    Any recommendations for a decent midi keyboard/ controller for a beginner?

    I've just ordered Reason 4 and am now looking for a fairly cheap midi keyboard to get me going, has anyone got any recommendations? Are there any features I should be looking out for? Im a novice in production so any advice would be greatly appreciated! I will be running Reason on a fairly new mid range laptop with Vista premium, not sure of the exact spec
    Thanks in advance

    If your not looking 2 do loads of stuff, then download "bomes mouse keyboard". it turns ur pc keyboard indo a midi keyboard, so u dont hav 2 buy hardware. U will also need "midi yoke" to wire it to reason. theres a tutorial sumwhere on youtube. If ur looking to take things further, then buy a proper keyboard.
