I've been using the m audio 61es controller and it has recently crapped out on me. I've tried fixing but to no avail. Any suggestions on midi controllers.

I have looked at a few under 300 by m audio and Novation that come with drum pads on it.

I say this because I may have been too rough with the keys when making drum beats which could be why a key went out.
So you want a midi controller with keys and drum pads under $300?
You want weighted keys or it doesn't matter or they have to be unweighted?
How many keys do you want?

Anyway, this year's namm's alesis' new stuff may be worth a look.
Name's Luca.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.
