Reply To: Splitting up midi keyboard

William Smith

Wow! Good information. Yes, I was wanting to play a bass instrument in one zone and a piano in the other zone. This helps.

As an aside, I got an older AKAI MPKMini and, as from what I read, you cant set the velocity on the hardware. However, just to pass it on, I found out you can set the velocity on the keys in FL Studio. I am still new at that, but you have to fiddle with some curve chart thingy. Haha

Anyway, I will look into the zones thing more.

I plan on getting a different keyboard in the future and considering the one in your course. However, it may be to big for my setup.

I will say that I agree with you 100% about the number of the keys if your just making beats.

However, as we both know, you don’t need to run out and buy one right away because you can do it all inside of the DAW.

I remember reading about Deadmau and, at that time, he said that he didn’t know how to play piano and just programmed everything “in the grid”. So I am not going to panic if I am not 100% happy with my keyboard.

Heck, I find myself using the laptop keys to make some melodies. But, you can be more expressive with a midi keyboard because you got the wheels and dials if you like synth tweaking.
