Well, you seem to have quite made up your mind about how you're going to do things, so there's probably no point giving you any advice (even though you did ask for it, on another thread). Except this: I think you should do some study of piano pedag

What about the Novation Launchkey 49? I haven't tried that one myself, but I have a Novation SL MKii and it has the best synth-key action I've ever played. You should check if launchkey has the same action as the SL MKii.

Is this the same piano you were having a problem with last July? Did the problem go away and come back? What kind of piano is it? Does it have wooden keys or action? I don't know about the screeching noise, but it sounds like humidity is causing some

Without being able to test them yourself, it will be a shot in the dark. However, you can go with the name brands that have good warranties and good reviews to help narrow things down. I'm not well-versed in MIDI controllers, so I will refrain on s

Piano Practice gives good advice... and, TD is piano wise as well. I have both the Baldwin R (from the late 1990's) and an older Howard/Kawai 5'10" (same as the KG2) from 1969. The KG2 would likely have a heavier action than the Baldwin, but
