: Hi. I am a newbi and I am looking into buy a good midi keyboard for song compositions. I have looked into many differnt keyboard and I narrowed my choices to Yamaha DJX and Alesis Qs6.1. Djx cost a lot less than Alesis qs6.1 but I know qs6.1 is more pro-like instrument.
: What I am concering is that I am a beginner and I have never experienced with midi stuff so I am being careful with choosing my first keyboard since these instrument cost not too cheap and I don't really want to waste money.
: Well it seems like DJX cost less than $300 and Qs6.1 cost less than $750 in most place. If I buy DJX then I can get another sampling sound card such as SoundBlaster Live or I can even get cheap module such as Nanosynth.
: So my question is should I buy DJX + some extra stuff such as SB live + module or Should I just buy Qs6.1 alone? I really do not have experience with any instrument so I do not know anything and that's why I am asking.
: All I want to do is to try compose my own songs using computer and keyboard and I really want to buy a keyboard that I can use it for long time.
: Thanks a lot.
The DJX is a neat little keyboard.It offers many options to a newby including 7 seconds of sampling time(but no storage).The DJX is neat in that it has a few realtime knobs and ribbon controller for realtime effects.
The QS6.1 is more of a professional type synth as you can alter your sounds and save them to the memory or Qcards.Also,with the supplied software you can add samples,sounds,and sequences to blank Qcards.The QS6.1 also has expansion series sounds available on Qcards.
I think for just having fun the DJX is really cool,but if you want to get serious I would definately go with the QS6.1
