The 990, regular of ebony, is
a much more expensive digital than
mine, and will perform much
better. So worrying about
how many "samples per key" it
has is irrelevant, in my view.
Reading posts from this forum, it was said that there is a significant difference between 4 vs 3 samples... so it is relevant in my view.
I like the RD700GX keyboard/touch in a more simplistic package for home + recording function. And it looks like the 990R might be it.
The 990R is currently going for around $2900 and not many online places carries it... yet (hopefully). Hoping the price might come down in the future. Or maybe some type of %20 off deal from online places like guitar center, musician friend...etc.
