A standard on/off organ-style keyboard controller, yes. But the addition of aftertouch along with all the mod wheels/pads/pedals adds an enviable number of controls.

I wish manufacturers had embraced that wonderful idea. TH > Given the vast sonic possibilities of the synth today, > a keyboard seems the least expressive controller.
