Hi all,

I recently purchased a Roland FA-08 after spending quite some time deliberating between it and the Yamaha MOXF8. However I’m not sure I’m completely satisfied with the product. What I was looking for was:

* An 88-note weighted workstation synth that weights less than the S90XS or Fantom G8 so is easier to transport around for gigs.
* The ability to import samples and play them on the keyboard (the FA-08 will only let you play samples via the pads)
* I don’t want the sound to cut off when I move from one Performance/Program/Split/Layer to the next (this is an issue for me with the FA-08 and S90XS).
* Plenty of User storage area to store patches, splits, layers & performances that I create
* A decent user interface that lets me access favourite sounds/performances quickly without scrolling through numerous screens/options.
* The ability to create layers with up to 16 zones if necessary - 4 isn’t enough

What sold me on the FA-08 eventually was the action. To me it feels much better than the GHS action on the MOXF8.

With all the above mind does anyone have any suggestions on what might best suit my needs? Perhaps I’m dreaming when I say I want something that’s not as heavy as the S90XS/Fantom G8 :)

Where does the Kurzweil PC3K8 sit in relation to the above?

Thanks so much in advance,
