Following more than a decade of use of the Roland E-16 I replaced DCID because despite the sounds of good quality trs combines simple operation, the keyboard no longer allows me to evolve because it is not configurable and do not possdant squenceur.
So I pass the MS-55, one week APRS hardue s'avre learning an instrument full trs for its price. First of all, the sounds are still thousands of excellent craftsmanship with varieties of piano, guitars, horns galore. Styles are also trs Varis and multiple functionalities are really apprciables whether for electronic or traditional music.
Nanmoins are some paramtrages dlicats obtain:
1. It is impossible to share the keyboard to play two instruments separately (parts Upper / lower) when one wishes to live a squence complter reproduced by twelve o'clock the keyboard. The trick is to configure and save a piece corresponding to the user program and load you load the APRS squence noon in the internal memory squenceur.
2. when choosing a sound, keyboard, he shall decide the same effect and the indoor variation of the selected bank. For example, if you choose a classic electric guitar (bank A46), the keyboard sends us on sixime variation of this sound with a delay effect forcment not wish.
So two points that bothers me a bit but you get done.

Apart from these two points, I find that this keyboard has that quality:
Squenceur mode is basic with few features twelve o'clock edition but just the basics when you download any midis on the internet and you want to reproduce and arrange with an INTERPRETATION Personal.
The multiple functions are quite smashing DJ trs and friendly when you want to improvise in techno and his cousins. We will suprend lcher for long minutes.
The infrared D-Beam is fun to use with trs diffrent factory functions.


I just acqurir this keyboard in July so I am far from having been around but I finally beginning to understand because it requires all the same time to adapt.
From the point of view qualitprix I find really top. must say that I purchased second-hand (almost new) for less than half its original price. (An advertisement on Audiofanzine for that matter)
If c'tait again? Without hsiter. Both solo and with a group this keyboard gives me more in my indniable INTERPRETATION.
