I received it really fast and it was on good conditions. It's perfect for what I need and it's great for beginners or pros. It's compatible with most daws out there (including the free ones).

BUT... BUUUUUUUUUTTTT... (and this one is for you my fellow beginner that doesn't have much space on its computer and may not have a good internet speed);
I have to be honest, dont waste time or space with the software...
First you have to make an account at Akaipro to register your device, then download the software to download what's included (Hybrid 3, Mini Grand, MPC Beats and much more). After I downloaded all of them IN THE SOFTWARE, you have to install EACH ONE OF THEM, AND EACH ONE OF THEM RESTARTS YOUR COMPUTER...
Ok no problem. BUT HOLD IT RIGHT THERE...
Cuz somehow it downloads ILOK License Manager and you have to make ANOTHER ACCOUNT IN THERE so you can SOMEHOW try to get the license for each plugin...

Don't take me wrong. I'm not saying it's bad, but it's a small uncomfortable process for a beginner like me and I don't recall having a hard time with other free plugins around. But it makes you wonder if it's worth it... is it?
Aside from what I just said, it's REALLY good for most daws and for beginners, even if I upgrade my computer I don't think I need to replace this midi for a better one because THIS IS THE BETTER ONE and really good for it's price. The mini piano doesn't have a hard hammer and the quality of material is good. About the pads... you can see at the mini screen how much pressure you're using when pressing them. I highly recommend this midi.

And as I said, think if the software is worth it or is what you're looking for... and if you are willing to go through that process.
