Possibly one of the best kept secrets as far as controller keyboards are concerned. Built like a tank - 62lbs! Reasonable action, easy editing and lots of control. 4 splits and layers, 4 midi outs 2 midi ins 4 led displays. Aftertouch seems nicely weighted - no need to stand on it to make it work! There's also a nice semi-programmable arpegiator and a portamento function, both controllable by footswitch. I got an immaculate one complete with matching stand on Ebay for £75. Best bargain I've ever had. Probably not the best bet for a computer based system, but ideal for gigging or non-computer based studios. It can't transmit bank select messages though - just ad a Behringer Nano Control for that and you,ve got one hell of a controller!
