Congrats inray! As petes1 said "welcome to the club." Truly a fantastic keyboard. It was an excellent gigging board for me since March '14 - very road worthy in every respect. Now, having it back at home full time, I have a whole new appreciation for it. Enjoy!

Inray,

Congrats on your purchase, and thank you for your faith in Roland.

I did this RD-800 Turbo Start video series awhile back.

It might help you get a quicker start with your RD-800:

Let me know if you find them useful to you!

Congratulations...! IMHO, I prefer the quieter and more solid key action present in the Kawai MP7 instead the bouncy and noisier Roland RD800 key action... but tastes are like the names... everybody has at least one!. Cheers!.
