    I am looking for a cheap keyboard/midi controller that has a touch-sensitive option with a sustain pedal. Maybe something by Yamaha?

    I'm not clear here. Are you looking for just a controller with no sound sets? You need to specify what kind of sound sets you want, what size of keyboard (64, 72, 88?) and what kind of key feel (synth, semi weighted, fully weighted). You can search on this - there has been a lot of discussion - but it's really hard to refine the search.

    - I would like sound-sets, but they do not have to be of high quality. Maybe just a piano sound, and some synths.

    - 61 or more keys would suit me fine.

    - Key weight is not an issue.

    - Something with touch sensitivity that can be turned off.


    Thank you Bob for helping me clarify!
