Hey, don't really know where this goes but fvck it, I'm looking for a cheap USB Midi controller just to program EZ Drummer in Reaper and maybe some sampley, synthy stuff later down the road. Should I be looking at a keyboard or a sorta pad trigger thing? I've had a look at the Korg Nano series and they look kinda cool but I'm open to any suggestions, thanks in advance.
There is a mpd mini, the older one has 26 keys and 6 pads. Should be enough for your needs for now. They cost around $30-$50 and you can just get a larger keyboard if you decide to do more serious keyboard work with it.
