In the “other categories”, there is a bunch of other kind of sounds, so you have everything from wind instruments to a lot of world instruments, with interesting things like the sitar.
The rhythm and accompaniment features on this keyboard are pretty typical, standard things.
When you play chords, the keyboard will recognize the harmonies and it will adjust the accompaniment patterns.
You also have the liberty to play the rhythms without the accompaniment pattern.
Touch Sensitive Button Functions
Another cool thing about this keyboard is that you can start and stop the rhythms and also add in files and intro and endings with the keys.
If you want you can even do it with the buttons, which is standard. The low ‘F’ will start the beat and stop it, then the ‘E’ key will sync the ending, so it will go to the pre-program ending. Then ‘D’ is for normal and ‘C’ is for variations.
You can also switch between accompaniment and rhythm using the keyboard as well so the low ‘A’ will switch
