Hi George , thanks for the update .
perhaps you would be kind enough to answer a couple questions for me ?

does it have a good 5/4 style for "take five"

also slow and fast rotary organ sounds and style for such numbers as "whiter shade of pale " Green onions , time is tight ..etc !!

regards ...Giovanni

There could be a Global on/off switch for the lyrics also?......but I'm sure many people will enjoy this new Roland offering , I guess I'll at least try one at Frans Studio next week wink....more to come.

I haven't read the manual, but George mentioned a TV monitor screen. Maybe you could utilize a 7" DVD player or similar. Or Fran could plug it into his Toshiba.

"Soft Thru: Off, Global, Piano

Select “Global” if the
BK-7m should transmit
all MIDI messages it
receives (using its MIDI
OUT socket)."

I found the above in the owners manual. It does have the ability to pass the midi signal through, via the midi out. Good news!

I called my Roland rep and he said there are no lyrics on it's built in screen. I will check out the styles available for take5, etc. when I have time at my store today. There are lots of organs with leslie simulation on board.

Although I very rarely use lyrics on stage when I perform ....that is a nice display unit for whomever would need it.....just another thing to hook up.

I ordered one of these:
http://www.amazon.com/Haier-HLT71-7-Inch-Handheld-LCD/dp/B001E78UQY

If I don't use it with the module, I'll put it in my golf cart and use it for a tv while I wait on that slow group in front of me.
