Think of it as your own little obedient band- in a- box!.The G-800 is generally a great asset if you prefer to perform alone,whether you want to improvise or prearrange your performance. It could even substitude for a clumsy bassist or a drunken drumer!.I've been playing mine as a one-man band for 3 years and it's never let me down. Although a few people've had problems(I've never had any) with stuck notes, I think that's just a small price to pay considering the 800 is the hands down master of it's class since it's introduction in '96( I consider it a collectable !).I only wish it had the ability to blend different drum sets, editing of accompaniment sounds and no gliches when changing performance sets. Roland attempted to continue the leagacy by launching the G-1000 shortly after, which basically has the same features as the 800 in addition to a somewhat limited sequencer, a zip drive, a taranspose hold button and a few more sounds(?!). Those were just not enough reasons for me to trade in my trusty 800. I won't get into the discreption of the G-800 here..just do like JAN told you; AUDITION IT !.If lost or stolen I'd probably join a band.I paid $2900 cd for mine, which I think is alot of money but if you want the best... forget The Yamaha PSRs, forget the Korg i series, forget Technics..GO Roland G-800 !

I think g800 is a very good workstation, but i have some difficulty to program the user style (and the other).

I think that in general the use of all the capatibility of g 800 are not easy and immediatly.

I have to study very mutch.....for program it.

The tones are very good and the rithms are good. The keyboard if very good too.

Bye bye (excuse my english)

I think that the G-800 is one of the most tragically underrated workstations

of today. It can sound incredibly warm and fat...if you just take your time

and really get into it! (wich you guys at SonicState most clearly haven't) The styles may not be very fun after a while...but its sounds really make up

to that. Dont expect any &quot;Moogesque&quot; sounds out of this one, though. That's

not exactly what it's built for...

(I use the Quasimidi Raven for that. That is also an amazing unit.) In one word - GREAT! Best regards: Andreas Lindahl
