Weight for a heavy touch: less than 20 kg (that is rare enough to be ON LINE!) -> 15 kg

heavy touch (as a former user is not touching the yamaha crazy, but for the price, c qd mm top well. made the joke with a good sound: using Pianoteq j + truepiano simultaneously rpart ds space (balance + treatment phsing to grate the stro) + + ableton some minor treatments over)

MIDI: 1 out and 1 in

Sustain a connection (Yamaha Band stingy!)

1 USB for power and control CONTRL Cubase.

Is there a arpegiatteur Intgr ... basic but fun


Reaching for the top prize, not perfect (otherwise you need to type in Rolands .... 30 kg with a lot of zros in the price!)

Yet as hard on this trs (23 years of piano, conservatory, classical, jazz, rock jou .... I just prs on everything that has the keys, is wood and mtal, qd c no carbon or ivory), well I was going ... frankly can play the keyboard and vari prcis and acdj standard .... and something pretty cool: you can change the pRSET VLOC of the hardware of a finger ... School yamaha!

Well as said above, if you want a touch of crazy ... is a real piano, a Roland RD RG JEnter or not ... so what

Jviens to have it, a good plugs and plays. Prvoir of drivers, mac mm. But at first point ngatif:'m forced to plug the usb + MIDI (so I took a USB 2) for a walk ... like the usb for power supply and MIDI for the CONTRL keyboard ... weird ... What would be so if the usb CONTRL nest for Cubase?

May be that there is another manipulation to ... follow.

Not yet read the manual ... which might explain something ;-)!

Another top: it is large ... while for transport, it is true that super annoying c ... but then it ask for his computer (laptop prcise I) and an MPD18 in order to have everything on hand .... live or stud ... well c just too convenient!

Then, solid matter ... ben the bottom of the wood is good compost .. but it is heavy ... but at least C + or - solid!

solid buttons and tapes PM: Yam jfais confidence ... exprience of these are the keyboards that take decades without flinching mm with a set heavy ... Just disassemble any time (1 every 5 years .. less) to maintain it: dpoussirer, see if he could nya no dchets of preventing the signal to pass (c VCU ...)

the buttons are enjoyable, mm if the whole is not top design (sober yamaha)

the trunk which includes all plastic is a little scary ... ct robustness but allows the mess to be transportable. Caution .. do not expect qd mm not take a hand like 88 or TMK my Keystation 88 es ... hand it is far, far away from the trs 27 kg from my old S80 or 30 kg of Rolands.

Otherwise bah c's all good.

less than 500 euros, while the touch is heavy and good prcis (c mm on the p85 parat it for the curious), some features (users of Steinberg ... c to you) and all that it is as basic Controller (4 assignable potentios pitchbd + wheel +) + weight below 5 (and jsuis nice!) 15 kg over all other keyboards heavy touch ...

Assurment the KX8 will be a hit, both in the homestudiste than in concert!


How long: 5:00

Have you tried bcp of other models: a yes!

Do again what you choose: YES! Finally, for now

Particularity: the mix: Price, touch heavy weight (my poor back), ergonomics (c qd mm top of any possible have on hand on the keyboard!)

Report qualitprix: Fatar VMK can be the 188 most? want! the ones I could not even try! Yeah but they are too heavy transport ....
