Yeah, what is that polyaftertouch keyboard??? I have never heard of such thing. Is this the same as regular key sensitive keyboard with the aftertouch capacity? Does "polyaftertouch" means that you can have the aftertouch assigned to each key? :?
I usually use my Alesis QS8 as a main MIDI controller. It has 88 regular piano keys with aftertouch. This thing feels like a regular keyboard of a grand piano. That's why I have bought it.
So, if there is a special "polyaftertouch" keyboard please let me know. I might be interested to get one (if someone still makes it). :wink:
Yes, polyaftertouch sends the aftertouch message for each key pressed.
It's much more expressive.
The QS8 seems have only the chanel aftertouch, which sends only
a global aftertouch value when some keys are pressed.
So the CS80 has polyaftertouch, and very few synths or controlers have
this function, and to use fully the CS80V this function is needed.
What I'm sure, the Prophet T8 is a good one for this, and with
sequential legendary sound at the same time, but of course
rare and expensive.
roland A50 and A80 do this too, the GEM S series have this too.
Ensoniq VFX too, but seems now we can't find any modern keyboards
which have this function.
