The RS-9 has been excellent for what I want it for. Bit disappointed in the pots though, two have decided that to be arbitrary is good, but never mind, soon to be replaced. Not broken any keys though! As above, the keys are lightly weighted, enough to give feeling, but not enough to be that useful.

Great as a controller, cheap money, nice warm sound, very good range of voices. Anyone who can't make this fit into their genre needs shooting; it's wormed it's way into my affections by being quietly versatile and dependable. And having 88 keys.

I can have a bad day, fire up the RS piano/strings and cheer myself right up. Not the best synth ever, but very useful, and I love it.

Although I am not a prof. To me, it's an excellent synth, a vast of voices to select from many Roland series, like D-50, XP-80, JP-8000. I have seen several people in this review rated it as an average; whose said it has awful piano sounds & organ sounds? Try to turn off the affect off, you can compare the organs with other keyboards. I think it sounds similar to the Roland/Rodgers W-50 I have now. The only negative about this synth is it has 88 keys, too big for me to carry & fit into my car.

I have had my RS-9 for 18 months. I love it. It's my main controller for my studio gear. Normally, I work in XG so I don't even use the Roland sounds. I use the sounds from a Yamaha module. But it is very nice when I do record with the RS sounds. I like the square wave synth sounds. I like the organs & brass on this synth also. The arpeggiator is great also.

The midi implementation is flawless. I plug it into my sequencer and the sequencer does the rest. The patches line up. Perfect.

This baby is beautiful to look at. Easy to use. Solid. It costs less than 1 grand and it weighs only 23 pounds. How can you go wrong?
