It needs more storage in the basic package, lower price, and more color options.
I am a working musician and I tend to listen to my fellow peers when it comes to sounds and they all love all the sounds except the piano,something is amiss for live application. I much prefer the Korg piano .
This is the best keyboard I have ever played in my whole life. I thought the Triton Studio was good, people need to try this.
This Yamaha is by far one of the most realistic sounding pianos ive played on. It contains many nice effects, a wee-bit heavy though. It is great for the money!!
This is a great keyboard for oing all types of jobs from the studio to live playing. Has many different tones to work with.
Tried one after I saw Stevie Wonder playing one. It truly has the sound and feel that you want.
