    Compact Controller for VSL & EWQLSC.

    Hi,

    I would like to buy a compact size 49 key midi controller for the VSL & EWQLSC, any recommendation?

    I am thinking the Korg K49, but I am not sure if it has the after touch sensitivity tough. Any other suggestion?

    Thanks.

    Not with programmable buttons...it's great. I ditched my 88 weighted for a small light controller and assigned the VSL keyswitches to buttons. So far this is working very nicely.

    I have a Korg K49 and M-Audio Axiom 61. I like the Korg better for non-piano sounds and the Axiom for eps and acoustic pianos. I think the Korg is better made although it lacks thr sliders and buttons of the Axiom.

    You can map keyswitches to buttons??? I had no idea you could do that!

    Some suggestions:
    I think Studiologic makes a 49-key that's actually piano-weighted (if that's important to you)--it's the only one on the market. All other companies only make them at 88-keys.

    You can take a look at Novation's ReMOTE SL series--that automap feature is pretty killer if your sequencer supports it.

    CME's UF series had a bad start, but seems to have all the kinks ironed out, so take a look at their 49-key version as well.

    Korg Kontrol is very nice, and probably the easiest on the eyes (if you care about that).

    Although I detest most M-Audio products, the Axiom series seems to be one of the better products they've put out lately.
