Re: Quality MIDI keyboard controllers still available?

Funny you mention the MPK-261, it actually is something I'm mulling over - I've been toying with changing from the A-37 because of the problems I've always had - I thought it might have just been an age thing (the unit, not me...!) or even faulty so I'd considered the A-800 Pro but am wary that the ...
