ok Dom. The instrument seems very advanced and a far better proposition than this PC Windows stuff built into a keyboard ( I am not even looking at that stuff as it's not what I want), but I still have to make sure that it's what I need.

What I am hoping to get is basically an arranger midi-audio keyboard workstation that, although advanced, will allow me to work quickly enough on my ideas and compositions.

I will have to make a list with a few more questions (didn't I say no more questions,lol)

a full-fledged manual (not just the quick guide) would really help me. Maybe you could pass me the complete pdf manual?

If so, let me know and I'll register on the forums.

hopefully that will make me decide to buy this great instrument.
