Return of the Keytar

Post by kaimerra »

The next big thing I'm saving for to add to my collection of things that make noise is a.......KEYTAR! 8)

Can't wait to rock the dorkiest axe this side of the missisippi! It doesn't say specifically on the site, but I would hope its USB 1.0 and therefore will work as a midi controller for my laptop and all its 64Studio goodness.

Gives me terrible "Modern Talking" memories :-) But considering the amount of synthetic music today (just a statement, no value attached) this thing cuold become quite popular again. If it weren't so dorky...
Edit: It should be USB 1.1 compliant, just about everything is, and appear as a midi interface in alsa.
