    I find XKey-37 the most responsive keyboard I have for playing realistically modelled instruments such as those from Sample Modeling. In particular the sensitivity of the aftertouch is superb and makes my Axiom Air 61 feel clunky. However, many instruments have a range greater than 3 octaves and, while using the octave keys is surprisingly easy (feels like changing registers on clarinet), and putting a second XKey behind on the same midi channel but with a different range is even better, I would love to have a 61 key or more version (and probably use two of those, one behind the other — the technology is so compact).

    The technology would seem extensible. The chassis is strong and would not flex. I assume any restrictions would be tooling cost and size of market demand. I wondered whether there were any plans for larger versions, and also how other users were using the currently technology to cope with the need for an extended range.

    Thanks so much for using our Xkey.
    Yes, some of customers also suggested to have extendable design, we are considering how to do it. Since we are small team, it will take more time to try it. In the meantime, using two of Xkey togetger could be a temporary solution.;-)


    I wish you guys had left one last key off.. that way you wouldn’t double up on the C you should end it at B instead. then you can put them seamlessly end to end.

    Thanks @CJ Adams! We know you guys love that, will try to find a good solution. 😉


    Should I post my idea here? or Should i email you about it? If you want an email let me know..
