This one is for our layout for the Casio XW keyboards... one for our massive layouts for the Roland U.S. JD-990 would probably be more appropriate for this lounge, but anyway... this is just a fun concept image. Hope you dig it and don't mind the plug."

Like a PPG Realizer on steroids. This is why I was a fan of the iPad from day one. It opens up synths in a way that would be virtually impossible with hardware.

Nothing beets physical knobs and sliders for that tactile experience, but if you can't have them the iPad is the next best thing and it does have some advantages.
