Keys & Pads

1.Has semi-weighted keys
?

Similar to a weighted action keys, but with less resistance and a slightly springier release, semi-weighted keys are popular with many players. If you don’t need realistic piano response, but also don’t care for spring-loaded synth actions, a semi-weighted keyboard might be ideal for you.

Samson Graphite 25
2.Has velocity sensitive keys
?

Velocity sensitive keys are just spring loaded keys that sound out louder the harder you hit them. If you "lightly" press a key, the sound will be quiet; the harder you press, the louder it gets.

3.drum pads
?

The pads section is ideal to trigger loops and samples, using your finger drum skills.

Ports

1.Has a MIDI-Out port
?

The MIDI-Out port is used for transmitting data.
