30.07.2014
This keyboard has a great amount of features, it would be nearly perfect if.... the pads weren't as bad as they are, it's really hard to drum consistently. Also, the software which is used to reprogram the presets and select midi messages just does not work properly. I have contacted Roland support and tried different combinations, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, but the best i've ever got is to program just one fader. The sending of sysex data seems to go ok (the program gives no errors) but it only reprograms one slider. Now I am looking for a keyboard that would not be tied to any DAW and could be reprogrammed more reliably (and not reliant on one program).
