    Hey everyone!
    Im new to midi but i have a motif for 5 years.
    I study abroad so im away from my motif.
    After making my research ive concluded that its one of the two.
    I wanted something cheap with controlers and a prety good quality.

    If you have experience with both your input is very valuable to me.

    Cons, Pros? Anyone any taste of them?

    I mainly think to go for Impact due to squared keys and nice feel as im used to hammered action. Also better value for money.
    Launchkey is is more expensive mainly due to the fact that it has more software coming with it. How usefull or important is that?

    I haven't played either one, but if it were me doing the shopping I might be leaning more toward the Novation (I have a Novation Launchpad controller and it seems pretty solidly built). On the other hand, I like that the Nektar comes in an 88-key model.

    I agree that Amazon's reviews are usually pretty reliable and unbiased, although in general online reviews are less useful if there are only a couple of people reviewing a given item-- so in this case it's hard to say about the Nektar because there aren't enough reviews to go on.
