Surprised no threads about this. Anyone used? Curious how weighted the "semi-weighted" keybed is.

It's not a weighted hammer type action for certain. It's a semi-weighted synth action.
A few guys that played one at Gearfest (Sweetwater) recently felt it was of better quality than the 06 action.
More similar to the one they put on the Jupiter-50.
There is a rumor floating about that it's actually a Fatar TP-9.
Either way, it's a nice lightweight workstation from Roland with a decent synth action.
Some nice improvements in firmware version 2.0 as well.

Sound and functionality is identical to the FA-08, which has been discussed here. The FA-07 does not have a hammer action, so from a piano player's point of view, will generally be seen as inferior to the FA-08 no matter how good a "semi-weighted" board it is. But for those who find a quality semi-weighted sufficient, it will be nice to have another lightweight option (under 19 lbs for 76 keys). From the few people who have played one so far, it seems to have a pretty decent action, as SW actions go. I've got one on order, myself, though it will not be my primary board for piano work.
