        I wanted to buy a triton but they were a bit out of my price range. However I got the Roland xp-60 from www.dawsons.co.uk for 800 pound including deilvery(www.turney.co.uk do similar price) rather than 1400 RRP It sounds brill, ace amazing. The manual is naff, naffer than naff. I couldn't understand how to do anything for a while and then kaboom. I went oh yeah, still I only understand about 1% of what it can do, but that is enough. You get hundreds sounds, a 60,000 note sequencer, over 16 tracks and a disk drive, which isn't that slow. Some sounds are great, some well a bit more naff but you have enough to choose from, and as they are all modifiable you can tweek them, or make your own. And that is the best way for instance to get a groovy piano rather than the default placid one. There are I think around 20 PCM cards, each card holding 192 new instruments(the keyboard can hold 4 cards) but I still haven't gone through the ones that came with the keyboard. And all you guitar players can retire, the keyboard can do that fo you. I'm still at the early stage, but the sequencer is so great, I don't even connect to the PC anymore. And if you search the web you can find free sounds to download, so what's the point of buying the cards??? Buy it.

        the roland jv1080 i own is not used to its full capacity. It has great high quality sounds and an effects section but using it has been a bit of a chore. I tend to stick to preset sounds of which there are around 664, then theres performance mode and the rhythm sets. There are 40 effects but its a bit tricky assigning them. I tend to do everything I need withing Cakewalk Pro Audio rather than touch the JV panel! The outputs are a bit limited. I would have liked an output for each midi channel. The owner manual is a bit mind blowing as well, with little diagrams of how the sounds are made up, ring modulators and other things you dont really need to know. Im a musician and just wanted to get some sounds out of it. At the time I bought the jv1080 it was £700, this has probably dropped dramatically by now. Overall it has been a useful sound module but I maybe should have gone for something with easier access to change and alter sounds! I can't fault the quality of the sound, it is good, but the ease of use could be improved.
