I had been gazing at the Saitek Eclipse II Backlit Keyboard with some longing, but now there's another product that is giving it some serious competition in the Ritchie saliva production department: Prodikeys.

I have long lamented that I have no space to set up my old Roland keyboard, but this could certainly sate some of my plinking cravings. The Prodikey is a keyboard plus a velocity sensitive mini-piano keyboard (about the same size of keys as my old Yamaha) on the bottom of the keyboard.

I'm a little worried as to whether it would work with my rather old Sound Blaster Live, but it does claim to work with them.

It's not available at Future Shop or Best Buy around here, but it can be ordered from good old ThinkGeek, who have been pretty excellent (and fast!) with their orders.

Leave me to my furious pondering...

Talk to Armando about the Saitek as that’s his main keyboard these days. I’m not so keen on the feel of it myself, but then I don’t really have a need for a backlit keyboard.

I’m looking forward to your rendition of “Chopsticks".

I have a sinking feeling that I’m going to give up some good keyboarding feeling in order to get other cool features I want somehow. Wish I could get a hold of one to try it out.

*laugh* Screw Chopsticks, I can do Greensleeves, bro! I can do part of Für Elise, albeit haltingly, as well as just play creepy low piano sounds.
