Fatar / Studiologic SL-880
No sound, cheap hammer mechanism, never used any button... 88 keys is good though. I guess its good for the price



Easy to use


Not good quality... Most stores will tell you their Fatars are returned within a year. Its a shame, Again, the price...

I sold it.

I bought this keyboard to connect to a home computer (mac and windows) essentially to control Pro Tools, it works spot on!
I never had a problem with this keyboard that ca be as soft at the mechanics. It's tough.
Only buttons in frontage seem a bit fragile, and yet they still work just fine after 10 years of loyal service.
Frankly, level quality / price is unbeatable (however, accept it as a master keyboard = will not work in standalone mode because no bank in its internal or HP).


The feel is really great, I'd say it's the big keyboard MORE
For use as mine (control a sequencer to play sequences and realistic piano) is impeccable
At the config, is simple: we branch, and is recognized directly (after choosing the correct midi channel of course)


It's been 10 years that I use, I am very satisfied because now how many aircraft electrical / electronic can claim such a life?
It has not moved an inch in 10 years, I've never had to repair.

The big plus: the heavy touch really realistic, its robustness, simplicity
Cons: buttons that fragile facades (but it is not the case), weight (avoid taking them every day, otherwise you will have to buy at the physio sessions :) )

The simplicity and robustness!
I play for a long time with this keyboard (almost 10 years now).
I never had a problem with it, and besides, I do not understand that certain notices lowest point in this direction ...
Anyway this is a keyboard, simple and works great!


The heavy hit is very good, this is also the first test that I decided at the time of purchase.
I am a pianist for 20 years and I play bcp styles, mostly blues / rock, ca going very well.
For more classical pieces, a friend who tried it told me it was very good too
Its default = its weight a little heavy, but normal since this is a real hammer mechanics (ca therefore is not an artifact like many keypads offer today ...)


In summary:
- I am very pleased with this keyboard, robust, easy to use to hit the excellent heavy, I use it for 10 years and I never had any problems with.
- Its only flaw I would say his weight a little heavy but normal vs. complete mechanical hammer (in any case always remain lighter than a real piano :)

- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
88 piano keys at the time (2001), one of the cheapest

- What connector (MIDI pedals ...)?...
2 MIDI outs, 2 pedals


- The touch keyboard is it fun? Should your use?
touch is a bit hard (but I am based synthesis). You can adjust the curves véolicités, but I do not find them very natural.

- The general configuration is it simple?
Everything is done via the keyboard, and a few buttons on top, without the manual to hand, it is impossible. The only command to know by heart the rest is global!
The SL retains its normal presets in memory, but the app is completely buggy, sometimes switching on some MIDI signals are brought out, sometimes the speed is everything. I am often led to a reset, so I do not retain any memory presets (layers, etc ...).

- The selection of MIDI channels, patches is easy?
same remarks as for the config.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The English part is more detailed than the French


- How long have you use it?
2001, so 6 / 7 years.

- What is so special that you like most and least?
most: the heavy touch allowing more expressivté for strings and piano. Cons: everything else.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

- How would you rate the quality / price?
there must be more reliable for the same price. I do not think you could sell a product too ended badly (in repetition bugs)
mechanics has never let go by against, despite some "bread" that has made the keyboard in transport (internal fixation of the cover was broken).

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Hammer-type touch + + aftertouch modulation wheels (hard to find any ARUN)

2 MIDI Out

Good qualitprix


Touch is excellent
It is just a little harder than on a real piano

Please note that section located above the keyboard is inclined by training ... so it can be prone forward a little more hands (as if the keys taient a little longer) has ... embtant can be a time that is found on a piano study.

The use of four zones is ultra-simple


I use it for 2 years (I bought used) and I never had any problem with it.
I dplac PERIOD for a once a week ... it's tough RPET.
I use the Gator GK 288 Slim to transport:

Now I leave the house because it is quite heavy and I use a Doepfer for RPTES.

This category in keyboard is an excellent qualitprix ...

It has everything you need.


Studiologic The interface is minimal. It is cheap but it's not pleasant to use.


The Hammer is not too bad. Mine was full of faults:

- The lowest key (the) worked poorly
- The velocity response was uneven, it makes the machine unplayable
- The OS was completely buggy.

In short I got rid quick!

4-zone master keyboard overlays
Key hammer hammer


Use OK but not for scne as boring and cumbersome installation trs (23 kilos of memory I think) but it's not why I bought it even if c'tait the I have made use.
The key hammer hammers, rput the era as one of the best is not bad but has nothing do with a real piano to try before you buy. Similarly it is not prcis trs.
MIDI editing not easy but good considering the price it is important to EXAGRES dja lot parameter.
Manuel incomplete but we can do without galrant a bit.


Bought his release, was 9 years that I use and I will have sold it if I can. Question reliability they still ptits of worries. Personal sustain the pedals that came with did not work after a week when I brought him to the seller it was a little nervous, because as c'tait or not THE FIRST dernire the time it happened to him (he has given me a another brand that it still works) he also told me not to review it n'arrtait customers return with their keyboard under his arm -> troubleshooting.
After nine years to reach big problem, some keys have difficulty functioning. Question nuances of games, it is possible to qualify now.

Conclusion: This keyboard has done what I asked him to do it properly. But it has had its day I think. Not made to last (but I much dplac. There's no picture the price is everything.
And for those who want to touch the piano first look at the roland numriques before thinking FATAR.

Fatar / Studiologic SL-880
Master keyboard with 88 keys heavy aftertouch.connectiques 2 midi out, a volume pedal, a pedal sustain.1 modulation wheel, pitch bend 1.


Touch is very pleasant, I have REALLY found the comfort of playing piano. It is not very robust (all plastic), but is light enough to be carried on stage. The use is simple but very limited. You can only set for four parts: the channel number, program number and bank, the split, using ds calf or not, same with the sustain pedal and the aftertouch, transposition, velocity, the envelopes of velocity. Adjustments are made directly by using the central part of the keyboard and 3 button, which is not very practical and rather dangerous at the beginning. Any other MIDI parameters are not editable, it has an interest in s' to rely on its expander. The manual is like the keyboard, simple but very limited


I use it for 1 year and I'm not disappointed, the game is really nice, it is convenient because it can easily be transported on its own. It is therefore a good master keyboard but do not hope to control the parameters of complex MIDI.Le value for money is good, I think that it can be found for about 700eur. I am not disappointed with my choice but you have to learn from one of its competitors, the MC1000 to Oberheim.
