The last keyboard I had access to was a PSR-180. What an upgrade! For my purposes as an enterprising composer, this has everything I need. I've never needed more than the 16 tracks the recording feature has offered. A couple of things could have been a lot better though. The Quantize feature needs some refining (like being able to quantize different measures for different sizes, etc.) The recording feature could be a lot more feature-laden (like allowing loop record in song mode instead of just style mode, and having the punch in/out features work properly). Overall though, I am very satisfied with this keyboard.

Comments About the Sounds:
Generally sounds very good. Could use more band type instruments. Plenty of pad/lead voices. A little disappointed with percussion (lack of any large concert bass drum sound.)

(Thanks to Jeff Evans for this info.)
