Yes they are. I was listening yesterday to some recordings of myself that I made using it and it blew me away. Even makes ME sound good.
I had that Edirol controller totally programmed to use with the BK7m too.
I tried BK9 for 3 weeks and it was even better, but many of the same problems as far as peripheral gear needed. PLUS, Roland still does not have an effective Break/fill, which I use a lot.
I'm looking forward to getting the new Ketron, and I love the PA900, but wouldn't mind having a BK9 just for kicks. Not gonna happen here but I think one could set up the BK9 with an Ipad and have a killer rig.
I'm just at the point where I demand that everything be in one package. I'm basically playing every Friday and Saturday, and don't leave my gear set up all the time like I used to do, so quicker and simpler is the goal.
I think with the SD7 I'll just have the keyboard, stand, two mics and two Bose Compacts--no mixer, laptop, etc., needed. I seem to often need a guest mic and hate to run it directly to the Bose with no effects, so the second input on SD7 should solve that problem. We'll see!

Side note: I had a guy wanting to sing a song for his girlfriend last week, and so I said sure, let me plug in a mic for you. He said, "oh I can just use yours". He had a runny nose and was coughing every other breath. I said "no, it will only take a few seconds and I wouldn't want to give you my cold!"
Most people don't understand but using my mic is too much like kissing me on the mouth!

I'm eager to hear more when you get the SD7 also Don,.......
secondly, why hasn't Ketron posted MORE Video demos aside from Musikmesse showing us MORE of the features of the SD7? ......this worries me at this time but that could change also..this is marketing 101......show the people your product and if it is good enough they will buy it in droves,.....I'm glad I didn't jump the gun on the SD7 & will be in a holding pattern until I am sure what it really can do for my needs or not. I wish you luck.

smile To put this in perspective, think about all the folks who go to karaoke bars and use the same mic as everyone else, all night long. UGH! My sister and brother in law are always asking me to join them at the local American Legion on Friday nights when they have Karaoke, and I turn them down - EVERY TIME! After a couple years, they finally stopped asking.

I keep a container of sterilizing wipes in my van at all times. Every time I leave a public place, grocery store, etc..., places where I have to touch something that every person in the store touched, I wipe my hands with the wipes. You would be amazed at how this has decreased the number of colds I've experienced every year. Probably the nastiest thing we touch during our daily lives is door handles, and the handles of cold boxes in grocery stores. When I worked for BJ's Wholesale Club many years ago, I asked the manager if those handles ever get wiped with disinfectant? His response was "Why?" I guess I must have made a point to him, because after our conversation they began wiping the cold box fronts once a week.

Good move, Don,

You are so right. I provide two mics for my Karaoke shows, and am wiping them down all the time. Even with that, some singers "eat the mic" even though I provide ample headroom. It makes me cringe every time.

Here's the translation of Taike's message, which makes no sense to me.
