Roland FA08-Review so far
DarrinB, 07.03.2015
Only had the unit one week but here are my thoughts.
I have never used a workstation before I've always used software, but I find it easier to use and navigate than say logic.
The menu system is well laid out and easy to follow. Assigning pitch bends to different parts of the keyboard is so easy.
The sounds are fantastic and easy to manipulate.
The keyboard is really nice to play, feels as good as my Korg M3.
The only down side I have found is that the legend on the keyboard, IE the writing telling you what each function is virtually impossible to read in any light. Even in my studio which well lit I find if you don't look at it at the right angle you cannot see anything. But I will work my way around that because the keyboard is great, well worth the money

Update
Had the keyboard a year now. It has had three feels, the keyboard twice a clicking and knocking sound and the jog wheel catches when rotating. Concerned about the build quality. Have not taken the keyboard out of the studio and these faults have developed. Not certain how it would be for gigging
