I have had the pleasure of playing this KB a few days now .... It excells in all categories!!! I sold my PA1xpro that I had for a year and I am not sorry ... No.. Not one bit!!!
The vocal processor is awsome.
The styles flow from Variation 1 - 4 flawlessly!
The fills are very natural and musical.
Midi files ... could not be easier!! And they sound great!!

Hello JCkeeys. Nice to know that I'm not the only one here(almost) that appreciates the G-70! I've owned it for over a month now and I'm very pleased with it. Very musical and easy to use!

Dear JC;

Are you stating that the G-70s vocal processor is better the the Tc-helicon unit in the Pa1x? How do you compare and contrast them in terms of ease of use naturalness/accuracy in harmonies & sound quality that it produces. Does it just have a 1/4" Rca out for vocals, or does it also contain an XLR out?

Further, with regards to the midi files--do the same midi files sound better on the G-70 then the Pa1x?

Thanks
Regards;
BN

JCkeeys & Turnip: Great to hear that both you guys LOVE your Roland G-70 keyboards. I just read Keyboard Magazine's review (May 2005) by Stephen Fortner and he appears to concur. I'm now really looking forward to the opportunity to test drive the G-70 myself soon (still not available here in Northern California). Not only have I heard that the G-70's keyfeel the best of of any arranger, but I'm really impressed with the Roland Fantom's Acoustic piano patches, of which I believe is included on the G-70 as well. I'm also keeping my hopes up that with Chris Halon (former Technics kb artist & style designer) now working for Roland, he'll be able to use his influence to finally get Roland to include advanced 'rootless chord voicing' recognition on the G-70 too.

I'm really looking forward to hearing music produced by you guys on the G-70.

Scott

It seems G-70 is going to be the king in arranger market (although Tyros may be the most popular).
It would be a good choice from Roland if they make a new 61 keys keyboard based in G-70. There is a great market for; it would compete with PSR-3000 but with a far better keybed (key feel, key size).

Congrats on the G70, there are a some things that I think should be added to the G70.
That can be done by OS.

Does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of midi files that can be stored in the song file folder, regardless of memory?

JC & Turnip: Thanks for your posts on the G70. Glad to hear you are both pleased. The sounds from the styles posted a while back were great to my ears. Please continue to give the rest of us feedback. I plan to upgrade from my Yammie PSR-2000 sometime in the future and I have no preconceived notions. I just want a great arranger keyboard to support my songwriting activities and for preparing demos to submit to publishers, etc. Let us hear the negative as well as the positive. Thanks, RICE

Roland says the g70 has variations and also fill-ins. What's a fill-in?

A fill-in is a short passage that takes you more 'smoothly' from a variation to the other (if you want).
