Keyboard 76 notes, connection Midi 1 & 2 (2 in and 2 out), section (DSP effects formidable!, Very realistic sounds, but very good writings "Anglo Saxon" style, 16-track sequencer and audio recording capability. pretty good.


Configuration very simple and use available during the game. Editing sounds and effects relatively easy although it should go into many pages (pity there is no touch screen), user manual limited (basic) and reference manual (more complete) only available in PDF on the web (we would have liked a manual paper reference). Pretty good.


Well, it's been five months of use. After having had a Roland G70, the difference in sound is obvious. Very good sound quality and styles are very good writings, especially in terms of jazz and variety, although very Anglo-Saxon (in my opinion less relevant in terms of europeene culture). For cons, the edition styles is curious. In fact, except for the drum part, we have not access to the other instrumental parts to remove notes, for example, making it necessary to go through an external app. Not practical. From this side, the Roland G70, although former is still very early. The breaks are one measure, although annoying to build, for example, longer transitions. In fact, the Yamaha philosophy is still curious. The lack of touchscreen is felt, especially for call parameters, which is a shame for a camera of this price.
on the other hand, recording audio and possibility to integrate the Multi Pads audio or midi is geniale (parts of choirs pres recorded some songs, rhythmic phrases adding parties to the arrangements or effects, for example). As for the DSP effects and super joints, is formidable because it actually adds to the game of truth (the amp simulations for guitars are truly amazing). In my opinion, a bit expensive anyway and especially should gain simplicity in terms of publishing in general. And a small synthetic floor would have been welcome. Little regret for the feel of the keyboard is far behind the semi-weighted of the G70, a reference in the field.
A very good instrument that I do not regret having bought especially for the sounds and arrangements, both on stage that computer music. And keyboard 76 keys was anyway very attendu.Sans problem, I do it again this choice.
