Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Reasonable number of controller features. Has note transpose, not just octave transpose, which I liked.
Keyboard action was okay. Semi-weighted was better than totally spring loaded, but not as good as the semi-weighted that I loved on the Korg O1/W, for example. *** I OWNED TWO OF THESE, AND BOTH OF THEM FRIED WITHIN FOUR YEARS TIME. I'm not going to buy a third one, I learned my lesson. There's something messed up about its power or something, as they keep dying. Keyboard controllers should only die when you pound them into pieces with enthusiastic playing, not because of electrical problems.
