I have a Nektar P6 and love it. Nektar keyboards are well made and customer support is great. Definitely worth checking out.

I'm not familiar with the Edirol PCR 800, so no help there, sorry.

Enjoy.

I've got an LX61 and can recommend it. Well built; decent keys, pads, faders, switches, etc; great value for money; integrates well with Reaper (and other DAWs).

But if you have a use for aftertouch, you're going to find it lacking.

1. Do you like semi weighted or fully weighted keys?
2. What do you use your keyboard for, playing piano or just sequencing midi?
3. Are you looking for controls integrated with Reaper?

1. im ok with both, what i can't handle are comepletely non weighted keys played on a non weighted keyboard some years ago and i didn't like it

2. i wanna use it to compose music so mainly midi recording

3. if possible yes since it probably would save me a lot of trouble...

i guess ill go for the nektar seems like a solid choice
