    Nice Board, but NOT for live performance

    Comments about Studiologic VMK-176plus Controller Keyboard:

    I purchased this to replace my aging and heavy Kurz. My plan was to go to an all-module live rig with the VMK-176plus as my main board. The VMK-176plus appealed to me because of its hammer-action keyboard, reduced size (vs. 88-key boards), and lighter weight (vs. the Kurz). I had planned to control three modules and a smaller keyboard with it. Almost immediately I hit a snag: no zones. No layers. You can only control one module at at time (unless you put two on the same MIDI channel, then you can't select programs from the VMK). So that was a deal breaker all by itself. Secondly is the ENORMOUS lag time in switching set-ups with the VMK. It takes approx. 4 seconds to go from one set-up to another - which can be an eternity in a live performance. Additionally, there is some lag in scrolling through the set-ups. Very unwieldy in a live performance. Why would Studiologic build a reduced size, lighter weight board that's NOT intended for live performance? If Studiologic had incorporated zones and a quicker processor, I'd be raving about this board. It's easy to set up, map, program. The keyboard action is really quite good. The board is slightly "plastic-y", but seems durable enough. Just not for live performance.
