Im about to dive, headfirst, into trying to learn to play the piano through the internet and without a teacher. Synthesia looks perfect for this.
However, I cant quite decide on the best keyboard to buy.
I've all but settled on the M-Audio Keystation 88 ES 88-Key MIDI Controller.
it looked perfect: Cheap, 88 keys, semi-weighted, good reviews, cool add-ons.
my only issue is that i REALLY want to take advantage of the lighted keys option that Synthesia offers, and the M-Audio does not have that option.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a keyboard that is similar to the awesomeness of the M-Audio Keystation, but with lighted keys also? Should I be willing to sacrifice on the other great options like the 88 semi-weighted keys for lighted instead? Im willing to spend a bit more, but not by much.
