Default Do you use/prefer a 61 key controller or an 88 key controller?


I wanted to know from people who have tried/owned/used 61 key and/or 88 key controllers and which they prefer and why and if they wish they had the other size instead.

Thank you very much.

For me, 88 key all the way. If you are a piano player, it's an obvious choice. Plus, it allows you to access all of the available sounds for a loaded patch; some use the full keybed. It also depends if you have the physical room for one or not.

I use a 61 Key Roland A-500 Pro Controller but space was a consideration.

61, for space and I'm not a real player. MIDI makes me better.

I am using an "old" Yamaha P-35, 88 key digital piano. Also, I have a 88 key Korg Kross workstation, that I use as a MIDI controller, occasionally
