit rotary knobs (non-endless)
    • 24 locks to save your own presets
    • Just too big to carry in the average backpack
    • No buttons to switch channels
    • No pre-programmed “DAW presets”

    It took me a while before I got the Transport buttons working in Logic! Furthermore, I only miss buttons to switch MIDI channels.
    The 25 velocity-sensitive keys & drum pads play really GREAT & well-functioning Aftertouch!!!
    The VI25 is fully customizable, unfortunately it doesn't fit in the average backpack!

    • Easy to connect
    • Easy for beginners
    • Drums are handy and beautiful with lighting
    • Keyboard good quality
    • Lighting beautiful
    • Expensive for what you get
    • Expected more from program you get

    I find this product by design very clean and easy to work with but expensive.

    worth it!
    • the pads
    • the keys
    • No built-in speakers

    I myself am a starting producer, and since this also comes with a program, it is very nice. Also, it's very easy to figure out how it works.

    Top quality for little money
    • Sensitive drum pads
    • waterfall keyboard
    • Ideal for novice DJ
    • All drivers are still available for download
    • No manual for a setup

    Very professional finish for a MIDI ! For me, this is the best choice in its price range. Sometimes a little limited in chords by the 25 keys, I would rather have 49 on this design (with this number of drum pads)
