Thread: What do you think of this hardware setup

    Default What do you think of this hardware setup

    I am looking to buy some hardware to be used mainly for composition and not so much performance (although maybe eventually). I already have a high end Dell 1520 I just got two months ago and its pretty powerful, so I should be good computer wise.

    Here's what I was thinking:
    M-Audio Axiom 49 Midi Controller

    Korg Pad Kontrol Midi controller

    Laptop (already have)
    All the music software anybody could possibly wish for.

    Will this be enough to start making beats (yes I know you can do it without, but I feel that at least a keyboard is absolutely neccessary)

    any suggestions? I have money to buy all this but at the same time I need it for other things (i'm still in highschool). I feel like if I get neither of the two for xmas, I will just buy the axiom 49, but if I get one of the two I'll buy the other.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I would get the Axiom, since it has 8 pads already.
    Save the money that u woulda spent on the Korg.

    You wouldn't need to buy both pieces. The Axiom would be straight. Keys, knobs and pads.

    you really think so? I heard the axiom pads aren't the greatest but they'll do. I really like the pad kontrol especially the lights and the xy pad lol. Maybe if i could get one for cheap?

    thanks for the feedback everyone

    if that's the case then get the m-audio oxygen.


    M-AUDIO - MIDI Keyboard Controllers

    i wanted hammer keys for the longest but after googlin' hammer keys vs. synth action keys, i finally found a reason to switch (and i REALLY wanted the hammer keys, i've already know how synth keys feel like on my friend's triton le 61 keys). synth keys are better for playin' really fast melodies. hammer keys are just good for piano players and for playin' piano melodies. the oxygen doesn't have endless knobs tho'.

    i agree if u have the axiom u dont need the padkontrol even though u could probly find one for real cheap on ebay but a waste of money if u ask me

    hey everybody, long time no update.

    I got both the axiom 49 and the kontrol pad for xmas and I love them both. I have to say tho, the pads on the axiom feel kinda worthless especially in comparison to the korg pad kontrol. Pad kontrol is possibly the funnest instrument i've played in my life.

    and yes in hindsight, the oxygen would seem like a better deal, but the site that shipped the axiom messed up and sent two. after I contacted the company they said just keep it so maybe i'll buy another piece of equipment

    The pads on the axiom are not mapped out perfectly in reason so you only hit what you get auto loaded...........you can get like that for the redrum but i think the pads on the korg are better for samples and drums..in programing the pads to certain sounds i mean ...the keys in the axiom are the shit for the piano lines and bass rolls......
