Looking for a good, yet affordable midi keyboard/controller with touch sensitive keys and pitch bend...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been producing music on and off for a couple of years or so now. But never had a midi keyboard and think it's time I get one. Getting sick of programming everything in! I am on quite a tight budget so I can only spend about £30 tops here.

It's really important that what I get has touch sensitive keys and a pitch bend wheel so that I can put feeling into what I play. Also, one that connects through usb would be just fine. I'm only using it on my desktop pc. If any of you guys have some good suggestions then please do share! Thanks smile.gif

those are some pretty basic requirements. a lot of midi controller/keyboards will give you that. how many keys do you need? are you looking for a compact solution? check out some of m-audio's products. they've been out for a long time and make affordable, reliable keyboards.

Well you'd be suprised how hard it is to find something with pitch bend and modulation wheels when you're only spending around £30! I couldn't find anything that did. I had my eye on a few secondhand ones on ebay. But due to impatience I ended up ordering a new Korg Nanokey2 as it has the functions I want. Though they are in the form of buttons rather than wheels, so might not control as well. I watched a few videos of people using it and it looked about good enough. Looking forward to getting it soon. Thanks for the reply anyway smile.gif
