    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is simple?
    It took me a while to get used to the beast, but it bent nearly everything is all alone.

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    On this side the, Alesis has been very full record, up to provide the keyboard with two-sided cardboard sheet which summarizes all sounds disonibles (very useful when looking for a specific sound)

    Editing sounds and effects is easy?
    There he also he'll take some time to familiarize yourself, but you can set all parameters for each channel.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds they agree with your style of music?
    I wanted a keyboard that can get the maximum possible sounds. I'm not disappointed, but the piano sounds are not very realistic (a little soft, and it sounds too (synhé). The question of the organs and Rhodes are very good. For strings, there is a wide choice, but still here if you are looking for sounds that style beats Hans Zimmer, go your way. For cons, the sounds are breathtaking synths, they're very warm, very complete, and there is a wide choice.

    The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch)?
    It's just settle on a scale of "1-99". For those looking for a good piano touch, it will take some getting used, but overall, it's a very good touch and nice.

    The "Mix" allows you to mix (yes logic as its name suggests ...) really all sounds. It is therefore possible combinations galore, there's something for all tastes. Small flat on the other hand, if you do live, he must pre-register their combinations in advance, because it's a bit boring. A PCMCIA slot that I have yet to be tested to reduce sound card, or just to save these combinations on the cards.
    Noted that there are already 500 sounds MIX already pre set, but we can tweak our turn.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?
    About 1 month

    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    Most Keyboard fairly complete
    Sounds good in general
    Possibilities of combinations useful
    It's Alesis, the quality is there.

    the -: Keyboard I found rather heavy, so if you need transport, prefer a flight case on wheels ^ ^ '
    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    I buy used, almost new, 400 €, I would do this choice of course.
