New Midi keyboard

I’m constrained by space and the fact that this is the only keyboard in my setup (apart from the Minibrute which has few and crappy keys and the Odyssey which doesn’t do midi out), so a fully weighted keyboard is out. I agree that some stuff is more rewarding to play on a piano style keyboard but mostly I’m in for faster and lighter keys.
What I would really want is just a 61 key keyboard with a quality keybed, aftertouch, midi out, wheels and nothing else but it seems this type isn’t available anymore. All the stripped down models lacks aftertouch.

It is a pretty old piece of junk, but it is really freakin’ awesome, to be honest. I have full piano-playin’ love back in the mix, and the dynamics are neat too. Weighted keys are really worth the effort. Everything else sits on top, so I still have Fatar keybeds if I want them, but Yamaha weighted controllers are lovely.

While I wouldn’t recommend a CLP-30 (coz its a bit janky after all these years, although I love janky pianos, so ymmv..), perhaps there is another ‘fully-weighted piano controller’ option in the mix?
