    I'll have my QSC K12 paid off in October. I have always dreamed of owning a Virus TI2 keyboard.

    $500 a month for 6 months...

    Just curious - if money were no object what keyboard would you buy? Or maybe already own?

    Don't even dream about it unless you have a $100 Million Movie Budget. Those are the usual customers for the Music Computing's Stuff.

    I don't think they make it. But let's try:

    Start with what I've got: Arturia Keylab 88 controller
    - change out the Fatar keybed for a Kawaii
    - waterfall style keys
    - Give me a K2600-style ribbon controller
    - Improve the build-quality on the faders
    - Ditch the endless encoders, and give me traditional pots
    - I wouldn't mind a built-in sound engine with Piano, Rhodes, rudimentary B3 patch and Sawtooth lead, just for when everything else fails (it's never happened, but who knows).
    - Lastly, throw in a MacBook Pro with 32GB of RAM (I'm still waiting!)

    Not a Kawaii Keybed but a Kurzweil PC3K8 comes close on that.

    88 Piano style keys Fatar TP40
    Optional Ribbon Controller Available. Simple Plug attachment.
    Full set of 9 drawbars/assignable faders.
    VAST Sound Architecture. Kickass Triple Strike Pianos and Hammond B3 sounds.
    32 Assignable/Controllable Zones.

    32 Gig Macbook? Ask Santa :D :D :D

    Gary ;)

    Santa's not the problem here, Apple literally doesn't make one. I would buy it in a heart beat if the did, my MainStage project is running out of juice at 16GB.

    I don't really see how your list gets me much closer than what I already have. I can purchase an optional USB ribbon controller, and I already have everything else on that list. Except my controller is a TP/100 not a TP/40.

    Ribbon isn't that much of an issue anyway, now that I have a Seaboard. Though if I were making my dream traditional keyboard, that would be on it.

    I don't want some all singing, all dancing piece of technical wizardry. For me I'd be overjoyed to own a pristine Farfisa Combo Compact or Vox Continental.

    I've owned a few Farfisas back in the day. You could use and abuse the pazingle out of those things and they'd never let you down
