I dont know if i should buy a keyboard?

Ive been wanting one since I suppose you could use it to put theory into practice
but what other uses can I get from it ?
Can they record?
Or can you make a sequence and it will loop it so you can play over it say on guitar?

What would you say the benefits of a keyboard would be ?
Thanks

depends what you get, something top end like a Korg Oasys costs a pretty penny but its almost a recording studio in a keyboard. Something cheap like a Casio wont do much.

as for benefits, keyboards can do a helluva lot. its a really versatile instrument. You can play a whole orchestra with one person, or you can play a nice classic organ sound etc.

also, keyboards are kinda like the basis of music/music theory because of the fact that it has a wide range of notes AND it can play in all keys.

Hope that helps

not off the top of my head, sry.

Good keyboard brands are Yamaha, Roland, Korg and Nord. Good cheaper versions are Kawaii and Casio. (I think ive covered most of them)

If you just want to learn theory go for anything with black and white keys. I used to have a rubbishing make, but it did the job and I'm now a competent theory head. I would strongly recommend buying a cheap keyboard to learn theory.

If you want to worry about making good music with a keyboard or synthesizer or midi, worry about it differently because learning theory and playing keys are two different things. Especially if you're on a budget!

I bought a MIDI controller keyboard a while ago.

They are very cheap and you can do anything with them except play live.
