Excellent VALUE!!! for a General Purpose Sound Module.

The manual is TERRIBLE !

Have owned it for 2+ years, has made 30+ trans-oceanic flights, has performed many shows, is triggered from laptop software, ... has NEVER, EVER failed. Strongly recommend it for:

- a semi-proffesional keyboard player who needs one unit that offers good &quot;standard&quot; sounds (piano, organ, orchestra[strings,brass,woodwind,...], traditional[sitar, kyoto, bagpipe,...], etc).

- any musician just getting into sequencing/etc. who needs a good drum sound and good standard keyboard sounds. (bass sounds are good also). Right out of the box you'll be able plug in &amp; play (keyboard unit triggered from a controller). Then, when you start triggering it from software/sequencers ... you'll fight it for a little bit before you configure it. (It's not too bad if you are already familiar w/ Sequencing/MIDI etc). Anything beyond this becomes a real pain because the documentation SUCKS ! There is a lot of cool stuff in this unit that is hard to get to because of this, so it takes a long time before you get comfortable w/ it to use it to its max potential.

Excellent sound quality and their are many choices.

Piano, organ, percussion, voice, string, synth samples are great.

Killer all-around keyboard machine.

Don't care for the solo horn or string samples-

Roland if you hear this send us some better ones.

The worst part about this instrument is the manual, I'd sure like to find

a book or a newsgroup dedicated to the MGS64. I use about

a percent of its capacity, with little hope of improving my understanding.
