    Anyone know of a decent midi keyboard (USB) that i can buy for under £100?

    I wanna start messing around making some music (see if i'm any good).

    Also, while you're here...what is the best music production software?

    Thanks! :D

    Here are a few choices for USB MIDI Keyboards, all under £100

    Software, if you are a beginner try Fruityloops http://www.fruityloops.com

    Or anything from the Ejay stable... http://www.ejay-uk.com/


    For Pro's CubaseSX is the leader, nothing can touch it, Sonar XL and Logic Platinum are also good, although Logic is no longer supported on the Windows Platform.

    Reason is not really for beginners although it is extremely good and contains everything your likely to need.

    You could also try Orion http://www.synapse-audio.com/orionplatinum.php this is another all in one music suite.

    Best thing to do is Download some demos and decide for yourself.

    The more powerful the application is the more resources it will take up on your PC, so if you intend on using stuff like Reason, CubaseSX etc, make sure you PC can handle it.

    If you need any more help just ask.
