    Impressions of the Rodgers Inspire 233

    Thanks for sharing this. It is all the more remarkable that you had such a favorable impression from a 2 channel instrument. The recordings on YT sound good, but it sounds like they were recorded in a pretty reverberant room.

      The Convolution Reverb System on the Inspire Series samples the space of 12 different venues. Two of these are First Park Congregational in Grand Rapids, MI, and st. Mary of the Angels inChicago, a huge church. I was skeptical until I heard it with my own ears. They do have an additional internal amp option and I was shown the option of using some basic small amps and speakers similar to what was used for the former C-330 andC-380 Roland products very effective in my view, but not essential in a home.

        Interesting, I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and have been in First Park Congregational many times. I never would have thought they would have picked this for an acoustical setting, unless they wanted a relatively dry one. Of course if they sampled it without any people in the building it might have been better, but whenever I have been there the room is not very inspiring for music.

          I was sent a list of all 12 venues sampled for the reverb settings but can’t find it now. In addition to the two above, they used Tittle Chapelin Evanston Il. That is all I remember.

            John started a thread on the Allen keyboards. I did not want to mess with that one but did want to give my impression of the Inspire boards. Overall, I found the keys tohave a solid feel. Rodgers terms this “light tracker touch”. The key tops have a simulated ivory like feel. I asked the dealer if these were Fatar boards. He said he did not know. The manuals and pedals felt fine to me.
