    Hey All!

    I would really appreciate your help! I desperately need to upgrade our keyboard. We've been playing with a Korg Tritan LE for the past 15 years, and although it gets the job done, at 15 years old, I'm getting nervous that it's going to crap out on us at any moment.

    The issue is, neither I nor my two keyboardists are very tech savvy, so I really need some help in figuring out what will work best for us because I have no idea what to purchase. I know we need 76 keys because we already never use the low octave on the Korg we have. I know we need weighted or gravity hammer action keys. We're playing the "modern" worship music/style (Hillsong United, Phil Wickham, Elevation, Vertical Church Band, etc.), and most of the time we're using pianos, b3/organ and synths.

    A wl friend recommended running mainstage with a Mac through midi, but again, this is beyond my tech knowledge right now. He also suggested the Nord Stage II but said it's limited in voices.

    So, any help? I'm looking for simple, with a great sound, authentic key feel, 76 keys. We're more than willing to learn how to work with a laptop and software/midi if needed. Trying to keep the $ as minimal as possible, but that goes without saying, right?

    Id be interested in what you found. Were looking as well, was looking at the Yamaha MX 61, Juno DS, or, just an electric piano with an IPAD running mainstage... Same situation as above with tech savvy, trying to stay below $1000. Am I realistic?

      My buddy has always been a fan of the Roland Fantom series. I'm pretty sure their newest keyboards are the FA line; very reliable. I know he's used his since that keyboard came out.
