    Default Midi keyboards

    Im now looking at getting a midi keyboard, but the only decent manufacturers i can think of are akai and roland, and i really dont fancy paying serious amounts for something im rarely going to use, anyone know of a cheap 49/61 key keyboard with pitchbend?

    must have midi i/o so i can use it with maschine

    I've been looking for a keyboard too, basically the same situation: don't wanna spend tons of money on it. Although, as I'd be using it with Ableton, I want something with plenty of knobs to tweak parameters. With that said, would it be better to get something live the Novation SL MKII Series with all the knobs on the keyboard, or a super basic keyboard and then another device like the BCR3000 to control parameters?
