Some help on a possible new instrument
As you know, it’s not in my style filling PlanetKDE with non-KDE related stuff, but this time I really need some help from the community, as I know that there are some good musicians around you.
I’m about to buy a synthesizer, since we’re adding some electronical influences in our band (we’re mostly playing rock music). So, here it comes. I need something on a decent budget, with good action on the keys (I’m quite choosey as a pianist), and decent piano, strings, and lead sounds (square and sawtooth are the sounds that intrigue me the most at the moment, but I’m opening to a new world in which I’m quite ignorant).
I would use it with piano sounds, and with synth sounds, mostly to harmonize guitar parts (such as solos). I would let you taste a sample of our latest work but it’s still in the studio. Anyway, this synth should be suitable especially for live performances and optionally for composing.
At the moment, my choice for budget and everything is the roland Juno-G. It fits my budget and it looks like it will fit my needs as well.
Here’s the question: any advice on this being a good/not bad/worst ever choice? Any other synths you would recommend me?
