Yes that was me 🙂.
I liked the build quality of the D1 (mdf panels, sturdy keybed, decent connectors, good looks etc.) a lot over all the other plastic we know. I wasn't fond of the internal sounds, but didn't need those anyway.
But, this was the but, I had great difficulty getting a good nuance control out of it. I thought it was me, being a total beginner at that point, and that I just had to learn. I checked two different D1s, same problems on both. So, still thinking it was just me, I almost finalized the purchase regardless.
But one minute to twelve, I tested a D1 right next to an FP30 (then, not yet X), to double check… and found that the Roland did just as I intuitively would expect it to respond. And realized that on acoustic pianos, I didn't have the weird nuance control problems either.
Saved by that bell, it got through to me that it wasn't me after all, and went for the Roland action (FP-10 in my case) instead.
Cheers and happy saving Graces,
