Yours doesn't sound like a real piano, harpsichord, etc??

Try running it through a decent stereo with solid speakers!! THEN the piano is great, the organ rocks! Tough to beat. Built like a tank and a decent feel to the keys.

First of all, this is an ANALOG electronic piano, not digital, hence the name ELECTRONIC piano (not electric piano). The sounds (so far) aren't so bad... I've definitely heard worse piano emulation. But they don't sound like real or sampled piano sounds. I have a feeling this 'board was an attempt to cash in on the early 80's pop wave, it seems to have relatively little functionality... it is built like a tank though. It has 4 "banks" of 2 sounds each, but I haven't figured out how to access them yet (no manual). The keys are velocity sensitive, and they seem weighted to me, perhaps more lightly than some 'boards though. MIDI: 1 MIDI in, 1 MIDI out, and 1 MIDI thru. Basically, for anyone looking for a good controller and a few extra "piano" sounds this would be a good buy, don't spend much on it though. I got mine for free.

One of those fake digital pianos... horrible sounds, keys are just slightly semi weighted.. The piano sounds are thin, and quite unusable. Probably only suitable when i was doing some funk (comping style) with the piano sounds.. other than that, anything that requires sustain notes... yucks..

and plus, it looks horrible. I really don understand how Roland can come up with such a nonsensical product. probably, at that time, any portable digital piano was a "WOW" .. well.. not for today. Basically, it is not a vintage synth, defintely not much in $$value.
