I looked at all the digital workstations in my price range and although the Roland 2400 can be hooked up to a mouse and screen it did not have the features of the Yamaha. The Roland did not even have an insert on the pre's. It also looked like the Roland needed some extra software and cards to do what the Yamaha does. Not to mention it seemed from what I read that the Roland was difficult to use and their instructions were confusing. I like the idea of using a mouse and screen but the Roland's reviews scared me off. I am not that computer literate. Does anybody have experience with these workstations or opinions about them.
