I am looking for a keyboard that is pretty cheap. I want to be able to upload settings onto it from the computer. (like i could upload sounds and set them to keys). Is this possible and what keyboards support this. I looked at a few Yamahas that have usb but they dont say that you can upload new sounds. Yamaha YPT-400 i think is the name of one keyboard i was intrested in.

alesis micron? i want one and have been trying to find one in a store that i could try out. they seem like they have good features, including usb connectivity and midi-sync.

i was looking into the alesis micron and a midi controller. The alesis is a little pricey and i want to be able to bring the keyboard with me and play it without a computer. Thank you for your help.

The Roland Juno-D is good, or one of the earlier models.
$800AUS is about as cheap as you would get for a decent synth with midi settings and stuff.

i dont really need a synth. Just a keyboard that i could upload sounds to, if that exists. I love all of the roland synths but they are just out of my price range.

like I told you:

Soft Sampler + MIDI Keyboard

if you don't mind paying the full price, then 500$ should do the trick...

software samplers -> torrents so all you need is a synth that has MIDI and a plug to get it to your computer. 200$-300$(you don't need a crazy minimoog synth, just synth that has MIDI protocols)


EDIT: ...and of course if you're rich then get a Fairlight CMI... just kiddin'

i currently have a keyboard with midi out. It is extremely basic. Is there some sort of hardware sampler that would take the midi of the keyboard and turn that into sounds. Basically it would do what the midi software would do on the computer

why do you want a hardware?

software is wayyyy cheaper and, depending on your computer, is more reliable.

Thanks. I am definatly intrested in something like that. If i went the software route what would you reccomend and how would i set it up. I use adobe audition to record so i guess i would need some sort of vst or vsti plugin
#15

if you want one that can actually store and play back samples then it's not going to be cheap, look into the korg triton series.
