oldplayer49's review"new to roland g70"

Roland G-70
the sequencer is something like a basic DAW on a computer i haven,t used it yet.Connections are midi,audio in etc.I,m finding it hard to get a memory cartridge that fits in the back.


I haven,t really got round to experimenting with this keyboard yet,i want to wait until i have the time to do so properly.This is the fifth high spec k/board i,ve owned, my experience with it on stage has been very good.Of course once i find out what it can really do,specially with the guitar mode,i will write a more in depth revue.


Roland in my opinion make very good instruments,this one is getting on a bit now but with the upgrade to version 3,the excellent harmoniser,guitar mode,that i have my opinion is still the same.I,ve tried many keyboards in the last 20 years from the first decent yamahas that came out then to the tyros,that i presently own,along with a BK5,psr1500,psr900.

misterpiano's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good WorkStation!"

Roland G-70
Keyboard with multiple sound huge opportunity.
Very good feel, nice.
MIDI connectivity for some handy USB VST via a PC.


Quite complex to use, a reading of the book is important to understand the entire system.


I use it for 3 years now and I plan to sell it despite the "beast" that is!
However, the arranger is heavy to transport.
Too bad this does not have arranger Rhodes sound I like.

heybulldog's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" perfect arranger"

Roland G-70
Arranger with a semi heavy touch (actually a light touch that allows for more expression) and aftertouch


very easy to use and very very full!


I had a G800 before for almost 20 years and then I bought the g70 3 months ago, with 11 piano SRX card and then slap! expressiveness, piano music, vocal effects that fits well with mine (voice) with a Shure beta58, this is really what I wanted.

Jaco61's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Manual Roland G70"

Roland G-70
The sequencer is very pleasant with its disposal various tracks "as in Cubase" (while the Tyros is a list of "vertical", we do not see all the tracks together on the screen unfortunately)


Sorry I do not agree with what has been said about the G70 Manual: for me who have dealt with other manuals (Yamaha Tyros with that I have, Ketron SD5 with I also has), I could compare and I think the G70 Manual is the one that is more explicit, more clear, more educational (if you spend a little time) and with whom I able to go to every corner of the machine, while I stayed on my hunger with manuals Tyros and Ketron!


I use it for more than 10 years and I am always happy on stage and at home. The only complaint was a lack of renewal in sound quality; Roland was the impression that they live on their achievements in this area for years! It is true that compared to the scene (tea dances, balls, etc ...) the Ketron is more efficient in terms of sound, I also used to complement the G70

jlordclav's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good synth versatile arrang / midifile"

Roland G-70
76-key synth heavy but not hit right answer keys, a bonus vocal harmony exelent.
midi in / out / thru, USB, audio, a + b, hold, volume and action effects
More than 1,200 sounds, many editable Styles, a phonic wheel organ drawbars (Hammond) virtual synth guitar (with the keyboard 6 keys for strings re mi sol mi and if other keys to the rhythm right hand.
Cakewalk sequencer-type color display tracks
Very good effects, mastering more on audio output.


The setup is quite simple but it's "Roland" must be lapped.
edition is affordable when you know the manual "quite complicated in these exlications as always Roland must reread.


I use it for 5 years as a piano and synth group scene and duet with arranger and midi file,
I particularly like the tone wheel with its digital Leslie and vocal harmony
bemol only you can independently adjust the volume right where his left hand version tonewheel organ
I have and has a dozen of Roland is one of the best in this type
I definitely do it again this choice

Poulpy-Be's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good ergonomics, good looks but his has reprog"

Roland G-70
76-key semi weighted, summary edition of effect but sufficient for this type of keyboard connectors sufficient sequencer, karaoke function, vocoder, a damn good guitar mode and editing style is basic and very easy.
Armony zippers are great. It may come or disappear each instrument that makes up the style very easily. guaranteed effect.

Dbeam The gadget is a pretty fun, the G70 has a sensor on the left side of the keyboard. Thanks to him, you can bring a crowd or disappear effect.
Well controlled and configured, Ca throws in live use.

For the audio portion, the pianos sound great, the magnificent organ, the voice canon, everything sax guitar and accordion, it breaks my ears with the preset starting (too much too sharp!).
For leads and webs bof bof except some really good. Finally, and this is really unfortunate, the brass are shit. it sounds "old"

But the big highlight of the device and what does that separates me from ever is the "music wizard.
You can save all your songs with styles, sounds, effects and everything you can imagine and remember a single click.
For live entertainment, it's great practice in 1 sec you have your parameters and are ready to play.


Great ergonomics, so good that I never open the manual.
I did one or 2 times out of curiosity and everything is explained well.

Editing sounds is easy, in this context we must review the equalizer general is very poorly configured from the outset.

After haggling it's going much better already.

Much to let you know right away, factories, quality sounds (a few exeptions pressure) is really lame.

We must roll up their sleeves and go to settings to get something that sounds.
M'enfin is unfortunate that even when a keyboard is price, it better not be configured as AC departing!
There is nothing better to repel those who try it in demo!


I've had 3 years I had an E30 at the time was the best arranger of the year 80 and a Korg M1, an E96, a triton extreme 88 and recently a waldorf Q for the analog sound.
I bought roland closed eyes saw the cartoon of E30 at the time but I was somewhat disappointed by the quality of sounds in general.
The styles are quite frankly very very good, alive but very uneven. some are terrible, others are completely lame.
In all the styles are outdated, if you want some MIDI, go your way.
Despite all this keyboard looks great if you make animations for an audience somewhat old.

styles we are tons on the net, are good and less good.
I added a 1 gig card, with AC can save thousands of styles.

But what differentiates it from other arrangers his mouth of hell!
It is super beautiful, color touch screen is a terrible quality plastics and buttons is excellent. The beast is heavy enough, witness the strength and quelité elements.

Excellent value for money if you buy knowingly.

A remake, I will redeem it. it is very complementary to a synth that sounds more modern.

Seagull29's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland G-70
Well, after 5 years of use, always the same regret for not having a REAL keyboard heavy and only 76 notes, with 81 (standard piano), it would have been better but hey .... Another regret not being able to have an area per section (there are 6), which would be handy on stage, including sound effects or minor procedures with which we do not requires a lot of notes. Another regret, the unreliability of the USB connection in use master keyboard with Logic on a PC. It is when he wants!


Use issue, and the risk of repeating myself, it's really the swiss army knife! Convenient, fast, fast edition, the "Make Up" is great when using Midi Files PB incomplete and we want to improve the sound.
Ultra also practical for making models quickly, or bases, because the arrangements, including parts of batteries and copper, are well written. As for the manual, it does not give enough examples of manipulation but still manages to figure it out. In any event, even without, we arrive, after some trial and error to get by with flying colors. A small lack of understanding more "franchouillard" kind waltzes. Looks like the set of arrangement has been designed for a clientele beyond the Rhine. on the other hand, jazzy grooves are the god of fire!


5 years of loyal service, both on stage and in the home studio. Nothing to say for a typical use (ball, evening etc. ...). And V with the update, new features open new horizons, including the ability to use a MIDI file as a basis (with the number of steps you will) to make a new arrangement. The "Guitar" is very useful for a keyboard and can mislead, especially in the background. Finally, the possibility of equalizer in the Make Up is great because it fits the song really sounds or arrangement. on the other hand, a little disappointed by the brass, lack of truth. But if it was to do again, I redeemed without problem

jojo l'artiste's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland G-70
We know enough dj, arranger for it is really wonderful and beautiful, 76 keys, thousands of sonnorits, vocal harmonizer, 16-track sequencer editable ...
Short! it is really great this keyboard.


Nothing to say, the interface is really perfect, to believe that the manual (although also explained) will not vritablement necessary because you can get by without it. Moreover, the E-80 takes advantage of the ergonomics of the G-70 (a keyboard that I recommend as well).

However, I find that the guitars, brass and drum kits from the Tyros 2 are much better and the styles of the G-70 would make more grannies and grandpas happier but they are totally acceptable and all of the same well damn.

What I like most is the organ (with zippers), pianos, some tablecloths, give the plupar wind instruments, pianos and electric not to mention the human voice (jazz) poufff! too well! korg is a trans is clear lol!


I have over two years and I'm pissed off with, I ordered my Tyros 2 and I look m'clater with both.

It is clear that the Roland G-70 is more "pro" as T2, it is even more rsistant (20.5 kg). On an X korg PA, its my good drum kits charm and his guitars and synth APRS bof the rest! better a good G-70 arm for the road. That's a, ROLAND understood everything because for me the important thing is to enjoy playing and that is the case for this arranger with a similar ergonomics.

I still remember the day I dballe and removed from his big bote, I still have tears in eyes, we'll see if this is the case for T2.

paco91590's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland G-70
76-key arranger. Editing sounds possible (resonance, ADSR)
USB MIDI connection, etc., comprehensive view of the site features Roland.
Sounds and styles edited. Creating styles.
Effects section ok after a good command


For simplicity of configuration, it is better to already know the philosophy of an arranger! And clearly saw the possibilities, it takes several weeks or months to master, that is know and use the features;
Goodies: Edition sounds easy as limited (but sufficient, otherwise you have to buy a synthesizer). For the V3 there is a parametric equalizer. Comprehensive manual. I use it in bedside table and returns regularly to deepen or me remember certain features.
The less body weight, does not support audio, no hdd, but I knew before buying and I would do this choice. I intend to run (probably longer) they add a dedicated sound card piano (I do not know what card it is) and perhaps buy a synth expander type MFBII because I like innovation and the creation of sounds more personalized.


I use it since December 2006. I tried also the Tyros2 and Kork Pa1X pro.
What I like most: the pro side of the appearance of the keyboard, it's serious, it's solid and beautiful look. Frankly the fact Tyros gadget (for my taste) although technically certainly very successful, but in addition is a 61-key and I wanted to at least 76.
The touch button is also great that differentiates it from his colleagues and Pa1X Tyros.
I also like the organ sounds (Hammond and others) and the drawbars!
The price? The Tyros 2 is expensive too.
