I liked this board, but certainly not for the professional.

I had one of these. Nice board and nice sounds, but not enough guts in the style and playback sections. It's a very good entry board, but that's it. Unfortunately, other manufacturers have more to offer in its price range.

Agreed but all I'm saying is it sounds good without spending big $$$$$ using it as a "home keyboard" which many arrangers are touted to be or so called "pro" is irrelevant....also being a great player like eg: Ralf is what its all about & is MOST Important..

Definitely, Donny. The e09 has some very good features and if you are satisfied with A/B as opposed to A/B/C/D in the style section it's OK. Roland tries to compensate by having drum/bass, small combo and full band variations too. As I said, it's a nice board with very good sounds.

Sometimes all the new fan-dangled gadgets & features really aren't needed at all. Heck I'm still using a "Home Arranger" on stage every night right? & I dont even put black tape over the brand name either

Second Youtube demo is E50, right?

For the price, that's a pretty good sounding arranger, IMO (if you can find one!)... Much of the G70's strengths, at a fraction of the price (and still in production ).

Terrible keybed, and I MEAN terrible!!!

Also sounds pretty ordinary through a PA.
