Whilst we are unable to comment on the pro's and con's of individual products, we receive so many requests for product information that we have partnered with reputable suppliers to provide a small collection of effects, instruments, equipment and other accessories for convenience. We like these companies for their secure online shopping, wide range of products and reasonable pricing. Using these links to purchase goods also helps to keep this site free ;-)

Alesis Digital Piano Alesis Recital 88-Key Beginner Digital Piano
The Alesis Recital is a full-featured digital piano with the features to make it easy to learn, teach and perform at any level. The 88 full-sized semi-weighted keys include adjustable sensitivity to fit your playing style, with built-in speakers and effects, so you're ready to start playing right out of the box. Recital includes a power adapter, so you can plug it into the wall and play all day, but it also can go mobile running on six of your own D cell batteries. Where the Recital really sets itself apart is with its teaching tools. In addition to split mode for different keyboard voices on the left and right sides, a lesson mode separates the keyboard into two areas with the same pitch and voice. That means a student can sit next to their teacher with both playing the same notes, for a simpler learning experience. But what about when an instructor isn't available? Recital is compatible with Skoove, an online piano-instruction service. Skoove listens to your performance to give real-time feedback, with adjustable tempo settings to match your skill level. Recital isn't just compatible with the standard Skoove: It also comes with a free three-month subscription to Skoove Premium to unlock all of the lessons and songs. Finally, when you know you're a virtuoso, the Recital has a sustain pedal input, USB-MIDI connectivity, and RCA stereo output, so you can expand your keyboard's capabilities to meet your own. The Alesis Recital is everything you need to get from fumbling in your living room to finessing up on stage.

Novation: Launchkey MK2 Mark II 61 Key Controller Keyboard
Essential keyboard controller for producing electronic music in Ableton Live. Launchkey is an easy-to-use MIDI keyboard controller. It’s pretty much the quickest and easiest way to produce and perform electronic music, especially in Ableton Live – because Novation designed it specifically for the purpose. You just plug in via USB and the keys, faders, knobs and pads immediately spring into life, giving you hands-on control of your grid, instruments, effects and mixer. Of course, if you don’t use Ableton, it’ll automatically map to other major music software too. The heart of any MIDI keyboard controller is the keyboard itself. The Launchkey synth-style keyboard is lightweight, fast and very easy to play, but also velocity-sensitive so you can create truly expressive performances. You can choose between 25, 49 and 61-note versions, depending on whether you want portability or practicality. Take Control of Ableton Live. The less time you spend messing with your mouse, the more time you have for making music. If you want immediate hands-on control of your session grid, instruments and effects, you should use a MIDI keyboard controller that integrates immediately and automatically with Ableton Live. Like this one! That’s what it’s designed for. Easily Make Beats and Trigger Loops. Sixteen RGB pads provide clip colour-matched feedback to enhance your workflow, letting you create and launch clips, trigger samples, control FX and loads more; all whilst playing your keys. They’re also velocity-sensitive, so you can really put some feeling into your beats. Tweak and Mix Your Tracks. Launchkey is designed to let you shape your sound however you like. The eight rotary knobs are rock solid, designed to give you confidence when tweaking your instruments and effects. The 49 and 61-note versions give you hands-on control of your mixer too, with nine dedicated faders. However many controls you opt for, they will all integrate seamlessly and immediately with Ableton Live, and can be reassigned to anything. Control All Major Music Software. Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. Although Novation designed Launchkey for Ableton Live, its pads, buttons, faders and knobs take control of all other major music software too using InControl. Start Immediately. Launchkey is fully USB bus-powered and class compliant, so it works straight away without power supplies or drivers on Mac or PC.
