Anonymous's review - Roland Fantom G8

The keyboard 88 keys for me as a trained pianist. But I remain on my ide Premire: The S90 ES Yamaha XS8 or I got more! G8 keyboard is too loud and when you play low, it disrupts the Ides.
The screen is a good rev, difficult to want to work on a workstation with a smaller display APRS rgal have this taste.
The sounds are good in all gnral. The ARX extension is simply superb.
I use the ARX-1 is it helps to further the wealth of a mix. Are confident that Roland will make us a collection ARX as we had the SR-JV, the SRX ...

UTILIZATION

Good grip without the manual. The manual, not really read it yet, it will tonne?? (How many musician read the manuals first??) But it looks clear first sight.

everything comes easily under the fingers.
The squenceur, trs good, easy, clear and enjoyable. It does not bug even when it is read!

The arpgiateur volumes is not enough! (Not rich enough, not sufficient grounds for flmard I am of the cot I prfre that of the Motif XS8!

SOUNDS

The piano sounds are good bills, catgories rprtories well.
Trsraliste for some, others a little less, but no "raliste not at all"!

effects, I still try everything, but trs correct, APRS, there are real mastering studios for the top level!

The sounds of winds, strings and piano I like a lot. electric guitar finally sounds that resemble a guitar, for models, it is!

OVERALL OPINION

I have for almost 2 months!

the +: screen, mouse, squenceur
the - 512 MB of RAM for sampling is a bit tight at times
impossible to combine two or more DIFFERENT arpgiateurs mode song
(Well I have not yet Russi, if any solution, I'm interested).
keyboard too loud.
weight, weight and the weight !!!!!!

ratio / price: it is always quite expensive when you have dbourser but it is a good and beautiful product.

if I had the choice again, I will opt more for the G7 (which I wanted to dpart).
Even if the screen is smaller, I have a little lightweight for my pancha supplmentaire Motif XS8 of the way, among other things, the mLAN connection!

I do not 10/10 because it is like any keyboard, but also highlight ngatif point.
