Recommendations for a 25key usb midi/keyboard/pads thingy

Recommended Posts

I think i need a 25 key (small) to go with my new audio interface and DAW software so i can expand upon just recording bass and drum loops. Something idiot proof, compact and with pads as well as a keyboard (i think). Budget is probably under £80 unless theres a spectacular reason to spend more. i cant' play the piano so key size is probably not a worry as it'll all be a bit weird for me anyway :-)

Anyone with any recommendations, pointers or ones to avoid?

There's loads to choose from and I've only ever had ones by M-Audio which I've found to be pretty reliable. If I could choose again though I'd probably try and get one with full sized keys.

The Akai mini play also has onboard sounds as well, although the reviews say they aint great

I have one of these: M-Audio Oxygen 25 V4 MK4. It was £69 + postage so in your budget. It can exceed my skills with midi stuff so good enough for me.

That's on my list too :-)  There seems to be quite a few secondhand ones of those floating about.....

Sorted! I hit the button on a Native Instruments M32 keyboard. So no pads, more keys and a bit over budget but it's my birthday in a couple of weeks 🎂😉 Seems to have a good software package and more importantly for me a chord cheat mode! The geeks seem to quite like it on YouTube so I'll give it a go. Thanks for the advice guys
