Keyboard

I have a copy of Cubase and some other programs.
I'd like to:
A) Be able to re-mix tracks.
B) Be able to create my own.

So I need a pretty decent input - a keyboard.
I'm not interested in half-baked stuff made by people like Belkin, I'm looking for a proper decent keyboard.
Looking to spend up to £65 I reckon, though this may vary.
Creative have a good one, anyone got any ideas what I should get?

I'm not sure if you are wanting a midi keyboard (of the musical variety) or a keyboard of the inputtylettery variety!

If it's a midi keyboard for creating music you want then i can highly recomend getting a Roland JV-30 and a usb midi interface. I don't think roland make the JV-30's anymore but you can get a second hand one for nice round £100 these days.

Regarding inputtylettery variety keyboards i dunno about them that much i just type on any that i have lying around!

I doubt ur gonna get a decent midi keyboard for £65 tbh. You're gonna need something with at least weighted pressure sensitive keys otherwise if your gonna be directly recording your dynamics are gonna be lifeless and flat. But if it's solely for inputting notes with step input on Cubase than any midi compatible keyboard will do! Depends on what you are gonna be using it for.

USB or MIDI?

My friend Ashley has one, and makes his own Dance tracks. I doubt he spent a lot, so I'll ask him.

Is that the same Roland that make the Cam machines?
