Since I'm doing a comprehensive portable piano journey, I acquired the Bugatti of folding pianos for your viewing pleasure: the Vax77

That is a legendary portable. Thank you for taking the time to show it to us.

Why not try running MIDI CC#88 (high resolution) with PianoTeq?

The first one: https://reverb.com/item/4990831-infinite-response-vax77
$4882 for a controller like that? And it's not even a VPC?

The second one: https://reverb.com/item/40858455-infinite-response-vax77-controller-keyboard
$2199 for a controller like that? And it's not even a VPC?

Polyphonic aftertouch. Optical sensors for continuous key location information (instead of just two or three sensors). Magnesium chassis for light weight. Mainstage integration before anyone else had done anything of the type. And yes, it folded. IIRC, it originally sold for around $3500.

But what do you mean, not even a VPC?

Not VPC-1? No that is my favorite digital piano controller and it’s a much better piano.

This review series is solely focused on ultraportable keyboards that can be taken in flights, etc and can control software pianos.

Things like the VPC and MP11 are in a deferent universe. I would never choose any portable wonder over those for every day use.

I started this ultraportable series because such reviews don’t exist outside promo videos or people treating them like novelty toys that don’t understand their potential.

The Vax77 did too much and was too expensive. The first mainstream company that sells one of their decent 500 dollar weighted controllers that folds like the Vax77 will have a goldmine.
