    Hi,

    I Thought about getting an new hobby because
    I spend a lot time in gaming and getting bored a lot the last time
    so I thought about getting a keyboard ( since I listen to owl city, I thought about it)

    So now I need a keyboard, but I'm just a beginner so I don't want to spend a lot of money
    just around €200,- but I want a keyboard which is able to make difference sound

    So what kind of keyboard should I buy ??

    Already Thanks

    Anyways, I suggest you buy one from KORG, cos IMHO they're the absolute best.

    Start with a tiny Casio just in case you get bored with the idea.

    Yamahas are generally quite good, I own one myself and it's got some nice tunes.

    You need to take it slowly though, it's really hard at first and you need to train your fingers. Afther that it becomes fun.

    If you want something small and affordable: KORG nanoKEY

    It's a keyboard that acts as a MIDI controller via USB. It comes with a code for free download of their M1 Le software that you can use, but you can use other programs as well, such as MIDI-OX (A personal favorite of mine).

    It's fun to mess around with, and since it's relatively small, you can take it anywhere and just mess around with it (If you have a laptop or netbook).
