I'd like a controlle...

Re: Name every synth/controller with mini-keys and MIDI you know

what's your price range? If moneys not a problem here's a few I'd choose. -Akai MPK49 "compact 49 key" your best option IMO~ Its average $399 USD. http://www.planetdj.com/images/mpk49.jpg ~or Novation ReMOTE SL37 ~ average between $299 - 399 USD. http://www.laymansreviews.com/assets/lr_52-SL37_Ltd.j...
