Excellent piece of kit!
Serah, 24.11.2017
Bought this to experiment with music around the house and am now introducing it to my live shows and I wasnt disapointed. excellent sounds and lots of banks of different sounds. Lightweight and easy interface.

cons - not many - but one would be that you can only do single notes if playing the "keyboard real time" setting if you want something to play chords on. other than that, I'm super happy with it!

EDIT: After not getting the chance to use it often, I tried to switch it on and it was not powering up at all, I'm currently working with Roland and Thomann to get it repaired, so do further research on any faults these synths have as mine is like new and wont power on having used only the power supply I was sent with it.

I am very disappointed
PietroL, 27.03.2014
This gadget is really not worth it.
The USB setup is not easy and getting it to work with an external sound card is a nightmare.

Midi is OK but you cannot control the TB-3 from your DAW.

What is really missing is a VST to integrate the hardware properly.

For live performance: good!
For studio work: get something else.
