Default Recommendations for a mini keyboard controller for Pro Tools 2020

Hey folks, sorry to ask but I never knew this would be so complicated.

I'm basically looking for a small midi controller/keyboard that works well with Pro Tools 2020. The ideal would be to have something with transport controls and a short scale keyboard 25-32 keys.

I actually bought a M Audio Axiom Air Mini 32 because I saw it worked with Pro Tools First and therefore I figured it would work with Pro Tools 2020. How naive of me. I later found out this was a bit of dated piece of equipment and it seems that it stopped working with PT since PT10/11.

I tried to exchange it for a Novation Impulse 25 but that had iffy issues with PT2020 too.

Any tried and tested midi controller/keyboards of yours that you guys could recommend?

Running Mac OS 10.14.6, Pro Tools 2020.5.0 on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019).

Thanks in advance!

I have a Novation Launchkey 49 which is bit bigger what you are looking for, but it works well and only gripe is the sliders and knobs are not touch sensitive.

Thanks! I'll check that out. So all the transport, arpeggiator/scale functions 100% via HUI?

The Oxygen 25 from M-Audio works great with PT 2020.5.

You mean beyond stop, play, record, pause, and loop? It has those...maybe I misunderstand "transport"?
