I need some help/guidance on what Midi Controller to buy.

I have a budget of £100 and I would like to get a 25 key midi controller that has both trigger pads and Pitch Bend and Modulation wheels if possible.

I’ve seen two of these the M-Audio Oxygen 25 and the Samson Graphite 25 but not sure which one to get or not get either. (links below of the two controllers)

That or buy a keyboard and trigger pad separately
If anyone else has any suggestions/advice or recommendations it would be appreciated

the Samson has more features, although less pads, and the semi-weighted keys by themselves make it worth getting, it makes it much nicer to play and offers much better velocity sensitivity - at that price build quality is pretty much the same, so you cant really go wrong with either, my choice would be the Samson, but I would suggest you go and try them out first if you can


you will get better quality if you buy seperatly and pay more for each part, but that would mean doubling or tripling your budget to get everything, and in that case there are much better options out there - but still those 2 controllers do what you want them to do, better quality is only really a big issue if you are going to be gigging them or beating them up in the studio
