Stunning, CME - you are unique in thinking about the keyboard experience. Players will be delighted with this; and for performance of, say, orchestral sample package lines, or Arturia's CS80V (indeed all plugins with polyphonic aftertouch), this will be fabulous.

Clearly if you're offering user designable aftertouch curves you have mastered the robustness and stability of polyphonic aftertouch sensors, at a very low cost.

I hope other synth companies avail of your technology - they should ALL follow you lead.

Please release a full sized keyboard controller with this stunning technology.

I agree with Synth_Fan. I, too, am waiting breathlessly for a truly professional, top-shelf controller MIDI/USB keyboard.

I like the CME brand, but I also agree that this particular product isn't quite what I have in mind. Even so, it's true that other companies should follow suit, and should start pushing with more boutique controller keyboards.

The last thing that I want is yet another "professional synthesizer" or "keyboard workstation." It's 2013 -- it is time to stop giving us one more reason to cling to our aging Novation and M-Audio keyboards. It is time to give us what we need so that we can truly control our software, without having to wade through hundreds of pages of crummy "Automap" or "Hyper Control" menus. Give us something solid that feels REAL.

Thanks.

Lol about the sales guy. This was probably the worst product on Messe 2013. Build quality -10

Nick-- I get the impression that the CME XKEY (and its features) are for THE PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE. Would I be correct in this assessment? Mark

I have a CME X-Key on order but I also just ordered the 61 note version of the new poly AT keyboard being developed by Endeavour:
