I've posted something on this before but got totally confused so abandoned the idea, however my 15 year old has just put one on his Christmas list.
Ideally, he needs something that he can play with batteries and also plug in, but it must have keys and have in built speakers for jamming along with at home, and the ability to record / loop.
Drum pads would be good, but a decent array of sounds. He would want to be able to use it with Ableton software.
Budget around the £200 - £300 mark, either used or new.
Any advice would be great.
