We're in the market for a new small USB midi-keyboard.

this will be used to "document" simple song tunes... I only need 32-37 
keys to get to G below Middle C and E above...that's enough for the 
average vocal range.

I'm interested in anyone's recommendations on brand... not necessarily 
features: something solid, well built, I look for "trouble free, doesn't 
break" first... semi-weighted keys preferred.

e.g. the

Edirol PCR-300 32-Key USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller

Korg MicroKontrol 37-Key USB Controller Keyboard 

look good but  are way over kill for my needs as we don't really intend 
to make music with this thing... I just want to set Garage band to  
"Bamboo flute" and tap in some simple tunes to nail down  melodic lines.

I would like to get in at around $150.00 if there's anything in that 
price range that is decently built. I don't need a wide range of 

On the other hand if < $200.00 only buys trouble, we don't want to go there.

Email me off list if you have any recommendations for an inexpensive but 
still solid midi input key board that will work on a Mac with Garage Band...
