I'd like to learn but I don't know where to start and have never played piano or any kind of keyboard before. I have enough money for a microKorg. Would that work okay? I'd like to play multiple genres like metalcore (Attack Attack, Asking Alexandria) amd electronica. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance

There are a TON of free VST (virtual studio technology) synthesizers out there that replicate a lot of the famous synths you hear on a lot of recordings these days (Roland Juno, Moog Minimoog, etc). In my opinion, I would hold off on buying a MicroKorg, and maybe look into getting a small MIDI Keyboard off of eBay or something. Depending on what you want you could get a nice 25 key controller like the Akai MPK25 or M-Audio Axiom (the Axioms are even cheaper than the Akais and the pads are a little easier on your fingers), which has all you need for fiddling around with synth parameters and such.
Ideally, though, nothing beats a good hardware synth, IMO! Especially if it's an analog synth.
