have synth - will travel

so my job takes me around the USA. a lot. i am away from my studio for, sometimes, a couple of weeks, and i always eventually find myself needing a "fix". i would love to hear recommendations on hardware that is very portable. it does not need a sequencer, as i have my laptop with me when i travel. ...

thanks all. $750 seemed a bit much to me, but i just wanted to make sure. thanks, green, for the in-depth. i actually go over synths pretty well before i buy. the keyboard is not as much of an issue to me as i use the M1 and Juno-2 as my controllers for almost all my gear. i will check it out and ma...
