Agree with the title. One would think that dedicated midi controllers would all have great feel. But the only some most expansive ones do. When most non-midi controller keyboards have great key feel.



Why are so many users in this thread banned ? Did novation, m-audio and akai complained to KVR admins

Honestly, the mouse is the best synth controller there is when you are programming in a sequencer. And MIDI is a very old and not very dynamic protocol compared to DAW automation which has much finer grained resolution and control.
Are you being sarcastic or you don’t realize you contradicted yourself ?

I now noticed OP said the Impulse has the best keys of the bunch.

I hated those more than anything else, how it pretends to be weighted keys and are super shallow.

While I would agree they aren't good key action in controllers the Impulse will be near the bottom for me.

All midi KBS are rubbish and have software issues as well.

WE are living in the Greed age of humanity after all.

Yes yes. We know that you have an issue with your keyboard now. ;)

Try a different cable. The Impulse has already wrecked two cables here. Also try another USB port. And best keep your issue in a single thread, instead of doing half a dozen of posts for the same thing.
