Choosing the perfect keyboard or synthesizer is a big decision. Whether you're buying your first keyboard or adding another instrument to your collection, we're here to help you navigate the vast array of choices you'll find on these pages. To get you started, here are a few points you might want to consider when choosing your ideal keyboard or synthesizer.
A great place to start is piano. It's the ideal instrument for those just beginning their musical journey. Whether you want a acoustic grand piano for your living room, an acoustic upright for your classroom, or a maintenance-free digital piano for your house of worship, Sweetwater can hook you up with the right instrument for your needs.
If you're into EDM or vintage synth-pop, you'll be needing a synthesizer. The first consideration would be polyphony. Classic monophonic subtractive synthesizers can only play one note at a time, making them a natural for fat synth basses and searing leads. A few synths are duophonic, but most modern synths are fully polyphonic, so you can play chords on them. Do you want a synth with a keyboard? If you're already using a MIDI controller with virtual instrument plug-ins, adding a hardware synth module or two to your setup can really expand your sonic horizons. Choose from Eurorack and other modular synthesizers from Moog, Pittsburgh Modular, Doepfer, Waldorf, and Dave Smith Instruments. Into Beat production? Check out a pad controller from Akai Professional, Ableton, or Native Instruments.
Perhaps you're a fan of the legendary Jimmy Smith, who helped popularize the B-3 organ with his unique brand of instrumental soul-jazz fusion. Sweetwater has a comprehensive selection of electric organs from noted manufacturers that include Hammond, Nord, Roland, Crumar, and Yamaha.
Maybe you'd like to "have it all" in one keyboard. You'd be looking at keyboard workstations from Korg, Kurzweil, Yamaha, or Roland. If you want to compose and arrange all within one streamlined keyboard, check out our portable and arranger keyboard category. Yamaha and Casio are the big players in this space.
