Wonderfully Useful

By R

from NJ

I've been playing my PC1se for a little over a year now. I first bought it thinking it would be easier to move than my Yammy CP33, but its just a heavy (maybe heavier) and almost as long. At any rate, I love playing this thing mainly for the many great EPs that come installed via the Classic Keys ROM. Plus the MIDI setups are very powerful. I had to reach for the manual however to create and control MIDI setups. But once I learned I was happy. But I gotta say, I'm always hitting the wrong button and getting puzzled at what zone I'm changing. You gotta be careful about that. But as far as the sound this puts out and the feel, incredible. I look forward to playing this keyboard all the time. The Stereo Grand is excellent in a mix and not bad as a solo, although for solo piano, the CP33 sounds only marginally better, which is subjective in the first place.
