Thinking of taking the Midi plunge for the Dead band and the other one......

Wanna make horn noises and flute noises live

Altered tunings and other stuff cool for other things maybe

I use a Gk3/GR33 setup and I love it. I may get the 55 after I finish paying for a couple of guitar projects. It's probably the best synth option out there. I use the Hammond organ sound a lot when we don't have a keyboard player and while I like the horns and flutes, the sitar sound is my favorite.

I've had the GR-33, VGA-99 and currently he GR-55. Definitely stay with the GK-3 pickp, the RMC and Ghost system don't seem to be on par in terms of tracking.

Surprisingly my favorite sound is the breathy sax on the gr-33 - the sax on the gr-55 can't touch it.
