M audio keystation 49

The keystation 49 looks ok, should do the job alright mate and a half decent price at that, you could probably look around for something cheaper, all you need is something to control/play the pc music software. I use the M-Audio Axiom USB midi controller a tad expensive but i had the spare cash at the time. Most midi controllers or keyboards are powered by your pc through USB leads these days, the same sort of USB cables/leads that power a printer, not all midi keyboard/controllers come supplied with a lead of any sort. One thing i would recommend is a good soundcard like the creative X-Fi extreme music (that's the soundcard i use by choice) reason is because of latency/lag issues, like for example ..when you hit the keys on the midi device you want to hear the sound straight away but with some soundcards there can be a delay, the X-Fi uses ASIO drivers, i set the ASIO buffer latency to 2 ms in the software system settings (music creation software like fruity loops 7), it all sounds complicated but realy it is not.

Kinda hot if you ask me, M-audio make a wide range of cool stuff.

@ warcloud

seems like its got its own FPC drum pad on there too. Top right corner.

I own a M-audio Trigger finger myself, but its on ebay. Now that I own a Korg Pad Kontrol.

I pretty much agree with the rest of what warcloud suggests too. :rocky:

Depends what you want to use music production programs for. Different music production programs cater for different needs and therefore have different features. For example, Reason has a drum machine where you can program drum beats on the fly, whereas most other programs don't have drum machines as part of the package. Likewise, some [re: very few] have built in samplers and some don't (samplers as a separate item are usually VERY expensive). If I was choosing, I would go for either the latest version of Propellerhead Reason or the latest version of Cakewalk Sonar - both of which are industry standard and widely used in the industry. Then again, there's always Cubase....

I know where you can get Ph Reason 4 with Sonic Reality Vintage Drums refill bundle for £229.00 :whistle:

Seems Cakewalk Sonar 7 Producer Edition is retailing for around £329.00 too (£369.00 with the Edirol Sonar external audio interface bundle)

Last time I checked, Squad_E was using FL Studio 7. Come to think of it so am I ATM, but I want to move on up to Reason or Sonar, which I'll probably do after I take my music production course this year. Just to show off, I'll turn up for my course with show up with a few of my latest full length audio compositions (one of which is based of the Dog Soldiers movie) :whistle:

£ or $

Send me a PM if you like?

<_<

That question mark should read pound sign. It seems Firefox doesn't like any symbols like that or any accented letters etc. I'll chop you a PM now.

There's a smallish top of the range Trigger Finger type device seen in action in this vid. You can see it first from about 00:30 onwards, but then you see it best between 2:11-2:21 - it's the device that the producer is 'hitting' with his fingers/hand. I want to get one like in that vid for my setup. (be warned of 'graphic' scenes of a guy spewing blood from his mouth, and other scenes of 'mild peril' :P )
