Hi all. I have a weighted 88-key controller that I love for my piano pieces. Just now starting to do orchestration and the Control S series appeal to me. For playing and controlling an instrument like the Picked Nylon, can I get away with the 49-key or do I need the 61 in order to utilize the full range of the instrument while also having real-time control? Same question for more of the orchestral sounds. Desk space is at a premium. Thank you.

    For orchestral sounds you will need S88, at least for some.

    I have used to have S61 and because I wanted full controll without switching, I went for S88. Beside size S88 difers from S49/61 also in keybed, S88 has weighted, while the rest semiweighted. And S88 is real big and heavy.

    The 49 keys version, if moved on the right octaves range, allows you to have in view all the assigned keys (selectors and patterns)
