I'm a professional keyboard and Piano player. The keybed of this thing it fells ok to me but not great. The Pianos are not the best but you can make it sound better. I really liked the El. pianos, Strings, Pads, Synthesizer and supernatural sounds. All are great! But if you put 3 layers together it starts to slow the polyphony. Touchscreen is fast and good, sampling is easy to use and you can add your own sounds and generate new patches. This is a lightweight keyboard and portable one. But is not good as the $4000. Korg Nautilus is better in my opinion. But for the price I'm happy.

Pianos, Strings, Pads, Synths... All are great. The sampling is so easy to use. You can put your own stuff and generate new patches. This synth is beautiful and portable. In my opinion this is not great as the $3000 Keyboards. But I like it for the price.
