Please can any of you advise me as to the best midi/usb controller for software instruments, - preferably with a keyboard - I use Logic. I like the look of the Korg Microkontrol.....anybody use this? Is it easy to set up templates for other plugins like the Sony Oxford EQ and MD3 mastering running on the Powercore?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
korg is coming out with the Kontrol 49 (pads. knobs. sliders, 49keys..no aftertouch)...Novation Remote 49 or 61: aftertouch, 49 or 61 keys knobs, sliders, buttons, touchpad, x-y joystick (mod and pitch but assignable).
Not a cheap solution, but the Kurzweil 2600s (2500s also) have a huge assortment of available controllers - sliders, buttons, and 2 ribbon controllers, including the short ribbon that's perfect for adding hand-played real-time live vibrato. You can create setups to match any VSTi or library imaginable.
------- It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...
