I have owned a T-1 for many years.... this is an excellent music instrument and synth workstation and master controller. For its time... it was way ahead. The playability of the keybed is very musical. There is a large selection of sampled sounds... you can combine into combis. The factory presets have some very interesting and unique patches... I still use today! Very heavy... but built tough. I had to replace internal battery... that's it so far. Lots of 3rd party sounds availalble (floppy drive!). The 8 track sequencer works well, and easy to program basic songs. Great board.. wish they still build the keys this way!

I *so* want another one of these boards. They just don’t make boards this good anymore, and I want a spare in case something happens to this one. The more I think of it, the more I'd rather have a Motif module and play the T1. I just love the way the thing feels: the action, to me, is better than any board I've ever played: it feels, literally, like a piano.

The sounds are pretty 80's, though... PCM piano stil works well, though.

The thing is going for $600-800 everywhere I look, *IF* you're lucky enough to even find one. They are rare and people hold onto them like grim death.

If you ever manage to get your hands on one, trust me, for a real pianist, it's the closest you can get to having a Baldwin grand in your bedroom. And it's got room to stack other stuff on top of it, something the manufacturers have long since abandoned (I don’t get that). I don’t need a bulky double stand, just set the Alesis QS8 right on top.

Bought my T1 in 1991 and swapped the joystick for mod wheels..

been a great unit for me.. although its taken the best years out of my back..

I was in a trio, where the T1 was the drummer, bass player, horn section and even the lightman.... (midi light board)

Its been great but now i find it too heavy as well... Also... some of my buttons dont work unless you really PRESS on them... any suggestions on repairing???

Also.. if anyone would like to exchange sequences.. I've got a great library...

Also... Does anyone know how to link it with cakewALK or other softare... to remap the drum kits.. etc.... just getting into that now...

I tried out the new Triton Studio... LOVED the organ sounds and sequencer.. but the PIANO sound on my T1 Kicked the Tritons Ass.... I think my next baord will be the Motiff... But Im gonna hang on to my T1

Till now i used it on the road. Then you feel - with a flightcase - that this is more than a synth. This machine is now a little outdated but it still rocks. It plays very well and is an excellent masterkeyboard (2 x Midi). You really can load some small samples from disk. After using it for more than 8 years it never let me down !

I'm the same guy who posted the weight question yesterday, then I realized this site is for *reviews*. I've been in Japan for many years, and was fortunate that I always got to play real pianos, usually good ones. I've had the T1 for home use and sequencing for 10 years, and when I have, on occasion, played someone else's keyboard, I never liked the touch as well as the T1, so I give it a high rating. Now I find a need for a more portable keyboard for gigs, which is why I"m interested in comparing weights . . .
