Hopefully some of you have soem insight. I really like the variations and number of different synths/sounds/keyboards that some of the moderately priced keyboards have, and I'm looking to stay between 1,000 to 1500 budget wise. Looks like i have a few options, like maybe a korg m50 or something along those lines. On the other side of the coin there's the midi keyboard and vst way to go as well. For that budget i think i could obtain a pretty decent setup.
Any suggestions, ideas? What are you currently using?
I will say i despise having to turn on the pc to get things going, but if the midi/vst value is much better than a physical keyboard, then so be it.
I did have the oppurtunity to try a korg sv1, which was awesome, but sort of a one trick pony. I really want that endless variety, but dont have big bucks to spend on one of the higher end workstations.
I'd just buy a nice midi controller with weighted keys and quality mod wheels and then buy one of the highly regarded synth packs.
