If you are unsure about what lon can get with these machines, I invite you cost the debut album of singer Malagasy Hanitra Ranaivo, this disc has t in ten days, in a small house Antananarivo Madagascar, on the system Roland VS 1680.

It is today distributed in fifty countries and obtained in Denmark, for his technical and artistic quality the same price as two albums produced by the record company Sony.

For the record vendor mavait say the VS 1680, CTAIT well to make good model. There are in France and in the West gnral a standard problem with the hardware, it looks like all dpends him, the music goes into the background, plug your guitar on this type of device and try to make it sound without artifice with just your fingers.
If you do not succeed you must understand that it is time for you to hide of stopping your guitar derrire 2000 Euros

People are still hiding their brand derrire rope, mdiator, it seems that music is a sport mcanique.

Again listen this album, most musicians who participated in Malagasy does not personally possdent same instrument.
