Playing a Grid Controller like a regular keyboard...


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

 

I'm interested in getting a grid controller (either a Push or Launchpad etc.)

I'm interested to know which of these is most "playable" as a keyboard...obviously not in the traditional sense but with a logical way to approach playing basic melodies and chords.)

 

The thing that most appeals to me is the compact size! That little controller could possibly be a nice portable rig for songwriting or basic sessions where I'm just playing simple melodies and embellishments.

 

Anyone care to shine some light on this?

Thanks in advance!!!

Tom
