There’s nothing worse than running out of notes when you are in the throws of recording the ultimate synth line. Operating the octave up and down buttons mid-performance can be frustrating and can definitely break your flow. It makes sense, then, to upgrade your small MIDI keyboard to an 88 note option. Luckily, Amazon has kicked off the Black Friday keyboard piano deals early by slashing the price of the Alesis Q88 MKII to only $189, meaning you can expand your note choice for a whole lot less.
This essential home studio accessory will not only help you take control of virtual instruments and effects parameters but also allow you to get your ideas down quicker and more efficiently - a great MIDI controller can seriously improve your workflow!
