I think I could use one small midi controller to do some pads or bass thru a module and let the dig piano out of the midi and cable mess.
Dont need much more than 2 octaves, no knobs, no wheels,no weighted keys or hammer action, no anything lol! just the (around 24)keys with velocity sensitiveness.
ANy model comes to mind?

Of course, this is just what is current at most of the music stores. If you are looking for really really ultra cheap and simple - ebay!!!



COOL!, THANKS TERROR!
Helpful as usual! Ill be checking on these, I was already looking on e bay, but there were so many of these things!
Anyway, seems like my phantasy of a 25 keys with no knobs or wheels controller is not posible...

The last two are 25 keys!!! :D

Yes they are! lol, but even having less keys, they are more expensive than he other, because of all the knobs and wheels and buttons,..
What I ment was something like the first one (plain, just the keys) but only 25 so is ultra cheap & easy to move.
Anyway those ones are good enoughs for me, dont care about the "feeling" or any other crap :D, i mean, cmon is not like youre studying your piano lessons on the 25 keys midi controller! hehe

Well, this should get a good laugh from a few people but...

http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=164714

I actually use that with Cubase instead of using something like the Mackie Bigknob and some of the other junk on the market. I paid $30 (us), have four modes of operation and yes, I can program it for drums and whatever else. It lights up on three of four modes so I always know what mode I'm in.

...and then after a big day of playing with recordings - I can use it with World of Warcraft!!!

(only fourteen keys too - hahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
