MIDI Keyboard

Eyy,

Been doing this a while now and want to get myself a MIDI Keyboard to increase my workflow.

The Akai Mini looks like a great option as it has the pad controllers but I feel like I'll regret not getting a full-sized keyboard as I progress as a keyboardist.

Can anyone vouch for the Akai Mini or recommend a good, affordable MIDI keyboard to use with Logic Pro X?

@EffBoogie how do you like Logic Pro X? I own a Mac and I'm gonna start w/GarageBand before considering Logic.

I used to use Reason back in the day and found it too complex when I was young so I started using Logic a few months ago and found it really easy to get to grips with.

For the timebeing it's great. Simple, straightforward and suits what I make

@EffBoogie I have the Akai MPK mini and I love it! I had the same thought when I was thinking what midi to get. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. I chose the mini because of limited space and easy transportation, and also you can move up and down octaves with the click of a button. Nothing wrong with a keystation or anything like that tho, its all preference

@216 Sound how do you like the MPK mini as there have been complaints about the pads, etc. and I ask 'cause I already have a P-105 for serious playing as time goes by but just to get started I'm looking at the MPK.

Pads feel cheap and record double notes easily. Not really a big deal using a daw though as you can just click your drums in. I would not recomend it for live playing. Other than that I love it.
