"Quality purchase"
I'm really glad I bought this module! It's a goldmine of great sounds, but it takes a little while to sift through them all! My reason for buying it was to upgrade the soundset from my trusty Yamaha S90 workstation. Whilst it doesn't completely wipe the floor with all of the sounds on board my S90, there are several notable improvements - the organs in particular, sound much more like a Hammond. The string pads, grand piano, electric grand and guitars are noticably better as well. The only minor disappointment was not having access to all the user voice parameters from the LCD display (even if it might have been a bit fiddly). You need to hook it up to a laptop for this.
Musical Background:
Mainly involved with church worship, plus the occasional gig
Musical Style:
Christian, pop, rock'roll, jazz, classical
