sure, its spiffy. get one with knobs too, so you can assign those to whatever (cutoff, res, envs). fruity has this neat midi learn function that makes assigning midi to hardware a breeze.
drumpads are fun and inspirational, not necessary as such but nice to have.
Alesis Photon X25 is a 25 key midi controller with 10 assignable knobs as well as pitch shiftm modulation. Plus a infa-red XYZ controller (the ones where you don't have to touch anything it's all within light detection)
It has a built in preset for massive where everything is pre-assigned and easily controllable as well as many other native instruments and other famous vsts ... It's fairly cheap for what it is, maybe just over £120 when I bought it 3 years a go ... it's gonna be a lot cheaper now and myn's working perfectly ....
Oh and it has audia inputs to record vocals in or guitar or w/e if you ever venture out to other genres. It's a great overall product and I advise you to get it!
