Do the 110 and 150 have the same, or at least comparable, actions?

Do the 110 and 150 perform equally well with Pianoteq? (Specifically, does the 110 allow for as much dynamic range as the 150 when using Pianoteq?)

I've tried the 150's action and I liked it. I can get an excellent deal on a used 110, and I'd mainly be using it with Pianoteq anyway, so it'd be worth it imo.

Thanks for your input in advance.

The PX-110 is several generations older than he PX-150 that you have tried:

- PX-110
- PX-120
- PX-130
- PX-135
- PX-150

The PX-150 features a very nice keyboard action, while the PX-110 action is technically inferior, and will have been used for several years.

In my opinion, if you liked the PX-150 action, you should buy the PX-150.

Cheers,
James

Noticeably different. I liked the x10 actions better than the x30 actions, but not as much as the x50 actions. Besides the feel of the mechanism, the key surfaces are different as well.

The x10 does not have the high resolution MIDI velocity that the 150 has, which Pianoteq recognizes. And IIRC, it doesn't have the third sensor, either. For your purposes, I think you really want the 150.

Actually... I prefer the action of the Px110 than anything up to Px140 (haven't tried Px150 yet...).

It has that key noise, but as far as feeling and touch I find that it's better...

Anyone else feel the same?

Also: "High resolution MIDI velocity"? The range is 0-127... What else is there?

The MIDI standard includes the possibility to extend the velocity range to 14 bits by using a specific CC message, a feature that some of the latest Casio DPs implement MIDI High Resolution Velocity Prefix
