Default OT: MIDI controller recommendations?

i am looking for a midi controller to use with reason i can use my roland xp-60 to hit the key notes but am after more.

the oxygen 8 looks to do the trick but there is no action on the keys (at least in my opinion). it feels like pushing plastic Fisher Price keys to me. is there one out there that has a bit of weight on the keys? one that has more of a keyboard / piano feel?

thanks,
ken;

i have the midiman radium61. 8 assignable knobs and 8 assignable sliders. 61 keys... obviously. it works great and you can bargain for one at guitar center for around 200. action-wise, you aren't going to find anything weighted for less than like... 3 times the price. sucks, i know. i also wish they would make them out of metal and not plastic. durability is a plus for me. anyway.... yep.

I'm not sure what you're looking for. The XP-60 should allow you to do a lot more than just "hit the key notes". It has assignable sliders, footpedals, etc. What do you want it to do and how much will you spend?
