My all time favorite action is that of my trusty Nord Electro 3 73! ;)

 

*ducking for cover* :D

 

:deadhorse:

 

 

 

Too much stuff, too little time, too few gigs, should spend more time practicing...!  🙄

main instruments: Nord Stage 3 compact, Yamaha CP88, Kurzweil PC4, Viscount KeyB Legend Live

I played one, and it is a perfectly nice feel, but I didn't find it to be exceptional.

 

Kurzweil figured out how to do a great feeling action on their Midiboard over 20 years ago, I'm surprised we're still struggling with this. Sure, it weighed 85 pounds, but the MP-10 is no featherweight. At its weight, it should be outstanding.

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our now not-so-new new video at https://youtu.be/3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out! And hopefully I'll have something new here this year. ;-)

The Kurzweil MIDIboard was originally made to work with the K250 rack version. The K250 also had a keyboard version, which used the same keyboard and some of the other same parts. This was prior to the K1000, K1200, K2000, K2500, and K2600 series; so the design was from the 1980's.

 

From what I've been told (I've never seen one up close) the action was wood and felt like a grand piano action. Result was a great feel, but a VERY heavy board.

 

Couple that with the fact that the early integrated circuits inside it are no longer being made - and the price which it would have to sell for - they can't justify making one now (although a modern version with really full MIDI capabilities, several inputs, several outputs, built in switching, etc.) would be a really, really great studio keyboard - or road keyboard for those fortunate to have a full road crew for setup).

Updating my old message here... since I hate "wrong" stuff to stand if I happen to remember writing it... As I just mentioned elsewhere, I don't like the feel of the MP-10 at all. I'm kind of surprised at the Keyboard Magazine quote, but it goes to show how subjective this kind of thing is.

 

My favorite piano action these days is the Roland FP-7F, though it's too heavy for me to cart around. I suspect I'd like it at least as much as the Midiboard if I had the opportunity to A/B them. (Plus at least you could get parts for it.)

Not much does. the VAX77 has poly AT and is supposed to have a wonderful feeling keyboard, and it weighs under 40 lbs...

It is wonderful feeling, and the most accurate and expressive electronic keyboard I've ever played, but it is not intended to have a piano action. It is kind of its own thing.
