Sounds and feels great. Fits in my trunk.

This little ax has converted me from a Yamaha keyboard fan. Sounds great; feels great; and it's not a chore to lift it into my car trunk, where it fits nicely.

Perfect for the Road

The very first keyboard I owned was a Roland RD 100. It was a graduation gift, but I can remember not being truly satisfied with the sounds on that keyboard so I quickly upgraded to a Kurzweil PC88 when i got the chance and have had that board for the past 14yrs. I've recently been able to upgrade my gigging set up and I wanted to go as portable as possible. I saw this board and let me say that I am 200% glad that I made this purchase. It is perfect for the road. Fits in the trunk or back seat of a small car easily and it only has the sounds you need to cover most gigs (I personally could do without the clav, but that's just me). If you truly wanted more sounds you can hook up your laptop to it and use it as a controller. The feel of the keys is pretty good, they do feel like piano keys. The action is similar to an upright piano in my opinion. I don't think that there are many keyboards that come close to imitating the action of a grand piano. Sorry I'm a purist when it comes to that, but for a gig, this is truly a very good option. I do think that it would have been cool if Roland could have put the controls above the keys instead of at the left of the board, but I'm sure they have their reasons for not doing it. That's about the only thing that I've had to really adjust to. I was also hoping that it would be a little lighter than 28lbs. I've got a Casio CDP 100 that's 88keys and it's 4lbs lighter than this, and the keys and action are about the same. I'm not complaining, the RD64 is still much lighter that the RD100 or Kurzweil PC88. Sweetwater is awesome!! I ordered this board and got it in time to play a gig with it, so I was able to put it through it's paces in a live setting, and I wasn't disappointed. Thank you Sweetwater!!! If you are looking for a portable, lightweight board for the road then this is an option worth considering. At this price point, it is also hard to pass on it.

Unique sound, convenient size

I received my RD-64 a few weeks ago, and I'm generally happy with it. All of the sounds are excellent, but the piano sound is worthy of discussion. This is appreciably different from that of a high-quality sample. The Roland is richer, fatter and punchier, but there is a SLIGHTLY noticeable digital quality (perhaps 0.1% of the total sound). In other words, it's better for colorful styles and instrument combinations than for 100% natural-sounding solo work. The 64-key size is perfect, because 88-key pianos are hard to squeeze into a car and even harder to fit on stage. The RD-64 has a serious omission, though; there is no MIDI in for using the instrument as a sound source in the studio. You can always play the part in via audio, of course, but this makes it impossible to correct mistakes. It is a maddening deficiency in an otherwise highly useful product.

Roland RD-64

Great concept for a compact hammer action piano. Action feels good and on board sounds are usable. There are a couple of major issues when using as a controller. In piano mode you can use as a controller along with the internal voices, however, FC1 and FC2 cannot be changed from the default soft and sostenuto settings. In controller mode you are able to change these settings but lose the on board sounds. Hope this can be changed with an update.
