Lightweight, 88-key Hammer-action Controller
Over the years, Studiologic has earned a sterling reputation for their high-quality Fatar keyboard actions. Now the company extends that legacy with the SL88 Studio, a lightweight 88-note MIDI controller keyboard featuring Fatar's latest fully weighted keybed technology. You'll delight to the touch of the TP/100LR Premium Hammer Action, which delivers the authentic feel of an acoustic grand piano. You will also appreciate the quick setup and navigation afforded by the SL88 Studio's intuitive user interface, as well as enhanced performance, DAW, and plug-in control via three X/Y stick controllers. If you're a serious pianist who needs a truly portable 88-key weighted controller for stage and studio, the Studiologic SL88 Studio should be on your short list.

The ideal gigging controller
It may sport a fully weighted 88-note keyboard, but the Studiologic SL88 Studio is delightfully portable. Thanks to its lightweight Fatar TP/100LR action, it weighs in under 31 pounds - which is very much appreciated by gigging Sweetwater keyboardists. The SL88 Studio is also thoroughly professional caliber and built like a tank with a rugged all-metal casing and impact-resistant synthetic endcaps that protect the keybed and provide a sure grip when transporting.

TFT color display for total access
The Studiologic SL88 Studio features a bright, easy-to-view TFT color display that, in conjunction with a high-quality 6-way controller knob, lets you quickly and easily navigate through all SL88 Studio functions - a very intuitive setup. Three push buttons to the right of the control knob bring you back to the top level from any location in the system with just a single press.

X/Y stick controllers for real-time control
Studiologic spec'd the SL88 Studio with three X/Y stick controllers for expressive performance and direct manipulation of sound parameters. Stick 1 (which you'll typically use for pitch and modulation control) is spring-loaded in both X/Y axes. Stick 2 is spring-loaded in the X axis only. Stick 3 is free in both the X and Y axes, which is perfect for crossfades, pans, and parameter control.

Suggestions For A FULLY Weighted Hammer Action MIDI Controller?

...Motif XS Rack 5. Roland Integra 7. And you can pair these with something like a Studio logic controller keyboard like the SL88 Studio. Typically modern controller keyboards have the features to allow you adjust their velocity response internally, so the challenge I described with my KX88 is a thing of the past. I must be frank...
