  1. I had an Akai 25 key controller in that small size (non BT, just USB). I really didn’t like it.

    I tried a Korg MicroKey 25 and liked it much more, better build, nicer key feel and velocity response.

    I expect the MicroKey air to be a better feeling keyboard as well. FWIW.

  2. We need more wireless devices and more radiation in our lives. Then we have to go sit on mount Everest in order to compose. Cables are so 80`s. We also need more wireless music and wireless brains and wireless phones. It`s all sooooo Funky. We are soooo evolved
