The Roland FP-4F for me
I bought the FP-4F from Sweetwater for mostly session work in Nashville, for which the engineers and musicians all really liked the sounds, but I have also used the instrument as the only keyboard for several live gigs now. On gigs, I actually like having the speakers turned on, and the other band guys appreciate that I don't have to turn up my onstage amp so much. The weight makes the instrument easy enough to maneuver by myself, though I've found it's easiest to set it on the stand by grabbing it in the middle, not by the ends. I wish Roland had kept the speaker on-off switch (from the FP-4), rather than having to plug in an adapter to the headphones on the back side. The piano sounds are great, as are many of the others. The action is a bit heavy for me, but easy enough to get used to. I wish there were numeric buttons on the panel, to easily access all of the sounds, and a pitch-bend and mod-wheel would be nice. I didn't think there was an expression pedal input when I bought it, but I found that you can re-assign the sostenuto pedal for that purpose. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and Sweetwater really helped get it here quickly.
