The feel is soooo bad
Lieutenant Scheisskopf, 16.03.2021
I was looking to get a lighter keyboard that I could take on the road for piano practice.

Granted this is not an expensive keyboard and I was not expecting something mind-blowing but...

The moment I touched the keys I realised this was not the keyboard for me. The keys are very springy and feel horrible and velocity response is a bit hard to control.

It felt like they made a 88 key toy piano. If you tend to play a little harder the keys do make a plasticky sound.

For those who say the feel is good they don't know what they are talking about,

Pros:
Cheap for an 88 keyboard
Light

Cons:
The feel is terrible
Key do make a plastic hitting sound if you play harder

Klassiker im neuen Gewand
Mathias281, 22.10.2020
Ich hatte bereits viele Keyboard Controller und ja, man kann sich die Frage stellen, warum die grossen Marken (Yamaha, Casio etc.) nicht schon seit Langem hochwertige Controller anbieten und die Suche nach einem brauchbaren Controller so schwierig ist (?) - insbesondere, wenn man die unterschiedlichen Modelle nicht mal so eben im Laden schnell persönlich testen kann. Ich hatte bereits den Vorgänger der Keystation 88 und die Unterschiede zur neuen Version sind aus meiner Sicht sehr gering. Der Funktionsumfang ist praktisch gleich geblieben. Es ist ein Midi-Controller ohne Schnickschnack und reduziert auf das Wesentliche. Die Tastatur liegt auch beim neuen Modell im "Spannungsfeld" zwischen den üblichen 49er Tastaturen und einer Hammermechanik. Jeder, der weiss wovon ich spreche wird die Tastatur nicht unbedingt für nuanciertes Klavierspiel verwenden (dazu eignen sich aus meiner Sicht selbst die günstigsten Epianos mit Hammermechanik besser). Trotzdem ist die Tastatur sehr brauchbar und griffig (ja sie macht die gleichen Klappergeräusche wie beim Vorgängermodell) und gerade im Zusammenspiel mit virtuellen Instrumenten ist es einfach sehr praktisch, wenn man schnell und ohne zu transponieren auf die "tiefen" Tasten zugreifen kann, da dort gerne mal bestimmte Funktionen zum Abruf anderer Spielweisen/Artikulationen etc. angelegt sind. Ich finde auch für Pop-Piano mit wenig Dynamik kommt man ohne weiteres mit der Tastatur aus. Viele finden eine Hammermechanik für andere Instrumente als Klavier ohnehin eher ungeeignet. Dem schliesse ich mich an. In dieser Preisklasse wäre noch Arturia (Essential 88) zu nennen. Aber wer die zusätzlichen Regler und die Software nicht braucht ist mit dem M-Audio sehr gut beraten (oder wer wie ich mit einer Keyboard-Schublade unter dem Tisch arbeitet und an solche Regler schon aus Platzgründen sowieso nicht rankäme). Ich bin jedenfalls sehr zufrieden!
