Easy to use? Hmmm, Ive had so much equipment over the last 17 years. I read a couple lil items in the manual and havent touched it since. It all makes sense once I made my first original track. The only thing that sucks about this board is you cant scan through sounds/voices while playing your pattern. Thats a waste of time and the only thing I hate.
Quality.. I bought it used and it has been flawless so far. Strong heavy and powerful. My first Yamaha product so I was a little skeptical when I sold my Fantom.
Sound quality I feel is great. Everybody else says they can tell the difference between my old equipment. Not enough Trance Synths like a Virus etc... But for my Hip-Hop it rules.
So far it is my favorite piece of equipment I have ever had. I never run out of voices like I did on the Roland stuff. I use samples and everything and fill alot of tracks thick and never lost sound or quality yet.
