Native Instruments A61

Returned my MPK Mini earlier this week, as I kinda reached the limit of what I could do with it. 25 keys / 2 octaves is a pretty short range of notes after all. It quickly became a problem after a few weeks of learning.

I almost bought the Native Instruments A49, but settled instead for the 61 keys version because why not. 5 full octaves and a pretty sweet mod-wheel. That mod-wheel will be a lot better than the MPK Mini's knobs and joystick. It also seems to come with several interesting libraries and tools, should be interesting.

It will hopefully integrate well with Reaper and Kontakt. :)
