Recommend to me a good stage keyboard?

Ideally I want the Nord Electro 2 (73 keys), but I need one NOW and don't have that much cash. Need something 61 keys+ that has one good Piano, decent organs and a harpsichord. Need something reliable, as it will be for gigging. I think that dragging my M-Audio keystation Pro 88 and my old laptop is...

I had the same problem. It's because the Motu will function as a stand-alone mixer as well as a soundcard. Open up the software on your computer (looks like a mixer) and you can fix it from there. I forget exactly what i had to to, but I think it was pretty straightforward once I opened the software.

Collect *almost all* and save??

I know, I know.... but is it really necessary to save all the multisamples from the EIC separately with each file? that is a pain and a waste of space....it would be nice if live did not feel compelled to copy the samples from it's own internal instruments over, and over, and over.... just my .02$ -...

I don't understand...is it audio feedback or electrical? Have you tried a ground lift or running your gear off one of those battery surge protectors to try and get a clean electrical signal? I used to get really nasty fuzz from my mixer outs before I moved locations...it was a dirty electrical curre...

I may get slammed for this..... If price is an issue (which it often is)...I would recommend a pair of sennheiser HD 202's. Consider it a temporary solution untill you can really pour some cash into it. Great transparency, pretty comfortable, not expensive. I had a thorough listen to about 15 pairs ...

If you are a Keys player...buy it. excellent grand piano and classic organ sounds. My consideration was my recent upgrade to the intel mac and the lack of available plugs....but now that I have it, I would recommend it fo sho! Easily worth 100$ Not to mention the printed manual.....always a definate...

Help me choose my synths!

Just switched to to the new intel iMac yesterday, I've got all the UB free plugins I can find but it looks like I need to actually buy some software this time. Too many of my sounds cannot be reproduced/substituted with the freebies. My plan is to buy one piece of hardware and one piece of software ...

That is worth 5 grand! As a keys player with an interest in jazz percussion that is the most attractive piece of ass i've seen in a long time.
