It is a very good keyboard for its price, specially if you like acoustics sound rather than sinth sounds. I have been using it connected to an external secuencer to make ballads, classical, pop and soft music, and it sounds even more realistic than the korg x5d (which I have also conected to the same secuencer to compare their sounds). The reason of this is because roland xp10 have an exellent drum sets (very acoustic and similar to an octapad of its same brand), excellend acoustic piano sound (remember that roland's acoustics piano sounds have always better than korgs ones) and excellents acoustic nylon and steel guitars and strings. I have used some midis (SMF)clasical orchestra, or ballads songs download from internet using only my roland xp10 GM sounds and recorded into mp3 and when I made my family and friends listen to them they couldn't believe it was my roland xp10 sounds. In conclusion, the best keyboard on this low price.

The XP-10 was especially in the late 90s around 1998 very useful in several Productions. This synth is indeed one of the most underestimate devices. Great arpeggios, killer saws, liquid, fluid sound, the 101 and SynthBasses are liquid like water, much better in sound quality then the Raven, but also a bit thinner. The OBStrings are one of the highlights, also other Pads are great. A problem are the limited filter capabilities, sometimes the filter scratches then you have to reduce the loudness in that case. The chorus effect is totally Hifi, adds a lot of space to each sound. Nevertheless in comparison to the Raven/Quasar, the Reso/CutOff is 10 times better, but the Quasimidi Synths have more organic warmth and bass strength, the XP sounds digital warm not that organic like The Raven. The lower key regions are his greatest advantages, the higher are thin and irritating cheap in quality sometimes. Use the lower Key regions, especially the Saw is the best sound in this key area. The XP10 Saw belong to the most hypnotizing Waves, which surely will stimulate your brain. I sold it but had a real good time with it.

I got my XP-10 shortly after it got out, so I have the non-backlit, buggy-OS version :) (maybe the backlit ones are buggy, too?). At the time, I thought it sounded great and had some usable features for playing live. Today, I have an XP-80 together with a Virus KB for playing "for real", and I mostly like the XP-10 for its modest weight and its apparent durability (the weight helps here:), but I *still* think it sounds great! I actually used the XP-10 for everything but the piano on a recent recording. At the price these go for today, you really get som bang for the buck. Top rate for sounds, one off for tweakability, another off for plastic feel and one added for portability.

Play my xp-10 live 3-4 times a week. Yes its plastic but it is so nice to carry around. My other Korg takes a small wagon to carry across parking lots. Who wants to be tired prior to playing ? Great sounds, ease of use, awesome drum patches. Only lacks built in sequencing.
