Great for everything I've tried it with!
Pros: I've used this keyboard with Ableton, Reason, and FLStudio and in every case it has worked extremely well! Its a great keyboard for recording with, and all the sliders and knobs work beautifully for controlling filter parameters and LFO's (DUBSTEP WOBBLES 'n JUNK!)
Cons: Uhmmm... Its a little plasticy for my taste. I don't think it could take very much abuse.
Other Thoughts: This was actually used in some of the demo videos they did for FLStudio 10.... (thats why I bought it....)
