After 9 months since I made a thread about taking piano lessons, I finally made the decision and got my first lesson today. So now I need to look for a keyboard so I can practice. Preferably 61 keys or higher with weighted keys. I was thinking a Midi controller since I really want to eventually incorporate it into Garageband and stuff. I know keyboards and piano will be different but ultimately I want to go keyboard. My instructor said weighted is the best. I've checked the M-audio (the only brand I know of for Midi) site and only see semi-weighted, would that work? Is "Key-Hammer action" the same thing as weighted? Give me some suggestions. Hopefully not too expensive since I am just starting. And any other tips when shopping for a keyboard. I want to get one soon.
