    Is the Vocoder important to you?

    For the basics you can't go wrong with most Roland products. Used JV and XV modules can be found for under $500, keyboards for slightly more. Korg stuff is also nice. In this day and age you can get lots of power for small $$$ by getting softsynths, and there's an incredible number of quality choices.

    No matter if you go virtual or hardware, if you learn to program there's almost nothing you can't do. When I was a touring musician in the late '80's & early '90's I was using just an ASR-10, a U220 and my trusty DX-7. I programmed the hell out of them and the guys with the all latest toys oohed and aahed over my sounds.

    Aye it has the bass pedals. :) I haven't had a chance to play it yet though, so I don't know about the sound. I have seen it in the flesh though and it's in really good shape.
    When I get it delivered I will be posting up about it. All I know at the moment is it's a Kawai and it looks exactly like that one in the photo. I'm excited. :p
