light keyboard for touring

Postby alterego » Thu Feb 04, 2010 2:27 pm

Hi there
I live in Rome and sometimes come to the uk for tours. The band I’m about to start touring with already have some keyboards I can use. Nevertheless I ‘need to buy a light and not extremely wide keyboard to implement the sounds.

To cut a long story short, I’d need something that has the following:

Must be wide no more than 73cm
Some on board sounds
A pair of audio outputs
And (possibly but isn’t a “must”) some assignable pads and slides.

Could you guys suggest something ;-) ?

Thanks a lot

Hi alterego!

Could you please stop multiple posting - this is the best forum for this query, and it's most confusing if other users reply elsewhere as well. I've placed your duplicate in our Holding Tank.

Thanks ;)

What kind of sounds? The Nord Modular G2 is an awesome synth but is a virtual analogue so won't do great 'choir/strings/piano/organ' type sounds...

Also, what budget?

Hiya.

The G2 is kinda of expensive. the budget is gonna be around the 400/500 pounds figure ;-)

Sounds i need are good pads, strings and choirs.

Cheers
