    New MIDI Keyboard

    I\'m looking for a new midi keyboard, with no sounds in it... just the keyboard. I want it to have a simple, elegant look (little or no fluff unless really useful.. in which case you will have to tell be how [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )... any ideas?

    Let me know how your MIDI controller (keyboard) search goes - I\'m looking for an 88 key controller & I don\'t need sounds onboard either. But I do need something with a clear, simple interface. My old Kurzweil 2000 will make anybody crazy who\'s tring to assign voices to keys, split the keyboard, etc.

    I\'d also like a weighted action, if possible.

    So let me know what you find - meanwhile Ive got a Kurzweil keybaord for sale in the Bay Area .... 510 444 6232 .... great sound for those who don\'t care about the MIDi interface.

    I have a Fatar Studiologic SL880 Pro and like it quite a bit. But, I have seen that M-Audio is releasing a new weighted 88 key USB controller...the Keystation Pro 88...it has faders, knobs, a cool graphic display and I believe is powered by USB! M-Audio doesn\'t have price or release info yet other than 2nd quarter.

    It\'s often a LOT easier to do that sort of thing within your MIDI sequencer application, where you can really see thing on a nice screen (plus save, organize and archive).

    Thanks, Lee - another argument for getting into a sequencing program. Unlike 90% of the people on this forum, I\'m a Finale user almost exclusively.

    You also get the S90 keyaction in the Yamaha S08. (Note I wrote S08 not S80....the old S80 had great key action for its day but can\'t compete with the awesome action on the new S90/S08/Motif)
