I have been a long time customer at Long and McQuade in Calgary,they have always delivered when I need them,that is to get me gear that works and fits with my endevours and needs....Anyway,about the Juno DS 88...Lots of precance in these sounds,and a huge variety of several Libraries...I down loaded all the Libraries off the Axial site...was easy ,and now have a huge collection of other EX sounds,is a brilliant keyboard for the price,I'm sure the 61 synth action board will be popular also..Roland has had it's issues so time will tell,if the key bed for this instrument lasts..and's a great bargain....sounds are really nice..samples have come a long way..and then you can process them here again on this keyboard....I wanted an 88 keyboard for my lower level of my studio...I use a Kurzweil PC 88,and the upper studio area.(Upstairs )...this DS 88 also as a midi controller works great in the lower studio with rack mount fits well in many ways musically...For the price,I would seriously look and listen to one of these....Roland Juno ds 88....
