  1. Looks lovely, but I’d need for the keys to be three times that size to even remotely make use of it. My hands are a great size for piano, but not so much for the brave new world of teensy, button-like devices. One-finger playing is certainly respectable for a fair number of things, but if you stop there, you’re missing out on a larger world of weirdness. I recommend traditional keys as a main tool. IMO, its a vital anchor for touch pads, any free-standing rhythm device and all of your softsynths.
