the pma 5 is a unique peice of gear. For 5 out of 5 i rank her a 4 1/2. One its a synch for ibm/mac/laptop/and midi at a flip of a switch. Two its completley convenient and portable(small size with big sound and a touchscreen). Three, it is very low maintenence with no buttons to jam or fade and durable. Four its efx unit and built in four track w 3 sytle track backup is very smooth for controlling specif sound. the 1/2 is i cant find a manual. Thanks guys

This thing sounds fantastic. With a sampler and synth this unit is all bobby digital would need to make a hit record. The only problems I have experienced with this unit is the lack of a tap tempo where you can program the BPM by pushing a button 4 times. That would really make this product pro. I would recomend this unit to any beginer who wants to add piano, string,organ and drum sounds to a midi setup. its also great if all you got is a guitar and a voice. this thing is great for song programing. I find it will be really important to my home studio. I have been using it primarily as a drum machine. and the touch pad is really quick and easiy for that. Did I mention this is portable. I love it. Really a great bargain I got mine for 200 brand new. but I also find myself needing a drum machine and a synth.

Just bought PMA-5 brand new - £75.00 great potential and fun item for the price of 7 packets of guitar strings - not all sound are usable likewise patterns but nice item - if a bit dated!

I just got the PMA5 (used) about two weeks ago. I love it! The video instruction is adequate, but I'm curious about what's in the printed manual. I can't find it anywhere! If anyone can recommend a source or share a copy, I'd be happy to pay for copying and shipping. If PMA5 owners unite, perhaps we can prevail upon Roland to release a newer version. For quick arranging, the PMA5 is awesome!

Oh - my - god!!! This is a great working unit. Just after the first look you're able to work with it. It's very easy to use. I couldn't figure out that many details yet because I got it just a few hours ago, but what I've seen about this unit was very,very nice. Some sounds are really crappy, but which synth has only nice sounds? Most of the sounds are very good anyway, and they are very different from each other. The touch screen works very well, too. The only problem I thought about before I could test it was the thing that you can't play more than one key with the touch pen, but after a short look I realized that even this is possible because of one feature of the pma5. I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to connect it to a masterkeyboard, but during your holidays the touch screen keyboard will work fine.
