ProKeys 88sx digital piano

M-Audio announced the release of its ProKeys 88sx digital stage piano for computer-centric musicians. The stage piano features an 88-note keyboard with high-quality semi-weighted action, allowing the unit to weigh only 17 pounds. The piano dedicates all of its memory to seven sounds that players rely on constantly--- devoting extra attention to the multi-layer stereo samples of a Yamaha C7 concert grand as well as a Fender Rhodes, a vintage Wurlitzer, a Yamaha DX7, a Hammond B3, and a Clavinet. The piano also doubles as a USB MIDI interface and controller for recording and playback with PC or Mac, and incorporates MIDI performance controls including pitch wheel, modulation wheel, two footswitch inputs (both sustain and sostenuto) and expression pedal input. A standard MIDI Out jack allows control of outboard MIDI gear as well. The ProKeys 88sx includes two 1/4-inch stereo headphone jacks and costs $450.

    M-Audio continues to do a heck of a job. I own the M-Audio (Midiman) Radium61 that I use almost daily in my home studio. I've been waiting for an affordable 88-key semi-weighted portable keyboard for quite sometime.
