The best controller keyboard out there

santamorphic, 06.05.2015
I understand Hans Zimmer uses this controller keyboard in his studios. Though is is probably more elegantly built into his furniture.

The keyboard inside is a Fatar and I believe it has three different resistance levels in the low mid and high ranges. I used to have a Nord Piano 88 purely for the way the keybaord responded to touch but I never use the piano sounds. I only wnated it because it felt right under the fingers. Eventually I found out that the Doepfer LMK4+ had nearly the same keybed and so took the plunge.

Really very happy with it replacing my Nord Piano as a controller. The keybed is better because of the three-way split on the keyboard rather than two for the Nord Piano, from what I understand. Also it doesn't have that grindy crunch when pressing down the keys on cheaper controllers. For instance my experience with the M-Audio Keystation was not good. The keys all had a heavy resistance that felt clunky and difficult and not particularly piano-like. Of course the price-difference is a factor, but if using an 88 key controller keyboard day-in-day-out the LMK4+ is an excellent workhorse.

The only one minor flaw is the power supply. It is a European plug, so a converter is needed or a replacement power supply. Also the power input on the back of the unit is non-standard, using an XLR type connector. But once set up and working who cares.

Replacement for 25 years old predecessor - good quality as expected

26.06.2016
This device has been purchased as a replacement for a previous model of the same model - after 25 years of intensive use (and some transports) I had some keys with MIDI errors.
Anyone who knows and needs the advanced MIDI controller features of the LMK4, and who can not use controls above the keyboard does not miss the Doepfer.
The built-in keyboard is now somewhat weighted heavier than its predecessor, but plays very pleasantly.
If this copy is still 25 years on the road, I am satisfied.

PS: Also the old device works now again flawless: in the end was only a cleaning and a prophylactic rework of a soldering point necessary. I could do it myself - the Doepfer service has here top and extremely well advised!
