I've currently only got a Diamond Monster Sound soundcard which does a good job for the money (£30). I've also got an Evolution MK-249C USB MIDI keyboard/controller, which I can highly recommend. It is well made, and has a good feel to it, compared to other's I've tried which felt very cheap and flimsy. The keys are nicely weighted, and the layout of the buttons/sliders/knobs is good. For sequencing I'm using Cakewalk Sonar. I've never used any other sequencers, as Sonar does everything I want it to do, and in my opinion, is easy to use. I'm thinking of upgrading the good old soundcard to an external synth. A friend of mine has a Korg Triton, and swears by it. I think it is a very good synth, but it's a bit out of my price range though so I'm looking for a cheaper alternative. What's would you recommend? I've got around £500 to spend. Is this enough to get me a reasonable setup? Any advice would be appreciated.
