    Default What Midi Controller Should I Rock?

    I was looking to invest into some midi controller although I have a DJM 800 and might map it... But I was thinking of something with pads, knobs and faders for under 200$

    I ran across an Akai MPD24 for ($170) and the Korg Nano Series Bundle for ($160) But I am open up to any suggestions such as a device like a VCI 100 or something better then the 2 I pointed out but around the $200 mark

    thanks I appreciate it

    apc20 is more than 200 USD and only has faders .. no knobs.

    You could try and dig up an Evolution UC33e and use a pad controller with it
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    I thought the apc 20 was going to come in at 200 USD.... might be wrong though

    I'll beat tekki to the punch, but, BCR 2000 (can be picked up really cheap, got mine for free on DJTT some time back) along with your favorite pad controller, preferably something with faders, since you already have 999 knobs with the bcr 2000.

    I was under the impression he just used cdj's. Might be wrong though.
