It has lots of patches.
More then 700, I believe.
You know, Roland has a site, where you can find videos for the keyboards youre looking at...
Here's GW-7 vids for example:
Just go into RolandUS.COM - products, choose what ever you want, and check the vids.
Not long ago, I wanted to buy my first synth.
I knew NOTHING about synthesizers\ professional keyboards.
All I played was a casio ctk arranger.. (Cheap keyboard, but actually quite decant).
Anyway, I didn't know what I was looking for.
I saw stuff like the Roland Fantom X, Korg Triton Extreme or Yamaha MOTIF es.
Each one of those three was too bloody expensive!
So, I went to a shop that sells Rolands, and I saw the Roland GW-7 and the Roland Juno-D.
The Juno-D seemed quite professional and that, (I was impressed by the D-beam for example, which I never knew before). And it was quite cheap.
The GW-7 was about the same price, but I really liked it. It has some really cool sounds, built very good, and I believe it's a perfect arranger. (Although they write "Workstation on it, it really isn't... It has ryhtmes, and unlike like synthesizer workstations, you can't really edit the patched. Meaning it's not a synth. It sure is a great keyboard to play, and if youre not into synthesziers (where you make your own programs and have some more complex options like samplers and stuff), It's great.
I almost got the GW-7. If I had, I believe I was very satisfied.
But. I got a triton le instead. Which is very different. It's a synth.
The whole syntheziser stuff in synths, is just a new world... It's quite amazing.
Again, if youre not into synthesizing, get the GW-7.
