I need help deciding on a keyboard for MIDI orchestration. After doing some research, it seems that a weighted, hammer action keyboard would be best to have more control for velocity. I'm not sure how many keys I would need. My budget is around 1000 for a keyboard.
Also I'd like to get some input on libraries for orchestration, specifically for cinematic/video-game/epic-battle type of music. I've been looking at a few like Orchestration Essentials. But maybe I should just get something that covers more instruments like komplete 8?
Any thoughts, comments, and advice are welcome! Thank you!
