Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum so sorry in advance if I'm supposed to ask this somewhere else, but can anyone identify the synth in this picture? I know it's really crowded, however the buttons look really particular so hopefully someone can help? Thanks in advance!!

It looks really familiar, but I can't place it. Where is that photo from? Who is that in the photo?

At first glance, I was thinking Prophet VS. But after a closer look, that isn't it.

Thanks for your responses! It's Go Ichinose, a Japanese composer from Game Freak! I just wanted to know what he was using, if you remember any help is appreciated! IDK if this helps but this was 2009-2010!

I could swear this is a Casio but after spending the last hour searching for old casio 5 octave keyboard images , I could not find anything identical.

Sorry man, but this picture really isn't enough to go on. All I can see is that it has 5 octaves, 2 or 3 rows of non-membrane buttons, and that it has full sized keys. Other than that,

It could be a home keyboard
It could be a sampler
It could be a compact organ
It could be an arranger
It could be a synthesizer
It could be any of these things from any year up until 2009 as you said, and from any country.

That's hundreds if not thousands of different keyboards.

I've not been able to figure it out either... however after spending some time looking up possibilities and "Go Ichinose" and the way that synth looks it appears to me to be some sort of E piano.

IDK if this helps anyone, but the closest I've gotten to this keyboard is Korg IS 40 or the Yamaha PSR series, they're still not it though. Any ideas? :(

Could you find an email for the chap and ask him?

If you say lots of nice things to him and tell him how much you like him, there's some chance he might reply?

I believe that's not a synth - it's M-Audio ProKeys 88 master keyboard/digital grand

Can't be. Buttons don't match.

Thought the same myself at first.
But upon further inspection, I think he's right.
