    That says it all down

    UTILIZATION

    C personal touch that made me look at the cot of the piano numrique over competitors ... c trs touch 'hard' and I like to strengthen your fingers! :-)

    Otherwise the use is simple not need the record which is otherwise clear trs!

    SOUNDS

    Piano sound good and satisfactory ... However, I prefer the more percussive sounds in the Kurzweil as the acute ... good but not c the same budget either!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years and am satisfied trs! That's what I was looking for a good sound, good touch and no-brainer in terms of use! Bravo Roland for simplicity and efficiency!

    Keyboard 88 keys, touch heavy, 24 sounds available (including five pianos)
    Even in him, this keyboard is simple, solid, not "too" heavy (a vaingtaine pounds): all I asked was a piano scne

    UTILIZATION

    The touch is heavy and enjoyable, 3-way adjustable diffrent (Heavy, Normal, Light).
    Having used a Petrof fourth tail, I use it in heavy and still a bit lightweight but hey .. it's not like either! Trs's good in any case this cot!

    Gnrale configuration is very simple, 1 hour test with no manual was enough to go around the available options .. can hardly be easier!

    I have yet to test the MIDI plain, but I found no problem until the notorious ..

    I have yet to test the MIDI plain, but I found no problem until the notorious ..

    SOUNDS

    The are are super good!
    The pianos, rhodes and bass is great (especially the piano base)! The vibraphone, electric piano and synth pad is very nice too, jazz scat are terrible! The strings, the clavcins and chorus are good ... noise level, so it impecaple ..
    on the other hand, nothing ditable, apart from the brilliance, but hey it's not the function of this type of keyboard!

    The reverb is good quality trs, like the chorus.

    I use it almost exclusively for piano (that's cell that I bought it too) that are powerful and trsralistes => bright, it makes you want to CRER, one is quickly hours to compose, Stereo headphones over their ears!
    On scne is paronychia, attention qd even a foot of prvoir stable enough as it is long and feel a heavy push push hard enough on the keyboard ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought used two months ago for just over 600? (I had a stroke of luck), I love it and it is not prs leave me!
    I use it for my components and scne with my group, in a style elctro / jazz / rock, and it satisfies me perfectly! J'apprcie particularly the piano sound and touch ..
    Trs good value / quality OCCAZ price, it is found in around 700 gnral? ... is that price is a bargain for trs who cheche scne a good piano or a good master keyboard!
    I would do without this choice hsiter

    No MIDI THROUGH -1

    UTILIZATION

    The keys may be heavier -1
    trs but the touch is good.
    background noise for recording clearly noticeable if the volume gnral keyboard Exceeds half.
    apart from recording the sound is fine.

    SOUNDS

    The sound of a concert piano is amazing and far surpasses many more expensive keyboards numriques.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 4 or 5 years .. it sound!

    I only use it as a master controller to send MIDI notes to my sequencer, and it does the job very well. Satisfied!

    Price paid

    $899

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use. It only has a few buttons on its panel. Plug and control

    I never took the RD-150 to any concert but it seems like it would be fine on a stage. The quality is much better than Studiologic's (Fatar) controllers by far.

    SOUNDS

    Excellent sounds though we arent talking about a synth or a sound module here but a master keyboard. Classic pianos, basses and other basic sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Love it, its big, does the job.

    Nothing missing as such, but now the price has fallen I'd be inclined to go with the better specced and sampling XV 5080

    Price paid

    £1300

    UTILIZATION

    I have had no problems and I'm not all that techie. The manual is not bad, and being able to search for sounds by genre is useful, as is the considerable number of buttons, allowing you to access each part individually.

    I have had no problems, but have not taken it gigging.

    SOUNDS

    Unexpanded, it is a very good all round palette of sounds. Useful for building up tracks, but none of the sounds really jump out as completely unique however good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I would certainly miss not having it around. Currently it is used for the main part of most of my songs, but these parts generally need replacing with real synths and live basses. If it was stolen or broken, I would buy the 5080 to replace it. This series of sound modules is found in many studios, and it's easy to see why - it is a staple for making songs.

    There are enough features to begin learning how to produce music and gain fundermentals in theory of composition, shame you can load samples onto it like the MC-505 and shame about the sequencer

    Price paid

    £150 (£300ish?)

    UTILIZATION

    Definatly the worst thing about this product. At first beginers glance it looks like its got loads of buttons, but as you learn to use it you realise that there isnt enough, theres far to many buttons that have about 5 different functions that you have to use in different combinations, hard to remember them all which makes using it time consuming (using the manuall every 2 minutes). The sequencer is very limeted therefore I now only use this as a sou…

The sequencer is very limeted therefore I now only use this as a sound module with Cubase which it dose very well

    SOUNDS

    I belive the sounds are of good quality, some say there awfull, but it's how you use them, a bit of effects, EQing and Compresion (as with anything) and there great. the effects are a bit dogy but OK. Better to use plug-ins and external sequencer

    OVERALL OPINION

    Fair play, It built like a tank, its six years old and all the buttons have been hammerd so many times from just using it and realtime jammin (early days) but there all still working fine, and the jog wheel, must have been turned millions of times

    Great to learn fundumentals, shame about utterly crap sequencer, good fun in realtime and superb as a sound module

    It got a ALOT of samples onboard... and a whole bunch of effects. This module is enough to make some really good music. 64 voices, 16parts, 8 slots for expansion cards (SR-JV-cards).

    Price paid

    $1000

    UTILIZATION

    It is pretty easy to use. Add a couple of samples and effects to a patch and save it in the user-bank. Then it's very easy to access it from any sequenser.. most of that work is automatic (You have to setup some stuff on the JV-1080). There are alot of patch-name-lists (+studio module for cubase users) on the net if you want to use the factory patches.. they are very useable (but therefor many uses them).

    It feels like it can take some crap without complaining... never tried though..

    SOUNDS

    It got high quality samples. You can layer samples to make new sounds.. add effects.. play around. It really sounds great. The expansion boards (JV-SR-cards) adds extra samples and patches that mostly sound really nice. I almost only use the sounds as background stuff.. hardly ever any sounds from it for main melodies and stuff.. got other stuff for that. I use this module to build up some more atmosphere to my music.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It does what you tell it to. Very good midi (alot easier to control than JV-1080.. but some says it's not as tight as the JV-1080.. never noticed any _obvious_ timing-diff.. never used it for drums and stuff like that).. I really recommend this one if you need a good soundsource.. even if i prefer samplers more nowadays.. still got 2 of theese JV's + a bunch of expansion cards (had 8 different cards)

    This is a simple piece of gear. It has a very nice hammer-mechanism piano keyboard, a few sounds, midi connection, basic sequencer.

    $800

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use. Hold 2 preset buttons to layer 2 sounds, etc.

    I've had the RD-150 for 3 years and had no problems with it.

    SOUNDS

    The RD-150 has only a few presets available, namely a couple of pianos, rhodes, strings, etc. The main piano and rhodes are the ones I use all the time, although I mainly use the RD-150 as a MIDI controller.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not feel super attached to it, although it is a nice controller and digital piano.
