I found out the hard way. I bought the RS-5 for the band to downsize my rig. Now I'm out the money ($675) and am stuck with a nice looking keyboard which has wasted my valuable time with programming and with which the band thought I was "not working out" by having this keyboard as a slave for the sounds that It was supposedly intended for. Now I am forced to sell it and learn from my mistake. I guess there isn't a cheap replacement for the sounds from my RD600 from Roland. Also, we piano players must have both hands on the piano for a full sound. Tom M

I really think this is a clinker. The construction is cheap and he interface is the worst I have encountered in thirty years of synth playing. Although the sounds are supposedly XV, they lack bite and are not edittable. Overall, quite dismal. OK for beginners but why not get a Yamaha S-30, it is far, far better (and so is the PK-6)

Bought mine to replace the XP10 for mainly multi-timbral use. RS5 sounds are better than XP10 but don't have the clarity as the XP 10. Otherwise pretty good for the price. Anyone want to buy an XP10 with manuals in good condition.

Roland RS 5 is perfect tool, when I bought him I had at choice Korg Triton, Yamaha CS 6x, CS2X, Korg N264, However this Roland RS5 proved most modern tool both users preferring natural sounds how and synthetic, Perfect electronic drums sounds, with only which one fault with I came together this little amount good of low basses, but this nothing in comparison with huge potential of tool. Is much better than XP 50, or even XP 80, here Roland showed class, here does not have place on old colours all colours reflect this what at present happens in music. Better from RS 5 can be only FANTOM but who on this to stand? I create music electronic and am from him very satisfied certainly is not this tool only for beginner, satisfied will be all.

It's been a week since I bought mine. I will admit the sounds aren't ground breaking, but that's not what this synth is for. It gives you typical generic Roland sounds with a good controller. The menu system is insanely confusing requiring too many button pushes to access important things.

But I got what I wanted out of this: A good replacement for my old Casio. If you already have a good controller and a good module, avoid this.
