    I wouldn't have anything to contirbute but I might surf it occasionally. Would it be different/better than vintage synth timeline? http://www.vintagesynth.com/timeline/

      Yes. Imagine having every model keyboard possible in a column on the left, and then colums for features like # of keys, dimensions, after-touch and so on in more colums. The chart would tell you at a glance which boards have which features. You would also be able to run searches. For example, you could look for every 88 key, weighted keyboard with user assignable controls under 30 LBS.

        will it be run via a database so we can for example filter results for only analogue monosynths?

            That is the idea. I would love a site like this to browse on, but would people support it is the question.

              I would absolutely use that sort of site!

                It would be a great idea - if important information was included. People have different ideas of what's important though.

                    I think this might be difficult. You would definitely have to have the ability to add bullet points of text to be able to explain features, since not everything can be explained with only a table/list of parameters.



                    Two quick examples:



                    1. Sound ROM

                    Workstations sometimes have stored samples of various instruments, and the size of the "Sound ROM" could be a comparative parameter. However, some keyboards would have all Sound ROM dedicated to piano sounds, while workstations will have a hundreds of different instruments.



                    2. Keyboard action

                    You could have a parameters "no. of keys" and "action type" (piano, synth) but this might miss the quality of the action. Lower end keyboards have cheap actions/keybeds, while the pro keyboards have quality actions.

                        Personally, I have passed beyond my "specs are what's important" phase. I'd much rather have a limited board that does a few things well and fits my notion of logical operation, than a do-everything-but-impossible-to-bond-with board.

                          Agreed. Besides, a chart with specs still doesn't say anything about the sound of a board. I'd much rather support a sound comparison. Say, raw waveforms with/without filters or something.

                            I'm with you. But some boards miss that one obvious thing. Like no expression pedal input on a Juno DI, or no reverb on an Electro 2.
