I’ll second that - a good, mid-price option.
@Torsten, do you find that any of the built-in velocity curves are satisfactory? I couldn’t get good results with any of them, even tweaking plugin velocity curves. (My main acoustic piano plugin is Ivory II.) I now always route MIDI input from the A88 through a custom software velocity curve, regardless of which plugin I’m playing with it.
One minor practical consideration is that the A88 is not very deep; consequently the buttons and knobs are all to the left of the low end, which means it’s longer than usual, and doesn’t fit in some standard size bags or cases where other 88-note keyboards would. If you went out with the A88 as your only keyboard, it doesn’t have the space to rest music or other units on it.
I’m from a classical and then jazz background, and it doesn’t quite give me the precision of velocity/volume control I’d really like. Only a top-end keyboard would give me that… and that’ll have to wait until I can afford it. The A-88 is pretty good for the money, though .
