    I`m coppin a midi keyboard, i was in the yamaha shop yesterday and wanted to try out some midi keyboards. But shit, when i played the piano that one with piano keys was a lot better then others but when i played strings n cellos i felt myself uncomfortable. The keys were too hard n shit...I can`t decide, i`m composer thats why i`m trippin bout it. And damn, piano n string instruments r my fav. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    do you mean the actual keys on the keyboard were too hard, like a piano instead of a keyboard? if that is the case, then just get the one with the softer keys it will be a lot easier to play

    or do you mean the sounds were too hard? then any synth can be tweaked you can adjust the attack and shit i would go back and try to figure out how to tweak the sounds...

    1)Take the keys out of piano n put em into MIDI keyboard - MIDI Keyboard with piano keys
    2)Take the keys out of phantom or korg, put em into MIDI keyboard - MIDI Keyboard with synth keys. There two type of keyboards, same keyboards but different motherfucking keys.
    So MIDI keyboard with piano keys versus MIDI keyboard with synth keys.
    i unno bout that..Maybe i explained it wrong, i unno.

    what you are saying is making you sound really retarded. maybe you worded it wrong or some shiit.

    seems like your saying

    the keys on a midi keyboard are heavier then those on a synthesizer?

    maybe you havnt realized but actually keys come in all different weights.. ive played on pianos with fucking super heavy ass keys. and some with light ones. it has nothing to do with one being a midi keyboard and being a synth. there is no designated weight for midi keyboards and one for all synthesizers

    so wat the hella reyou talking about is my question..

    Yeah, yeah that`s what i`m talkin bout...That keyboard with heavy ass keys was good for piano but it wasn`t that good for strings nahmean. But keyboard with light keys was good for strings but bad for piano.. So the problem is i can`t decide which one to buy...And all i want is some oppinions or suggestions.

    yeah i think he was playing with weighted keys...weighted keys are good in some situations...but not really hiphop...and i feel bad for anyone doing drums on weighted keys
    get something non-weighted...most weighted keys are on 81 key-boards
