Some people have really nice mobile home van builds, just want to throw it out there that not every van-lifer is doing murders.

i love the piano sounds of Kawai, but also love the key action of Roland.

so i bought the RD 2000 and some good VSTs. For me , this is a perfect combination.

Thank you for this thread and it hope, that more piano users of nord, dexibell,korg etc. would write more posts in this forum.

i think, this are also good pianos.

You obviously spend way too much time on forums and not enough playing!

I just curl up in a ball on the floor beneath it for a while.

Then I hug and tell it how proud I am having it in my household.

It is one thing to ‘ignore’ yet another to disregard; if you ignore, you are shielding yourself from the realities that -good or bad- surround us; however, if you face head on, take what’s useful, and disregard what’s useless (“Rolands are great”) you grow and eventually burst out of that tidy bubble created by cancel -ignore- culture!

Rolands are great.


A man must love a thing very much if he practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practice it without any hope of doing it well. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.
