I think that alone is a hard pass for a gigging arranger player .....


Diki, I might agree IF IT WERE TRUE. Hey Bro, you're spreading more dis-information than Fox News smile.

I think I'll spring for the e50. I will take that beautiful piano and 88 slab, something I've not had for quite a while. All else will be a blast, if for nothing else. My Korg serves me 100%.

I respect everyone's views on the product. Thanks to Chas for the links too smile

OK, more ahead.............

I listened to and downloaded (6) new style banks - about 6 - 8 styles each. A lot are just plain awesome. I suppose we are really relying on Roland to get the balances correct. Yes, you can control the master and style volumes separately, but not the style itself. Not gonna deter me. Excited to try this thing out!

Zuki, if I understand you correctly, you CAN control the style to a degree. With one button push you can change the function of the mod wheels and mod wheel two will control the volume of the style except for the drums and bass (which you can still control with the slider). All the way back and you'll get nothing but drums and bass. Turn off accompaniment and you get only the drums of the style. There is also a menu item to balance the parts. Actually, a very convenient feature. I think you'll enjoy this board.

Great. Now comes the gut-wrenching, nearly unbearable pain of ANTICIPATION until it actually arrives on your doorstep smile smile. Just take a cold shower smile.

Zuki, hope that stand is adjustable so the (stand) feet don't interfere with your optimum position for the sustain pedal.

Gonna try to stack a 4X61 and the e5O, for studio play and recording. If it doesn't work, I'll dump the stand and get the 50 furniture stand with 3 pedals (very expensive IMO). Have a good weekend. Zuki

But you can’t import any legacy Roland styles, right? Most of us who have had Roland arrangers (and everyone else with access to the huge libraries of older styles) would consider that being unable to import THOSE is what constitutes a closed system…

I merely looked at Roland’s own spec page and, under styles, there’s no asteroid and a description about style import… I regret I didn’t specify the difference between open style import and being forced to pay for curated packs of styles you may or may not like.

But, to be pedantic, it is still true there’s no open ‘style import’ (which is what most ARRANGER PLAYERS would consider the term means). Just paid import of packs that include styles you have no decision in their selection.
