Agreed - Roland R-8 + "Electronic' card.

Or get a Roland R-8mkII and have the "Electronic" and "Dance" card sounds built in!


cheers,
Ian

Do not overlook the Roland R-70....I'm 99.99% sure you get all the sounds from the 12/13 cards.

That's great. I was checking on the MFB site and saw it said retailers, but thought it was only European retailers. What's interesting is it's cheaper to buy in the US than in Europe. $265 here and about $308 just to buy it there, despite it being made in Germany?

Thanks, Wiss. :)
That's because in the U.S. the price is minus the VAT (Value Added Tax, currently 15% I think) that you'd have to pay if you were buying in the E.U.

Nova Musik also stock MFB gear.
