IK Multimedia iRig Keys Pro
As a package deal with SampleTank 3.0 this is a great deal. I have used many keyboards since 1987, Roland, Rhodes, Yamaha, Casio, Studio Logic, E-mu, Ensoniq, Alesis, Kawai, Kurzweil, Korg. Most are very playable, some were not. Keyboard controllers have been very disappointing to me and have not seen many that fit my demanding detail in performance. But the IK iRig Pro passes my critical tests as a good synth action controller. Great feel and controllable velocities so playing is effortless. As a pianist who must perform on the given piano at the concert hall, I have gotten quite good at adapting to the action and voicing / tuning of the piano at hand. But some keyboards/ controllers simply can't be adapted to in a short time because of difficult actions to control and bad physical feel of the key. The iRig Pro is easy to control and predictable and have adapted to it in just a few hours of playing. A good keyboard to go with a good software package SampleTank 3.0.
