MIDI Controller recommendation

Hey VVVVser,

im searching for a good quality MIDI Controller. I need Vertical and at least one horizontal Fader… Some rotary knobs and buttons are nice to have :)

Any recommendations ?

Thanks a lot,
Tobi

All I can think of for this is an Akai APC40.

Or there is this Behringer CMD MM-1 DJ MIDI controller, around 90 euro’s, never used it, looks nice.

A controller with faders located horizontal AND vertical makes the device very large and thus expensive.

im using xone k2 really nice

perhaps the Faderfox UC3 is an option for you: http://www.faderfox.de/uc3.html

I personally use that Behringer CMD MM-1 and really like it. You can buy a few other modules and even attach them to each other, the MM-1 being the center part with a built in USB hub. Very handy and the built quality is pretty good for 90 Euros.

I also have the APC40 and its very nice, but rather big and heavy. If you dont need the grid of buttons I would recommend the Behringer.

Also would mention the Novation Zero SL MKII which has a lot of useful functionality, but might once again be a bit overkill for what you are trying to do.

thanks a lot guys…
i’ll buy the behringer ;)

Or go for an arduino mega & osc library and u get 1024 steps per fader via osc ;)
