Craig, I'm looking forward to one of your fuller reviews of this keyboard, if you have the time/opportunity to write one. The good news as far as I'm concerned (as someone who simply can't afford this instrument at this time) is that it signals, like the V-Synth, a return on Roland's part to making thoughtful, high-quality, well-built, professional high-end synthesizers, with design goals that solve real-world issues in need of solving for a specific audience (in this case, to sum it up simply: the ability to mix and layer a variety of tones in what some would call a "Performance" but is called more aptly here a "Live Set"). So, it's not a re-hash; it's not dumbed-down; it's well-designed. Period. Let us know when you have further thoughts on the instrument, thanks! Wish I could get my hands on one, oh well; better for the pocketbook that I don't, I'm sure.
Well actually, I need to correct myself. I just found out you can switch the Percussion Tone into being a second Solo Tone instead. So that means you can actually stack ten tones, not nine as stated in the manual.
