Well I've done a bit of research and decided to go with the Edirol


This is strictly a keyboard with no on-board synthesis capability.  I
decided on this because last night I went to a friend's place and used
his Evolution 49 key USB keyboard with the amazing software Reason (on
Windows.)  After seeing all that Reason could do I figured I might as
well get a really nice USB MIDI keyboard instead of a mediocre
synthesizer that I could get for the price of the PCR-50.  With
software like Reason (and eventually my BeOS soft synth), I don't
really need the low-quality voices that a cheap synth could provide. 
And right now I certainly don't want to fork out the $2000+ needed for
a nice synth.

BTW, even before I saw Reason I had goals of creating something like
that with the BeOS soft synth I'm working on.  The idea is to have the
actual synthesizers that produce sound be add-ons, so that by default
there would be a standard wavetable synth add-on, but later someone
could add a FM synth or some other kind of synth.  All without having
to modify the core code of the soft synth.  So we will see what happens
with that.

Would anyone be interesting in software like Reason for BeOS?
