    49 or 61 keys for learning piano + producing?

    For producing, you don't really need more than 49 IMO. (many people get by with 25 and the octave buttons, but that's too small if you're planning on playing both hands simultaneously)

    For learning piano properly, 61 is the bare minimum and even that will be frustrating as your piano skills grow.

    S61 is pricey, but if you use all of NI's stuff, may be worthwhile.
