When you are buying a MIDI Keyboard, I personally think semi-weighted piano keys are a MUST!
Now, it’s a little tricky, because most companies start offering semi-weighted piano keys in their 61-key model.. but I think those 61-key models are HUGE.. I always like a 49-key model.. so there aren’t as many options out there.. however, you can see my MIDI Keyboard reviews for FL Studio.
Also, a heads up, if you are interested in buying the M-Audio Oyxgen Pro.. here’s some useful links!:
Yes, the M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 Keys are nice.
M-Audio describes the Oxygen Pro piano keys as “best-in-class”, which I do agree with. They are full size, and allow you to get great emotion out of them.
Below I share a small part from my M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 review.
Is the M-Audio Oxygen Pro 49 Good for FL Studio?
Yes, FL Studio is the only DAW I use, and I purposely picked the Oxygen Pro 49 because of its features, and semi-weighted keys.
I personally suggest a minimum 49 key MIDI Keyboard for the best experience to be able to play the piano.
It was tricky to set up, but my M-Audio Oxygen Pro review shows you everything you need to know to install it, and get up and running.
One feature of a MIDI Keyboard that I truly think is worth the extra money is buying semi-weighted keys.
It really makes the difference over cheap “synth-type” piano keys, and lack deeper emotion.
