I have the keystation 61 that I use as a backup controller, it has a springy action which is crap for piano stuff, but for general use it's a pretty nice unit. You really do want semi-weighted keys for most stuff, especially if it's non-weighted vs. semi-weighted.

Ok cool.
Is there an alternative with semi-weighted keys within a similar price range?

you can probably get a nicer 49 key model, or a really basic 88 hey model, as for brand I'm not sure, M-Audio has a pretty good corner on the low end MIDI controller market from what I've seen.

Do you think 49 keys would be enough to learn some more piano and sequence some stuff?
We have the m-audio 49 key one in college and they aren't bad, but again, the keys aren't semi weighted.

if you really want to learn piano I would suggest getting an 88 key hammer weighted keyboard. semi-weighted keyboards fell nothing like a piano.

Yeah I would like to eventually, I can't afford that right now though. But I think the 61 key will be fine for now though to be honest.
