List of 37-key keyboards and synths here

Post by shinysign » Sat Nov 29, 2008 3:25 am

Hello, I wanted to start a list of 37 key keyboards and synthesizers, old and new, just for fun and because I am curious how many are out there. I think 37 key synths can pack a nice punch, and are nice and portable, I only know a few of the newer ones, there must be many more. Doesn't have to be 37 keys, just keyboards with a much smaller than full size keyboard, such as less than 52 keys.

Alesis Ion* edit: I meant Alesis Micron

That's true, the 37 key was more popular with the early analog synths, in fact a lot of the modern 37 key ones are meant to emulate the early ones. I personally love 37 and 52 key synths, I don't need that many octaves, especially live. Just give me an octave up and down button lol.

waldorf microq keyboard
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

Some of you twats can't count for s**t. Hope you don't have jobs that society depends on, like ball bearing fabrication and prison warden.
Brains can be used like a "stress ball," but only once.
