Midi Keyboard

I decided to bite the bullet and buy my first peice of midi hardware my reasoning was that if I cannot warrant the cost of buying myself a £30 midi keyboard then may aswell forget about creating music on my computer. Sure you can do it with a mouse keyboard or by placing the notes into the sequencer, but its not as easy. Since I had piano lessons when I was a child a keyboard seemed to be a the most natural way for me to create music.
