    Default Good Keyboard/Synthesizer

    Hey guys, i'm looking to take my production to the next level by getting a good keyboard / hardware synthesizer that i could use without plugging it into my computer..

    You know something i can make sound without actually interacting with the computer, but then later on take this sounds into my daw and further tweak or arrange them..

    something in-between the 500-800$ price tag.

    Well you don't want a keyboard, you want a synth. For your price range this is what i'd recommend ->

    Beat me to it! Im saving up for one right now... Great synth, I was torn between this and a Mopho. Ive always wanted a Monophonic synth and I have used Arturia products before, the 49 Key Analog Laboratory. Heres a link to the Mopho so you make your decision.

    I would like something with more keys, something i can lay both hands on.

    Ahh, with more keys comes a greater price tag. That's something you'll have to bear in mind then. I'm not aware of any 49 key synths at a $500 price tag.

    Okay so you want a polyphonic synth? Do you care if it is 100% analog or no?

    Analog synths just have richer sounds, they are defiantly better synthesizers. Do some research and figure out what you want out of a synth.

    Yup, I've never really seen the point of digital synths, you might as well just use a MIDI controller & plugins. Analog all the way.

    Agreed. I use poly plugins and Mono Analog.
