Well, I'll cut straight to the chase and save explaining the story behind this.

I basically know nothing about synth, and my band are looking at organising a gig, and one of the bands I'd like to support use a synth. I don't want to look daft when I ask them, so I'll ask here. Would we need to provide anything out of the ordinary to accommodate the use of a synth? Or is it just a matter of we provide the PA/amps and they bring the "synth" [like I said, I know nothing about them, I just assume they're... keyboards, basically, is that right?]?

They can be keyboards or effect pedals. If it's an effect pedal you can just mic up an amp.
