Roland RD-700SX : alan24's user review

Many functions on this piano / keyboard master opulent presentation. We face a real piano, digital and completely different approach must be an organ or an arranger: only by touch ... already!
This is not a truism, but it must think differently ... and play to be convinced!

UTILIZATION

I just bought this beautiful digital piano and it gives me much satisfaction. on the other hand, there are additional functions which could have happened as the V-Link: you need to know if we made music or show biz.
The handling of presets with the "cursor" is not always easy, and we should not lose sight of if one is on the rhythms, the arpeggiator, or upper and lower, otherwise it is completely re- and find the way, the correct preset!
The rhythms are very "trendy", so beware if you find yourself at a cocktail party or a group of grandpas: the bunch, it's going!
I will add a very interesting feature: the rotation of the leslie adjustable speed and intensity of the tweeter and woofer independently, and the offset of the acceleration of one and another. Final velocity to adjust as well. This function seems crucial to me because often the Leslie artificial turn too fast compared to the real.
The keyboard is excellent, fluid compared to real pianos "wooden Reriti". This is the best touch on which I have ever play so far. For stories of forearm muscle fatigue: The question is what we want: the marshmallow cornflakes or concrete

SOUNDS

With pianos, organs, pads, and voice / synth, found his life in warm tones, haunting. It will surprise with the tangerine Dream as well as with Rhoda Scott. That said, everything is very well made and it is understood that Roland could not help but return to the sounds of their library going nuts everywhere: the koto limit inspiration as "explosion" of the rest: y ' over 200 who are being exploited exceptionally motivated. You take an arranger or expander 15 years ago, we find that the tessitura of no interest, let alone batterie.Bon kits, for marketing, Roland felt better to provide extensions of piano, orchestras etc ... € 330 for room.
It lacks a few buttons for quick access to functions, because the "center cursor" limits the speed of access.

OVERALL OPINION

Despite these shortcomings, not everything can be perfect, the RD 700 Sx remains a key outstanding as the richness of its stamps by his touch. That said, too, for transport, it is not easy to find the "fly" adapted, and given the size of the vehicle and its weight, we must invest it better and safer: I know something to be taken under the right arm to go up three floors: it is dangerous and stupid! choose a keyboard according to the width of the floor!
