What 88 key midi controller has the most realistic piano-like action? I\'m trying to decide on whether to re-buy my Alesis Qs8, which wasn\'t too bad, but I\'m looking for something that has better action.
I still love my old Kurzweil K250 for its action but there aren\'t many around and those that are seem to be collector\'s items.
I think Kurzweil brought out a piano a short while back which I had the pleasure of playing when depping for a friend in the Lion King. I can\'t recall the name (although I think it might have had a 9000 in it!). Anyway, that was a really nice instrument to play.
I use the Yamaha KX-88...feels solid, no bounce, keys edges are rounded just enough. It\'s been around for a while, so the MIDI implementation is not as good as the latest models, but, to me, it\'s still the most realistic.
I visited the factory in Hammamatsu where they pump these things out...they have special inspectors who hand-test each key for uniform feel...quite amazing.
