Hi and welcome to the forum.

I tried a few keyboards and added a little something:

The best I found then was the Nektar Impact LX49 + (unfortunately had little time after that and couldn't write a review for it)
that costs € 137 and is mMn a recommendation

Alternatively, or in addition to a keyboard, I would like to suggest something else, namely Native Instruments Machine

This is a combination of controller and plug-in, or program that does something in common with the controller.
The great thing about it is that it is structured quite intuitively and you can start with it in no time, and just be creative and something cool comes out quickly.
If you then deal with it a little longer, and also watch relevant videos on YouTube, for example, you will be able to do extremely crazy things with it.

since you work with Ableton Live, it would also be an option, e.g. the Ableton Push Controller, but unfortunately this is a bit over your budget:

have fun making music (the most important thing is always to have fun and enjoyment) and continue to be here in the forum
