Are velocity curves for note off a standard for master keyboards? I was
searching the web for some master keyboards, but only read the seller
informations. Hm, they have a lot of features, arpeggiator, faders,
dynamic pads etc.. I wonder if it's possible to manufacture a master
keyboard in a far smaller edition than big companies do without
exceeding the price level. Developing a master keyboard and than selling
it as an assembly kit might reduce coasts, but there are also some
offers on the market. Btw. a friend has one of Doepfer's first master
keyboards and it's a bad keyboard, while later master keyboards from
Doepfer should be good once.
