    I was wondering if anyone here has used the midiman radium midi controller. are the keys velocity sensitive? and are there any problems with them.

    Hey dude,
    I have the Oxygen and can tell you that It doesn't feel particularly sturdy. One of my keys has become a little loose as well which is a little bit of a mystery to me!! (wife seems nervous lately!) I like the fact that the Radium has both rotary pots and faders for controling
    parameters, more options that way. It's also handy because it offers both USB and MIDI cable connections, and, if you plug it in via USB, you can also use the USB as a power supply for the device. More options. The Radium's keys are also velocity sensitive. I don't think that any controllers in the M-Audio line are too bad. Check out this link for additional info. on the Radium...

    You should also check out the Novation ReMOTE 25 USB MIDI Controller at....
    This is a little pricier but looks really cool
    P.S. What do you do neighbour??

    It does send velocity. They're not the best put together things but they (at least the Oxygen) are just about the smallest full sized key controllers out there.

    I'll second Michael on the Remote 25...I think its the ultimate in small controller keyboards.

    thanks guys,
    I have a small studio and have recently bought some software synths. all i have at the moment for a controller is a little yamaha toy keytar that amazingly has a midi out. I imagine that anything is better than it so the radium looks like a good choice for now.
    Thanks again
