That could be great fun, but after having spent considerable time with the prototype of the Synth Station keyboard, I can't say I hold out too much hope for the feel of those keys. I'd go for fewer keys if they were more substantive. That said, I'll be more than happy to give this one a thorough run-through when it's available.

OT: I'd also love to have an adapter to use something like this with standard midi ports, so it could be used with other modules such as a DSI Tetra or Korg EMX - THAT would be something I'd get truly excited about.

And again the pitch and the mod wheels are unnecessary?

aw man, a big booty, a smile and an accent, and everyone wants an MPK mini. Nicely done Jack O'Donnel for snatching Sarah from TLAudio.
