Things to Consider before You Buy

  • Keybed Feeling (Weight, Surface)
  • Graded Action or not?
  • Does it have Aftertouch?
  • Faders, Knobs, Buttons?
  • Programmable Banks?
  • MOD-Wheel + Pitch-Bend
  • Dimensions: height/width/depth
  • Stability, Design Quality
  • Inputs/Outputs: MIDI, Pedals, USB etc.

The quality of the keybed and the feeling when playing are the two most important aspects for me. But you might favor more on board faders and knobs. Good luck finding the perfect Master MIDI Keyboard with 88 keys for your music production workflow.
