Stage Right 25-Key MIDI Keyboard Controller - Black
Control your PC music software and/or MIDI sound modules and sequencers using this 25-key MIDI Keyboard Controller from Monoprice!
This 4-octave, velocity sensitive MIDI keyboard controller features a USB port, which allows you to connect to a computer for use with your favorite music creation software or with software synthesizers or sequencers. It also includes a 5-pin MIDI DIN output, for connecting directly to sound modules or sequencers.
This powerful controller allows you to map almost any function to almost any button, knob, slider, or wheel. Built-in functions include the ability to quickly adjust the octave range up or down, or to transpose the keys for easier pitch changes.

- User's Manual (Mar 20, 2015)
PROS: This really does work well. It feels nice to play, the keys are the correct keyboard size, the pressure can feel a little... multiplied sometimes(?). The sliders feel great to move, the knobs feel nice to turn, overall, it's a quality product, and I do recommend it - IF other copies didn't have the same problems.
CONS: The volume control slider does now send data to the computer... I have an M-Audio Keystation 88 es MIDI keyboard, too, and the volume slider works fine to the PC, but this little one's volume data doesn't pass onto the PC. I know it's doing something in the keyboard because the slider value shows up on the number screen on the keyboard itself. So, that doesn't work unless I'm missing something?
When I very first used it the top C key would sometimes not play when pressed. Only a short few times... I haven't noticed it since the first time I used it.
