Released December, 2007
The Pros:Very realistic piano tones, electric and acoustic. Keys have a good weight, are comfortable for those accustomed to real piano keys. Great features and specs for this price range.
The Cons:String ensemble voices are unconvincing, generally sound quite poor.

Very realistic piano tones, electric and acoustic.
Keys have a good weight, are comfortable for those accustomed to real piano keys.
Great features and specs for this price range.
Decent stringed instrument voices--while some are merely passable (guitar), others are excellent (upright bass).
Great sampling abilities--numerous slots for melodic and rhythm-based samples.
USB MIDI functionality allows for two-way MIDI traffic--software can be used to trigger on-board sounds.
Limited arpeggiator--something not often seen at this price point.
String ensemble voices are unconvincing, generally sound quite poor.
