more Mininova/Ultranova questions
I think i'm sold on the Nord Stage 2 because of the insane pianos and samples, and the great feeling keys. I think because that is such a huge purchase, I will have to cut back (again) on what I can spend on a dedicated synthesizer, and I think the Novation Mininova would do the trick to go along with my slim phatty. Unfortunately my experience with mini-keys have been awful (i.e. I have an Akai mpkMINI and I hate it) so are the keys good, or should I invest in an Ultranova for full sized keys? (By the way i'm ok with looking at the screen for parameters, so getting it all on the keyboard isn't an issue.)
Just as a bit of insight, the stage would see a lot of studio and mild gigging time. The Mininova is mostly for studio work and for leads and mild pads and gritty sounds, all of which my moog are not very good at.
