  1. I'd meant audio recording. All things considered, I'll probably stick with a basic weighted keyboard, though I'll definitely take a look at workstation keyboards during a visit to the music store and start saving up for one if it catches my eye. Thanks for the help!
  2. I would just go with a $100 MIDI keyboard except I've been wanting to get my own piano/keyboard for a long time now, and a synth-action keyboard just won't cut it for practicing. Yes, you're right, I was definitely unclear about MIDI controllers vs. keyboards. That clears things up. I won't be doing much, if any, live recording. And if I do play it elsewhere, the only thing I care about is that the built-in piano sound sounds good. So I don't think I'd have much of a need for built-in sounds--at least, not on a keyboard. But I do want a keyboard since, like I said, I've been wanting to have something to practice on for a while now, and my preference is definitely going to lean toward weighted ones (or semi-weighted, at the absolute least). I like the idea of buying a keyboard and a separate MIDI controller a lot. That's likely what I'll end up doing. I'm trying to get my feet wet with production by getting a keyboard I'd wanted to buy anyway, and I can't see a reason for getting the $1500+ keyboards since I won't really be needing the built-in sounds and bells & whistles, not at that level. It'd be nice even at a non-professional level but I can't justify spending that much yet haha. But having a MIDI controller like the Korg would be nice for some extra stuff. And if I do end up needing more sounds, I'll probably just end up buying something like Komplete at some point (another thing to save for...oh well ). Would that purchase make sense for my situation? I just want to make sure I'm headed in the right direction before making a major purchase like this.
  3. Sweet! After looking around on Sweetwater I think what I'm looking for is just a keyboard and not a MIDI controller--for now, anyway. I've been looking for a good keyboard for a while--something with 88 keys, hammer action, 1-2 pedal connections. I don't want to delve into built-in sounds yet I don't think--currently I'm looking for something I can play on to send MIDI note data to my computer. My priority right now is to get a quality keyboard that feels like a real piano but also has some sort of MIDI capabilities, and a lot of keyboards I saw had MIDI/USB connectivity. So I'm probably going to stick with a normal keyboard over a MIDI controller (something like this or this). Are those wise choices? Would there be an advantage to getting a MIDI controller instead? Would it be wise to get a MIDI controller down the road? And what DAWs are best for working with MIDI?
  4. I've been dabbling in music production on and off for a few years and I'm looking around for a MIDI keyboard but I have a few questions. 1) Is there any good gear out there that functions both as a good keyboard (with semi-weighted keys at the least) and as a decent MIDI controller for $300-$500? Or would I be better off buying them as two separate things? I'm not looking for many bells and whistles on the controller part of it but at minimum I want to have MIDI/USB connectivity if I get a combined deal. 2) Is it possible to hook up a guitar pedal (say, a looper) to a keyboard with an aux input/output? How would that work?
  5. Anyone know where I could find the newer version of this song? I know he posted links before but the one's a vgmix link and the sectionz link he posted earlier just redirects to facebook.
