So I realized that it’s not as easy to find a good guide on this as if you were looking for a computer or a microphone. Well, I can see why. How many people have you seen asking “Which are the best midi keyboards for beginners?” on forums?
Don’t get me wrong, there are still a few, but there are only so many uses to a device like that. Unless you are a beatmaker, you probably don’t care that much.
When it comes to mics, there are singers and rappers, recording themselves, who look for condenser and dynamic microphones. There are bands recording both vocals and instruments, which are also doing their research. Many people do podcasts, so they need simple USB-microphones for them and their guests.
There are just so many uses to microphones. And I can give you examples of most of the essentials of a home recording music studios, such as headphones, monitors, even computers.
With MIDI controllers you mostly just make music on your workstation. Therefore, the demand is still there, but it’s not nearly as high.
Anyways, let’s get to the point and start our lecture on which controllers are a good fit when you are just starting out!
