Vale podría ser mejor, pero suena realmente bien y el kit de sonidos es el de la mc 303 con un monton de bajos muy buenos e imitaciones de analogicos que no estan mal lo peor es el sampler la ausencia de secuenciador sonidos no editables y la falta de estilos para cargar, lo mejor la buena amplificacion los sonidos (no todos) la entrada de linea (muy util para si tienes otro teclado) la reberv. A mí si me gusta, es muy inmediato, pero solo pague 50000 pts si hubiera pagado 150000 que costaba al salir tal vez pensaría de otro modo.

I've had the 101 for about a year now and finally found somebody that's gonna buy it off me in a week. I do have to say I will be sad to see it go(yeah right). I guess the reason I don't like it is because a week after I bought it I found out you couldn't program your own patches, you could only record songs which really don't work when your doing a live PA because you want to be able to have stuff loop. I do have to say it did teach me a little bit in production but I now find it way too limiting.

I now have two keyboards and a sound module. The Eg-101 is my last addition to my setup. I started by buying a Yamaha CS2x and then a Korg N1R. And I have to admit the Eg-101 is my favorite keyboard to play with. The yamaha as great sound but no preset at all and only good for one sound at a time and others are plain sounding. The korg N1R is just too dreamy. The Roland just kicks ass, I impressed a lot of people that were just bored with the yamaha. For live stuff it's excellent and the sampler is very useful. The dbeam is godsent. All in all, I paid 699$ canadian and it's a big bang for the buck. PLus the sounds are in the good to very good range. When you learn how to play with the sounds, its great. Plus just a tip, add some reverb to the plain sounding sounds. That's something roland did not prepare.

If anyone has a cakewalk instrument definition for it, please send it to me Thanks

I am disappointed with the range of sounds available on the eg101 although I do recognise that it is a bottom of the scale synthesizer and as such not too much can be expected! Also, i think with a little effort you can still produce good work with this piece of equipment! However, i desperately need someone to email me and let me know where I can get a instrument definition for the eg101 so I can use it with cakewalk pro 7 or I will have wasted money I just dont have!

OK OK guys so you may think that this keyboard is a little cheap, but anybody with any real musical skill should be able to pull something good out of this slightly "different" groove product. I used the EG-101 during a drum n' bass set and I found that some off the pads were quite interesting esspecialy the variation of sounds that fall under tone A55. It also is a good keyboard/workstation for teaching all those first time gear buyers a little about things like effects ( such as cut off ) and and other little things which are found in other groove gizmo's. It is not the best piece of gear that I have BUT it does has something interesting. The bass sounds are also interesting to use. Please if you are gonna judge a piece of gear, go through all of it's possibilities first, and try to be creative not lazy!
