comment What's the difference between two notes played on strings of different thickness?
Just to be clear, I am referring to the harmonic series of a vibrating string (fundamental plus overtones) as per Pythagoras. Here's a nice description and more from NUSW in Sydney: phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/strings.html

@Akiva. While the weight of the Studiologic NumaCompact 88-Key is appealing, it's difficult for me to determine if the USB port will also grant power. There is a 9v adapter. I recommend contacting the mfg or a retailer near you to sort out the power supply.

I just double checked the weights, these are the actual weight. Why is something with 61 keys almost 1/2 the weight of something with 88 keys is beyond the scope of this investigation--best to contact the mfg. (Honestly I have no idea).

Good question. Give me a moment and I will see it that 21 pounder is shipping weight.

Sounds like a semi-weighted MIDI controller keyboard as you plan to have it control patches already in your computer.

What kind of electrical power will you have? Hauling a lot of batteries? solar panel? tire friction generator? portable wind turbine? Are you aiming for a 12 volt DC operation?
