Nektar announces new 88 key MIDI controller

Just saw this article which looks quite promising!

Roland announced one too – I saw it at NAMM

Nice! :slightly_smiling_face:
But what makes the Nektar more attractive to me is the semi weighted keyboard and aftertouch, which the Roland doesn’t seem to have.

The Roland doesn’t have Aftertouch? I didn’t notice that.

I just guess this, because i haven’t found a word about it.


I took a look at Thoman, seems there is really no aftertouch

WRT the Nektar, I would have been shocked at a roughly $300 US 88-note semi-weighted keyboard to have aftertouch. None of the other Impact models have aftertouch either.


I tend to interpret the term “pressure sensitive keys” as aftertouch, and they also speak of aftertouch when they describe the routing options…
