Midi controller

What kinds of things do you want to do with it? What DAW do you have? How much money can you spend?

You can get anything from a launchkey mini for around $100 to an ableton push for like $700 (if you want the ultimate ableton experience) to an akai mpc for $200-$1600 that comes with more or less it's own dedicated DAW to basically a grand piano replacement keyboard for a few thousand dollars.

And then there's MPE stuff like the Roli Seaboard if you want something different.

I use fl to make the beat, then i export it to protools to work it.
I used to have a midi keyboard, but I don't know why on my new PC it doesn't work, the computer don't recognize it.
I was looking for a keyboard with a pad or a pad only

Try going to your manufacturer's website and see if you need a driver update. If that doesn't work, you could try out the AKAI Fire. It's made with FL Studio in mind, so that gives it a real leg up over other midi controllers for using it with FL Studio.

Thanks White_Noise JPI !
Yes , I tried searching the driver but I couldn't make it work. It's an old Casio keyboard, and it's connected via a midi cable. First I thought it might be the cable , but in my older PC it works .

Could be you need a newer midi interface. I hear the best stuff about iConnectivity's mio range of interfaces. All the live sound guys I know swear by them.

It would help if you provided a budget, and a description of what you want to use it for.


(Personally I'd be looking at Roland rather than M-Audio, but it depends on your budget).
