• Need a cheap synthesizer for recording

Ok, so I'm getting a 4 track digital recorder from my uncle and I want a cheap synthesizer that can make a variety of sounds. I don't know much about playing keyboard, but I want to learn. Thanks!
this all depends on whether you wanna go digital or analogue.
If you want to learn to play, you want to get a keyboard with a soundbank. A synthesizer is something that you can [I]create[/I] sounds with. I'm guessing you're just confused with the terminology here (if not, please tell!). Synthesizers are much much more expensive and often have a limited keyboard (some don't even have one at all) compared to the playing keyboards. Synthesizer: [img]http://www.vintagesynth.com/misc/mercury1.jpg[/img] Notice all the knobs and sliders! Notice how small the keyboard is. For the same price you can get a keyboard like this: [img]http://www.productwiki.com/upload/images/yamaha_psr_s910.jpg[/img] --- If you actually do want a synth, then you can't really go cheap. A "cheap" synthesizer will set you back like a thousand bucks.
not true at all. where i'm at you can go analogue for under a thousand.
