Reviews From Buyers
The Air 32 is a good keyboard. I plan to use it more as a travel instrument but it seems to fulfill my needs. Its incredibly light, couple pounds tops. And already designed for ableton, making it easy to carry/set up. No Re-MIDI mapping every time I use anything beyond the keyboard (nobs, beat pads, pitchbend buttons). I really enjoy having the extra 7 keys, since I like to build instrument racked drum kits in Ableton. I like to use a wide range of bass notes, and the 32 provides this. I have not tried the Ignite software included and cannot tell you anything about it sorry.
