Bargain of the day

Straight from DV - gots me one of these bad boys coming. I've currently got a mahoosive 49-key keyboard that's too big for gigging with. For £50, this is, I'm sure a worthy experiment.

Yeah, although it's second hand and had a slight fluid spill on it but I've had my PCR-50 apart before and can service it, so absolute bargain.

IMO, M-Audio is great entry-level stuff for the hobbyist/tinkerer.

I'll never use it live again. Been there, done that... :twisted:

another +1

you mostly don't really save money buying cheap stuff like m-audio or behringer, etc.

mainly you end up buying twice and waisting money.

i had very bad experience with m-audio myself, apart from that i personally hate the feel of the keys, i prefer korg or CME.

blablabla.....

IMHO, for many m-audio Products, there are better alternatives available, but it is not true that all things from m-audio are totally shit for everybody.

My trusty and old Oxygen8 always served me well, and is perfect for what it is:

A not too expensive small controller Keyboard. It works well, it is perfect for controlling Racks, and many well known Artists have used it.

The OP even mentioned the low price....

In all threads about Gear, there are the types of Posts, where people recommend the best and most expensive Gear, just to show how "professional" they are...

The OP has got another Keyboard, so perhaps he wants something cheap to lug around, but wait, we can end most Gear-Topics right here:

I want an interface and don t have much money:
-Get RME or Motu

Laptop:
-Macbook Pro or Newest IBM T61p

Monitor Speakers:
-Genelec or ADAM

...and because i know all these brands, i m a much more prof. producer...

i know how that feels :wink:

you are not wrong at all, saying that, my general and yupp very personal experience is that buying cheap is buying twice, and that not just counts for music gear!
