I’m considering buying a second hand Radium49 MIDI keyboard. The seller says it’s in mint condition and the price is 125e. Sound like a good deal to you? Has anyone had any problems with this kb and Renoise?
the R49 is a great thing, boosted my creativity alot, the keys are nice (but i have not really an idea about those things, really), and the knobs and faders are great to work with. 125€ is good for a secondhand one if its really mint … a new one costs around 180 € …
Have it myself, and agree with all Looza say about the keys+knobs/faders. Never had any problems with it, easy to install and works like a charm.
Go for it, man! I paid 220€ when I bought it and never regretted it.
i own them, now im selling them, btw : )
not because they’re bad but because i am, i couldn’t learn to play them at all, i’m addicted to tracking, keyboard is enough for me : ) anyway, playing out with knobs was fun… ; )
I have an m-audio keystation 61s and im quite satisfied… Havent used radium though
Thanks for the comments. You helped me make the decision. I have the Radium sitting on my desk now. The keys feel a bit cheap but they’re ok. After all the thing WAS cheap. Right now I’m figuring out how to use the thing. I don’t know how to change the MIDI channel yet. Oh, and another thing I’m doing right now: scrubbing out some sticker glue from the white keys. Why do people do that, mark the keys with stickers with notes in them? Apart from that the kb truly is in wonderful condition and there’s still 3 months left in its 1 year warranty.
Congrats, have fun with it.
