Arranger keyboard 1994, 5 octaves, with dynamics.
Midi In / Out, Through in connectivity, it also has the OUTPUT L (Mono) R, sustain pedal input, Headphone out, floppy drive. No sound can be edited.
241 sounds and 56 styles. Reverb and Chorus effects.
No séquenseur. Recording a track directly on disk.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple yes.
The manual is as clear as those of the E-series.

OVERALL OPINION

I did not. I have his full notice on the other hand. He was in line with:

E-16,
E-36,
E-56,
E-86

He is the identical twin of E-36. On the latter, the builders had left the track for a floppy drive that it was like. This floppy drive has appeared on the E-66. on the other hand, they removed the card reader. For both, you have to go on E-68. In addition to the E-66, they removed a bank styles, those simplified.
No pitch wheel, not user programs, not séquenseur, no designer styles, no LED display. F sold 10,500 TTC at the time more expensive than E-56, they just did not care in the world. All because, as the floppy drive accepts the styles created by the E-86, the styles available on diskette, the SMF format. Not me, I would recommend the E-56 or E-68.

The preferred feature? Ah, well that's the magic I would say Roland! The quality of sounds, styles, excessive wealth at that level, and good setup by the "Keyboard Mode", the same as the available E-36.
