We love MIDI keyboard controllers, especially when it comes to building a home studio that can give semi-pro or even some professional studios a run for their money in terms of the quality of music you produce. Nowadays, gear is becoming more advanced and accessible to all of us, and in our case, MIDI keyboards are continuing to rule the gear world. We saw some very impressive models in our best MIDI keyboard controllers article, but what about the smaller, compact versions of these? Surprisingly, there are a lot more mini MIDI keyboards than there are larger models, such as 66 and even 88-key controllers — probably because many of us like a snug fit in our studios, travel a lot and need something convenient, or really don’t need a bunch of keys, buttons and knobs to be able to make our beautiful music. What’s even better is the cost of these things (typically) fall under $100! Let’s check out what we’ve got below.
