Solid keyboard
zezic 17.09.2021
Nice, rock solid metal case (only sides are plastic).

Keep in mind that keys on SL73 Studio feels heavier than keys of classical piano, the action is viscous and if you want a faster and "lighter" keys it would be better to consider picking the SL73 Grand edition (or SL88). Otherwise, you will get a muscle training station :) I got used to it after tweaking the velocity curve, but obviously, the physical key return is still slow so it's not the best keyboard for the fast rhythmical same-key patterns.

What's good about the keys – their range of sensitivity is wide, I barely can hit the 127 velocity. What's strange is the aftertouch resolution which is very low, but I think that's not critical as it's rare to be used on the weighted keys. Quality of keyboard is good and I love the joysticks.

It works out of the box with Linux! It can send the program change MIDI events after configuring its program presets, so, I think, it's a nice keyboard to be used with Pianoteq installed on Raspberry Pi or similar ARM board.

Keyboard works well being powered from my PC's USB, I didn't notice any problems, so, no need to plug the dedicated power supply.

Conclusion: a rock solid, heavy, weighted keyboard in a metal case, probably, the best you can find for such low price. Want faster keys? Take a look at SL73 Grand.

Nice controller, but..
bittersweater 07.01.2022
+ Very nice and stylish appearance. + The keyboard is heavy like a real grand piano.

But there are also disadvantages.
1. In the first month of use, the sensitivity of one key became maximum. I solved this problem by lowering the sensitivity in the application.
2. It's hard to explain but. When playing the vst instrument, there was no sense of control over the sound, as for example on the Nord stage. Even playing on my lightweight Novation Launchkey 2 felt better. And I am a professional pianist.
3. When recording midi in Logic pro X - 2 notes are recorded instead of one. The problem goes away when you turn off 3 of 4 keyboard split zones.
4. Still not used to the XY controller.

As a result, I decided to sell it.

PD
You should have bought this yesterday!

This keyboard blew me away for the price. It has it all: A nice interface, multiple effect buttons, room for 4 pedals, weighted keys, aftertouch, and a sturdy metal housing!

I'm currently using it to record in pro tools and it works flawlessly!

The feel is just great, instantly recognizable as a quality instrument. Since I've bought this item I've played it more than my actual piano.

Would definitely recommend this keyboard! No cons as of yet.

Best value for money
giperman 09.08.2019
This is a great midi controller. The keys have perfect feeling for an average keyboardist. Pianist virtuoso may find them a bit lightweight and should prefer other options with heavyweight hammer keys. Very robust metal chassis and the knobs are high quality. The screen is bright. The size is just perfect for small home studios or transporting. Overall i think this thing is very very well prised for what it offers. Very recommended!!!
