Technology can do a lot of things over time, and one of its specialties is making stuff smaller and smaller. Case in point: keyboard workstations. There used to be a time, decades ago, when even the simplest studio took a lot of space and equipment to set up. That's not the case anymore - a keyboard workstation is like an entire production studio crammed into a single device. With the ability to work on mixes you've already started on your other gear as well as making new tracks from scratch, these workstations have a ton of versatility to offer.
There are plenty of models to choose from, so don't be afraid to take your time and really think about what you need your keyboard workstation to do for you. For example, if you're looking for an easy-to-use keyboard that you can pack up and transport anywhere, take a look at compact options like the Yamaha MX49 or Korg KROSS 61. These have shortened manuals, which makes them perfect when your priority is portability.
On the other hand, if a full-sized electronic keyboard is what you need, you'll find a great variety of 76 and 88-key workstations here as well. The Korg PA3X76, for instance, is a professional-grade performer with a handy, intuitive touch display that makes all its functions much more accessible than they would be with traditional controls. Or, if you're not planning to settle for anything less than a full 88-key setup, check out some extended models like the Kurzweil PC3K8 and Yamaha Motif XF8.
No matter your musical style, there's a keyboard workstation ready to take it on. It's never been easier to put together a studio than it is with one of these - especially considering that they can do so much, you won't need a whole lot of other components in the first place.
