I have to disagree. They kept the FSX keybed of the Motif XS/XF not to save development costs (for once), but because it *really* is a good keybed. As I said before, it's a ROHS compliant version of the excellent FS keybed you can find on the EX5, SY99, Motif/ES and Korg Trinity, Triton, Oasys76 (unfortunately not on the Kronos).Saul wrote:Your right, doesn't tell us anything at all really.
I smiled when I read this :As someone who is definitely a bit of an old cynic I read that more as "If we use the same keybed as in the Motif we save a fortune developing a new one and hence increase the bottom line"MONTAGE still utilizes the same action that our artists and musicians love and have commented on from the MOTIF XS and XF: FSX on the MONTAGE6 and 7 and Balanced Hammer (BH) on the MONTAGE8. These remained the same because time and time again our artists and customers have commented on how much they love the FEEL of the MOTIF
The FSX keybed gives the player almost the same feeling as the FS keybed:

That's a very pleasant sensation, very different from the "springy" sensation of ordinary synth keyboards on which the resistance is simply proportional to the depressing of the key.
