Drumpads are a touch overkill aren't they? Can't imagine anyone looking cool stabbing their fingers on them trying to do a drum part or trigger samples when you have a perfectly usable keyboard?

Wow -- seriously -- that is AWESOME!!! I've wanted a wireless MIDI remote controller for years. Let's hope that Roland, Yamaha, Korg, et al will compete.

I love this, and the price is outstanding, I've never understand why other keytar makers can justify charging $1000+ for their offerings, well done Alesis.

Except Korg's new Keytar is only $100 more, looks cooler, has TWO ribbon controllers, and isn't just a MIDI controller; it has the MicrokorgXL synth engine in it along with a 16 band Vocoder. Still, either way, unless you are in a retro electro 80s throwback band, you'll look like a douche wearing ANY Keytar!

Looks a lot like mine and I was one of the people that complained about the white. Mines wireless via midair hidden in the strap. Wonder what the effective range is on this one.
