This is just a simple GM/GS synth. I you'd like your SoundCanvas to be incorporated in some sturdy Roland Synth then this is the thing. It is totally uninspiring, but it does the job. I've been using it to rehearse with my band at University studios, and after 5 years it still works. That says something about reliability

I hate the keyboard!!!! It's typically Roland!

That said, the sounds are quite good for the price. I use what you might call a 'vintage' rig, with a DX7, SY77 and JV30. The JV30 gives me a decent piano sound to layer with the DX's pads. The combination works well.

The brighter piano sounds cut through the clutter on stage, and the layer and split features are a plus.

If you don't mind your acoustic instruments sounding like they were produced electronically, the JV30 should suit you.

Don't expect to get a high-end synth here, but at about $300-400, it's a pretty good deal.

This is a good solid keyboard for what it is. Not much in the way of frills but it is very usefull as a secoond or third keyboard. Very nice piano sound. I would recommend this to anyone just starting out or to an experienced user looking for something extra.

OK GM Keyboard, good piano sounds and some decent pads, handy, reliable (except for the mod. controller that's gone south (has anyone had that happen? is it hard to fix?). For the used prices stated in the above reviews, a very useful buy.

I guess its ok, but there is a very annoying bug that changes the local on/off when used with a sequencer.
