Cluttered Clarity, ein Jazz-Quintet aus ehemaligen Berklee College of Music Studenten, spielte während ihrer diesjährigen Europa Tournee auch auf dem legendären Montreux Jazz Festival.
Pianist und Keyboarder Samson Mengsteab schätzt dabei besonders das natürliche Spielgefühl der Studiologic Keyboards in Verbindung mit den vielseitigen Möglichkeiten der MIDI-Steuerung:
„Thanks so much for letting me use the VMK-188plus on my tour with Cluttered Clarity this summer. I have been gigging with this keyboard for almost 8 years now and its still my favorite keyboard to play. It made the tour that much more enjoyable to know I'd be playing on an instrument that is as much fun to play as the VMK-188plus. I'm always using my laptop live for sounds and I need a reliable midi controller to plug into my DAW with plenty of knobs, sliders, and buttons to connect to all its parameters.
The VMK-188plus has an extensive section of each one of these controllers and allows for further customization of their internal behavior that makes programming it to work with my computer a very flexible process. Another reason I love playing the VMK-188plus is its action and the feel of its keybed. I still have not found an instrument that feels as good to play as this one. This is such an important factor for a pianist. Every piano feels different and when you find one that feels good it takes your playing to a whole other level.
The VMK-188plus does that for me. It feels good to play and lets everything flow when I'm playing. It doesn't hold me back. It allows me to do everything I want to do. Even though its not the same as a piano action, its action has a unique and genuine feel that makes me feel at home when I am playing. I really appreciate your support. I will continue to support your products in the future. I will always be on the look out for whatever comes out of your labs. My only wish is that your products were more readily available here in the U.S. I wish you all the best of luck as you continue to expand as a company. I hope to see you all here in the U.S. in the future.“
