I like to tool around on my PC making music. I have been investigating the possibility of buying a keyboard to assist with composition. What does a MIDI keyboard do exactly? Why are some vastly more expensive than others? I have some neato VST plugins that emulate various synths and keyboards and I can use my qwerty keyboard to make sounds. Do I want one of these
? I don't mind spending some money but if I can get a good result from a cheaper piece of hardware that would of course be better. And is it possible to get ones that are pressure sensitive? Thanks in advance.
