I bought my Pro-E over a decade ago and I still use it frequently with both my MC-50 and PC. It does seem to be more suitable for orchestral arrangements more than anything else but with some creative mixing of voices it can do a decent job with many other types of music. I find it lacking in grungy/gritty guitar sounds, though. If you're putting together a 'Led Zep' or 'Black Sabbath'type of track, the Pro-E just won't cut it (I keep trying anyway lol). Even with its shortcomings I still wouldn't part with mine.

very usefull bit of kit, makes ideas come to life, one problem though is that you cant edit the preset voices, but apart from that, very smooth sounding and ideal for a small midi setup.

useful little keyboard for guitarists to bring to gigs. it's got 6 tracks (solo, lower octave, manual bass, manual drums, sound effects, excellent velocity-sensitive keys. cool sound effects. the sounds themselves are not as bad as others have described it. just be creative with the way you use them

As a 'faithfull sidekick' it is pretty good. The 37 keys velocity responding keyboard is its strongest point. You can't buy a decent masterkeyboard for $50, but you may get lucky and find a ProE.

The sound are, well, outdated to say the least. As an arranger to make some demo's it works well, but I wouldn't recommend making any masters with it, because of the weak sounds.

The sequencer works, but in this aspect too it is outdated, usable only as a worktool, but not for the definitive work.

Midi channels can be assigned to all instruments (acc., bass, drums and solo), which makes it possible to use the arranger with sounds of a newer synth(module). I hooked it up with a SC-50 set on the orchestral drumkit, strings, and horns. Weird...

I give it 3 out of 5, mainly because it is easy to use and virtually unbreakable. Good stuff for your money.

I use this keyboard all the time to compose hard rock and other songs while limited I do find it to be useful. Some of the effects are some what cool such as laughing thunder screaming etc. The manual drums are ok for adding texture as well as a basic scratch pad . Bottom line if you can compose a cool sounding song with this as your back up the real thing is awesome and much easier to get accross to the other musicians. Bottom line it's a simple tool and I don't have a manual anyway so keep on rockin from the radrockerdude.
