Help!! Keyboards with poly aftertouch!!
« on: September 06, 2004, 04:58:17 pm »
Hi am totally new to the soft synth scene but after many years of listening to the great Vangelis I have decided to purchase the Arturia CS-80V soft synth for use with cubase sx.

I understand that to use this software you need a midi controller with 'polyphonic' aftertouch [i have a video of Vangelis demonstrating this on a real cs-80] but most controllers i have looked at only have touch reponse or touch sensitive keys.

Is it common for controllers to only use touch sensitive keys?

Can anyone out there help me in deciding/recommending  what keyboard controller is ideal to get the best out of this Vst plugin.

I am not a rich man but would rather get a good controler that will last me many happy years, rather than a really cheap onethat i will resent buying later.

 but after saying that if anyone knows of any good and 'cheap' controllers out there,  then I would be extremely Appreciative and grateful to anyone of you for any help or advice on this matter..........thanks ...........Colin.

You can watch this topic :


There's other keyboards with polyphonic aftertouch,
but low-cost ones are not in general.
