I have been using computers for keyboard rigs so long that I am sadly uninformed on the current go-to hardware.
I have a player coming in for a gig. He's doing a general keyboards sort of musical part, and has done this musical before on his RD-700. Whatever sound-splitting, keyboard layout, sound set, etc., that an RD-700 possesses worked out for him.
I thought his personal keyboard would be available for rental, and we could have him bring it. This turned out not to be the case. So I need to budget and purchase a hardware/stage keyboard for the production.
Could you guys who use hardware keyboards for this kind of purpose on a regular basis let me know what you think the best price/performance/functionality keyboard would be? Is the RD-700 best-of-class for that type of board? Please let me know if there are others I should seriously consider. Many thanks.
