No AC Adaptor Included with Keyboard!

I was sorely disappointed and appalled that an AC adaptor was not included with the keyboard! I did not purchase some kind of toy. I purchased this instrument through the West End Conservatory and it cost more than $100 and I believe Yamaha failed to give me a complete product.

Worked for my needs...

By

from Bellflower, CA  -  Professional Musician

I needed a midi keyboard (no velocity sensitivity) to control VB3, GSI's Virtual B3 - the best tonewheel software synth ever!! This was for a reunion show for a band from the 80's. I hooked this up to my netbook (running VB3) via the USB hookup. The downside is a set fresh Duracell Alkaline batteries (not included) only lasted 5 hours of non-continuous use. Poor battery life - use an adapter (not included). Another bad thing is the volume knob does not transmit any midi data. That would have been a simple thing to include in the programming. I read the midi implementation PDF file on the web (again, not included), which said that it transmits midi volume (controller 7). This is incorrect, and a downright lie. This omission was a disappointment. But, for a kid's first keyboard, this would be great. It has decent voices built-in. And the price is dirt cheap!! 4 stars when used as it was meant to be - a child's learning tool.
