    Roland BK-7M reviews

    BK-7m Backing Module is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grows on You! Initial reaction: some good, some not so useable sounds. With my musical preference being Jazz/Standards, Bossa, Samba, vintage tunes - the BK-7m seemed to favor Euro-pop/classic styles. Took awhile to figure out reliable compatibility with my Korg MicroArranger. Within a week, I've grown to love the quite useable, Performances. Loads of suitable styles/performances! Worthy addition to allow versatile improvisation with my preferred musical preference, and experimentation with Euro and World music forms. In short, I now love this versatile module!
