The Coda Pro helps Alesis maintain its position as a serious contender in this market, thanks to its extra features which include five different chorus effects, five reverbs and there's even a built-in EQ setting for shaping your sound.

But what makes it a crowd favorite are the many student and teacher friendly features that include having two headphone outputs, a built-in lesson mode, and metronome.

Being a true digital piano, all of its 88 keys are fully weighted for acoustic piano like playing feel.

The Alesis Coda Pro has 20 sound and 60 songs presets, more than enough to keep practice and performance interesting.

Pros

Summary of user reviews: As expected, many are happy with the extra features of the Alesis Coda Pro, but there are others who are just as impressed with its sound quality and the overall build quality. The unit's compact size also help put the product in a positive light, along with its pitch bend wheel, which is unorthodox, to say the least, for a digital piano.

Cons

Some experienced users note that the weight of the hammer action across the keys is the same and not scaled, unlike others in the same price range. There are also others who were looking for more sound and control options, but they should have perhaps gone for a portable keyboard instead.

Overall

If you are looking for a weighted-key digital piano that has some of the features of a portable keyboard, then check out the Alesis Coda Pro.
