Fully weighted Keyboard 66-88 key suggestions.

Rebuilding my lab. I've had the Novation Nocturn 61 key midi controller before. It was great, semi-weighted keys. I now want something that's fully weighted and possibly a synth that could be used as a midi controller than just a midi controller itself.

Currently looking at a Yamaha MOX8

Then there are the Motif's. Anyone have any suggestions?

A few folks have told me they really like how my Kawaii MP8-II plays. Wooden keys, faux ivory. I am just learning to play piano so can't really comment on it myself.

I've tried a Motif before, never tried the MOX8, but the Motif was really nice.

If money's an issue, perhaps check out the Oxygen 88 as well.

M-AUDIO - Oxygen 88 - 88-Key Graded Hammer-Action USB MIDI Controller

I got it for really cheap a while ago and find it useful. While it doesn't really feel like playing a piano to me, the keys are still heavy and slow enough to do the job when I need them to behave a tad more realistic than on my regular piece-o'-plastic midi keyboard. And again, its affordable. But heavy as ****.

Edit: sorry, I missed the synth-part.
