Hi there!

I've decided to take that exciting step of buying my first ever MIDI 
controller / keyboard.  (!!)

The one that's caught my eye is the Edirol PCR-A30.  It has lots of 
knobs and sliders, a small (32-key) keyboard (but I'm not a pianist - 
I'll be using it to articulate chords, and not much more) and 
24bit/96khz USB Audio.  It seems pretty damn cool.

The other brand I've been pointed towards is Evolution - and I suppose 
the model I'd be going for would be the MK-425C.  It's not as featureful 
(just knobs, and 28 keys), but is a lot cheaper.

If anybody has any opinions on either of these keyboard / knob / slider 
MIDI controllers, I would greatly appreciate hearing them!

Thanks for your time.
