While I'd usually agree with you and cringe - in this instance, for practicality in rapid development, media work, quick demos etc. - this could be handy - you have the features of an arranger but in a very compact unit. If it's cheap enough - park it in somewhere convenient and play it from a full size keyboard. So this could be quite popular with a lot of pro musicians who woudl never fork out for a full arranger but who need, on occasion, that conveience for the odd job requiring its features. They should release their main arrangers as modules or software plugins - I'd suspect there'd be a market.

I have had the microarranger for 3 weeks now and I have only one complaint and I'll get to that later. This is an amazing instrument. I was blown away at the ease of transition playing on the smaller keys that feel great. The sounds are stunning and I would say that includes at least 95% of them which is an amazing rate on any keyboard. The styles are absolutely professionally made. With 2 sequencers live play has endless possibilities. The option to edit and create original styles is a great addition. The chord scanning with full keyboard scanning is flawless. Recording in B. seq mode is a piece of cake. With the ability to convert other styles you have endless style availability. Now to my only gripe. It is not battery operated, which would make it totally portable. However I am confident that someone will come up with a fix for this. All of those who judge this product without checking it out are missing out on a great tool for songwriting and live play.
