I love all kinds of music, but the truth is I'm not really into virtuosity except when it comes to guitar players (because I am one). I can tell a
good player on any instrument, but — pianists excepted — one competent keyboard player is mostly as good to me as another. The thing about
electronic instruments is that the sound is all in the instrument, not the player.
It seems to me that keyboard players exercise their taste, imagination and feeling more on the abstract elements of elements of music
choice (if one is improvising), timing and phrasing — rather than on the physical instrument. You can achieve a personal style
electronic keyboard, but I don't think you can really get a personal sound
out of them. As Noel Gallagher — heh — said, it's not really
Liam Howlett's sound, it belongs to Mr Yamamoto in Japan who designed the synth.
Wait, though, did I mention Liam Howlett? Now there's
a synth player. Though that's a poor and rather inaccurate description of what he did in
