Pristine Audio Quality and a great feel

  • Summary: I have been performing with Yamaha keyboards for years. After losing an expensive weighted board on a flight, I had resorted to simpler, less expensive although nice sounding instruments and always appreciated the consistently solid sound sets for Yamaha's keyboards. My staple sounds are piano-based with some strings, clav and organs thrown in on occasion. I also rely on splitting the keyboard into zones for bass/piano combos when needed.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: The best thing about this axe is the keyboard feel. It is the best in the industry. The S6 piano sound is very subtle, but doesn't have the growly bass that I like.

Great Hammonds, Rhodes, strings (I love the phase string). Some usable synth leads.
  • Pros: Excellent Organs Etc, Responsive / Good Action, Very Good Piano Sound, Well constructed
  • Cons: Bad Display, Heavy

An einem Synthesizer, der besonders für den Live-Einsatz gedacht ist, müsste man doch auch ohne PC-Editor an den Sounds schrauben können. Dabei geht es nichtmal um Hüllkurven oder LFOs, sondern z.B.
