The sounds are an issue

By Philip M. Adair

from Austin, TX

I just bought this keyboard because it was a really good deal. 192+ high quality sounds, better than my old JV-1000 patches? as well as the midi controller functionality, and the new pipeline audio transmitting technology? But it turns out most of the sounds are unrealistic and terrible. The rhodes in particular have ghastly distortion at peak velocity. And sometimes the pitches go sharp after you pitch bend or use the mod wheel. Excellent midi controller though. I guess you pay for what you get.

Finally

By Bro Ben

from Los Angeles, CA

I haven't heard or used it yet, but my experiance with EMU stuff tells me that this must be a fantastic instrument and the price will put all other keyboards to shame. Can't wait to find out how the keys 'feel' but I know the quality of sound will be great if they are useing thier legendary sound engine
