Which midi controller should I buy?
Hi there! I'm new to the forums and have a question to ask you all. I am currently looking to buy a midi controller to go with my Novation Launchpad S. I have found 2 Possibilities... I need your opinions and advice on which to buy. The two controllers are the Novation Launchkey mini, and the Korg Nanokontrol2.. I figure the launchkey mini is a better choice as it has a keyboard, but the nanokontrol2 has more knobs and faders/controls. Which one should I buy? Let me know . This is my portable setup to bring with me on trips and such without packing a ton.

It depends on what you want to do with it.
I will be using it as an effect controller and for keys if I get the launch key...

Then it still depends on wether you'd rather have an effects controller or a keyboard. I think the launch key's keys are pretty small and there are lots of other simmilar keyboards out there. Take a look at those.

I am a producer for multiple genres and find that Maschine has no shortcomings. The abundance of effects and tools it offers makes it he most valuable piece of equipment in my arsenal. I would recommend this as a serious buy for any serious producer.
