    • I use microphones for almost everything, although I am not doing very many drum sessions nowadays. I used to record my keyboards through an amp and then stick a microphone in front of it. I don't really do that any more, and some of it is out of laziness, but a lot of it has to do with some of the stereo effects that I am using now seem to sound better direct.
    • That sounds pretty good. I had a Lenovo at work before. Not a Yoga, but it did bend into different configurations and had a touch-screen. The Dell I have, I just got, so I don't know everything that it does, but again, that touch-screen is awfully nice.
    • Yes, for wind instruments, vocals, accordion, hand percussion, and anything I can't get a direct line output from that sounds good (i.e. an organ with a built-in leslie that's bypassed with the direct out). With accordion specifically, I have zero choice given that there is no such thing as a good digital solution (well, a V-Accordion is decent but still not there and that's hardware). I did buy an acoustic guitar recently, so maybe I'll experiment with mic'ing that as I'm not crazy about the piezo pickup sound in recordings (it's fine live).   Otherwise, electric guitar, keys, bass, other stuff is generally direct, from synths, or in-the-box.
    • I do it all the time. Leslie, piano, drum kit, strings, brass, percussion, you name it. I love it!
    • Yeah, Allan, I have a Fantom 7 here as well and one of these days I’m going to update its review with stuff about the organ and wavetable modes. I like that its keyboard is quiet and fast. But the aftertouch is much closer to that all-or-nothing feel I was talking about.

    • A 76-key, lighter action K2700, similar to the one found in the original PC3, could quite easily tempt me to put my Fantom 7 up for sale. Kurzweil has a much stronger balance of sample quality across a variety of instruments.  And after reading about the K2700's aftertouch, there's simply no comparison. Thought I was going to jam a finger joint the first time I attempted aftertouch on my Fantom . 
    • That would be perfect !   ☺️   A.C.
    • zeronyne, sorry I missed your question earlier. I’m in agreement with ABECK that the aftertouch is very nice. You don’t have to tire out your fingers to hear just a little, but it increases proportionally from there. That is, it doesn’t go from nothing to full-blast too quickly. That said, for gigging I would welcome a semi-weighted version that still has piano-shaped keys with a lip, but a lighter action overall for playing all night. Like the 76-key K2600.
    • Good to know they read about former issues and wishes here ! Yes,- a 76 and/or 61-key version would be VERY welcome !!! I´d really like to replace my PC361 w/ that.   ☺️   A.C.
