Hi there. I'm looking for a keyboard for gigging: I need a light but versitile machine, if possible. 88 keys, weighted is pretty necessary for me, too. Mostly playing piano, organ, with a few random sounds here and there. Right now, I play a Yamaha P95, which is fine, actionwise and is probably the lightest 88 out there. However, I need better sound, especially organs. I started looking around and saw the Korg Krome 88. It sounds pretty good and I like the interface. However, the action seemed kind of crazy to me: way too light, like a cross between weighted & unweighted, but with this weird, delayed snap-back of the keys. Also, the key noise was pretty high and I play a lot of soft piano that might really get impacted by that. The thing is, I don't live very close to a store that sells these, so I can't really try them in a lot of places. Is it possible I just tried out a lemon? Does anyone have this keyboard and like it? If so, what do you think of the action and how did it figure into your decision?
I get that there's not much in this price range (would be extremely happy to deal with the weight of a Nord Stage 2 88 if I could afford it!) and wasn't thrilled by much else I saw but maybe I missed something. Any thoughts?
