  1. Duncan Morales

    I have had this synthesizer for several years, I am very pleased with it, thanks to the large number of sounds and performance it is very inspiring to constantly improve and develop creativity and musical improvisation, it is intended for musicians with education and some practice.

    By contrast, it is not suitable for beginner musicians with poor knowledge of the basic principles of music. I TRUST AKAI AND I WAS NOT FAVORABLE!
