I agree, RD76 would have been great. I'm in 2 minds about getting rid of it though, it really does play well (64 keys do anyhow!!) and many of my gigs are ok with this range. I 've yet to find something which ticks all the boxes, there always seems to be a compromise somewhere.

+1 ; since the introduction of the PX5S the A-88 and RD-64 seem indeed a little superfluous. Especially considering the relatively high Roland prices. Roland must really rethink it's strategy in many ways. Appears they are not doing so well with their current product line. Only the Integra-7 seems to be a hit. See what they come up with this year as an answer to all the 'threats' .

A question to RD-64 users:

Is my understanding correct that you can apply overdrive to the E-Pianos with the D-Beam? Or is the overdrive only available for organ and clav? The manual doesn't seem to mention this, but a few users seemed to indicate this.

Thanks in advance!

I know this is an old post, but I have the same question and was wondering if the MIDI out is active when in piano mode as well as controller mode on the RD-64. Did you ever find out?

Regards.

Yesterday I finally gave in to my GAS and bought a RD-64. Super happy so far. In order to answer my own question (in case other users are interested) and ramoore44's question:

1) Setting the D-Beam to "assign"-mode applies overdrive to the EPs. That's really good since then you can have reverb, tremolo, phaser and overdrive, which means that you have basically everything that you could want for EPs. I only need to figure out a good way of controlling the D-Beam without holding a hand over it. So far I put a small bowl on it but that's not really a permanent solution. By the way, for APs the D-Beam applies a detune effect, making the APs honkytonky

2) When in piano mode (i.e. not controller mode), the unit sends MIDI information like note on/off. For example I controlled my MicroKorg with it in piano mode.

I really like the unit. The sounds are very good and the effects as well. It's pretty limited, but that has it's own charme. It basically is a poor-man's Nord Electro - not a bad thing at all.
