I want to buy a digital piano and I was almost decided for the Yamaha P95 but now I have seen the incoming P105 and the new Casio px150 and px350. 

My budget is also not a lot around £500 and a new P95 is in Amazon at £560 or second hand £400 with stand. 

I like the new piano sound, aux output and split feature of the P105 but it has the same action as the P95 and apparently no MIDI connectors.
The Casios I haven't investigated them too much because of the price. The px150 doesn't have midi connectors neither. 

I'm concerned about midi connectors because I have a midi interface Edirol UA-4FX and I would like to take benefits of it. 
So... my main doubt is: can I get similar experience with a P95+UA4FX+PC software for split voices and rhythms in real time than the one I could have just with the P105? 

What about the latency?

The P-105 does MIDI over USB, so connect it to your computer via USB and you still have all the MIDI capabilities the P95 has. If you're trying to connect via MIDI to a stand-alone MIDI module, then that's another story.

What I would like to know is if I can make up for some of the missing features of the P95 and of course do others.

For example,if I run a software to allow me to split the keyboard in two voices and put at the same time some rhythms is it going to fly everything apart!?
