Just got my Roland E-86! I graduated from from yamaha psr-60. I play by chords! Dont know how to use the sequencer yet! Just using the piano only! Got the roland e86 for $100! Now somebody teach me how to use this thing! It doesnt comes with the Manual! But love it so far. it has a built in speakers!
I used to have that one 16 years ago when it came out of the market in Korea. It was so expensive I have to pay it by installment. And that's one heavy keyboard. It weighs 15 kilos.
That's the reason i sold it. I used to have 2 gigs a night. And it wears me out carrying it from place to place. I have to replace it with a lighter one coz i can't afford to buy another one.
That keyboard should always be in one place. It's not advisable to use it if you transfer from gig to gig a night. Except if someone is carrying it for you.
But that's a nice keyboard and you got a fair trade for $100. Try to study its features and you'll enjoy the benefits of it. I wasn't able to study all of its features even if i had the manual. It's so complicated I don't want to go that far. It has a built in floppy drive where you can play your midi files. But if i were you, play manually. Don't depend on the sequencer.
Good luck bro!
