Value For Money : Excellent
88 notes
sound:
12 basic sounds: pianos, pianos elecriques, organ, string, two bass sounds
plus 2 banks of 12 combinations of the 12 sounds.
opportunity to play in "dual" (two layered sounds)
or split (keyboard cut in 2)
we can transpose the two sounds independently and make the tuning end well.
great touch, excellent sound quality and robustness to meet you.
Effects (level adjustable)
reverb (room, stage, hall) and modulation (chorus, synphnique, tremolo)
tuning sounds like hardness for E-piano.
Excellent keyboard I keep it!

UTILIZATION

Super heavy touch very close to a real piano
easy access to the parameters
+ simple midi channels also can assign controllers to MIDI:
2 controllers:
A right to the modulation level (in addition to bend)
and a knob in the center
For example if you connect the P200 to a PC with software for MIDI and a VST-plugin effect (a distortion or any other) you can assign the controller to vary the effect.
In short everything is simple and everything works perfectly.

for the manual I did not read nearly so simple to use.

SOUNDS

Sons pianos: excellent (especially the first)
E-piano are: same
organs are well but it's not worth a hammond!
Expression is also very good sometimes a little "hard"

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 10 years and I keep it!
is certainly a little cooler than a real piano but the integrated speakers are relatively strong and of good quality (I also used to bring out the sound of my electric guitar through a PC case + USB + direct simulation software M-Audio and guitar to play at home is the top)
at the time was the best value I think (now I'm not sure I did not follow market trends)

With experience I will redeem this model eyes closed.
