Works well to play and learn basic functions of chords and music. 88 keys would be better for piano players (myself). Of course that means $. Hooks up well to the sound sytems I have used with. Would like to see suggestions for computer software. Difficult to locate reliable "learning the piano" software. My children enjoy the recordings and do-it-yourself recoding functions, as well as the choice of sounds. The sustain pedal could be a little more sensitive. over all a good product.

For the price, its an excellent beginners piece. Ive done all my production on it and now I mix it with the DR-5 from Roland. Some more recordable tracks wouldve been nice, but thats the only downfall I see in it...aside from the memory. It aint got the largest bank for songs in the world. One more thing: When you hook it up with your MIDI, be sure the automatic send function isn't on. I didn't realize it and lost everything I had in memory.

I purchased this keyboard approximately two years ago and it has truely been a blessing for me . I have created over 100 songs since I purchased it and I am still learning new creative ways to make music . Music started out as a hobby for me and now it's pretty serious bussiness . I play at least 30 hours per week on the keyboard mostly at night. I also have Cakewalk Pro Audio and both are helpful tools for me . I am presently working towards getting my music copywritten and serching for a record label to exploit my music . I did'nt really have any former trainning in music I just always had a love for it. I am presently taking lession for piano and voice. The music that I create range from Jazz ,Rock ,New Age, to, R&B. The sounds on the patches sound very real to me . First I want to thank you for this Webb site and second if there are any Record Labels that you may have an inside track on please forward the contacts. Also if you have any updates for downloadable software for this keyboard please forward. Thank you for your time. Dreams can come true!

I have been reading the reviews in the forum and I think I should step in.

I am mainly a gutiarist Flutist. I play many other instrument also, I also

use alot of MIDI. I have been messing with keyboards since the late 70's and

Although this keyboard looks like a toy, and resembles the use of only one of

those old organs that played drum beats, I think this keyboard is great. This

keybourd like others has its stong points and weak points on sounds. I think

this keyboard is great for people who like to write midis but cant afford a

2000 dollar keyboard. I also think that it is great for musicians with families

that they want to get interested in music. And let us not forget about the great

Keyboard, drums, organ and string sounds. The fact that you can even buy more sounds

for it. I think we should be fair about how we critique. Yes I would agree that this is not

Techno keyboard. If you have ever been to a studio session you would see that there

are alot more that one keyboard making some of those sounds. They are also using synthesizers

wich this keyboard it not. They are also using samplers which this board is not. I rate this key board the highest rating especially for the money. I have not met

anyone even in a professional studio environment that didnt like this board. It is useful

in many different applications, and would make a great addition to any keyboard rack if

you can pass up what it looks like and that is has a casio style toy aura about it(which aint bad either!)
