Features dj dcrites. For rsumer, it is a Stage of Roland, 88-key hammer bank with classic sounds: piano and EP / Organs good or very good quality and then the rest (tablecloths, guitars, brass) that are unusable on stage (and even less in the studio)
Weight is an asset. For wear Korg Triton Pro X or Rhodes, it is clear that this facilitates dplacement. Finally, count all the same do with this Paris Roubaix RD300 on the luggage rack ...
A good grade because the most imprtant sounds are very good (piano, organ and EP) and the weight is correct.
Honestly, in terms of the use, it does not ask too much. For rsumer I divided into two parts:
1) memorize its presets: yes, you can, but the small screen does not make things easier. In addition, all is not backed up. So we must also memorize some parameters in his head (leslie for example, or the parameters of the second pedal)
2) Contrle in real time: for the equalizer is very good. For faders that are used to split and dual, it is also very convenient to have them on hand. For the rest (cd effects that we would like to add ...), you must enter the menu and remember abbreviations ...
In the end, I always use the same sounds and know my heart rglages by these few sounds. It seems to me simpler than the presets.
For those who want the Controller in ral time and facade, as well as real backup presets, you can trouner to Clavia (2 times more expensive all the same)
Sons of Rhodes piano and organ are at the top.
The keyboard is pleasant: it's good for jazzeux Roland So, we like.
The vlocit is very good (for example with its bibaleloulap cd small voice ragissent according to vlocit and out of DIFFERENT sounds)
The effects will not use. For my part, I have my branch wha and my tremolo on the RD and I do not use internesdu RD300 effects.
For those who want a good course with some big sounds (deu first piano, the three EP and one or two organs) and that a reasonable price, go for it.
For those who want ral time with adjustable presets at top: thank you to contact Clavia
Touch is enjoyable and trs is a product of good quality. It is obvious that this is to compare an acoustic piano in a piano numrique but its product range and price, it is part of the best keyboards available. The configuration possibilities are relatively minimal, but their edition is simple and relevant. The manual is well rdig. no surprises this level
The sound of this keyboard is acceptable for me and for my use (non-professional). While 50% sounds seem to me the gadget, but in regard to three main families of sounds (piano, electric piano, organ), there is (almost) as good surprises. The pianos are particularly successful.
Personally, I immediately find a little electric piano and organ, but it seems to me that these sounds are of good quality trs
Since about 1 month. Trs pleased with this acquisition. APRS trying all models matching this price, it silent clear (at least for me) that Roland MODELS last 2 were part of the trifecta. Although sr, while only a matter of taste. Today (mid-2005), there is no alternative offering tural ahead of the MODELS
88-key keyboard it hammer.
About a hundred sounds are easily accessible. There is also sound and diffrent GM2 drum kit there are some rhythms. It is far from being plthorique but all tones are of high quality.
It's really a keyboard scne East, for example there is nothing prvu to bring the scores, it's a shame, because before you know it by heart even when a lot of read the sheets!
Touch is trs enjoyable and close to a real piano. It is ideal to study. However, if the touch is not bad at all, it is not so raliste than RD700-SX - but it does not exactly boxing in the same CATEGORY. Prfre I dwell on the qualities that made me choose this keyboard:
- Using ultra simple. No need to program the machine, it will pass trs well, everything is intuitive.
- The order felt good: We RULES easily level layer, a legalization two bands will make the brilliant sound of the piano when switching from headphones to the monitor.
- One touch piano to piano rccuprer prfer of a button. This is not a principle gnral, but it rpond required 80% of pianists.
- A box for basic rhythm train home.
Compared to the RD 170, the keys are less plastic look.
The sounds are well trs small but quality in all we preset
- A tail sampled piano on all the notes we feel t he sampled on several levels VLOC. Added the dclinaisons classical piano softer, honky, piano study.
- The Electric Piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer sound! We can play on his sound effects for EP. Only the Clavinet that does not suit me, but it is subjective.
- Organs: zippers are missing ... but they are good.
- And the sounds useful: bass, violins, pads ... It yammer a Voice Ooh wah ... so funny that I want to do a piece just on that basis.
It's all good! Throw anything away!
I just bought it and did not undergo the proof of the concerts. But unless it fails I do not see how I could be the! This keyboard is not a decoy in the sense that it promises nothing gadget and I feel that all the money I invested was used for useful functions and it was just for a excellent quality price. The simplicity is the word for this machine matre completing his contract.
A final word on her weight is a strong marketing argument for this machine. 15 pounds is good, but it is lightweight yet
88-key, normal, so ... Sounds relatively large, for me it is more, since I asked him c'tait primarily to be a piano, because I have a Triton ct more sound banks on my computer ... I would add that if the comment below me regrets the lack of something to ask his scores, I personally rent it. It's a piano scne, I use it for my components, so no partitition and frankly bored trs to have a pice of plastic bte derrire the body of piano, especially for transportation, or the ugly little holes rear mtallique To insert a rod to hold the partitions. Especially a lectern, it's really cheap, if you really need ... Collection's outdoor, this piano is quite an Aesthetics russia (less ugly than the unspeakable faux wood Yamaha Roland ...), so thank you for not inflicting us a.
Touch, if not that of a piano vritable, forcment is close enough to be enjoyable ... If anyone here has attempted on scne to play piano parts on a Korg Triton synth or other without touching the piano, it will be dj frankly delighted with the RD-300SX ... Softer than my upright piano, but enough to afford to play all that can be played on a piano vritable no surprises, and with the same enjoyable feeling of really playing the piano.
Setting simple, fairly intuitive buttons and ... Accs rapid DIFFERENT sounds, nothing wrong.
The manual is sufficient, plus the list of programs ... Given the simplicity of use, I do not see what more.
USB MIDI connectivity, it is convenient ... but hey, we will not make a keyboard-Matra, this is not the goal and there are no knobs for the a, so users are limits, and to play MIDI IN using sounds from the computer much more than OUT, although sr ...
9 I put just one thing: at times, I find the pedals a little erratic ...
As mentioned above, I just wanted a piano, a Korg Triton and I have my computer derrire branch, I do electro rock, so for the sound, I have everything Whereas what I needed UNLESS a piano that sounds really like a piano and not like cardboard ... In addition to my desire for a true piano touch for too many parts mlodiques more and more complicated where the Triton could not follow. And finally, I trs INTERESTED Discoveries sounds, and I soon Intgr certain organs, pianos and electric bills trs my compos ... Although sr, voices, brass and other sounds there are gadgets. But enough trsrussis sounds for the use of this piano is a real pleasure.
I almost bought his release on the market for beginners anne. In all music stores, the c'tait MODEL advised me that, and indeed, have APRS t trs moderately excited about the Yamaha, as much as the level of their overall ugliness , I report the Roland ... without really got to try it. I have no regrets, it is a good instrument trs. 15kg, this is not lightweight, but I do not see how to make a more lightweight 88-key without the ptisse in quality, so rev well, and frankly transportable. It is really compact, convenient for dplacements. On scne, trs well, even in the dark because its ease of use found its rglages quickly, he did so far not to trick jou , and taken on a sound system in concert halls, it sounds really good trs. I do not regret my choice for what I have tried other, I can tell you that nothing in this price (I pay 1200 ... least since I dtaxe live in Switzerland, so I'm shooting to the 1080, I believe) is not my opinion. It's a good bte and I intend to do a pice of the standard central mass of mess that surrounds me live much longer ...
