    Hello Forumers!!

    Im really interested in gettting my first MIDI keyboard. However, I dont know which to choose between the three:

    1) AKAI LPK25 MINI 25-NOTE USB MIDI CONTROLLER KEYBOARD

    video in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Q2 [...] dded#at=16

    2) Alesis Q25 (25 note usb midi)

    3) Alesis Q49 49-Key USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller

    http://www.alesis.com/q49

    Let me point out that price isnt an issue for me. My main concern is the amount of keys. 25 vs 49 keys. I am a pianist so when i saw the video of the akai midi keyboard in action, I was really surprised about its size! I know that the amount of keys really dont matter much, since its a''MIDI'' keyboard and you can program sounds into them. But still, can the 25 keys do everything the 49 keys do? Does the key difference matter that much?

    Thank you for your insights, in advance!
