    Awesome Arranger

    I was always of the view that these arranger things made no sense and didn't really understand how this type of keyboard could really benefit me. I saw them as mediocre to poor at best and targeted toward beginners only.

    I mainly use macbook pro running logic in conjunction with a Kurzweil PC3, Waldor blofeld, and Elektron monomachine. I have several other keyboards that are older or very specialized and don't use them as much.

    This is my first arranger and a fantastic one, it truly complements what I have extremely well. The sounds are very good and the styles cover a broad range including oriental. I am more accustomed to workstations & synths and although those offer greater depth in waveform manipulation I.e. creating a specific unique sound, this board has an immediacy about it that makes it easy to just want to play. This board has a great interface that is simple to learn and navigate. I have a total of 12 keyboards and this is by far the easiest and most accessible for getting ideas down quickly. I especially like the fact that styles, midis etc. can be revoiced easily and pan/gain/effects changes are at your fingertips (a computer is only in the way in this case when I am just brainstorming). The really unusual feature and a major reason why I bought it was the scale tuning capability. Now I can create something very different quickly and learn what works and what doesn't in that process - believe me this throws an entire new spin on everything and makes me rethink what I already have learned musically. I am into ambient, electronica, and experimental type music. so this complements my other hardware.

    Is it the best arranger - probably not for most people, but for those looking for something that gives them immediacy and an alternative perspective on creative music composition, this it it!

    This is an amazing keyboard, it comes loaded with almost everything needed to start right away and out of the box, and yet still can buy additional expansion packs to suit your needs. I bought the oriental pack and I am still learning about this keyboard it has so many mind-blowing features. I have another Roland keyboard which is good but this one is by far more complete!
