Interested in a fantastic-feeling 88-key semi-weighted controller with a ton of controls?

    Yah, I got the email about it. I'm hoping that doesn't mean he will stop posting here since everything is now hashed out with the issues that were going on. There are just too many forums to keep up with now, sadly.

    I don't think he is posting here. I say that because he didn't post here about the last masterclass he did. Of course I am only speculating.

    I play live for a living.
    I learned the hard way about an All In One keyboard.

    Here's my fast set stable set up...

    I would love to retire Solaris and grab another 88, designed by a programmer/performer.
    I'd set it on my top tier.

    I am watching this thread with great interest as I have been looking for an 88-keys controller for ages.

    Please Mike give us some picture concepts if you have it so it is much easier to discuss things further, give opinions, options, suggestions, etc...

    I have been thinking for quite some times to build my own controller, so it is refreshing to see that other individual have and are thinking alike.

    What I would say is that now a days there are resistant alternative materials to plastic and metal that can make a controller lightweight as well as robust, plus the solar power implementation is also something that I feel is possible.

    Cheers, Max

    Perhaps @mverta wants to concentrate on his own forum now? But not to post here where the target audience for this product is seem odd.

    Are you referring to the recent forum he created for his masterclasses?

    Well, I think he wants all of you to join his forum, if interested in his masterclasses or this keyboard. Here, he had to pay for his threads to be able to sell his masterclass. Now, he is putting that money in his own forum. I don't see where the problem is ... either you guys are interested and join or leave it ...

    I'm focusing on the new forum while wishing VI-C the best. Information on this project and my Masterclasses can be found there. My "target audience" is internally-motivated to come find me, which should help to keep my forum obscure, small, of little interest to developers, unpopular, and my project mostly off the radar. Now we're talking. :)

    Ha... they don't work anyway. No, in a world of constant bleating pressure to subscribe and like, I just prefer a contrarian stance.
