best feel / playability under 300 - Midifighter.
i also love the pads on my Maschine, but that's pretty much double the price.

Re: Best midi controller for finger drumming?

I really like Maschine's buttons. Maybe try to get a hold of a second-hand Mikro somewhere?

I really like the pads on them, but heard their a waste if you use then just for the pads. Is this true?

Well the knobs are kinda useful as well (at least on the normal MK2 version). But mostly yeah, the pads are still seeing the most use.

on a serious note

make one for like $100... sanwa buttons, some 10k pots and a teensy.. you will feel better about making your own over buying a premade controller.. but midi fighter if i have to pick a best for finger drumming.. the arcade buttons are just better imo fir drum rolls n such.

Maschine Mikro is really good! Good for finger drumming and melodies, the one knob has a lot of uses as well. It works best with the standalone software it comes with but its MIDI mode works with Ableton & Fl Studio just fine. If you work with ableton already maybe like at the Akai MPD's

Hey, just a little advice: Don't comment on super-old posts if it's not necessary.
