Not everyone has the space available in their studio to house a large collection of keyboard synthesizers. For these people, desktop synthesizers are a great option! Desktop models also prove to be a much better option for mobility and are therefore a great option in a live rig. Desktop versions of keyboard synths are essentially exactly the same as the keyboard variety without the actual physical keyboard. You'll typically find all the same parameters and features on a desktop synth as you would on the keyboard, although some desktop versions may scale back on a few physical knobs and sliders to save on space. Sounds Easy has a great range of desktop synths from popular manufacturers like Dave Smith Instruments, Moog Music, Roland, Korg, Elektron, Pittsburgh Modular and Teenage Engineering.
