M-Audio Keyrig 49 VS MPK mini

Post by Blackeel » Fri Feb 18, 2011 12:27 pm

Hi everybody !

I just got an APC40 and I need some keys to complete my setup.

I dont want spend a lot of money, I want to touch real key instead of the mouse or PC keyboard.

Should I buy an MPK mini 25 keys with some knobs (already on APC), arpegiator, pads...
Or It would be better to take an M-Audio keyrig 49? (I dont care about the keyrig software only motivated by cheap 49 keys in this option)

Im stuck between the 2 products (or even an other option would be LPK 25)

I precise that I never played piano in my life (or just for fun) Im not a musician Im from DJ-ing and I will produce Tech house.

Thanks you for your advices!

i have keyrig 25 and mpk mini. mini has better kays, definitely. the pads are awesome, love them. at the moment there is no native support from live for knobs (?) cause the product is too new. akai is recomended, fantastic product.
