Can anyone reccomend a midi keyboard that fits these requirements. Keyboard Controllers

Can anyone reccomend a midi keyboard that fits these requirements.

I have an older model M audio keystation. It has done it's job, but as of right now I have not found a way to adjust the velocity curve on it. It simply cannot export higher velocities no matter how much I bang on the keys.

To replace it I bought a Nektar Impact GX61. The two main things I wanted from this keyboard was slimness (the keystation is a little bulky on my high desk), and more importantly a way to adjust velocity curve. The GX would have been great beside the fact that the keys were incredibly noisy, so it had to go back.

I am looking for something exactly like the Nektar Impact GX61, but without noisy keys. Is there anything anyone can reccomend that is also as slim? I already tried the Alesis V61 at guitar center and the keys were also noisy on that one.

Also if anyone happens to know of a way to fix the issue with the keystation, that would help as well!

Rough combinations to find.

The quality of the keys is proportional to the size and flagship status. Big workstations get the good weighted keys.

to keep costs reasonable, I would look at some Older Kerzwiel synths.

The thing is I don’t necessarily need wheighted keys, just something where the velocity isn’t broken and the keys aren’t really noisy. Slim is a desire but definitely a luxury.
