Akai MX73 keyboard action

Post by Michael.G » Fri Aug 07, 2020 1:14 am

I got this controller for next nothing. Yes, it's heavy, but the features combine beautifully with my Mac and Mainstage. I am currently using a Roland A30 controller, but like to use the Akai instead, except for one thing...the action of the Akai is not as fast or snappy as the Roland,

I've read reviews that describe the action as different than what I'm experiencing. So it makes me wonder if there are some things I can do to improve the action...name it easier to play and get more speed from the keys.

Lubrication. It was pretty dirty when I got it
