Fantastic alternative for a real piano, in case that you don't have the space or money for a real one. Piano and Rhodes sounds so f#cking good, much much much better than all Roland and Yamaha digital piano's. For the feeling of the keyboard and sound, the Promega 3 puts his rivals really into shame. One minor: it's not only huge in achievements, but also in size... So if you want tho go on tour with it, you've got to keep that in mind.

I don't have one yet, i'll soon be buying one however. I work at a music shop in london "Turnkey", and having used the instrument everyday for a month or so, i have to say it is awesome!!! People come in asking about yamaha-p250s and roland RD700s but this beats the competition hands down. It is the only digital stage piano on the market that actually has CHARACTER and doesn't sound like an "over perfectly tuned digital instrument". The piano sounds are amazing, try the upright it actually sounds worn in, with a quick decay like a real upright. And the jazz piano is brilliant. this is one of those pianos where you're always gonna be able to find a piano sound to suit. And with the EQ the timbres available are endless. The ability to mix instruments from each of the four banks (piano/electric/strings/bass+other) works amazingly well! The wurly's and rhodes are out of this world!!!!!!! The clavinet is actually taken from a clav once owned by stevie wonder bought from an auction. It sounds real vintage! I'd like to say well done to General Music (GEM) cos they have created a diamond. It's one of those items that not many people know about, which makes it all the more special. The piano sounds so good cos of the rusty worn characteristics created by the slight imperfect tone. I mean we're all used to digital pianos being so finely tuned that they are only bound to sound artificial...but this one has managed to escape the "digital sounding" domain!!! Well done GEM...fantastic!!

I just bought my Promega last week and I am very pleased with the quality of the piano voice. I chose the Promega because I am digitizing an old baby grand that I have that isn't fiscally worth restoring. The Promega will just fit where the action has been removed. I have also a Kawai MP9500 and ESX-1 as well as Steinberg's software The Grand. The Promega has a much more defined dynamic range than the Kawai's with the ability to really mimick the brightness that occurs when a string is struck at high velocity. The 9500 however has a much more realistic feel to it's keyboard; perhaps because it really has hammers that throw like a real grands action.
All in all, I'm really looking forward to years of enjoyment out of this keyboard.
