Hi all,

recommend me a setup for having fun jamming at home. I currently have an FP-50 which is connected to a decent set of 2.1 PC speakers. I use it mostly for piano improvisations with and without the internal rhythm patterns. That's it. It's not bad but I want more to play around with. I especially hate it that you can't turn off the bass part of the rhythm patterns permanently and that I need to do this every time again.

What do you have for jamming fun? Recommend me what provides you with the most fun, be it another board, external effects, loopers, multitrackers or software or whatever. I play mostly ProgRock, but that's not carved in stone.

Thanks in advance,

If you have, or are willing to get, an iPad, Jammit is a lot of fun. It has original artist track recordings for dozens of different songs with the ability for you to adjust the balance. So you can mute the keyboard tracks and play along with the original bands, or you can mute the other tracks so that you just hear the keyboard (or guitar or whatever). The app comes with transcriptions of the parts in standard notation (also tabs if you get the guitar version of the song). The app is free, but the songs are a few bucks each to download. you can slow down the tempo, do A-B loops, etc. it's pretty nifty. There does seem to be a good smattering of prog rock songs there, lots of Dream Theater songs for example, Yes, Rush, etc...

Anyway, if you get the free ap, it comes bundled with Toto's Rosana so you can try it out and see if it works for you.
