The PC-88mx has all I ever need, both in the studio and on a gig. I love to set up a zone with a dense string sound and jam on the acclaimed Kurzweil acoustic classical piano beneath. The 440 piano sounds have helped over all intonation in a band setup, too. All that I miss is a good B-3 sound. With that, thi keyboard really would have it all. Oh, yeah. Don't try to many glissandos if you are afraid of bloody fingers. Despite its faults, it is my favorite keyboard overall. Can't beat the all-in-one action in a setup at this price. A+ all the way.

Hello everyone. I have the PC 88 MX and it is the best keyboard I have ever owned. I believe it all depends on what you are looking for in a keyboard. I just love the piano sounds, especially the "warm grand". I also love the strings sections and the acoustic guitars. The ability to create new sounds and the midi set-ups is an awesome addition. I use my Kurzweil during worship gatherings that we do in Houston and also for our creative kingdom jazz group "King'sPriest". The Kurzweil is tops for me. I did experience a situation with the weights and the keys had gotten stuck. I brought it to the store I purchased it from ( it's under warranty). I was told that a part need to be ordered, but I could not wait. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? It fixed itself. No keys stick and I have not had another problem with it again.. It's cool for me and I am glad that I have it!

Geez, Fred. Settle down! The PC88 was without rival four years ago, and still holds up well. I use them weekly in different live and studio situations, as well as the Micro Piano (1/2 rack module with the same sample set. You can find them used for 200.-250.) The acoustic piano sample records well enough for no-solo parts when the real thing is not available. But the overall performance of two newer controllers, the Korg SGproX and the Generalmusic Pro 2, outweigh the PC88 now. Both the GM and Korg have more choices for piano sounds, better and more diverse effects, and far better electric pianos (the PC88 doesn't even have a Wurlitzer sound). The PC88 with the additional board has more on-board sounds, but that's what racks are for! Just as a good weighted-action controller with great piano sounds, the PC88 still is a good choice, but there are better ones available. Of course this is an objective opinion, as all these reviews are. (Remember, if we all liked vanilla, there'd be no chocolate.) You have to listen to/play them all for yourself. Heck, even the RD600 has some great sounds!

I haven't had a chance to try the newest PC88, but I have an early one, and have been making a living with it for about three years. I like the touch better than all others I have tried. The upper end sounds fade in the last octave, but it's still better than almost anything available.

Great Keyboard. I love the action and the piano sounds One glitch in mine. Sound suddenly cuts off for no apparent reason and I have to shut down and restart to get going again. Always happens at the most critical possible moment. We'll see how the customer service dept. responds. BTW, anyone know of any good sequencing/notation programs for the PC-88/Mac. I have Opcode and an pretty frustrated at this point.
