Oxygen61 vs Korg microKey vs Behringer UMX610
I was searchin for a suitable midi keyboard for my needs and i've run down to these three:
- M-audio Oxygen 61
- Korg microKey
- Behringer U-Control UMX610
The main reason for choosing the above is my budget (don't wanna spend more than 200EU). Im also a begginer with DAW softwares and all that, so I don't think something with many pads, knobs and other fancy thingies will be much different.
From what I read about these products, my main concerns are:
oxygen61 has only USB 1.1 port which is kind of bad (or not?) and microKey doen't have any knob and sliders, though the quality of the keyboard is perfect (im not so sure about these mini-keys, 'cause i'm used to full-sized classic piano keys). UMX610 looks nice, yet again behringer products are questionable.
I will use the keyboard mainly for "producing" electronic kind of music, so I guess velocity sensitive keys won't be such a big deal over touch.
I also don't care about mobility of the keyboard, since I will mostly have it near my desktop.
Any piece of advice from pros (or not!) would be much appreciated! Which one should I prefer? Are there any other good options? (Alesis QX61 was on my list too, but many reviews describe it as faulty)
