I am trying to choose a keyboard MIDI controller and have searched our forums for user views.
Apart from the usual must-have features such as mod-wheel, pitch-bend and after-touch, I would like a touch-sensitive keyboard (the harder a key is pressed, the louder the sound). There are plenty of models that have this but I can find very little mention of the ability to switch this off when not needed. I am thinking of the times I would use the keyboard to play instrument patches that wouldn't want this such as organ and harpsichord. I know that when playing these instruments I could take particular care to keep my finger pressure even but I don't feel that this is an ideal situation.
The only keyboard I can find that has any mention of switching the touch-sensitive feature on or off is the M-Audio Oxygen 61 which does offer three set velocity options. Apparently, the higher M-Audio range of Axioms don't have this feature. Nor can I find any mention of this in other manufacturers such as the Edirol or CME ranges.
I would appreciate any advice on this.
