Since our studio introduction in January, there have been some upgrades.
The main one has been the replacement of the Nektar keyboard controller with what is effectively a stage piano. This doubles as a portable keyboard and a keyboard controller. The X-Touch One duplicated the controls for Logic Pro that were on the Nektar keyboard anyway, and Nektar have not updated their drivers for the M1 Mac since I upgraded that from the old Intel Mac I had.
The modular amplifier has been replaced by a standard amplifier (an old Sony), I've added more keyboard and MIDI instruments.
