I use my keyboard mainly for sounds of piano/strings and stuff like that,
so I need one that'll have:
1) Good velocity-range
2) At least 5 but [b]preferebaly more[/b] octaves
3) Decent touch, so I don't feel like i'm playing on toy
In this order of priorities.
I want to spend 100-200$ tops, but I would like to stay around 150$.
I saw some m-audio, alesis and avid options,
but I wanna know which of them is reliable and actually has good velocity range
Thanks in advance for the help. 8)

I heard that although m-audio keys in general are awful, the 88es(which is in the price range) is quite good and have decent velocity response and feel, as well as being pretty reliable...

In this price range the most commonly problem is the action of keys. In my opinion the M audio keyboards has decent feeling. Take a look at the M audio keystation 61. It has 61 velocity-sensitive and semi-weighted keys, pitch bend and modulation wheels (price approximately 150 - 180 $). If you take it new from the store is bundled with the ignite music software. Ignite is an entry level Daw witch allows you to record instantly your musical ideas. .
