I´m Johannes from Germany. I´m using the PC88 as my one and only Keyboard lying on my new rotating Key Stand. :)
Connected via MIDI are:
The PC88 is an relativ old Instrument, but is still has great Key Action and very good Masterkeyboard - Features. I can controll with it my whole Rack. You have 128 Setups, in which you can controll 4 Zones ( 4 different external Modules ). You can do all that you want: Bank Select, Program Changes, Splits, Layers, different Velocities, up to 6 Foot Switches and Controllers.
You have many different Sliders and Switches which you can assign to many Functions ( Volume, Setup/Program Switch, Zone mute, Effects etc. )
I don´t use the internal Sounds, but there are some Pianos, E-Pianos, Strings, Organs, Basses, Harpsichords...only the Basics.
I use this Board since 5 years and I didn´t use and experience all of it´s functions.
The PC88 is very well build ( great metal chassis ).
The only bad thing is the external power adaptor for a Keyboard of it´s class.
I bought this thing for it´s Key Action, for it´s great Masterkeyboard functions and for it´s stability. I love it!!!
P.S. Because the PC88 is an older Instrument you could get it used for a good price. The newer Model is the Kurzweil PC2X.
