I just gave this Nektar Impact LX25+ USB Midi Controller to my eleven-year-old grandson who is a budding musician and computer whiz. I am amazed how quickly with my son's help, he was able to turn on his creative talents. He plays the piano and the saxophone with mild interest. But this device excited him so much that he told me multiple times how much he liked it. He was able to create a new piece of music with multiple layers of sound including voice. It was a blast. The whole family got in the act.
