The solution I have found for timing glitches in the sequencer is in the part reserve feature. If you look at all the notes thats in each part in a performance you`ll notice that each part has only four voices for each instrument in your seqeunce.The solution is, zero all the voices in each part and only reserve the voices you`ll be using in each part.For example say you have four tones in your patch and your playing four note chords,reserve sixteen notes for your part,also try to quantize at 90%.This solution has work for me the last 3 months, I`ve been trying to solve this for two years.If anyone has tried this then email me with the results. Oh by the way a great sounding keyboard for any kind of music. I do full productions with this one keyboard now with good results.Also those who say the drum sounds are weak try to program your own drum kits and try the hiphop and session boards drum waveforms and program your own kits.I`ve pleased a lot of rap and r&b artist with these sounds.

By far, one of the best synths Roland has yet to produce. i have installed the Hip hop expansion board and have achieved lots of success. I love the patches... especially the pianos and strings. Bad thing is, the drums are not up to the standard of the Korg Triton, and the sequencer generates this annoying timing problem just when you get going good. I recommend using an external sequencer when producing a project. If anyone has any idea on how to remedy this sequencer problem, please post it.

I've been lurking around in the music store near my house trying out all of their keyboards, synths, and what-have-you, And when I first played this, I heard some very cheesey orchestral sounds. It reminded me of those radio shack keyboards that are trying to sound realistic, but just can't. So you don't even get the satisfaction of having a sound just for it's cheeseyness. THEN I LEARNED that those were the sounds that just came with it. Back when they first came out with this keyboard. The guy at the store installed the session, piano, orcestral, and vintage synths cards into it and then I realized that there ARE some good noises, you just have to pay extra. As far as programming goes, I'll just get some analog shit. But if you are someone who doesn't actually play violin or trumpet, then this keyboard should be the one for those kinds of sounds.
