Tip for a Poly-Aftertouch Keyboard

For an upcoming project I need a cheap 'n' dirty poly AT keyboard. Mains power, MIDI out and minimum five octave of full-sized keys a must. Ideally non-weighted/synth action.

Nothing fancy needed. Any tips for something that's OK for the job and plentiful enough to be easily picked up secondhand?

You used "nothing fancy' and 'poly aftertouch' together. I wish you luck.

I did wonder about that myself, but thought maybe I was just out of touch {pun not intended}

Hmmm. Somewhere on this forum, we have listed, or linked to a list, of Poly AT Keyboards, but I can’t just find it. Perhaps someone can track it down.

Shooting from the hip though, I would have thought a GEM S2, S3 or Equinox is likely to be the cheapest route to Poly AT keys. After that, some of the Ensoniq models (SQ80, VFX, etc). All of these seem to be being recognised as something a bit special though, so increasingly hard to come by. Good luck, Elf!

Think I was wrong about the Equinox :headbang:

I suppose the likes of an old Ensoniq is what I'm thinking of - I used to have an EPS with Poly AT - humble, but I could do with it now!
