HI ALL,
Who else is getting or has a Roland E 50, 60, or 80?
Let's make this forum our own. No body else is using it so we can claim it for our axes.
I am getting one on Thursday delivery. Graham above post sez he is getting one. I got an email from Alex Green and he has the E 50 or 60 ? already. Maybe we can get Diki to post here as he has had an e 80 for some time.
LETS JUST DO IT

Actually, I have a G70 (replaced my old G1000)....

But if Roland add back the Chord Sequencer to the NEXT G-series, I may trade up, if not, it is hopefully going to last as long as my G1000 (eight years of constant gigging!)....

And while I'm going to continue my posting at the main SZ forum, for discussion with arranger users of ALL persuasions, the http://www.roland-arranger.com site pretty much covers all my Roland needs for right now. I'll drop in from time to time, but the file-hosting and established membership of the re-named Danish G70 site (still 100% in English!) will continue to be my main first stop for Roland information.

Diki. I have been reading the http://www.roland-arranger.com every day for a couple of months and you are doing a good job there.

As Bebop stated I get an E80 (all being well)tomorrow so i'm all ears and willing to inhale as much info as possible about the Roland Arrangers.

Hi Graham.
Being a previous PA800 and E80 owner I think you will definitely like the E80 and get more out of this than the Korg
If you do fancy going for one of the expansion boards I didn't think the SRG-01 offered many good sounds. I have heard the latest piano board and brass in action and those 2 were far better. There's certainly enough expansions, styles and registrations out there for the E80 to keep you happy for many months to come.

I guess I had Diki and Craig mixed up. Craig had the E 80. Diki has the G 70.
Actually I hope that both of you guys will hang around this Roland forum and help us newbies develope our learning curves. You will be much appreciated.
I am reading the manual now and getting more excited by the page. The keyboard is due in on thursday.
I also have a Roland JV 1080 with 4 cards added to it. I wonder if it will work ok with the E 80. It hasn't been even turned on in a couple few years.
I have heard the piano on that insert card for the E 80. It is awesome. I will be buying it.
Someone please tell me about the memory cards we will need for this board.
I have lots of sd cards from the Technics keyboards and lots of thumb drives for the Yam keyboards, but what are these different ones that the Roland wants?
Best to all
Bebop

Craig. I know you are moving your E80 on but I do appreciate giving me encouragement towards the E80.
A also hope the Kawai Piano you will be shortly getting rings your bell or pushes your buttons...Ha!!!

Hi Graham.

I've heard the Kawai before purchasing it as well as the Yamaha digital range which sounded more like the Tyros 1 with piano keys, so it is definitely what I am looking for. The fitted CDRW and 16 track multi recorder will also come in handy.

The problem when I part exchanged the SD1 and G1000 for the PA800 (then E80) was I didn't hear those before swapping over.
There are no large music shops near me as you know, so sometimes it's pot luck before buying, but it's all worked out in the end.

I am quite happy using the VST side of things for recording, I've got loads of them and the sounds they offer are certainly equal if not better than any arranger or synth you can purchase. VST's are also far cheaper. It was a pity the Wersi couldn't integrate these to work correctly.

As for the piano, I am now giving music lessons again so this will come in very handy for people to come to me instead of myself having to travel to them.

Strong winds blowing from the Roland direction...There has been a surge of Roland arranger interest at SZ..Finally, most of us have gotten away from the hype from other manufacturers...We have listened to some of our SZ pro's recordings, using a variety of brands..and we have noticed for the most part, the excellence of the Roland sounds..

I think if their was a truth poll taken here, we would see a surprising result...Even some die hard Yamaha and Korg people are showing interest in Roland arrangers..
