What are the best synthesizers for beginners? Well, you may be expecting me to come up with a big list of different synthesizers to give you lots to choose from. Actually, I’m not going to do that. Instead, I am just going to make two possible recommendations, depending on what you want to use it for.
If you are looking for a physical synth that you can jump right into and make really cool sounds with straight out of the box, the MicroKorg is a great choice. Yes, there are settings and controls to learn how to use, but once you watch one or two tutorial videos like the one below, you will soon pick it up:
Yes, my second synthesizer recommendation is actually a software program. If you are less concerned with live performance and more interested in creating whole pieces of music, my advice is to go the software route. I personally use Reason for making all of my own music.
It may look overwhelmingly complicated when you see all the things it can do, but when it comes down to it, it’s actually pretty easy to start using it. All you need is a MIDI keyboard, then you can load up some virtual instruments into Reason and start playing. It’s really that simple.
The great thing about Reason is it is so easy to get started, yet it is so expansive and full of possibilities. It is literally a full music studio in software form.
Anyway, I hope you found this helpful. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments section below and I will reply as soon as I can.
All the best,
