    Looking for a keyboard to record music with drum,bass and other synth-key stuf.Also need a line in or mic in to record my guitar sound and put it on the backing track created with keys.I prefer something with good key's and speakers.Then able to get this track to pc or any other media.Idea here is not involve pc and keep everything simple,thanks...

    Korg Kronos is the only option I’m aware of but it’s at least two grand

    Roland FA 06 will do the trick and you can plug your guitar in

    Cheaper than Kronos mind you I prefer Korg

    Sorry guys but they not cheap where i live.Sound quality isn't a issue for me,I want it only for background stuffs when i practice or play around ideas.For final record and mix I prefer use computer but for a day to relax and enjoy music I dont want to deal with any of menus or other tweaking.Looking something around 500$.

    You do have a cheaper option and thats in the IK Multimedia iRig Keys I/O: http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irigkeysio/
    Its a midi keyboard controller and audio interface in one. Comes in 25 or 49 keys.
    I would get the 49 keys one if you want to play more realistic keyboard parts in real time.

    But then again, you will need a PC or a tablet in combo with this keyboard. Sounds like you want a keyboard workstation which are not cheap at all but this keyboard with an iPad / Garageband could be a goer if you already have an ipad.

    Roland Juno G has a ton of great sounds and onboard recording/arranging.

    Thats what i want to avoid - The Computer - I can get good midi key but dont want it realy.
    That look awsome,cant find new but there is many used at very good price.I will look deeply at it thank you so much.

    How about triple play vs keyboard ? I realy don't have time for another instrument.Is very basic keyboard skills better than high guitar skills with triple play ?

    Not very traditional as far as a keyboard, but you could do some very creative recording and mixing with a Teenage Engineering OP-1.
