As more and more people are jumping into the “enthusiast” world of DJing and producing it’s nice to know that we can do it without breaking the bank.
iCon has made the perfect little keyboard controller for the road warrior or college dorm room production enthusiast. It is both Mac/Windows compatible, sports 25 keys and is USB powered which is nice when you are traveling. It’s just plug and play.
The keyboard is about the same width as a Macbook 13” and comes with some nice features like touch pads for modulation/pitch, a sustain button and two USB connectors for daisy chaining.
For the price ($65 MSRP) and the features this is really a solid little piece of gear that is ultra portable and fairly solid. It worked correctly right of the box and did exactly what is was supposed to, so if you are someone looking for a good starting point and/or are super mobile the iKey from iCon is worth considering.
