Roland FA08-Review so far

DarrinB, 07.03.2015
Only had the unit one week but here are my thoughts.
I have never used a workstation before I've always used software, but I find it easier to use and navigate than say logic.
The menu system is well laid out and easy to follow. Assigning pitch bends to different parts of the keyboard is so easy.
The sounds are fantastic and easy to manipulate.
The keyboard is really nice to play, feels as good as my Korg M3.
The only down side I have found is that the legend on the keyboard, IE the writing telling you what each function is virtually impossible to read in any light. Even in my studio which well lit I find if you don't look at it at the right angle you cannot see anything. But I will work my way around that because the keyboard is great, well worth the money

Update
Had the keyboard a year now. It has had three feels, the keyboard twice a clicking and knocking sound and the jog wheel catches when rotating. Concerned about the build quality. Have not taken the keyboard out of the studio and these faults have developed. Not certain how it would be for gigging

Great thing!

Nils aus U., 26.03.2016
I've been using the FA-08 for over 1.5 years and I'm using it mainly at home for piano playing, as a sequencer for practicing and composing, as well as on stage for jam sessions and jazz gigs.

Am still satisfied and would buy the device again!

Here the advantages and disadvantages:

Sound:

+ Super Acoustic Piano + Double Bass Sound
+ Good sound at Drumset, EBass, SynthBass, EPiano, Strings, Synth / Lead, Pads, Accordion and Guitars
+ Great sound diversity and possibility to adapt
+ Very flexible layer and split capabilities
+ Sound overall tuned and sounds very professional on the hifi system
- cuts in live sound; Here, for example, the EPiano lacks a certain brilliancy
- Weak organ and Leslie sound, with fan Leslie simulation is half way, but far away from Hammond SK1 (IMHO best) or North (still very good)
- Bad wind sounds
- Filter + Resonance controls for synth sounds can kill the speakers, here certain deep and high frequencies react much too extreme
- Poor polyphony: eg EPiano + Pad already provides for missing tones if you make some sounds sound and new ones, even more problems with the whole sequencer with drumset and all the drums

Keyboard:

+ Great gameplay, suitable for a very dynamic piano playing
+ Stays stable, No plastic cracking as with some competing products
- Slow: fast repetition of a key is only possible to a limited extent
- Key pressure taps slightly loudly
- Very slight delay of the sound (minimal, does not really bother me)

Service:

+ Nice big display, clear effect routing, quick selection of sounds within a studio set via number buttons
+ Nice sequencer with loop, cut / copy
- No tension control
- Constant shift-key depression

Software / Support / Updates:

- With me is the device or the software already frozen and some work with Sequencer was lost
- annoying bugs like Sequencer jumps always to beginning after eg delete a bar
- Bad Roland Support: There is little comment on bugs / errors. There are hardly any software updates
