Upgrading at last: JW-50 to .....What?


After 20 years of loyal service, my Roland JW-50 is dying. I tried to replace it with a Roland Juno gi without success. My ideal machine will do everything that the JW-50 does and also allow audio inputs from guitar and microphone. The sequencer on the JW-50 allows a rhythm track to be laid down easily in layers. It allows tracks to be recorded while listening to already recorded tracks. My intention is not so much performance as composition and home use.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What is your budget? Have you auditioned any other Roland keyboards?
Just a quick heads up... you will definitely receive more input from the Keyboard Magazine forum.

Would it be possible to somehow put guitar in the JW-50 mix? The JW-50 has the 5 pin MIDI socket. Can guitar be added somehow. My budget is about USD 1500. Thanks for your response.

As I mentioned before, try posting on the Keyboard Magazine Forum. You'll receive more help there as it's a very busy forum.
