Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
excellent build and key action. feels solid. the gooseneck mic is high quality as well.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
not too into the vocoder but it's nice to have. the big feature is by far the onboard stock sounds and patterns. good stuff.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
it's pretty easy to use but I would have liked a USB connection and some sort of sound editor. I'd rather edit on the computer than on a tiny lcd screen. also w/ a USB you could transfer and save sounds more readily. this is the biggest short coming of the keyboard. I was kinda suprised it did'nt have USB but I bought it anyway.
How is the tone?
the sounds are great. the drums are ok but not phenomenal.you could find use out of some of them though. the analog sounds are warm and rich not really "dirty" though. kinda clean almost too much. but you can add effects onboard or thru your daw.
Was this item an overall good value?
I got an extremely good deal on a new one (paid $225 at a competitor). but stikll a good value at $400. some places have instant rebates. anyway it's got great sounds and I have yet to load the others from the micron but will soon.
