^yes, because keytars=bad music. THINK PROGRESSIVE YOU FOOL!!11one1eleventy

The roland ax7 is 400 dollars, but I cant seem to find a link for it.

But seriously, the 80s are dead and buried. Rocklahoma was like a zombie convention.

keytar? equals guitar = gui +key. Basically a keyboard with a strap.
And extra stuff...
#7
Guitar with a keyboard instead of strings and no frets, or a keyboard on a strap with a useless guitar neck sticking out of it.

Either way works.
#8
it's a keyboard worn and played like a guitar with octave buttons as frets

uh, i don't have on but i really want one

A keytar is a keyboard that can be worn like a guitar so that keyboardists can be mobile. I have no idea where to get one, but they look sweet.

I think the neck is like the pedals on the bottom of the regular pianos. Don't quote me on that though.

you can't actually play anything with just a keytar. you need to have a synth station hooked up to it and have that hooked up to your amp. i hope you knew that... or else i just rained on your parade.

Thank you! Nobody on this forum knows anything about anything.

A keytar is a MIDI controller. Trying to make sound with it is like trying to play a game on a gamecube controller without a gamecube.

A MIDI controller is used to control a synthesizer. You need a synthesizer first.

When you have your synthesizer, you're then going to need to know how to use it. There's more to synthesizers than just the keys.

not all of them work that way
some have an optional MDI port and also have the synthsataion in them so you just plug and play

All synths have a MIDI out. That's a given.

There are some synth keytars, but not many.

Alternatively, you could just nail a handle onto a Microkorg or any small synth.
