I'm currently looking to upgrade my studio controller keyboard from a 61 key Novation Remote SL61 to an 88 key model. The Novation is really nice, but I'm using a lot of sample libraries with keyswitches and having to shift octaves is both annoying and disorientates me. I've mapped the keyswitches to the drumpads and some of the buttons, but not all libraries use the same keyswitches.
Anyway, I'm not *too* bothered about bells and whistles like faders as I have them covered on other units, and I'm not sure whether to go semi-weighted or fully-weighted/graded. I've only ever used semi-weighted, but I feel that weighted may afford better control over velocity.
What are y'all using?
