OMG...

Shoot me now!

The WORST player on this forum could play circles around that lump playing the cumbia demos. Is this what Roland are reduced to?

Pathetic.

Trust me guys, you can make it sound SO much better than that cabrone...

And Roland... my email is in my profile... give me a call. But only if you want to SELL SOME OF THESE

Otherwise, stick to the guy you already have...

i can not understand roland, unless they intentionally want to show that even a totally not pro player can play a little bit on this instrument too... ;(

yeah, it's pretty poor...

That's the point the guys with the Mediastation were makeing.

Like I have always said,
Online demos really do not tell you much because a relatively good sounding keyboard can be made to sound bad and a relatively bad sounding keyboard can be made to sound good.

I thought you guys might enjoy those I just don't get it..., this is Ed Diaz doing the demo too. The man CAN play, but when he gets on an arranger keyboard all hell breaks loose.

Ed Diaz just also did another Roland Juno Stage sound demo too.., and his playing is much better in that vid.

You almost feel like Roland is intentionally holding back on the arranger demos.., as if someone is saying to them.., "play well, but don't play too well", and at times seems that they really don't want to sell arrangers anymore because they just keep posting weak demos.

Look at the E-80 for example. Roland NEVER went past that one video on their site promoting the E-80. Not ONE Roland Rep video for that arranger on the US site.

****My only problem with Ed Diaz in many of his videos is that he's REALLY heavy handed and some of his patch examples would stand out more if he had a little more expression in it.., and laid back a bit on those heavy hands. You guys should check out his new Juno Stage demos where he's playing organ patches. He goes APE on those keys

Exactly Donny! I said that when the GW-8 demos were first coming out. Where the heck is Dr. Scott Tibbs.., and why is he not doing some of these demos??? He did a great GW-7 video. Dr. Tibbs is a really good player.

Also.., where is Chris Halon?? He did some good G-70 videos a while back. Is Roland losing their good demo reps?
