I find this keyboard interesting because:
- it has 88 keys
(which is the most practical for me)
- it has many assignable sliders, knobs, buttons
and pedal inputs
- it weights less than 8kg
- it is the second least expensive
Currently, I have a Yamaha P-250 stage piano and a Novation Remote 25 controller, which
are great, but when it comes to travelling, rehearsing, etc they are not that easy to
carry and to setup.
Which is why I am interested in using a VMK-88, but it's
impossible to find one here so I don't know how useable/playable it is. I perfectly accept
that the keyboard does not have the same feeling as a grand piano (it must be closer to a
Roland A-30 or an M-Audio Keystation, right?), and that the sliders are probably not the
best of the world.
But on the Internet, while some people like it, some other
people complain that the controllers are "slow" (is it only possible?), that sometimes
there are some "stuck MIDI notes", that the sliders and knobs are extremly cheap and that
the keyboard is "spongy".
It looks amazing to me, but if it was true I would not buy
it of course.
Would you recommand this keyboard for travelling, rehearses and
