Following on from my ‘electronic music’ thread I think I’ve kind of led myself to believe that what I actually want for my basic needs is a keyboard controller.
At a basic level what im looking for is something to get started on exploring virtual instruments - for the most part, using it to add piano/keys and drums - and potentially other virtual instruments - to guitar recordings I make.
Am I right in thinking that if I want to tap out my own drum tracks then one with a few ‘pads’ would be the way forwards?
I notice you can get standalone pad units, iehttps://www.andertons.co.uk/akai-mpd218-controller-pad-mpd218
But for the basics of just tapping out a fairly simple drum beat then I’m guessing a keyboard controller with pads would make sense rather than have two devices to do the job where one could be used instead.
This is really an area that I’m not well schooled in (and the more I read, the further down the rabbit hole I get and the more confusion that ensues!) so would appreciate any helpful pointers!!
