      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Now selling secondhand for about £600, this keyboard is a bit of a bargain in my opinion. Basically a JV1080 module with a keyboard and sequencer attached the only thing lacking is separate outputs, just a stereo pair, but if you are multitracking, no problem. The sound engine is ROM wave based and is of as good quality, not as clean as say a Korg Trinity, but suitable for a majority of musical styles. 64 voice polyphonic, I have used it for complete arrangements without running out of voices. Analog style sounds are possible but require a bit of work. The sequencer is easy to use but you need to do a lot of thinking and working out in your head because the lcd display is a bit small by today's standards. Drawbacks, there are a couple, General Midifiles can give this unit a problem is over complex, although I have yet to find a problem with commercially purchased files. Secondly, only one multi effects processor available, but perhaps that's getting a bit greedy for £600. A programmer's dream there are plenty of options for sound creation and most importantly the wave rom can be expanded using Roland own Expansion cards.
