Help to choose a MIDI keyboard for production

Postby yuky2k7 » 18 Sep 2016 12:22

I'm planning to start a basic studio in my room, so according to a friend who works as DJ and EDM producer, he recommended to buy an Alesis controller, I think they are cheaper and more practical than buying Akai or Korg controllers or synthezisers.
I just wonder if I purchase a Alesis Q25 controller, would it be fine enough to compose eurobeat, dubstep and EDM songs with FL studio? or which other Midi controller can be fine for composing and making such those remixes?

An Alesis Q25 would work just fine for that application. When working with midi sequencers, it really just comes down to personal preference in terms of what kind of hardware features you desire from a keyboard. You may want a keyboard with special controls like pitch wheels and such, and the number of keys may be important to you, but 99% of what's missing in hardware can be made up for using software, so that's not a huge deal.
