Midi Controller Help

Post by phesago » Sun May 21, 2017 1:17 am

Hey guys looking for a midi controller, hoping to have these specs

*Midi i/o
*pressure sensitive pads that can send cc's. Would love if was able to send more cc1 and able to send on different channels
*Not dependent software
* KNobs/sliders would be nice but not necessary

Sorry to ask but im tired of reading manuals just to be disappointed in my findings.

IM also open to hearing about MPC's if the pads can send cc's via pads and the cc control is touch/pressure sensitive

I really like my Akai MPK25. There are bigger keyboard versions if you need more octaves also.. it does all that + hardware arpeggiator (transmits notes!)

It has tons of knobs for CC assignable stuff.. has usb if you do want to connect it to a computer.. has physical midi in / out.. everything is programmable inside the device. slaves to midi clock so the arp internally will drive whatever you want..
