    i am gonna buy a midi keyboard for my home studio in the price range of 300$ i really love the Grand piano sound, variations of piano sounds, organs, pads and want also to work with it on software synths such as Absynth. also i want it to be good enough to use on stage concerts.

    A couple of available keyboards i saw in the market are
    1 yamaha psr 295 250 $
    2 casio ctk 551

    didn't check how they sound, i would when i am gonna buy it.

    some basic features i would like are
    key sensitivity control
    mod wheel

    only you can decide that bit

    just about any modern keyboard is gong to have the midi implementation you need for the software synths

    beware the Home Keybpards as their implementation can be less than standard and very frustrating.

    check out the Maudio key controlers...they are great...and can control some plugins parameters with the knobs... :cool:

    ok :lol:
    i would check if i can find this brand around here , their are just a couple of shops in the city that has some good quality products but only of the brand ROLAND,CASIO,YAMAHA and KORG, its hard to find a midi cable for a sound card here, so you can imagine.

    please do tell me if any of the above brands have a gear that has really good sound quality for my 300$.
    thanks for the replies guys.
