<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Man, I get that, its a right pain! I\'ve never really bothered to work out if there\'s something I could do about it though. And now I\'m about to sell my Fatar to buy an Oberheim controller keyboard with more comprehensive MIDI spec - in particular savable patches for recalling in live use.Only downside is that I get an occasional random stream of cc 1 data being sent out when the mod wheel is stationary in the mid range of its travel.
Apart from this one thing, however (and I don\'t know if its common to all keyboards), my SL-880 has been a great performer. It an excellent action (although I DO suspect I might prefer playing orchestral sounds on a less weighted keyboard). Its master controller functions are limited but pretty intuitive to use. And I\'ve never had a thing go wrong with it.
I have noticed, since I\'ve been looking into getting a more advanced master controller, that several other models seem to have a sturdier casing than the Fatars. They\'re a bit plasticky and seem to \"move\" slightly when you lift them around, whereas the Oberheim for example is solid metal and gives the impression that every component is welded in place and is gonna stay that way. I bought the Fatar for studio use only and have never gigged it, so it hasn\'t mattered, but I\'m not sure if I\'d recommend one as a gigging keyboard.
