Hi, im looking for recommendations of synths which have a keyboard that feels good to play?

it must have aftertouch.

it cant be a nord lead because i already have a nord rack.

any help greatly appreciated. :)

Weighted or non?

I hate weighted keyboards, so I can't recommend any of them with any conviction. For non-weighted my favourites have been (in order of preference):
Roland JX-8P (aftertouch is awful without a bit of modification though)
Kurzweil K2000
Roland D50
Roland JD-800

The Yamaha DX7 is pretty good too.

thanks for the reply, but i've had no luck with those at the moment! :frown:

I prefer non-weighted/semi-weighted as well.

im tryin to find a DX7 and the rest are too massive, i need something smaller? :headbang:

Well, its not small or light, but a Korg z1 has the best action I've ever used..
