Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
It's my brother's birthday tomorrow, and I want to buy him a synthesizer keyboard for various reasons. I have no doubt he'll love it.
The only question is, I have no idea what to look for in a synthesizer. If possible I'd like a wide range of effects as well as a full keyboard, hopefully for a cost of less than $500. Some good integration with the PC as well as a way to play it standalone would be awesome also.
I'm going to go to some music stores tomorrow to have a look, but in the mean time, does anybody have any guidance towards good brands or if this type of thing is within my price range? I know things about guitars and pianos and such, but know nothing of the keyboard/synthesizer market.
