Roland A90 EX

The Roland A-90 is an 88 key weighted, piano-style action, midi controller keyboard. The A-90 EX is the exact same keyboard but with an expansion pack that adds some pretty usable internal sounds (without this expansion, the A-90 is a controller only). Though this keyboard is almost 20 years old, it is still the best weighted action keyboard controller I have ever used. The keys feel awesome and have a very even response across the keyboard. It is well built and still functions perfectly after many yeas of heavy use. The midi routing options are incredible. Nothing on the market today comes close. If you have a lot of outboard synths, drum machines, and sound modules, this will be the control center at the heart of your studio.The one downside is that it doesn't have the assignable knobs and sliders you get on machines now a days; but you get so much more. As soon as I come across a keyboard that has a better feel, more reliability, or better functionality I will sell my A-90 EX. But since that hasn't happened yet, I'm hanging on to my 20 year old keyboard.
