I must need a new one.. I have a glitch in mine.. the scroll lock comes on and I get locked out of Piano World.. maybe that's a sign or something.

If you are going to get a new keyboard don't get a cheap one with unweighted keys. Buy something that has weighted keys that gives you the feel of a real typewriter.

I would also suggest to use a good old abacus instead of this new-fashioned "PC" (or so) stuff.

Built like a tank, weighted keys, hammer feedback, got midi out, tone ball (very new), note off and 10 polyphone. Of course the polyphone is virtually adjustable. All in a very flat portable design.

And how about that genuine typewriter sound: click, click, clack, clack, thunk, click, click, ding, thunk-ziiiip, click, click . . .

And yes, those of us who can identify all those sounds are showing our age!

Just dig in, with all ten fingers, regardless of what words come out.
It will look awful, but you will have created something totally unique ha

That keyboard works. Seriously. It can work with Pianoteq, Kontakt and so on as well as a MIDI keyboard. Look at this video

Haha, great. I used to do it school as well :-) great fun!
I think with this IBM keyboard (really old, sounds like a typemachine!) you'll get complaints with the thumping, teehee :-)
