This rack is a marvel ... All features and outputs that can RVer a studio musician or scne gathered ... hand may be (but it gets really challenging the) lack of MIDI (adj y'en two, but we quickly want to Bracher above all MIDI devices at the same time like a, just to see). The software that comes with the rack tlchargeable is also trs cool - a perfect rplique virtual rack that quickly having to touch the buttons - from a small gap in a backup g nrale which is possible only after many, many efforts.
The 8 assignable audio outputs are extra, especially since we can assign recreational effects supplmentaires ... IDAL when utlise return on scne!

UTILIZATION

If we know Roland well, nothing will be easier ... APRS a little time getting started, a go himself. Systm rpartition of the notches is fairly intuitive and shortcut buttons allow the right to change the midi track without having to go through the whole machine in reverse.
The manual is clear trs - as often with Roland - even in English.
sition of the sound, however, can be a bit tedious because rvler sub-sub menus on the screen of this focntionnalit. With a little Entran, a motion.
Very practical too: the patch finder - can be used as a mode patch mode only performance ... soon have to learn the sound of your numro prfres by heart ... just choose one of the CATEGORY and browse by type of instrument.

SOUNDS

Sounds basic's quite impressive, but the addition of cards s'avrera essential if you are looking for any great finesse. The original pianos are correct, the strings also. The brass sounds are same Gaux them at Roland ... ethnic sounds, however, still again - even on memory cards. There are at least pleased the best moments of Jupiters!

OVERALL OPINION

Personally, I use 5080 as the studio for scne, and I'm satisfied 95% ... single large default for scne, rponse time a program change. But this is largely compensated by the ACCS to give quick and settings by shortcut buttons.

A must, which will certainly become a classic in a few years. If you have one, do not claim it!
