View Full Version : [ubuntu] Midi Keyboard controler advice

January 16th, 2010, 05:51 PM
Hi, I am new to both Linux and DAW (barely anything on Linux and DAWs) and I am looking to buy a Keyboard to control DAW/VSTs, but I am not sure what I should buy.

What I wanted is the most interaction possible with the DAW/VST with the less kb/mouse possible, and being a beginner if possible the more possible hassle (configuration) free.

It seems that Novation have somethings (SL MK2, Nocturn), but it is right on the upper limit of my price range, M-Audio Axiom Pro it is the same.

So anyone can give me other options/advices, preferably cheaper (I would be able to buy other things that way)?

Or at least tell me if those would work well on Linux? As I may want to make a more definitive change to Linux.

I have an Emu X-board 49 and it's just lovely. The keys are superb and the software that comes with it(windows only) is a bit old, but the samples are wonderful!

On Linux it just works.
