I’m looking for a 49 key MIDI keyboard (normal sized keys, nice with aftertouch, but not a necessity) that has pads on it that you can use to easily “save” chords on. So basically, if I play a chord on the keyboard, and press a pad, the chord will be saved to that pad. Basically just that.
Are there any affordable MIDI keyboards that will allow me to do this? I’ve seen quite a few MIDI keyboards with pads, but when checking out the details, it seems like these are for playing drums or trigger samples or whatever, which I don’t need.
Something slim and simple like the Alesis V49 would be perfect, but it doesn’t seem like you can assign chords to any of the pads on it.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
