what style is most useful for orthodox reggae?

getting sick of using multisample, want to try the real thing

2 octaves seems enough from my experience

do the small hohner 900/901 sound ok?

get hm-32 - you get alto and soprano. Also keys are just like regular piano - good thing if you are okey with piano playing. 901 is kinda silly thing, it may sound allright thou... but for about $30 extra or so you get a much better instrument.

getting sick of using multisample
... it's about time :) :) heh heh ....

not long time ago I myself got acoustic guitar and finally real bass (BACK!!!!) ....
still trapped in sequencing drums and playing digital piano forever ...grrrrrrrrrrr :( ... but it's not so bad after all ....

Hi Peter,

I have bought fews years ago my first melodica, i got a 901.... really cheap... but the key can be used for fun but not for record it.

The sounds is crappy, few months after i have bought a big hohner, you can't compare the soudns quality !!!

Buy directly the biggest you find !

Jah Bless,
KoCha
