I’m seeking advice for a keyboard controller to be used with Cubase 7.
I’ve been looking at the AKAI MPK 61 and the Novation Impulse 61 and just can’t make my mind up nor can I go and try them out in a shop because of where I live.
The problems I’m having in deciding which key board is because the AKAI MPK look like it has amazing build quality but the drum pads look ridiculously unusable (unless you mod the pads or swap them for the MPC fat pads) and there is no Auto Map.
The Novation Impulse looks like its a plastic toy, but has Auto map and apparently the drum pads are a lot more sensitive than the AKAI. I guess the question is, how good is Auto Map with Cubase 7?
I use BFD 2 so would love to easily assign the drum pads to kit pieces in BFD2
I would also love to know which actual keyboard feels better to play. I’m thinking about buying Omnisphere as it looks like a beast of a synth and a hell of a lot of fun to write Music with so a keyboard that works with that would also be a bonus for me.
Has anybody bought either of these keyboards and used them with Cubase 7? What do you think I should go for?
Thanks for your time
