i'm lookin to get a MIDI controller, to learn to play and record with. i'm going for cheap here, but something that's reliable. i'll prob start out using it to add a little something to my music, and then eventually learn to actually play. m-audio is a well known brand, i dont know if they are any good though. i was thinkin about getting the 61-key w/ knobs and sliders instead of the semi-weighted key model w/ any knobs sliders. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Oxygen61/ i was thinkin for what i want to do, having sliders and knobs will be good for real time control? are there any other controllers i should take a look at?
