If the keybed on the 76 feels better than my Novation ReMote 61 MK2
if the effects and audio engine are high enough quality (not some weird ass dumbed down compressed waveform Motif-only-in-name thing)
then I’ll sell my FS1R for this. I sincerely miss having a good Yamaha keybed as a master and I don’t care that much the formant stuff in the FS1R…I’m more happy stacking with AWM2 breathy stuff.
If I didn’t have this crazy chain of Master Kbd Controller > MIDI Interface > DAW/sequencer > MIDI Interface > Vintage Rack Synths, I’d use a DX7 as a controller, too…
but the latency introduced with so many 5-pin MIDI bus interconnections is so bad by the time it gets to triggering the final sound module that I have to use USB wherever possible to try and shave down any latency where I can. Thus I’m relegated to controller keyboards which have MIDI over USB…and most of them have sucky keybeds.
If I want a synth with maximum expressive control from my hands, I’d go for the Medusa. XYZ sensitivity on individual pads on the grid, possible MPE support to be added later. Or perhaps a combo of Roli Seaboard (Block version if budget is low) and Micromonsta.
