Yes, it's realy amazing aranger workstation, but i am desperate right now because i just found serious bug in sw ver. 1.07. In seqencer mode, i select "erase" rec mode, in owner manual writes that function erases only notes from point you recording to point you stop recording, but IT ERASES ALL FORM THE BEGINING OF A SONG !

I had G-1000 for almost two years. It is very good and efficient keyboard. It has good sounds and styles. The most original thing is a built-in 100 Mb ZIP drive for storing data. And also a 25-PIN Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) connector for extension. The only thing to criticize is its size and weight. So I prefer its younger brother, so called EM-2000. It´s a blue, smaller (just five octave), with built-in speakers. I´m very satisfied with it. I recommend that kind of synth to all proffesional keyboard players for live performace. And it´s also very appropriate to work in studio.

The G-1000 is an honest, amazing, workhorse of a SYNTHESIZER as well as a convenient workstation. Anyone who composes professionally and wants thousands of pre-sets at their fingertips will be in heaven. Easy to use, I crept around the controls and keyboards without any manual (which the dealer had to get from Roland, so I had no choice). This is NOT a difficult synth to use. It kept my lead guitarist fully entertained while I was out of the studio. When I came back, he had arranged several of my songs ALL BY HIMSELF!!! including drum tracks, bass lines, guitar solo, melody lines...WOW!!! It paid for itself right them and there. There is no trickery to this beast. It's very straightforward. If you can type on a computer and use the Internet, you can use this synthesizer. It is a full-sized piece of gear, so plan accordingly if you're going to haul it around. I bought it for my home studio and couldn't be happier. And the sounds!!! They are all EXCELLENT!!!

The G-1000 is the best arranger keyboard on the market. As the successor to the G-800, they have fixed all of the bugs, and added some really useful new features. For me, the best bit about the G-1000 is the built-in Iomega Zip drive, which allows near instant loading of your SMF, and music style data. The new styles have a very contemporary feel. The touch of the weighted keyboard is generally excellent, and the piano sounds are authentic and real.

On the minus side I would criticize the rather lightweight sequence editing facilities. YOU can access all the critical parameters of an SMF in real-time using the "song header edit" facility, but there is no event editing capability.

It is a big beast of a thing as well, and the trouble is that the five-octave version (the EM-2000) has built-in speakers, so is almost as bulky to carry around. You'll need a big car to cart this thing to a gig.

But on the whole though, the G-1000 blows similarly priced rivals away.
