cheapest portable midi controller with these features???


Recommended Posts

I dunno a website that lists tons of controllers, and the one w/ the features i want for cheap might not be on eBay currently, I'll buy used.

-37 or 49 keys, not 25.

-split board if can.

-using with a portable laptop, so rechargable battery prefered or might need spare laptop battery for 3 hour session?

-mod and pitch wheel and at least 5 assignable prefer sliders to knobs

-usb or midi out? I dunno which soundcard/interface i'm getting. something cheap that just makes DAW & VST synths and FX not glitch on the cheapest used laptop that can do that.

If you're using it with a laptop, your software can probably handle your splits and USB can provide power, so yeah, an extra battery there is probably the way to go. So that reduces your requirements to mod/pitch wheel and 5 assignable sliders. Alesis QX49 is probably cheapest.

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our now not-so-new new video at https://youtu.be/3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out! And hopefully I'll have something new here this year. ;-)
