Got my FP-90 delivered today. I am thrilled. My backstory is here:http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubb...new/1/Looking_to_upgrade_from_PX110.html
Since the only thing the dealer in town carries are the low end Yamahas, it was a blind purchase online. So I can't give you a comparison to much else, other than the action is clearly a huge step up from my old PX110, the Korg Triton LE 88 at church, and the Yamaha GHS action. I haven't played a real piano in a while, but my son states that feels better and more grand like than the upright he beats on at school from time to time.
The dynamic range on it is absolutely huge to the point where it seems it is beyond an acoustic. The length and quality of the sustain is quite impressive. Speakers are quite loud, but sound quality is a little bit of a let down. Seems to be a covered feeling to the sound. Tweaking the EQ helps. I'll have to see what it sounds like plugged in externally.
Suggestion to Roland, cycling through all the sounds, the lists stops at each end. If I go to piano sound 15 and want to go back to sound 1, I have to cycle all the way backwards to 1. That makes no sense. I should be able to just advance the button and have it start back at the beginning. If I am on sound one, I should be able to reverse direction and have it go right to 15. This is extra annoying with the 278 sounds of the other category. Can a firmware update fix that?
One of things that made me target the FP90 over an ES8 was the sound library and extra functions. On day one, I am already happy I chose the FP90. There are a few songs we do at church where we could never manage to find a synth or organ sound on the Korg that was anywhere close to the artist version of the song. We would aimlessly cycle through hundreds of sounds and give up in frustration. I've already managed to find pretty much the exact sound that was used on a few of those songs in the FP90. Seems a lot of the groups we cover must use Roland. While it may seem silly, that is exciting stuff. The Korg is getting to the end of its lifespan so another Fp90 for the church may be coming.
