how does keyboard manufactures still stay alive?
Plugins or Vsts are way way better than buying hardware decidcated.
For instance, i got the korg krome and realized that my smartphone has more capabilities that that piece of shit keyboard.

my smartphone can:
1. sample and playback
2. use music software like Caustic 3, just needs a sound library.
3. can emulate turntables or samplers and romplers.
4. can export to WAV or MP3 and midi data. just need a midi controller if you want.

korg krome is a piece of shit. how does music manufactures havent caught on on making better hardware and expansion?

-most musicians don't want to deal with laptops/midi during live performance

-many keyboards are sold to people who aren't interested in computers, such a churches

-hardware is much more practical than VSTs for many musicians

>Plugins or Vsts are way way better than buying hardware decidcated.

that is simply not true. If you want all of what you listed you buy a fucking workstation and not a digital piano. Jackass...

I mean, if you have a Prophet V.

But most keyboards and synths are so basic that it would be more useful to use them as MIDI controllers than actual keyboards.

Anyways, stealth MIDI controller thread.
I'm planning on getting an Ableton Push. A bit overpriced (I'm importing. $1k here fuk dat shit maine), but the license is included and I haven't seen a better controller.

If your talking synthesizers I can tell you what makes hardware better than digital

>Real
>Time
>Parameter
>Automations
Nothing is as fun a twisting the filters on a hardware synth

musician technician here
how do you plan on impressing people with sick piano skills, if you no piano? you just gonna whip out your smart phone, 'ayy look I can play mary had a little lamb'
no you cuck
use all of your fucking fingers and play some damn free hand jazz.
VST's are the bridge between your fingers pressing down on real keys to software. no one uses their mouse to click on keys unless checking out how your sound design is coming out
I'm sorry you bought a shit keyboard. perhaps you should meet someone with more social status than you and bring them to guitar hero next time

fuck I bit that bait hard

>>47653557
that korg is fucking sexy

get the best thing you can for your price range. that's a really hard question though. do you want something with pre loaded sounds? wanna make your own sounds? weighted keys? just an interface for your DAW?
if you're just getting something to practice on, I'd get the most reasonably priced board with weighted keys. check reviews to make sure it'll last a long time too

ive been playing piano by ear since i was 7. im really good. vsts are way way way better than they were in 2004. Since ive been playing by ear for so long, i can pick out what sounds convincing and what doesnt.
an average listener couldnt tell the difference between a vst made song vs a real instrumentation.
the most master class VSTs are around the price range where the full sets are up to $11,000. I have the means of acquiring this.

if you got a computer or a laptop, just get yourself 88 key midi controller and a standalone plugin.
