I prefer the keyboard though because of the range of sounds, etc, though nothing beats a real piano in terms of quality of the piano sound (Unless you pay like 2 grand on a synthersizor) I used to learn it with a teacher and that, but I find picking up stuff like that, not hard, but I don't pick it up... I had a teacher for two years, then she left and I was on grade 3 I think it was (learnt the pieces from memory so didn't read most of the time), and then I went to another after her, and she basically said "you haven't learnt anything then. You can't even read the notes on the pages yet without counting through the rhymes", and wondered how I ever got to grade 3, and sent me back to 1 again and I'm like that with the Times Tables too, hehe, things like sequencing don't stay without having to go through the whole lot, so you can't say to me whats a number x by a number, without me having to go all the wya through that table first... so i basically gave up because that teacher left as well after a few months. Anyway, now you all think I'm dumb, I do compose my own music, and know my way around the keyboard even though I can't exactly read music. So i cna create some reaslly good stuff by layering etc, which I do on my fantastic: Yamaha PSR350... its alright, has a floppy disc etcc and contains the almighty XG synth wich gives it over 600 sounds, so not bad I am looking to buy a 2 1/2 grand keyboard though when I get the loan through from my uni: Yamaha Tyros 2 I think I can't wait to be able to sequence 16 layers without having to use a computer, plus having over 1000 realistic sounds, with options to upgrade __________________ Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch

What styles does everyone play? I play Classic Rock and Melodic Metal, 'course I still play a bit of the old blues and Jazz gotta develop the skills in everything. __________________ i5 750@3.8GHz [24/7] \\ 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws \\ 640GB WD Black + External Storage \\ HD5770 \\ Win7 x64 \\all housed in a neat little P180 mini.

More professional than home, but meh Roland keyboards are actually good, though I haven't had a chance to tinker around with them much. Are there a defining feature with Rolands? Like for example, Yamaha, you get all the music finders, etc, and alot of enphise on styles, whereas the Casio keyboard are more for custom users who like to do a bit more tinkering with sounds. I can play alot of dance and I want to actualy make a trance track or something (Though i don't really want to get a keyboard sequencer just for this type of genre), and thats usually what I come out with, just a backing track to a dance track or something that doesn't develop... Though when I do actually make a proper song, it comes out kind of Classical/Instrumental like. Melodic Metal? My music ranges can differ though. I make music to my surrounding feelings, so for example I made a rather eerie song after I got some trouble on my way home from College, that night, hehe. Some good comes from it __________________ __________________ Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
