I'm looking to get a midi keyboard, because I would like to be able to do some organ and piano on some of my songs. I was looking at the Korg microkey. It has 30 built in effects, and hooks up via usb. So, can I record with something like this directly into Reaper, without using vst's?
Here's the Korg Microkey.

I also seen this Alesis Q25.
