great live performance board

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this board covers all the bases very well, ...pianos, electric pianos (i.e., rhodes), strings, pads, basses, brass, reed instruments. pretty much everything is top notch quality. reacts well to playing, a lot of the sounds change timbre according to how hard you hit the notes. if you want just a simple board which has decent bread and butter sounds and has all the essentials for live performance, like saving your setups, layering, splitting, etc, then this is the board to get.

Got a lot more than what I paid for...

By Kevin-Z2M-V

from Puerto Rico

Before buying the Roland RS-50, I had a Yamaha S03, that I bought about two years ago. I was satisfied with it mostly because there was nothing else out there in the same approximate price range. Then I found the Roland RS-50 At first I was very apprehensive, mostly because I read some reviews that talked about the lack in quality. I was still interested cause I have heard and played Roland synths before. I purchased it. THIS KEYBOARD IS NOT RELATED TO THE RS-5 IN ANY WAY. IT HAS AN ENTIRELY NEW SOUND ENGINE. While I was waiting for it to arrive I went to the Roland site and took the interactive tour on the RS-70 which has the same sound engine as the RS-50. There is no way that this keyboard will not get at least a 9.3 in quality. The patches (sounds) are superb, expressive, well crafted as well as correctly balanced for external amplification. For all those who criticize the quality of the patches, especially the acoustic pianos, you guys need to remember that the expressiveness of the sounds will be dependent and directly affected by the amplification you use. If you want to hear the quality to the max you need good amplification. Something that bothered me about my Yamaha keyboard was the keys. They felt extremely cheap. That is definitely not the case with the RS-50. They feel solid and well built. This is a well rounded synth with everything you need to be admired as an excellent musician.

A nice introduction to the world of synths

By kip-A6okQ

from Israel

features - more than 500 sounds, variety of effects & semi programable knobs. still hard to modify some sounds while performing. for example, if you have selected one of the effects & started modifying it, in order to change it will have to leaf through the entire range of parameters. annoying. still, for a total noob, it's good to know how chorus, delays, flanger and such *should* sound.quality - synths, pianos, strings, organs, keys & pads are convincing and qualitative. however, they shouldve worked more on the guitars & brass, or simply replaced them with more synth sounds. that couldve been smart.value - well, although this is a very strong and nice sounding peace of equipment, its not for pros. spent this kind of money when you know what sound you are looking for. overall - probably the best introduction to the world of synths. if you aready know what youre looking for, go straight to Korg/Alesis section.

Boring same old syth sounds

By Adam-Had'em

from Mission Viejo, CA

I upgraded my old Roland JV-80 to the RS-50 thinking I would be getting so much more inthe way of sound quality and variations... NOT!


just bought and i love the sound and splits

By zachiery26

from oak harbor, wa

better then portable hands down


Good Sound. Great effects. Poor housing though.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is an excellent keyboard for under 1 thousand dollars. There are a lot of effects to play around with. I like that you can't create your own combinations and store them in the same area so you won't have to jump all over to get to the sound you want.
