As we're already big fans of the unbeatable value-for-money Alesis Q49, the QX49 wasn't exactly going to be a hard sell for us. For the money, this keyboard has more than you could possibly wish for. With pads, pots, faders, transport controls and 49 spring-loaded piano keys this controller packs one hell of a lot of bang for your buck. If you need a keyboard that won't break the bank but still gives you a decent level of functionality then this has to be one of the better contenders out there. Comes recommended!
