3 acoustic pianos SA synthesis, a vibraphone, a clavinet, a harpsichord and two pianos electric. Chorus, tremolo, Equalizer effects!
16 channels of polyphony, balanced and unbalanced outputs.
Module piano from 1986, the famous expander RD1000, originally designed as a tank, very supplied electronically!
No need for manual, publishing is summed up in the effects, the output level and you can store it all in 64 submissions, largely sufficient.
Frankly, who knows the sounds of RD1000/MKS20? widely used in music production, piano No. 3, not to mention the two great electric pianos. As one can find fault with the acoustic piano, although I appreciate the Lots No. 1 as boilerplate, but the two electric pianos are superb, and, on the whole range!
Lots of material in the medium, a nice deep bass, treble and a very pleasant. Compare the Yamaha Motif, the sound is bigger on the Roland, though the Yam nothing wrong so far, but 20 years apart!! as what, when an instrument is well thought out, it lasts, this is the case of MKS20.
It's been over 20 years that I have, and always faithful to the post, it's great just as a Roland Jupiter-8 for synthesizers. I just had a small breakdown of nothing, an op-amp hs that's all. If not at the building is very heavy, certe today, for better acoustic pianos there, we hesitate to put several hundred MB of samples for a single piano sound, but on electric pianos. reveb with a nice behind, I'm not sure that today we have re-invented the wire sliced bread!

Recall that the MKS-20 sound module is the famous R & D-1000
So there: excep-tion-nel.
The piano sounds sound a bit metallic, certainly, but very good nonetheless.
Those looking for good sounds of Rhodes will be filled with depth, nuance and expressiveness imparrables. In summary, the electric piano sounds are great, there is the strength of the MKS-20.
But what advantage!
I use it for a few days, and to be honest, I squinted over recent years.
The sounds of electric pianos are truly exceptional. FYI, these are those used for example by Goldman "Over there", or the album "New Morning at the Zenith" (for those whose girlfriends love jean jaaacques Jonasz ...), or Elton John to name a few.
The MKS-20 can therefore afford the sounds of the famous R & D-1000 with a small footprint, and pout me on a brand new keyboard (FP-5).
I would buy again!
