    How is everyone doing? I would like to know what is the best midi controller to run Record and Reason with. I don't like that oxygen thing so any suggestions? I know how to use the program and I am loving it right now. Thanks in advance.

    there is no set best. A lot of people like the Novation boards but they are pricey same with the CME stuff. A lot of people are satisfied with the Oxygens or the Axioms. A better question would be what are the most important things that you need in your controller?

    as an owner of novation sl zero (retired), axiom pro, keystation pro 88, oxygen 8 v2 and korg nano kontrol...

    i think the best way to go is the korg nano kontrol for the mixer in reason and any keyboard controller with knobs/sliders...

    nano kontrol does exactly what they were designed to do...

    for $60 it is a steal...

    especially with a mobile setup...

    just curious...

    if you lock the novation to the mixer in Reason what does it do more than korg nano control?

    next question...

    what does automap give you over a controller with Reason Personality file?

    i do not believe i wrote anywhere that one was better than the other. if i did "please" point it out...

    what i am saying is that a korg nano controller and a midi keyboard controller with knobs/sliders will function just as well as automap and hypercontrol (axiom pro)...

    if we were bragging about what gear one uses/owns then using/owning novation products will sound "more" impressive than korg nano kontrol and a midi controller...

    but when you talk about functionality they are about the same.

    to sum everything up...

    for $200 you can get a korg nano kontroller and a midi keyboard controller that will perform just as well as novation and/or axiom pro...

    plus, you will be saving about $250 to $300...

    the korg nano kontrol is geared more towards the mixer than synth...

    you could use it with synths...

    i use the nano kontrol with a m-audio oxygen v2 with R+R...

    i have the nano kontrol locked to the mixer and use the knob/sliders on the oxygen v2 to programming the synths...

    I recently got a Novation 25SL ReMote... I would definitely recommend it.#

    If your after something cheaper, I recently had an Edirol PCR-M1 which was a good little controller.
    Would you like to be modified?
