Small precision: THIS IS the same sound engine as the X6 (same quality) Although there have less sound!

Just click here-a versatile workstation 5 octaves
In-wheel controller it is pitch-modulation, two types of pedals are connected: Hold (sustain) and the control of volume.Le D-beam, an IR laser assignable knobs 4 (default cutoff, R resonance, Attak and release) and of course volume gnral
-Connection for 2 pedals (dja cit, noon DIN (in-out-thru), USB, PC CARD (for memory, audio input for the sampler, for example (L mono / mic and R, level) and finally output the PHONO jack for headphones and 4 outputs (mono and Stereo)
I do not know how he did his yen but as a package, they can be more crs, all styles, because there ditables biensur.en Reverb, chorus, distortion (3), rotary, EQ, compressor etc. ...
We can conect to the PC
128-voice polyphony
I put 9 because he did not like the X6 color screens and dynamic pads

UTILIZATION

-The setup is simple when you know it, but after one week (if you have the manual in french) we dbrouille
-The edition of the sounds is complicated, you need quite a bone up the book, when the effect is quite simple
-The manual provides silent in English for me, but strong Luckily it can be found in french on the french site of ROLAND, otherwise it is clear.

SOUNDS

-Noise level, we have a wide choice, the piano sounds are exlents (piano pad and E-piano), with all the sounds I think about my foot shoe (for a sample based in a rock band)
Ralistes-sounds are piano, violin, guitar exlent, but the top brass are not to my taste
-Effects not to say they are perfect but not so editable
-The keyboard is dynamic and I have nothing else to say, except that it is a touching piano synth and not (come on X8)
"I love the piano Pad, sound FX ambience are great,''Music Box''sounds exlent; kit drums also sounds less like brass

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for three weeks, this synth is versatile, great for a base sample in my rock band, we approach the possibility of almost YAMAHA MOTIF ES but for a lower cost! I, who have for years jou on a keyboard arranger GEM (1992) I see all the Difference! The value for money is a vrment case, because with all the possibilities we are not dcu I think, against the memory is rstreinte, but you can add the RAM
I remake that choice without hsit is all I need! not asked for more except maybe a little more memory for samples
The X6 (or x8) are better now because there have the color display and more opportunities but it has vrment key CHARACTERISTICS them and then he vrment cheaper!
