Must have for the gigging keyboardist
By: Daryl from Westport, In. U.S.A
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I like the Integra 7 for two main reasons:
It has great sounds, with individual FX on each channel. When you select an instrument for layering, it sounds exactly like it is supposed to.
The menu is very user friendly. I can make changes quickly on the fly during rehearsals. I actually prefer making changes right on the module, vs the ipad editor or the PC editor. It's quicker.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Ease of Use
How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player?
Very friendly. I use two keyboards through a midi merger to plays sounds on two channles. I connect an Ipad to the usb connection via the camera connection kit and use Yamaha's Set List Manager app to quckly change Studio Sets at gigs.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
6000 patches in this thing! If you can't find it, you don't need it! Okay, slight exaggeration, but you get the idea. I do use a Hammond XK1 for my B3 sound.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
Very clean sound. I plug my hammond into the rear inputs, and my ipad into the front inputs, for playing break music.
I only use up two Channels on the mixing board. BTW, the XLR outputs save having to use a DI box!
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I am very pleased. I can leave my keyboards in the trailer and just carry in my Intgra into rehearsals and trigger it with any midi keyboard.
