This keyboard is a must for anyone who is serious about their music. For the price there isn't a keyboard out there that can give you more features/sounds/performance. One of my favorite features is the sound finder. All I have to do is type the first few letters of the patch I want and presto. Also all the sounds are placed into banks based on their sound catigory. All strings are in strings, Retro synths and sample in Synth Vintage, Pianos in Piano, ect. Also it has this idea pad that captures everything that you play. So lets say you are just messing around and play a hot lick and forgot what you did, have no fear. The ZR will remember everything that you did and play it back for you and allow you to send it to the sequencer for editing or add to an existing sequence. Now lets say you time doesn't match up with the sequencers tempo the exclusive ENSONIQ delta quantize feature will put it in to the right time for you. The ZR comes with a 16MB Perfect Piano expansion card and provides you with the best sounding piano on the market, plus it gives you a couple of hot electric pianos as well. The weighted action of the board is one of the best out there and if you close your eyes you would think you were playing a grand. The drum samples will make you kick your drum machine to the curb. Powerful very Powerful. I almost forgot to mention the other expansion cards on the market. The Urban Dance card smokes, kicks butt. It doesn't matter if you do dance or not most of these sounds will add flavor to any mix of music. The Real World Expansion is an AWSOME collection of sound and instruments from all over the world. HEY just go buy one now. Any questions e-mail me.

Comments About the Sounds:
The perfect piano patch is a must for anyone who needs a TRUE piano sound to cut throught the mix or stand alone. Believe me it lives up to the perfect piano patch name. Also check out the synth vintage patches. Relive the days of analog and classic samples with this collection of 70's-80's patches. The Capt'n'Crunch is sure to scare the pants off of the most avid guitar player and the drums will about make you kick your drummer to the curb. Hey forget the rest of the band. With the sounds of the ZR you can cut your next CD alone. The ZR comes with a program to help you edit and create your own sounds.
