Small keyboard to pair with Rhodes?
« on: October 10, 2018, 06:48:47 PM »
I've been looking at something small to throw on top of my Rhodes.  Either something for lead or bass.  Maybe Synth.  I just play for fun and enjoy neo-soul.  Want something affordable, maybe two octaves.  Any ideas?

I have a lot of love for my Korg R3.

Ended up ordering a Roland SE-02 with the mini keyboard attachment.  I figured analog would be more fun

 I usually have a Moog Sub37 or a Nord Electro on top of the Rhodes.  Neither is particularly affordable mind you but they’re both superb at what they do...  I had a Yamaha MX-something for a while which was 6X cheaper,  more portable and more flexible than either of those - and sounded brilliant - but the action was so flimsy I sold it before I started snapping keys.
