Purchased primarily for his touch and 76 keys (88 not in my small space), the connection is basic (midi in out thru, no usb .. too old for that), but what is there (although support a sustain pedal type continuous input for expression pedal still lacking a bit)

UTILIZATION

The feel of this keyboard is clearly his main argument: it was not at all the feel of a real piano but let's be clear piano is not my first instrument and so it does not shock me: With this hit, j 'manages to put the expressiveness and passing grades that I want, the game provides fun really, nothing to do with what is proposed in light touch or so-called semi-weighted keyboard masters of the recent below 88 where...…

UTILIZATION

The feel of this keyboard is clearly his main argument: it was not at all the feel of a real piano but let's be clear piano is not my first instrument and so it does not shock me: With this hit, j 'manages to put the expressiveness and passing grades that I want, the game provides fun really, nothing to do with what is proposed in light touch or so-called semi-weighted keyboard masters of the recent below 88 where keys is desperately plastic and frustrating for a game piano.
At the same time, the touch is not too hard to be completely inappropriate for a game like organ or synthesizer, said that given the choice, I prefer to reserve its parts to a master keyboard touch more synth.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 or 5 years, no crashes, no worries, no need revision. I reserve mainly to play piano with Pianoteq behind it is a treat, its only limitation is the almost total absence of knob, there is just one slider, easy to program and certainly two modulations but it is light to drive VSTis without the computer next to it. FOr those uses, I took another master keyboard, no way to replace it unless you have room for a good digital piano 88 keys and even in this case, I would keep happy to live because it also has the advantage of not being very heavy.

If you find secondhand around a hundred dollars and for any reason you want a proper touch without being able to take a nice big 88 keys midi controller or digital piano, roland A-30 this is perfect if you need knobs, better to take something else or provide a control surface side. FOr the absolute realism of the piano, not support a sustain pedal type is still a bit annoying too.

J'apprcie particulirement efficacitpoids report.
Is not its strong dmontrer.
I regret the absence of a connection for volume or expression pedals.
His successors (33 and 37) still do not have the wheels for pitch and modulation, which is a pity IMHO.

UTILIZATION

The touch is perfect for me, once the right VLOC program.
Gnrale configuration is very simple, and select the MIDI channels or patches.
The manual provides a grip fairly quickly and efficiently.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years.
I keep it because of the feel and weight.
I worked on many midi keyboards but the two qualities mentioned above are quite rare.
The report qualitprix is ​​good.

I think with the exprience, I would do this choice, not without a second keyboard matre which has aftertouch as well as wheels, which are more appropriate for me CONTRL Real Time el.

OVERALL OPINION

You tell me that perhaps this model no longer available, but replaced by the A-33, is outdated, nerdy etc ... but me, I'm happy.

Hammer action keyboard (very nice under the fingers), 6 and a half octaves, Roland combining typical wheel and Aftertouch Pitch, simple design and smooth.
It is splitable into two parts and function "layer" to play two sounds simultaneously, there is almost nothing to envy an Elton John being lost in the spotlight, in his infinite ballads ...
And as I bought used 2 years ago, I invested as 1600 F. Not much for what it gives. ROLAND Bravo. …
