    well for depends if you want a workstation or a live keyboard for the workstation I would say the Fantom for live I would say the Xp30 or the Rs 9 good luck

    are you looking for good sounds or good feel?
    I have the xv-3080 module, which is expandable and sounds great.

    Cheers

    rolands got the some of the best sound modules...

    I'd 2nd the notion of the Xv 3080

    but if you need a keyboard well Roland Xp-60 or something would be suitable.

    best bet is a cheap midi controller and the Xv 3080 rack

    i don't know which part of the globe ppl are from but I found the cheapest roland gear in Singapore. I got the XV 3080 there for just over $1000 US and keyboard controllers started at around $100 US all new and under waranty(I know it doesn't help much outside SE Asia though. (And I am in Australia).

    The upgrade cards were around $250 US..

    I dont know which keyboard is the best, but I liked Roland XP-30
    or XV-30 (whatever), but then again.. i probably would buy
    Roland JD800 / JP-8000 (but those are analog synths)

    Hi
    My recommedation is not to buy a RS5/9, I´m not
    satisfied. I recommed you to buy a XV3080 or
    XV5050 module instead.
