5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly effective 15 Dec 2010
The Discover keyboard is one of the simplist midi devices I have ever come accross.
Installation was as simple as removing it from the box and plugging it in. Drivers were installed automatically, and using it was simply a case of selecting the "ION Keyboard" entry in my chosen music program.

The keyboard itself is surprisingly robust, and the 25 velocity-sensitive keys actually feel weighty enough to play. The keys themselves are very small, as expected for such a dinky keyboard, but large enough to remain playable even with my chunky-sized hands.
Best of all, and most surprising of all for me, was that there is practically no lag with this keyboard, as has been a problem with other MIDI-USB devices I have used.

Overall, a fantastic item to have at your computer desk - takes up very little space, and is always ready for a bout of creativity. I've even begun to use this whilst onstage, using it to control a lighting system, and have found no problems with it. Highly reccomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good and has tutorial software too. 20 Dec 2011
By Misty
Ordered this to go alongside Piano playing for Dummies so that my mum can see on screen the mistakes she makes and so on. Upon receiving they keyboard I realised it actually came with tutorial software itself so could have saved myself some money! The size of the keyboard is more than adequate, not too small and with keys plenty big enough for normal sized hands. Good product and good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, effective and just what you need. 20 Jan 2012
I bought this keyboard, not as a teaching tool, but is a trigger to use my sound module for in my studio. Space was a real problem for me and I required something small that could sit on a desk and be easily hidden and afterwards.

This item does exactly what I needed it to do. easy to use, nice feel to the keyboard...rememeber you will never get proper keyboard actin from anything this small. Simple to play and for the most part was just Plug and Play. Great value for money and had no problems with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and portability 31 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
I was looking for a cheap and small midi keyboard for when i get idea's for songs and can quickly record them, being rescricted with space but having alot of keyboard/synthesizer related equipment causes me to take about 5 minutes to set everything up so i wanted something for on the fly recording.

I'm surprised about the build quality, if i'm honest at that price i wasn't expecting a very strong or durable feeling plastic or keys it feels like playing on a regular midi keyboards apart from smaller keys, which are the size of a Microkorg's keys, its really easy to play and just a little more harder than my standard sized 25 midi keyboard, its harder in the fact the keys are smaller but it has its benifits, reaching keys for certain chords and leads is alot easer since the key distance is effectivley halfed.

The features are pretty good too i couldn't believe it features keys with velocity, i've not read the instructions yet to check out the program button capabilities but i'm sure they'll be similar to regular midi keyboards, also the pitch bend buttons are a nice addition for something this small, you can't adjust the pitch like a slider but it does sound pretty nice with certain sounds if your creative with how you play, the buttons all feel well built and the pitch and octaive keys light up to let you know your lower down the keyscale or pushing the pitch bend buttons.

Now on to the USB, it comes with a decent sized cable, about a meter long i think by looking at it, it connects with a mini usb going into the keyboard and then a normal sized usb into your computer, i'm using usb 1.0 for it via a usb port on my typing keyboard and the latency is super low, i've not even bothered to try it out on usb 2.0 or 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Handy Tool for Musicians on the PC 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I was pleased with the look of the item. Installation of software was quick but the application of turning the keyboard sound was a little difficult to master. The sound quality was good and the touch delay was acceptable for use.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money 19 May 2014

Found it very difficult to understand. Hard to use and if you're not pc literate you've had it. Thought it would be easy but could not work it at all. Waste of money.
