Can you recommend a Midi controller?

Post by RamonLP4 » Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:44 am

I just got my M32 and and pretty excited about it. Unfortunately, I'm a total noob when it comes to Midi. Can you folks recommend a Midi Controller? Ideally, I'd like something simple with full sized keys and at most a pitch bend wheel and in the less than $200 price range. At the moment I am considering an M-Audio Keystation 61 II (as it has a 5-pin MIDI output) but I'm not sure if that particular model has any incompatibility issues with the M-32. What would you folks recommend?

Much appreciated

I found the Roland A-300 Pro to work really fine, it has a very good keybed and includes aftertouch as well as advanced MIDI parameters

I use the X-key 37 - full size keys, nice feel, very light and compact if gigging.
