Guys. I’m about to buy an Axiom 49 key midi-keyboard/controller. They have them for $250 at Long and McQuade, and they seem better than the Oxygens I played with. I was thinking about a Novation remote SL 49, but I don’t know if it is worth the extra expense? I’m looking for someone to say “get THIS one, for god’s sake!”. Anyone got any ideas which to get? Anyone know if the automap plays nice with Renoise?
semi-weighted or otherwise nice-feeling keys.
a few knobs and sliders, but not too many.
around the $300 mark.
seamless integration with Renoise and Logic.
durable. I have a one-year-old who will try and mount it.
(note: I did a search on this topic beforehand and found some bits and pieces, but they were outdated)

Hey, can you assign a midi controller to a number of different instruments simultaneously in renoise, or does it have to be to one instrument with different sounds mapped over the keyboard? I was just wondering if I will have to do my drumming into one track at a time or multiple tracks at a time?
The MPK49 looks awesome. I am now also considering getting an MPD25 midi controller and a separate, simple keyboard (maybe an oxygen or just a keyboard unit). The cost is about the same and it keeps things modular.
Ha, yeah, mpd24, what was I thinking. Probably the Keyboard names got me confused. Just to confirm. Say I have a kick drum sample in instrument slot “0” in renoise, and I want it playing on track 1, and I have a snare drum sample in instrument slot “1” in renoise, and I want it playing on track 2, can I set up a MIDI controller so that I can bash away a kick and snare pattern in one take and have it trigger the kick in slot “0” and the snare in slot “1” at the same time? I just can’t imagine a way to set it to do this.
