88 Keys to feel "heavy" we should no longer qualify for semi-heavy). Without hammers.
Warning! No portamento
The characteristics are the product details.
Configuration is very simple.
I appreciated the many MIDI out (Too bad all the synths do not generalize this characteristic there because we like to control lots of devices).
Despite the few controls and buttons, the T1 is very intuitive and programming sounds is easy.
The manuals are really well done and clear. It's pretty idiot-proof, compared to Roland
The sounds are very distinctive. They stem from the m1 and we recognize from the first notes that grain typical digital in late 1980 early 1990.
I do not like the masses, but I used this keyboard master more keyboard than anything else.
Very good on the sounds of wind (except sax).
The flutes, oboe, oboe etc. sound great.
The synth bass is not bad, although the acoustics are poor.
For groundwater, even if it's not bad, it is still very far from the superiority of Roland.
The acoustic pianos, although typical, are unbearable to my ears.
Strong-side electric pianos though. The rhodes sound superbly.
We can also make sharp leads.
Quality aftertouch is exceptional!
This is my second T1.
It was my first 88 keys.
I had some other synths before, how analog to digital.
GEM WS1, Roland JD-800, Siel Opera 6, Roland Super JX ...
I appreciate the quality of the keyboard, which is very good.
The sounds are very distinctive. I never liked the sound of their Korg digital age (except the MS2000 and Z1).
Try before you adopt because you love it or hate it. There are no half measures.
I recently replaced by an XV-88, because I wanted to change to a keyboard with mechanical hammers, and his return to Roland, I still prefer.
I find a little of its premium OCCAZ, but with experience, it is a choice not to be overlooked.
For those seeking a master keyboard with a pretty face, it fulfills its function. Attention to the weight anyway. It is a sacred piece of furniture!
