Comments about M-Audio Keystation 61 MKII:
I originally purchased a Samson midi as the lower keyboard for my Hammond XK1. I didn't like the undersized keys or the controls. The M-Audio has standard sized, piano style keys, with good action and the controls are easily accessible on a keyboard stand crowded with 4 other keyboards. The good news is, it's still lightweight enough to be easily transportable. So far, this is the perfect midi for my needs.
