I needed a slightly larger keyboard than my EMU Xboard 25 to operate vst/vsti soft synths. I opted for the UMX490. It has 49 excellent quality keys. Not 'full weight' but similar to other synth keyboards I've played by the likes of Korg etc. I'm learning keyboard parts for my band although I'm not an authority on the subject - I'm not going to tell you how it's better than any other MIDI controller. It allows me to select and play patches of my choice quickly and without fuss. It is well made and doesn't feel like the cheapo guitar pedals for example. I'm delighted with it, it was reasonably priced and Thomann's service was excellent as usual. highly recommended.
