Re: Which one to buy? Arturia keylab 88 essential or Nektar Impact GXP88

I have had a good experience with my nectar impact 61. My set up is similar to what you envision. The nectar is my light, cheap, thing to move around and tinker. The knobs/faders are occasionally handy but they are not a needed in my workflow (more of a mouse and keyboard guy). I have a Yamaha P60 ...

Re: Which one to buy? Arturia keylab 88 essential or Nektar Impact GXP88

Ahh, well I can't speak from experience with the Nektar but I do own a number of Arturia products, both hardware and software, and I'm very happy with all of them. Here is the SoundOnSound review of the Arturia, in case you've not read it already. The only thing that I'd be mindful of is that the v...

Re: Which one to buy? Arturia keylab 88 essential or Nektar Impact GXP88

If learning to play piano is an objective then I think you would be better off with a weighted (or at the very least, semi-weighted) keyboard even if it doesn't have as many controllers on it as others. Controllers are nice to have but are not essential for music production, and you can always pick...

Re: Which one to buy? Arturia keylab 88 essential or Nektar Impact GXP88

If you’re going to replace in a couple of years, I wouldn’t get either of these. I’d go for something cheap, like the M-Audio 88 semi weighted, you can’t go wrong with these, good value for money, and cheap enough to have kicking around for gigs and stuff, when you upgrade. Thank you for your sugge...

Re: What should I choose Digital Piano or Keyboard?

There is a difference between an instrument and a MIDI controller. The M-Audio Keystation 88 is a MIDI controller. It has no onboard sounds of its own and relies completely on soft-synths and/or other hardware synthesizers to provide actual sound. There is a place for MIDI controllers - I have a co...

Re: What should I choose Digital Piano or Keyboard?

The main disadvantage of just a midi keyboard is that you always need to have a sound source hooked up and there may be latency through a computer. If you just want to sit down and practice it can be a pain. I'd suggest getting the piano and a cheap synth action midi controller or old synth and hav...

Re: What should I choose Digital Piano or Keyboard?

The main disadvantage of the digital piano when using it as a MIDI controller is that it doesn't have any controllers for pitch bend or expression. If you want a piano feel on a keyboard that includes controllers then take a look at something like the Studiologic SL88 which is about the same price ...
