In Search Of: A small Midi keyboard
I’ve missed playing around with music sequencing software, so I’m looking to get a Midi keyboard with a small desktop-sized footprint. The M-Audio Oxygen8 would appear to be the perfect product, but it’s only a Midi controller and lacks an on-board synthesizer. I know I can play sounds through my Mac with software like SimpleSynth, but I’d also like to be able to sit with a keyboard on my couch (i.e. away from the computer, where I spend most of my day) and play through and practice my Chorus parts. A cheap little 25-key synthesizer would be great, but it would have to have Midi ports on the back. So far, I’m striking out on my web and eBay searches.
