Hi

Im after a bit of hardware advice...

Can anyone recommend a decent keyboard/controller that works well with both R6 AND Logic, out of the box??

Thanks!

Nektar Panorama P4 is the only controller you should consider if you want unparalleled Reason control and integration. Works with Logic, too.

my budget is as low as possible, but could stretch to £300 or £400 if neccessary...

Ideally cheaper though.

Im no keys player so 25 keys is fine....

Well no, it's specifically engineered to control Reason, and takes advantage of Reason's Remote codecs for integration and control that simply cannot be done in other DAW's. It's just that it has a mode called "Internal" that allows you to use it with other DAW's, either while ReWired or just by itself. You can, of course, personalize parameters to your heart's content.

I have a pcr 800 from edirol. It's not the newest keyboad but it's works very nice with Reason, you can scroll through devices and it automatically sets up mappings for devices (well i guess reason does).

I think there are control mappings for logic available but i'm not sure. It does support regular MIDI though...

If you don't actually need "real keys", you might want to look at Bome's Mouse Keyboard or Soundco's Virtual Midi Controller.

Both offer more flexibility than the built-in virtual keyboards.
