I have been using MIDI controller keyboards for some time now, and although they are suitable for music production, sometimes I want to just play the piano or play something that feels like a piano. Most portable synthesizer type keyboards have light or semi weighted keys. This makes quite a difference to your playing.
I have been thinking about purchasing the Korg SV1 since the price has dropped recently. It has weighted keys, heavy but still portable to some extent, and the sound is perfect for Neo Soul lovers. I don’t need the full 88 keys so the 73 key model would be perfectly fine.
Here in Japan I can buy a new one for around JPY 100,000 (USD 800) which I think is a very good price for such a great sounding keyboard.
For DAW tutorials I would still use the MIDI controller keyboard through as that is easier.
