- What type of keyboard (synth, piano ...)? How many octaves?

Keyboard synthesizer, dynamic but no aftertouch.

- What connections (audio, MIDI ...)?

Midi In / Out, Line In / Out, etc ... memory.

- How many sounds and styles available? Are they edited?

See instructions. Not editable.

- Has he an effects section?

Yes. Good reverbs.

- What are the characteristics of the sequencer? ...

Never used.


- The general configuration is it simple?

Yes, the panel aspect of aircraft is very enjoyable at first. The selection of sounds and styles is by two-tabulations, plus three other buttons to select variations. The access is very straightforward.

- Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?

Failure: as soon as it is necessary to go through the menus is much more complex because of the 2-line LCD.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

I hardly used the manual: you learn on the job fairly easily.


- How long have you use it?

I bought it in 1998. I'm pretty used to start (2 years, beginner), and then at all. It still works very well even after many trips and a few scratches.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

The styles are a little older, but otherwise they are done well: when you activate the "one-touch play" and "auto-play-chord", which plays with the intro, transitions, Finally, it seems to lead an orchestra, even if we know nothing and we play anything

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

No. The seller has put me impress with the arrangements mentioned above
And then the other models were out of budget.

- How would you rate the quality / price?

At the time, bought used in a shop, I think it was okay. Today there are models superior to the lowest price! Frankly when compared to a Yamaha PSR nine at the same price level, there's no photo. The sounds are still and always significantly better on the Technics (especially piano, pan flute, organ).
The amp is good, even if a slight wind that seems to be characteristic Technics (See other posts)

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes. I was disappointed that no longer existed Technics. Of course there is the sentimental attachment to the first instrument, but even if it is technically outdated, I think it has a very good value in use, since it has no major defect or lack of large .

Oh anyway, it is not compatible GM (General Midi), so at the beginning when I connected to my PC, I was really disappointed, and then I have used that more 'individually.
