Great Keyboard,hook usb to computer & go

This Keyboard is real nice. I like the feel of the simi-weighted keys-in the middle of hammer action and organ action The keys are a little loud when you play which is not a problem unless you want to record with a very sensitive studio mic. It will pick up the key sounds with your vocal track. I have seen many bands in concert use these keyboards with a lap top computer with all computer based sounds on it. It makes for a very light/ fast set-up. Keyboard is very light- although it is long it is very portable and easy to set up at a gig.

Great controller to start with and if all you need is 88 key

I received my Keystation for Christmas last year as a gift. I took it out of the box, hooked it up to my Apple Powerbook, and started playing through Propellerheads Reason. I love how simple this thing is. I was writing little bits and pieces of song ideas in minutes! I give it a 9 out of 10 because of the simplicity of it. The only thing that bothers me about it is lack of mobility. I'm not too sure how well it would do out on the road because of its size and plastic casing. I don't think I would recommend this to professional touring musicians, but it definitely does fine laying out song ideas in Reason or Garageband.
