Considering the limitations of a non-expandable rompler (you can't really model sounds, only combine and apply effects to the sample-based sounds stored in its ROM), this is the keyboard I'm most comfortable with. Perfomance-oriented: lots of buttons for tweaking attack, release, cutoff and resonance, and the Roland X/Y pitch/mod bender which I've grown dependent to. Beautiful: even though more recent models are way more feature-packed, I don't think Roland has made a better looking keyboard ever since. This is a keyboard that manages to look as good as a guitar.
