Sound Quality

Sure, it is possible to get a large velocity range out of the keyboard, but it has no consistency between the white keys and the black keys. In other words, the black keys are much harder to play (offer more resistance) than the white keys, so it is easy to play too hard/too little on them. Additionally, the closer to the base of the key you are, the harder it is to play, and this is even more exaggerated for the black keys. Because of this, I have to adjust the velocity curve in Logic to 50% (losing half of my dynamics) and then boost the velocity to +20 to get a reasonable response.


The build quality seems ok, seems pretty sturdy.
