This is quite a bit of nostalgia for me as this was my first pro keyboard and as such, I also made a pretty good living off it for a time. It tends to show it’s age in some of the presets as it suffers from the famous Roland compression sound, but on the whole it was and still is serious bang for the buck and there’s still quiet a lot of “sparkle” to be found on some of patches.

Most of what it (and many contemporary keyboards) can do has been surpassed with some of the more extensive software sound libraries. But maybe one day, I’ll get another one for old times sake.
