Read my old review.. nothing has changed... except how I want to use it.

After a few years playing the easier to operate E-A7..I had to get use to
the operating system, again.

After I set it up the way I wanted to use it...it will work out fine.

No bells and whistles like on the E-A7, but other features I want..
16 track sequencer, and D-beam for novelty things like drum roll and crash.

I set it up so I do not need any flash drive.. it is there for break music,
on larger jobs.

Compare to E-A7 audio playback has limitations.

My set up, I have 200 sequences with lyrics in the internal memory.
This is the only Roland arranger that does not auto extract the chords (bummer).

I guess I was getting lazy, using the chord read.

I also set up about 15-20 performances .. all have bass and right hand sounds.

Usually play left hand bass and drum pattern.
The performances vary with piano, EP, organ, Jazz guitar etc.

After one day I have a handle on procedures.

Both of my "home boys" showed some interest in dealing for it.. but it look like
I will hang onto it for a while..

My E-A7 is on stage with "Just In Time",

Stu purchased it from me. And I purchased the Prelude from JoAnn.

I bought the Prelude 2009 when they came out, to use in the band,
after a few months I bought the BK5... replacing the Prelude.
Sold the Prelude to JoAnn and she stored it in her closet,
till I bought it back.. still like new.

Fran... I wish you good luck with your new arranger...
A bit different but I know you're going to adapt and use it for your needs ...

Take care

Fran will enjoy it and use it. I heard he goes to nursing homes to pick up old girlfriends he knew in grade school! That's just what I heard...

Interesting trend lately. Donny goes back to Tyros 2...Fran returns to the Prelude. I’m actually contemplating looking for a GW-8 smile. Definitely not a GW-7. Had 2 of those..they were bad😝

Prelude and GW-8 were from Roland Japan, not Roland Europe. I think they are missing all specific Roland Europe arranger sanples (especially saxes) and are based on the Fantom X derivate SonicCell.

I have had a GW 8. Didn’t like it and had a very bad keyfeel. My opinion ofcourse.
