General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love this thing, thaks to a music store about 2 hours away from my home, I went there and demo'd this before making my decision, I also demo'd Kronos and roland. I have a Yamaha Motif Classic 8, and never felt the need to upgrade because the classic was nice....What grabbed my attention was the updates to the Firewire option and the Flash Board, where you can store your own sounds. This Keyboard is nice! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I think this product is great quality and i will probably have this for many many years to come...Works with different genres. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? When demoing the product, I made modifications to sounds and used the sequencer and built a performance without reading the manual, but that may be because they made it alot like the motif Classic. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The Flash is the beast! 128 MB onboard Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? Wonderful Motif! Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? The best feel of all time....Love the 8 sliders! Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I think this board has all you need and the price point is great if you plan to keep it for a long time. I think it is more for Gospel/Jazz/R&B/Funk
exciting instrument!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? good quality, you will not regret if you get it. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? 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? So easy if you play it live, no learning curve in the voice mode, there is a learning curve if you want to record, sequence, and use it as studio. Sound How is the tone? it's not a feature but, I thing the best are the quality of the sounds. Value Was this item an overall good value? great value!
