The 8 best budget MIDI controller keyboards

I use a JP8000 (pictured above) as my main keyboard/controller in the studio but I need a compact controller for my portable setup. So I started doing some research online and found this article on MusicRadar. They have a list of 8 keyboards that fit the bill. I'm familiar with some of them and they are all under $150. Click the names to read the reviews on each keyboard.

1.  M-Audio Keystation Mini 32

2. Korg microKey

3. Acorn Instruments Masterkey 49

4. Alesis Q25

5. Behringer U-Control UMA25S

6. Line 6 Mobile Keys

7. IK Multimedia iRig Keys

8. Akai MPK Mini
