My old Yamaha KX-76 may be giving up the ghost, and I'm considering getting the Roland/Cakewalk A800. Roland uses their fekachta all-in-one bender/modulator rather than separate wheels, and I'm a little concerned about making the jump to their system. For example, with a modulation wheel, I can take my hand off it for a moment to tweek a rotary controller to bring in another effect. With the Roland spring-loaded device, if I take my hand off it, the volume will drop to zero.
Are there any people here using Roland controllers, and if so, how do you deal with such a situation? Thanks.
