My SL990XP has failed two times

By John Poole

from Ardmore, PA

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

Had a new CPU put in purchased from midistore and the unit still malfunctions. I would like to hear from others who own or use the SL990XP to see if their board transmits sustain message on channels other than channel 1. John Poole, wyncote academy.org faculty

GREAT KEYBOARD FOR THE MONEY!

By NURREDIN

from VEGAS,BABY!

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

I purchased this for my studio because I have all the sound modules and keyboards I needed,but I wanted an 88 key controller for my virtual intruments on my studio computer and my rack mount synths. This keyboard is heavy,and the keys are the best thing next to an actual grand piano.It actually reminds me of my old Fender Rhodes in it's playability. I just used it on a few songs for my latest release on Itunes coming in December 2010. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone who's looking for real keyboard feel and responsiveness. You'll need a roadie if you're going to use this keyboard for gigging. If you use a lot of modules or 61 key synths,this could be the ticket for full range use on all your keyboards, and you won't have to change octaves anymore.

Totally Unusable

By Jonathan K

from Detroit/Myrtle Beach SC

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

First problem is the white keys are louder than the black ones. Notes are triggered at sparatic volumes. This is not a calibration issue. I have the same problem running as an 88 key controller to a 61 key M3, to Ivory on a muse receptor, and to logic studio 8 on a macbook pro. White keys are louder on all systems. It also takes 3 seconds for the bank up/bank down signal to be transmitted to the receptors. The motifs and m3's do it instantly. To me this makes it completely worthless live. After encountering this problem, I went online and others seem to have this same problem. I do not trust these keyboards and will never buy another.BE VERY CAREFUL when buying one of these. Like many other buyers, I did not become aware of this problem until a while after I'd purchased it, and it was too late to return it.

Realistic Feel and Performance

By trilobite

from Southern California

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

Pros. I am delighted with the quality and performance of the StudioLogic SL 990 XP keyboard. It replaced my 17-year-old Roland FP 8. Action. I noticed a big improvement in feel and heft. Action is substantial. Before buying the keyboard, I feared wimpy action like some other MIDI keyboards I tried. Expressiveness. I was surprised by the improvements in dynamic scope and expressiveness of this keyboard over the Roland. The StudioLogic keyboard provides more subtle control when I want it. Makes the overall system behave and sound like a nice grand piano.Cons. Twice, glitches with reverse poll of the sustain controller - usually at startup - easily fixed by cycling off/on. Satin finish on the black keys results in noticeable fingernail scraping noise while playing adjacent white keys.I recommend this keyboard for enthusiasts and pros who want a keyboard MIDI controller that feels and performs like a real piano. System. StudioLogic SL 99 XP, Roland JV1010. MAudio Studiophile speakers. Piano Experience. 36 years.

5,0 but watch out!

By John T. Poole

from suburbs of Philadelphia

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

The first batch of SL990XPs could only transmit sustain pedal action on channel One. Fatar hoped that glitch would just be ignored and many did since they were using it for a piano module only and had no need to change channels. I'd check to see if the sustain pedal functions in all the channels.

44 pounds of junk

By pan man

from Key West, FL

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

A month or two out of warranty, seven keys stopped transmitting. Repairs and shipping would be as much as the purchase price. The keyboard has never moved from my air-conditioned studio, and was used once or twice a month. Will not buy Fatar/Studiologic again.

Great Controller!

By Vinnie-54JWM

from Phoenixville, PA

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

This controller does what it needs to do. It seems pretty sturdy and reliable-it's been great on the road so far. The action is stellar; it has great feel and response. It's far better than the CME 88-key controller. I gave generous ratings in all categories except features because this controller would be absolute if it had some knobs and faders. Getting past that, it is one of the best feeling full-sized keyboards I have ever played and owned. I use it to control Reason, I have had a really great experience using this as my main controller in my rig. Once again, everything rocks with this board. Not to mention the pricetag!

Budget solution for Top Notch Keys

By Josh

from LA

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

Very Top Notch hammer-action. The touch is awesome! I'm a classically trained pianist and I LOVE the touch on this thing. MUCH better than the M-audio stuff (even their 88-key pro models). This is not "plasticy". Yes, it's heavy but it's well worth it. My M-audio keystation suddenly had keys that stopped responding to me but this MIDI Controller never fails me. I have tried a Yamaha Motif and this keyboard is on par, if not better, than the Motif as far as the action goes. With softwares getting more and more popular and offering better sounds. Getting a MIDI Controller like this one can save you bucks and give you top quality VI performances as well.

Phenomenal action!

By RL82

from New Jersey

Comments about Studiologic SL-990XP 88-Key MIDI Controller:

I purchased this keyboard for the sole purpose on controlling my Kurzweil ME-1 sound module. My requirements were simple: A great 88-key hammer action keys, and basic MIDI functionality. Well let me tell you, the keyboard action is outstanding! Very impressive feel, and touch response, especially at this price point. The features are pretty limited so research and understand what you want and need your controller to do. Like I said before, I'm just using this keyboard for piano emulation, nothing else... so it's perfect for me in that regard. One of my only gripes is no on-board velocity adjustments, you'll have to step up to the SL990-Pro for that.
