Hi Ben! I'm looking to buy my first keyboard. Thanks to your blog I found out you use the novation launchkey 49. Would you still recommend that or would you buy a different one if in my shoes?

Hello! The Launchkey is a fine keyboard, but I've found that I don't use any of the extra bits (faders, knobs, drum pads, etc). I'll probably end up getting a different, simpler keyboard eventually, though I still don't know what model yet. Again though, there's nothing wrong with the Launchkey. It has great build quality and I can imagine it would take many years of abuse. :)
