And weighs less than half as much, is less than half the length folded, and has modern connections (MIDI/USB vs MIDI/cassette) built-in. $2500 in today's dollars would be a bit over $5k. I love my MIDIBOARD but, if I had the bucks for one of these, it would stay at home while the VAX travelled. BTW, it seems that the colour touchscreen can mimic sliders... ?
Comparing the Kurzweil MIDIboard, which cost $2500 in 1985, the VAX77 lacks 11 keys, 2 sliders, and 4 push buttons...

The beast arrived last Saturday, I got back from vacation on Sunday afternoon, and... ...Today, I broke it. :cry: No, seriously. The pitchwheel needed calibrating (Logic and MIDI-OX saw 8 or 9-120 instead of 0-128) and while waiting for a return email from Infinite Response, I went digging for a test mode. Aaaaand... that put it into OS update mode, which, without an OS update, basically killed the machine. IR offered to send me a new one, but I'll just wait for this one to get fixed. So my big VAX77 review will have to wait. Sorry, guys. In the meantime, here are some unboxing pics.
Two days ago, sir.

I just recently tried to buy a VAX77, but after placing my order I was told that they stopped production altogether. So unfortunate!
I just wanted to post this to let anyone who is thinking of selling theirs know that I am extremely interested in buying the keyboard from them. I am especially looking for the Ultra-Heavy keybed (although I will gladly consider Heavy as well).
Please PM me if you have a VAX77 you wanna sell or know someone who does.
Thanks and have a great week everyone!
