61 keys masterkeyboard suggestion

Hello everybody

I need to get rid of my M-Audio Oxygen 61 since I don't get to grips with it's key and velocity sensitivity. I'm a somewhat trained piano player (own a piano too) and the velocity values my Oxygen is sending are more or less random. No expressive subtle playing possible, at least not for me.
So, can anybody recommend a good masterkeyboard with 61 keys? All I need is good (realistic) velocity sensitivity and USB compliancy. Also a modwheel and one or two sliders would be nice. The most important thing is really the combination of touch and velocity sensitivity. It should be able to capture the nuances of my playing (and of course the keys should allow to play so). If this is the case, I don't mind whether the keys are nonwheighted or hammeraction.
Now, before I get out and have to try thousands of models, could you suggest anything to help me narrow my search?
Thanks in advance

I own an EMU XBoard.

They're nice bits of kit - lovely feel.

I have an Axiom and have not had any problems, but I'm not a trained pianist either.

not a pianist either...
check Cakewalk A-800PRO
I like the keys feel and response, and it has those extra gadgets.


cheers
