Default MIDI Keyboard Controller / PT

I wasn't sure if this needed to be in the MIDI forum, but I put it here...

I'm looking to get a small MIDI keyboard (25 keys) for using in PT. Two questions:
1) Anyone have recommendations for what to get? I have a nice electric piano so what I want is a small keyboard to enter melodies and use the variable controls to set parameters. I've seen 25-key boards from M-Audio, Edirol, Alesis, etc.

2) Can I use the knobs on the controller to control parameters in SampleTank? I looked through old posts and it seems like it's not straightforward.

Thanks
Rob

PS I'm using PT 6.4, but I'll be upgrading to 7 soon

To question 1, do not buy the Alesis units.
I had 2 Photon X25's that blew their firmware using both Reason Adapted and SampleTank in PT.
You might also look at Novation. Their Remote 25 is a nice little unit ($299-). There is also a Remote LE 25 ($199-) and in January '06 they are coming out with a new unit Remote SL 25 ($379-).
You really don't need a controller with onboard audio since you have a PT rig.

question 2, yes, you can control SampleTank with the knobs and sliders of a MIDI controller. You just have to figure out which CC#'s are tied to the knobs. I know that CC7 is the volume and CC10 through whatever control the other settings. Each effect on SampleTank uses different CC# for the knobs in the GUI.

I have the M-Audio Radium 64. It pretty much rocks. With a little bit of fiddling you can also use the knobs and sliders to control PT.

Thanks...I'll definitely stay away from Alesis. Do you know what the difference between the Novation 25 and 25 LE? It doesn't say on their website...

Just exactly how can you set up the sliders and knobs to mix / control Pro Tools with? There seem to be only two options - HUI and MotorMix - in the Peripheral setup.
