Summary: WOW!! It's a good place to start Roland has done it again!! great sounds and backing styles. it is everything i expected and more, from the the feel of the keyboard and it's sensitivity to the easy to read display, and simple recording to a USB memory stick, they have left nothing out on this baby!!, The built in speakers are great and have a great sound, this is a perfect keyboard for the beginner to the studio i give it a triple thumbs up!
Summary: This quality keyboard held some surprizes not apparent in sales description. On the down side it has no ability to remember in midi format songs played on the keyboard so that my plans to make my own midifile songs cannot be accomplished on this keyboard alone. I have looked at various software sequencer packages but can find nothing to replace my ancient Sound Brush SB 55 (since Departed) to enable me to easily record multi timbrel midi in one simple take from the BK5.
