I have owned my Roland Rd700sx 88 note stage piano since it was first released.Its a great piano.Served me well but I could use more variety of pianos and electric pianos and a better variety in the onboard drum machine.
So,am I better off upgrading to a better piano or should I add something like an external drum machine and something else to get the extra pianos and electric piano sounds?

My budget is limited to under $500 Aust.So,what would you recommend?

Thanks.

For a limited budget like that, it would be tough to add another/new equipment...

Assuming you have an existing capable laptop or existing PC, you can also try...

Pianoteq 4.5

Add-ons

Drum machines/module

Or you can just save up a little more til you reach around $1,200 and you'd have a couple more keyboard options...

Thanks for the reply.There are some interesting equipment there.

The Boss DR3 looks good.I'm looking into that one.Thats something I could benefit from.

Is the pianotech a computer software? Havent quite figured out what it does.

I had been in contact with Roland to find out about their new models.Seems they've come along way from the RD700sx.

Thanks for the ideas.
