    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    After having been frustrated with my Casio PX-560 as a midi controller, I needed an all-purpose 88-key key-bed that was not too heavy or too light in the action and the Nektar LX88 is the perfect happy medium (as I can comfortably perform a piano piece and still be able to lay down drum tracks and solos with ease.) The pre-programmed DAW configurations, make setting up utterly effortless, which is amazing. This keyboard has a very solid tactile quality to it for the price and my only issue with this controller is the location of the pitch & modulation wheels, as it makes for some awkward performances in some respects (I think Nektar tried too hard to conserve the length of this controller, as the effect wheels belong just left of the key-bed.)
