Pros

Mini midiplus keyboards are a great size and form factor, virtually ideal. This is the best compact keybed i've found yet-- it feels close enough to full-sized but takes up the least-possible amount of space. This keyboard is far superior in quality t...  Read More

Midiplus x3 controller is great so far! Perfect little minimal midi keyboard. Quality of build and feel of the keys on this model put it at the top of the heap.

Sturdy metal chassis, keys are just the right width for a mini keyboard. Keys are moderately quiet and they feel good in spite of being small. Nice to have a keyboard for quick use alongside my computer.

The midiplus x4 has a usb and 5-pin midi out port and sustain pedal 1/4 jack. It excels at controlling external hardware synths. Easy integration with garage band.

Cons

This midi keyboard is ok if your just starting out and want something cheap. It will not be recognized by any midi software. Notes stick in sustain if you hit them, and the sustain pedal jack doesn't work. I will know if it is truly defective when i r...  Read More

This is an awesome midi keyboard taking in consideration the price.


The overall feel is really good for a keyboard at this price.

Packaging/appearance


Though smallish, these 4 knobs have a really nice feel and resistance, too, with a non-slip coating.


The x3 mini fits nicely in the slide-out tray of a corner computer desk, while the x4 mini fits nicely on a 31 folding table on...  Read More


I'm not even sure it's completely the hardware's fault.

Competitiveness


Solid metal casing and the keys are strong and have more rebound than the competitors.


Its competitors from m audio and alesis are perhaps just as nice, but have a higher price due to having substantial software pa...  Read More


You will not find a better midi controller for the price.


As for cases:i looked all over for a case for this thing.

    The only thing that bugs me is that the pitch bend sticks at times, and does not return to normal position until you touch the ribbon again.

    Lots of software options to play it.

    I don't mind having to use a shift button so much, but it would be nice if it wasn't such a multistep process.

    It seems like this is something that could be improved in firmware.
