Currently I’m looking for a MIDI-Controller. I have narrowed it down to Korg Taktile 49 and maybe the new Akai MPK249. I’ve heard the keybed of the Akai is still too “stiff” and you have to spend a lot of force to bring the keys down. But beside that I’ve also know from reviews that otherwise the mpk is an excellent controller.
With the korg taktile you can use the pads (also 16 as the akai) to easily enter chords and to my mind that’s a very interesting function especially for composing.
At the moment I’m working with my Korg microArranger. Although the keybed is very good (very “light” to push the keys down - I like this) it isn’t a midi controller.
Anyone who have tested one of the above-mentioned controllers and can give an advice? Also in respect of the different keybeds and in relation to the simplicity of the particular setup in Reaper.
Thanks in advance!
