The velocity curve for the pressure pads is a bit disappointing. You can adjust the curve only in one slope and there is no way to adjust the minimum volumn for touching the pads. I'm used to playing a weighted piano. When you press the key even gently the weight of the hammer makes a sound. The curve to feel like a real piano for me after numerous experimentation is a very quick rise to 75 percent then more pressure for 100% volumn. I am now nearly just using the half way and full volumn settings exclusively since the velocity is to difficult to control. Akai if you're listening you should allow us to DRAW our velocity and volumn curves and have full access to set the Y curve point to have a minimum sound based on a low pressure velocity.

Given the price of the One, I think its a hit. Of course at least one more stereo pair of outs would be better. Really like the form factor. There’s also a Live MK2 in the works so I guess I’ll wait and see what that has to offer? But, truth be told... Not buying any of them until Akai finally delivers the promised multitimbral MIDI.

Just thought I should mention this. Randomization!

i just got mine in, and i like this so much better than the live. the dedicated buttons make a huge difference for me. the menu diving on the one had it collecting dust on my shelf, but this one is actually fun to play.
