"Pleasantly surprised at this price point!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought the Nektar LX88+ hoping to get a full 88 key midi controller to replace my aging M-Audio 61 Evolution controller, but worried the keyboard action would be too light for me, a classically trained pianist used to fully weighed 88 key controllers. I was pleasantly surprised at LX88's PERFECT action, not too heavy, not too light, and I was able to easily play some Debussy, Chopin, even Genesis' Firth of Fifth, all smoothly!
N/A, no sound module
Ease of Use
Has integration with all the main DAWS
MUCH better than I expected for the price point! The keys have an even, high quality feel, deep dip (something most keybeds in this price range do not), and perfect, usable semi-weighed action. as a matter of fact I plan to replace all my live keyboards with multiple LX88+ controllers.
AMAZING value for the money, I doubt there is another semi-weighed piano type 88 key controller with this quality and features, I highly recommend it.
Everything you need is available on the Nektar website. A very nice, detailed printed user guide in English was a surprise, included in box.
The Wow Factor
As a pianist since the age of ten, I was very surprised at the perfect balance of weight and dip (how low the keys dip), and how easy it was for me to play all my hard piano pieces expressively!
