The xp-10 man!!! some people really underestimate this little peace of plastic...its very good in term of sounds the fact that you could still combine your tones in whatever fashion... i was still able to create some nice old classics rhodes i mean when you still have an envelope and a filter with some good tones to work with.. its to damn good!!!i make good use of the organs too!! imagine when you dont have a built-in leslie effect well there some way i create my own!! i mean the x-dual cobine with filter lfo pallette at the same time!!! believe me there is some secrets receipes!!!the x-dual buisiness its more than normal crossfade you take two tones with there parameter all messtup from tere original value and combine them in x-dual move one of the slider and youl see!!!i wish there was still a website that would support the xp-10

The XP10 is a great learning synth and is under-rated, the OB samples are great, Arp is FAB and 808 drums easy to edit.

Roland could have done a better job with LCD display as it was poor without the backlight, the keys are very noisy, and the pianos are horrible.

I like this keyboard mainly because it's the only one I have at the moment! The sounds are suprisingly crisp for a KB in this price range. I bought mine from a friend at a good price of $150 USD.It might be harder or easier to get a deal like mine. The display is smaller than I like but I don't expect much for this entry level KB. The manual goes into good detail. It comes with a quick start sheet on the main features like the Arpeggiator and the dual/Split/X-Dual modes. It has a pitch/modulator joystick and two sliders that control parameters like cutoff and resonance. I like the TB-303,SH-101 sounds. TR-808/909 sounds are good too. Overall, Lots of Bang for the Buck. 3 rating is because of the display and limited programablity. Good Starter KB

I got my XP-10 when it came out. (It doesn't have the LCD backlight). It really is great. In fact I think it is too good. I bought a Yamaha MU100r to "upgrade". None of my XP-10 tunes are transfer-able to Yamaha XP. I just can't get it to sound right. The XP sounds are just to thick and fat. The Yamaha sounds are all thin, tinny, and flat. Of course you have to work the Yamaha to combine sounds etc, but it still doesn't have the pads, percussion, synth sounds. :( The XP does have some minor nauancies though: The keyboard tends to lockup, hang notes in the arpeggio, and the most annoying thing I find if you change channel during playback your sounds get messed up in certain situations. Maybe it's a Cubase thing Dunno. I also broke the pitch bend (electrically). I had to disconnect it from the mainboard. I'm thinking of ordering a replacement board. With a backlight. :-)

Excellent Sounds good GS sounds for comercial MIDI stuff. I have one in my studio which I have primarily used for converting my Sequences to GM/GS and passing them onto other performers and MIDI File phanatics.

I am selling it as it has now been replaced with a XP30 Synth which will give me what the XP 10 did with even more sounds and filter options.

The Synth is complete with manuals, cables power cords and in clean shape if anyone wants it. I am looking @ $950.00 Australian dollars.
