stompboxjon's review"room for improvment"

Alesis Fusion 8HD
Alesis fusion is a good keyboard, and I have used it several times. But there is a lot of room for improvement with it which is one of the reasons I actually didn’t purchase it myself (though I did think about it). One of the main reasons that I knew it wasn’t for me was with the sequencer, after coming from some of the yamaha and korg line of keyboard workstations, the Alesis Fusion sequencer just fell short to me.


UTILIZATION

Understanding the Fusion is pretty simple all of the functions are easy to find and they arent hard to understand either. With a little patience and some extra time you can figure this board out without any instructions in no time. I havent seen a manual for it and I was good using it in about a hour or so.


SOUNDS

When it came to the sounds and banks, some of the are really good. And some were not so good. But that is normal for keyboards, they will have some great sounds and then some that are not so good.
Some of the strings actually surprised me though, I didn’t expect them to be so full and rich. Even some of the brass was ok, but the bass patches I wasn’t a fan of. I felt they could have put more energy into really getting some good bass patches. It just seems like they over looked that part.


OVERALL OPINION

Its not a bad keyboard workstation overall, just the sequencing wouldn’t work for me in the long run. In the studio that I was in it was ok to use just for then. But I would take a yamaha or korg anyday over the Alesis Fusion 8HD. But the good thing about it is that the price isn’t as bad as the other high end models. So that’s always a plus for us musicians that cant afford expensive gear.

Alesis Fusion 8HD
The Alesis Fusion Hd is a pretty powerful workstation for use producers and musicians. I purchased this product when it first came out on the market in 2005. I had the Fusion 8HD with 88 weighted keys. But no matter how many keys or which version of the Fusion HD board you purchase they are identical.

UTILIZATION

The Fusion HD by Alesis has taken the concept of most workstations to a different level, you can do a little bit of everything on this board and it even can connect to your pc with USB. It has expandable memory and a hard disk recorder. Most of these type of workstations are extremely expensive but Alesis has brought one to use at a great price that you just flat out can beat. I was extremely happy with my purchase of the Alesis Fusion 8HD, the value of it never really left because I used it for 2 years then I sold it, and almost sold it for the same price that I bought it for. That means that it’s a great product if it keeps its value and doesn’t depreciate.

SOUNDS

Sounds are pretty good, well rounded sounds. Nothing that really stands out that good to mention though. Most of the sounds are sounds that you can find on a number of different boards or vst’s.

OVERALL OPINION

But overall this is a board that you can do it all on, and still leave some money in your pocket. I just looked up to see how much this board cost, and it hasn’t changed since when I sold mine. The price as stay right around the same thing for the last 3 years which is great and that shows that Alesis creates a quality product. I have used several products by Alesis and I have never had a complaint yet.

Alesis Fusion 8HD
88notes heavy touch keyboard
pleasant feel good

UTILIZATION

Editing is simple but can be complicated for the fans because the synthetic possibilities are endless

The manual sucks is the impression that the manual is for a computer

SOUNDS

The sounds are varied and in numbers that borders on indescence so there!
with the evolution of sound between version 1.0 and now it's night and day, the bank continues to Hollowsun dévellopper there's more to load the hard drive of 80 gigabytes and it use the new patch are part of the Fusion.
beautiful pianos I want to emphasize

The effects are good

The ergonomics of the machine is questionable tellemnt ago of grouping of functions and it's just gas plant at first

OVERALL OPINION

I have retro futuristic ADAT output "Yes that's" sounds galore

I've never tested are integrated multi-track 8 so I will not go.
I like less are sequencer "we must get used to it"

value for money is unbeatable there is no machine that can compete for that price!

I just wish the Triton sequencer with which I worked quite a few years.
