I decided to go ahead and grab the A88 for my Jupiter today. One thing for sure... It's really damn long. Looks like solid build quality though.

I want the VPC too. Just for a different setup. I bought the A88 because I'm lazy and like the fact that it is optimized for the Jupiiter. I need controllers for the Jupiter setup.

Been messing around with it and am quite pleased. Nice integration with the Jupiter and good ergonomics for a controller. Keybed is pretty good although not a pianists dream by any stretch. Very good for covering a variety of duties though.
