This synth can bleuffant is known. It certainly has its faults, but has so far sounds I do not find in my XS7. The trumpet, for example I put on two pieces, we all believe it is a true. Good piano sounds not bad, still the same defect in serious but great in the treble octaves too low to medium. I am very demanding on the piano sounds that's why. For performance, it is not obvious to find with the manual, I really struggled, and have used for years I still struggle to use it without the manual. It is not at all intuitive.
The weight is happiness. Arpegiator mode for now I prefer it to XS. Amazing is not it? effects in real time also!
A jewel on the cheap, "that will drive up the coast!



Yes yes yes

88 keys, light touch with velocity, pitch bend with a modulation, 4 assignable knobs, and two other non-assignable knob but send messages noon outside (I said all this because I use this synth as a master keyboard).


Sounds not used, so they are not edited.


I quickly zapped the sound but I do not use them as master keyboard use only. That said, I found no sounds terrible (at least, it was not worth a JV1080 for example).


I use this synth makes keyboard control to control my VST Forte on repeating and live. Why is this synth? ::: It's the only market that is 88 light touch, with some sounds (in case of technical failure live with my vst is a spare) with a weight below 10 pounds, and with some assignable pots. in addition, it has rather a good face.

At the same time I do it again the same choice. I sold this synth because I just bought a CLAVIA NORD STAGE 88. This synth is no before and it should be noted that it is 18kg (aie!) And is 2700 euro, so it's not the same budget!

See the first notice.


If I really had to find a point ngatif, it would be the registration of Settings, but that's because I'm up Submitted happy sounds as they are, without change, so I do not have much practice the above.


It is the quality of sounds that convinced me to buy it.


Beautiful lightweight synth touch, sounds good even trs good (my opinion), many effects such as rotary, which can be ordered with the knobs, very practical.
Manuel satisfactory.
I would do such a choice (700 Used with great cover).
Note: You can read the opinion of the RS5, which differ in appearance from RS9 by the keyboard.
