    Hello everyone
    I'm new to this board but look forward to reading all the posts.

    I am in search of the smallest casio keyboard with the following requirments
    Touch sensative
    USB midi
    The microphone in port would be a nice option if available
    SD card port would be great also if the internal sounds were good to play SMF in case the computer were to crater( nice backup )

    I am trying to use the keyboard as a controller on my computer with One man Band and then an ketron sd2 module.

    The goal here is portability, I play guitar with my own backing tracks and also play keyboard Live with rythmes.

    I am on the airplane a certain amount so I would like to have a very small keyboard.

    At present I find casio to be the only keyboard that meets my criteria 10lbs and very short ( I have an older WK8000 which is awesome keyboard but a bit large for my need.

    All I can find is info on the current casio keyboards. and appears the 2200 is the smallest and most affordable.

    Has anyone ever seen a hack of a Keyboard where the keys have been removed from the keyboard and cut in half so the keyboard woulf fold in half?

    I have never had one apart so I don't know if this is even possible.

    Thanks

    Well, I must say 10lb is a tough barrier for full size 61 keys......
