Let's talk MIDI pad controllers
Posted 10 May 2010 - 09:05 PM
Can anyone recommend some MIDI controllers to look into? My two mains concerns (which is pretty universal for everyone) are features and price. Ultimately I'd be using the controller for production as well as mixing/DJing later down the line.

they're both really small two, and the nanopad has the same pads as the padkontrol, with x/y and note repeat
check out turntablelab.com they got em

But if you need something more solid and if you have a bit more money sure go for the M-Audio up there... Or the MPD32... You know, you can still work extras to pay this... It wouldn't much anyway, so...

For DJing/Production, esp with Ableton, an MPD with a few faders and a little keyboard like a Korg Nano should cover all your bases (most applications allow for a few controllers to be connected. If you think keys will be important get an MPK.
Axiom pads are nice but the rotaries are shit/not suitable for DJing or pretty much anything. Can't speak on the faders but if you have enough to spend on an axiom with faders (these are the bigger models), spend the money on something else.
If pads are important get more than 8 (as in the axiom) you will need them eventually, esp if you have no keys. I'm rocking an Axiom 25, but starting to use my MPC for pads (4 x 16). Thinking of selling both for an MPK61, although i like having a drum machine...and fear change

axiom49 is cool, sold mine though cause the 8 pads is kinda restricting, keys is cool, but if ur looking for a pad controller, id pass.
hated the nanocontrol returned it straight away, terrible.
love my mpd32, closests to my mpc2000xl.

like someone said above, i would suggest getting the akai they are a bit more sturdy i think. i have an LPK and i really like it, for a small portable with keys.
WHOA!!! why is that site selling the akai LPK and LPD for 149?! you can get them for like $69 almost ANYWHERE else. oh wait that's NZ dollars... what's the conversion? *looks it up* 149 NZ is about 98 US. i'm not sure if places like zzounds or musicians friend charge a whole lot for international shipping, but its worth checking out, you may still be able to get them cheaper.

Checked both those sites out and they don't do international shipping though. Thinking I might save up for something better anyway
