For the first time in over 25 years my MKS 20 has started to cause some problems. It may be the battery as sound is distorting. I recently bought a Fantom G8 and can't understand why nothing comes close to the MKS. It has an incredible sound and Roland seem uninterested in releasing a Fantom expansion board based on the new V Piano ( a crazy priced piano )

Haven't got a voice saving cartridge for it and wonder if the voices can all be saved to a Mac with cubase as replacing the battery could wipe the internal data !

I've been a Roland user since the age of 10. Believe it or not I bought my MKS-20 last year. I bought the P-330 first the MKS-20 lil brother w/more sounds. After buying the MKS and P-330 it was nothing but right to buy the JV modules to grab the layer sounds. There will never be another MKS-20! Word of wisdom: If you have a MKS-20 DON'T SELL IT. Friends keep trying to buy mine, I refuse to sell! lol!!

I have had my MKS20 for a few years now.And voice 7 and voice 3 are STILL ..SO similar to a Rhodes/Wurlitzer..and a CP70...that its doesnt matter. Using compression on the "Rhodes" (voice7)..really does bring in that Rhodes/Wurlitzer sound (crank up the gain a little on a tube amp..and it "BARKS" :)

I have been tryin to own one of these for years and I finally got my hands on it for $375.00 on Ebay. I had played on one unaware and its been like 5 years. The MKS -20 sound is second to none!! It breaks through ANY mix like no other! The sound CANNOT be duplicated whatsoever...believe me I've tried!! Those of you who are familiar with Jason White know what the MKS is cable of. I'm a gospel music player and I can't wait to get it to church and rip on it!!!

Still one of the best electric pianos around, even after 20 years.The chorus is fantastic. It doesn't necessarily sound like a real rhodes, but it works very well within most tracks, especially ballads or mid tempo songs. Also works well in a live setting. Piano sound is not realistic, but will cut through a mix. Works especially well in a church setting. I have been using the MKS-20 since 1997 or 1998, and have owned 2 of them.
