Hello, I'm a beginner at playing keyboard and I want to buy a new synth for a beginner. I want a synth because I wanna have a wider range of sounds, but nothing too complicated. I saw this synth that looks interesting: http://www.thomann.de/gb/emu_longboard.htm
But people say it's not really good and it's more like a toy.
You can hear it here:

Sadly that's all I can afford, but why do people say bad things about it? Should I get it, I mean I'm a beginner and it sounds ok to me...

Hey, Ice! First of all, welcome to the forum!

My suggestion would be that since you are a beginner, you really want to get something as inexpensive as possible yet gives you the most features for the price.

Is there a music store around you that may have this keyboard in stock so that you can play around with it? If not, I would still go and talk to the keyboards guys there and get their take on your situation and suggestions.

Also, you may want to check out M-Audio. They provide excellent keyboards and synths at great prices. You definitely get more than you pay for with that brand.

Good luck on your search and keep us posted on what you decide!

Hi Ice

I bought Roland Juno Di for around 600 and all things considered I'm happy with it. It has alot of great sythn sounds and it's very easy to use. It's not a sequencer though.

It is also only 12lbs and the construction seems descent. I really couldn't afford anything more though.

Good luck!
