It probably dates me to ask for recommendations for a synthesizer. But that's basically what I'm after. A second keyboard mainly for my pops concerts, that would have a fairly comprehensive range of sounds. So for instance, if I want a theremin sound for Good Vibrations at my Beach Party concert this year, or that synth solo for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun for an 80s show, or Here Comes the Sun, or whatever. I need something that not only can play some of the classic synthesizer patches, but also has good samples of Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, string pads, etc. We could either get an actual keyboard that has these capabilities, or an iPad app and a decent 4 octave keyboard controller. I just haven't been in the market for keyboards lately and want to know what my best options might be.
