        Wanted a full keyboard and chose the M-Audio 88. Have been happy with their products. I mainly play guitar/bass and use this keyboard to trigger additional instruments using VST's on my recordings. For what I use it for, it fills my needs extremely well.

          It doesnt feel like a piano, you have yo really have yo press the keys to make a good sound. It is an excellent option if you want to produce your own música. But if you want to practice piano i wouldnt recommend it.

                        Comments about M-Audio Keystation 88 MKII:

                        Purchased this controller for a show where I needed a third keyboard controller. I am very pleased with the results. I did not expect a weighted action keyboard, but I was pleased with the action as it mimics the action of far more expensive synths. That surprised me in a very positive way.. It is remarkably easy to use as a MIDI controller, is light in weight and feels well built. It is a basic controller without all the knobs, etc, but I use velocity to control the parameters I want to modify live....and that's the one downfall...and why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. The Keystation 88 does not have an adjustable velocity curve. Yes you can adjust velocity on the aynths you control, but I sometimes control many synths at one time and want to be able to adjust the velocity-sensitivity of the keyboard. Wish it had this, but even without this feature it is an excellent product for the price and I plan to use it more often.
