Categories > MIDI > Alesis > Alesis Q61 USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller - New

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Just the basics, but still a decent keyboard controller.
Pros: Overall construction is fairly solid, or at least as solid as plastic can be in a keyboard meant for people on a budget (it's very lightweight). The keys have a good feel (having 61 of them helps). Installation was completely painless. I use the USB cable to connect it to the machines where I do my recording (both a Mac mini and a Windows 8 laptop), and in using it with almost a DOZEN different digital audio workstations -- ranging from GarageBand to Logic to Cakewalk SONAR -- it has *never* failed to work properly. It also doesn't require a separate power cable if you connect it via USB.
Cons: More expensive keyboards might be sturdier, but at this price point, does it matter?
Other Thoughts: I've owned this Alesis Q61 keyboard controller for almost a year, and it has served my needs very well. To give you an idea, what it replaced was actually a full-blown Alesis QS7 *synthesizer* -- yes, that's right, a full-blown synthesizer with its own sounds that set me back a pretty penny when I originally bought it years ago. But now that I'm using soft synths pretty much exclusively, all I need is something to simply tell the PC what to do. And this does it. Mind you, what this keyboard has going for it is that it's meant to cover the basics at a very attractive price. So, if you need a keyboard controller with a larger plethora of buttons to fiddle with, you might want to look elsewhere. But for me, the most important things that I care about are there, such as pitch/modulation, a simple means of data entry, and a few other essential functions like that. Everything else I don't mind doing through my recording software's interface. In short, I'm happy to be an owner of the Alesis Q61, and I look forward to continue using it in my future musical endeavors.

Categories > MIDI > Behringer > Behringer UCG102 Guitar To USB Link USB Audio Interface

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Just What I Was Looking For
Pros: I wanted a simple way to hook up my guitar to my Windows 8.1 HP Envy M6 Sleekbook laptop via USB. Once installed, updated with the latest drivers from Behringer, configured in the software, it works great! Nice software included too!
Cons: A little more techy to set up and configure than the steps in the manual. Outdated drivers and software are shipped with the product, but so what! The serial numbers are good. The new versions are online!
