Bizarre VAX77 Foldable Music Keyboard

Infinite Response’s VAX77 is a very bizarre foldable MIDI control keyboard, set to be released at the upcoming 2009 NAMM Show.

It’s an interesting high-end portable MIDI controller, but at $2450, it’s also a premium MIDI controller.

Is it worth an extra two grand to have a foldable keyboard?

  1. This seems like a gimmick. The folding thing is nice – but it also seems like it could be a new opportunity for something to break.

    Also, the price is insane!

  2. It is a great idea. Very specific items for specific markets do cost more s that is not new. I’m sure, if the cash comes in they will bring other foldable models with a cheaper price. Do i need one? nope! but for someone who gigs around a lot that could be great it has a LCD screen..so more power thru upcoming software update…

    I wish them the best… create jobs..create oportunities..and let the free market decide…

  3. I hope they do well just because no one is building a keyboard with both poly AT and release velocity.

    I don’t need the folding feature , and I’d prefer a semi-weighted, synth action instead of a weighted piano action, but maybe if they sell a good number of these they can expand to other models.

    The market for gigging keyboard musicians who need to fly with their controller is… not large. If you’re flying to a gig is is so difficult to get a backline company to supply a MIDI controller?

  4. It ain’t just for flying. In bigger cites you gotta deal with stairs, buses, trains, subways, lots of other people, elevators. So, on a completely local level, this thing rocks. It would fit in ANY CAR.

    I want a Nord Stage 76 that folds. That’d save me $400 R/T each time I flew with it, versus the conventional design. Clavia? Are you listening?

  6. This is great for us gigging keyboardists. But, why such an astronomic price tag? I would love to have one but most of us in the real world can't afford almost 3 grands for a controller. I hope Yamaha, Roland, or Korg come out with a more affordable option for us maybe out of Asia where labor costs less.
