And ...  If you are looking for a really high-quality children's musical learning instrument ...
With a LACHNIT  MK your talented children certainly do not "ruin" their fingers.

As a music student up to the “middle university level”, you can at least work off your exercise workload at home (with headphones). Later, however, you will need to take training sessions on a high leveled professional acoustic piano. We still bow our head to the "big three".

MK22 Studio and MK22:

Patented FLK Light Sensor Technology
Dynamics knob and velocity curve edit knobs.

Over 32000 different levels of note on velocity are linearized to internal 256 MIDI values, followed by the user adjustable dynamics knob and velocity curve knobs.
For Hi Res linearized to minimum 4096 CC#88 values.

Unlike normal MIDI keyboard controllers implement velocity curves by shifting MIDI values and/or compressing the curve and consequently minimize the MIDI dynamic range. the full MIDI range of 0 - 127 is always available over the full range of the velocity curve knob.

Trigger point fine tuned to about 2/3 of key travel.
Each key is adjusted manually on each keyboard.

Pitch and modulation wheels

"Piano Mode" on/off possible to enable very slow key movements that don't produce a sound like on a grand piano.

"Waterfall Mode" on/off possible. Adjustable MIDI velocity.

Dynamic key release velocity.

3 digit 7 segment display

4 banks of 4 presets to store your custom parameter settings permanently (selectable by MIDI Program Change commands).
