I would buy this keyboard again and again!


By far the best controller I have used. I use it for Cubase DAW and controlling my Ipad apps. The quality is top notch. Easy to setup and use. I tried the A 61 for a couple of days but convinced myself to go for the S 61 . So glad I did! Would recommend this keyboard controller to anyone looking for great piece of equipment for home studio or stage. Just for reference, my first ever keyboard was one of the very first Wurlitzer electric pianos. So you can guess I've had a few others over the years. ; )
