    Which of these should I buy? All of them work excellent with both Logic and Ableton! Apologies for the long list!

    you already have a massive list of suggestions...

    so put them in front of the word "review" in google..and go do your homework..

    your question is somewhat meaningless in the way you have asked it.. and it makes me wonder if you
    have even a clue of what you want to do with said "device"

    My 2 cents ...
    I was in a similar position early this year , and after 3 months of research and youtube tutorials , I end up with Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2 .
    Very good keyb , with good key (fatar) , and very good software integration .

    depends on your budget dvvdv buddy
    if you wanna get the best device /midi keyboard/ controller as you wish,u do have a quite nice list so..
    (first take a search on which has better workflow /easy processing/design/pattern usage/others )
    and write down your picks ,narrow it to 3 picks ,those picks should be your best choice that you cant go wrong with
    then you can either go einy menne miny moe with one of them no problem there because that what i did
    when i got my arturia Laboratory ,it was great choice (other 2 were akai mpk mini and NI komplete Kontrol)

    good luck getting the right midi dvvdv

    I don't get this thread. Your listed products range from a wireless tranzport daw controller unit, to a simple keyboard, to a matrix midi controller, to a motorized fader daw controller. Maybe you should find out what you want and need before you make a list ...

    @dvvdv ,

    You have listed +/- 97 keyboards: Why should we have to guess what you are after since you obviously don't have a clue by yourself?!

    It would be wiser to list three or four different keyboards and then ask us our opinion but what you have done is simply useless. Both for you and both for us.

    Life is too short to waste some time on this kind of threads, sorry mate.
