Your opinion about Solton MS100 as a master keyboard? Some info available here..
I`m still trying to put a giga system.
I have just found that at a local dealer.
Solton ms100 by ketron.
The keyboard has 76 semi-weighted keys with 4 dynamic curves, Aftertouch, 2 Modulation and Pitch Bend Wheels. Other effects provided are Portamento, Global Transposer, Octave Down, Full Chord and Arabic Scale.

Hi, Arty-i\'m going to basically copy what I just said elsewhere/.
You need BOTH weighted controller for piano articulation, and semi- or unweighted keys for good synth and other instrument articulation. i find it almost impossible to get a smooth string or pad bed with my weighted controller, but equally difficult to get that \'acoustic-piano\' feel on a synth keyboard.
My favorite keyboard for synth FEEL was the Rolad D70. Felt like oil-damped, kept back-pressure on the fingertip all the way down. But minimal controllers.
My favorite \'controller-based\' keyboard is the Kurzweil 2500/2600. TWO ribbon controllers, 8 assignable sliders, 10 assignable switches, built-in breath controller port, 2 pedal ins plus mod wheel and PB wheel. (It COULD use more foot controllers in, but still, Forking AMAZING!)
Not cheap, but you can do as much as is currently ossible one one keyboard-based controller. If you like piano action, get the 88-key 2500X, else one of the smaller ones. It\'s also a good sample player, if you need more sample options you have to get those add-ons, though, so if you want to start off less expensive and add on later, you MUST get the 2600, NOT the 2500. 26 lets YOU do the adding on, 2500 has to go to a service center...
