Anyone here plays the piano? Or synths.

    I don't recall people posting piano or keyboard covers and stuff on this forum so I guess it's a good idea making a piano thread.

    I wonder how many here do, maybe post clips or ideas in this thread.

    I do! :headbang: Though generally people aren't very impressed with keyboards so I usually just do guitar/vocal stuff. I also have a hard time recording MIDI cause it never feels right for some reason... So I usually just go audio out of my korg M50

    In this (original) song I play a few keyboard parts. I recorded them at the same time with video and made a little play through just for fun.

    Cover of a symphony x tune where I did everything.. I played all the keys live here, too. I also had to program the drums which was a HUGE pain in the ass and I will never put myself through that again.

    That's amazing, how long have you been playing? I guess that the midi feel is because of some added latency?

    I'm kinda embarrased of posting a clip because I just tested the sounds of my yamaha s500 through my pc speakers and they are god awful and I haven't looked cool sounding vsts.

    Thanks!
    I don't know. I picked up keys in middle school but never learned to read music.
    Sonar X1 (the daw I use) comes with dimension pro which has some pretty neat synths actually.

    Adon is apparently a gun. Everyone should check out his work with Ghost Ship Octavius to see how good his vocals are, on top of his bass, keys and guitar playing haha.

    I'm hoping to learn, actually. Just this morning bought a 61key keyboard controller off ebay. Been wanting to get one for years, but i've been putting it off to buy more essential things, but I finally got round to getting one. I'm hoping it will help me with composing in a different way to how I usually go about it. Also, no more painstaking writing in MIDI by mouse/computer keyboard, I'll be able to just play it on the keyboard controller, saving time, and resulting in a more natural 'played live' feel (once I've practiced a bit).

    Here's a video from a few years ago. My chops aren't quite up to that level these days, and unfortunately I don't have a lot of time [motivation] to get them back lately.
