Q: What is the best budget MIDI keyboard?

A: Budget MIDI keyboards fall into two main categories – the more portable devices with 25 keys and the larger, desk-based options with 49 or more keys. In the mini corner, for the sheer number of features crammed into such a light, compact footprint, MusicRadar’s choice is the Akai MPK Mini Mk3.

Q: How many keys does a MIDI keyboard have?

A: The number of keys in the best MIDI keyboard correspond to the number of octaves you can play. The minimum you’ll find is 25-keys. The maximum can be 88-keys for a full-scale keyboard (equivalent to a piano).

Q: How much is a full-size 88 key MIDI keyboard?

A: You can power it with only USB, no power supply needed. Why we love it: it’s a full-size 88 key MIDI keyboard for 200 USD. 88 Keys (Semi-Weighted) Software or DAW included: Ableton Live Lite, AIR Music Tech Xpand!2 Other versions: 32 keys, 61 keys, 88 keys Ok this isn’t cheap. But a fully weighted MIDI keyboard usually isn’t.

Q: Is the Akai mini the right MIDI keyboard for You?

A: The pared away, sparse design emphasizes the MIDI keyboard. You won’t find any pads, knobs or buttons on it. If you want more keys than the Akai Mini and don’t care about the pads, this is the right keyboard for you.
