Recommend a mini keyboard controller for live

Post by GreatExpectations » Wed Jun 29, 2016 2:42 am

I'm heading off on vacation and need a small controller that will fit in my backpack. My push 2 is a bit too big. What's out in the market that you would recommend?

I have a novation 49 key and like it a lot. I'm sure their launchkey 25 would be pretty great.

KMI Qunexus. Tough little bugger and still very responsive once you tweak the settings to your style of playing.

Launchkey mini.

Or if you have all the money in the world get an OP-1 which also has an Ableton control mode.

If you want small but stylish, try a CME Xkey. There's also a wireless (Bluetooth) version.
