We did a double-take when we saw these roll-up keyboards at a trade show: could they possibly work?
Well, now we've tested one and the answer has to be: just about… but not very well. There are three version available and we tested the flagship 61-note version.
Unfortunately, its limitations are exposed the minute you turn it on. We can deal with the poor built-in sounds – it's the massively insensitive keyboard that we can't handle.
Even forming chords properly was difficult. We really wanted the K-61 to be good. However, although it's innovative and portable, it's practically unplayable.
It's a roll up keyboard.
Key sensitivity is truly awful. Sound is poor.
A nice idea, but the execution is a long way off.
