My brother and I are starting a band and we plan to use guitar, synthesizers, laptops with programmed music on Logic, and I have a few questions concerning the set up of the various aspects. I have no real knowledge of how to do this. Mainly I would just like a list of any equipment that I would need for live performing and what kind of synthesizers are the best and most affordable. Any help would be nice, thanks in advance.

The type of music and what you plan to use the synth for will make a bigdifference in what you should get. Can you give any more info on the style of music and how you plan on using the synth?

Well it is sort of an electro-folk project. I plan on using the software instruments and a midi keyboard and then an analog synth I suppose.

If you want to go analog, then I recommend checking your local used classifieds (craigslist or kijiji). You will be able to find a true analog synth for less than most new ones. When you see something in your price range, check on youtube for demo videos. There are tons for every classic synth. That will give you a good idea of how it sounds.

Thanks. I was also wondering what type of sound equipment I would need to get to project the sound from the programmed music on my laptop in a live setting.
