Buying a mini usb keyboard

    Don't worry about it - in order to ensure I get it in time, I've just ordered the Novation Launchkey Mini. Looking forward to getting my hands on it now!

    Have fun with it!
    I have the Akai MPK mini myself. Very light and slim. Downside is only 8 mpc pads (2 banks) and no mod wheel or pitch bend. Keys nice and responsive though.

    I still have this guy as well. Cheap and cheerful. Only major issue is control knobs don't react in the DAW until the physical knob is turned to around 10%

    I like my launch key mini. It is so compact. I'm sure the akai mini is equally good. Nice to have the additional big pads.

    It comes with the Analog Lab software package, which is bloody brilliant, and its the price as the Akai, has encoders rather than pots - and above all I really like the wood trim ;)

    Can't recommend the M-Audio Oxygen enough. I've had two of them now which sounds like a bad advertisement if you're wondering what happened to the first one. It took 6 years of dog's abuse before I needed a new one, which will now be subjected to the same dog's abuse :)

    i use the akai lpk25 myself. it's good enough that i'd consider getting any of their other keyboards.
    i think native instruments are getting into keyboards now.

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but it's the only one I could find that mentions the Novation launchkey

    Does anyone know why there are 2 versions of the Launchkey 25 MK2?
    One with Modulation wheel and one without!
