Re: Electronic keyboards
Hi. Way back at the beginning of this century whe had in our pockets atoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
mobile phone and we had at home a computer or carried a laptop. Now we have
a pocket computer with a phone attached.
From the comments I've recieved so far it would appear that keyboards and
computers are starting to merge together to the point some might ask "is
this a computer with musical abilities or is it a musical instrument with a
computer built in. The resulting sounds might bee good but it is a shame
one has to be musically talented and at the same time have some advanced
computer or electronic knowledge. I wonder if double manuals are as complex
as single manuals. Walter.

Just a few points I forgot to put in my last message.
The Tyros 5 was around 3800 new but because it's a discontinued model
you could probably get it cheaper. I believe you can get it as a 61 or
The Juno DS model is under 1000, but, based on the sounds of the Juno-G,
I'm going to bet that the DS sounds are even better, and I believe those
come as 61, 76, and 88 key varieties.
I believe these keyboards don't come with internal speakers, so you'll
have to get some external monitors or whatever. The Tyros does have its
own speakers which you can either buy separately or as a
The Tyros is considered a workstation and the Juno I believe is a synth,
so both have their advantages and disadvantages (Tyros is better at
sampled instruments). Both work with MIDI via USB.
Unfortunately, these keyboards don't have any forms of real
accessibility built in, but they do use buttons and knobs to do things,
and for the most basic things you need only press one or two buttons.
The more complicated things (like internal audio recorder/midi
sequencer/song finder etc) you would need to memorise menus and so on.
