The very very good. Excellent synthesizer, robust, versatile and with a keyboard with 88 keys heavy touch that will delight pianists. Many controllers make it very useful on stage (leslie effect, opening resonant filter ...)

The machine from 1999 usb is absent, but focntionne perfectly with a midi / usb adapter. As stated above, it can add a AIEB2 output interface board which adds zm 4 outputs and digital output.
The location of the plug-in cards and the frame of the keyboard entirely metal reinforce the idea of ​​overall strength, the keyboard seemed ultimately indestructible unlike "things-toys-objects obscolescence programmed" (delete as appropriate) of today. In return, the keyboard is a little heavy.

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple when it is limited to presets and performance (also very good). However, even with the manual, the design of new ones and new performance follows a strange and unique to Yamaha that rout at first logic. The passage through the supplied software facilte greatly the task, and then reveals all the guts of the machine.

SOUNDS

Generally, the sound is very good, even today. The pianos are good, the Rhodes and Wurlitzer organs are excellent. Indulgence in brass and sax that should be edited.
Performance (atmosphere) by default are good, but respond to a very specific use. However, the aspects of personalization, when the logic of the machine ranges are enormous. The multiplication of layers and instruments gives amazing and unsuspected results for this kind of machine. Very heavy.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for about 3 years. The hit of the heavy synth and keyboard customization capabilities provide a feeling of play without flaws. The keyboard deserves that one stops a bit on the manual (one week in the bathroom and hop!) To understand all the intricacies, but after it's only happiness! Recommended!
