I don't know about the EX20 but my Juno DS61 has only 3 or 4 levels of velocity curve.

I'd suggest downloading the manual for the EX20 and finding out yourself.

From the E-X20 manual
Keys 61 Keys with Touch Response,
3 Touch Levels
Polyphony 128
Voices 656​

I _think_ this means:

. . . There are 3 levels of "touch" -- Soft / Medium / Heavy

That setting, sets the overall sensitivity of the keys.

Each key probably produces a full range of "MIDI velocity" (1-127) -- roughly, "loudness".

So it's OK.

My only doubt about the E-X20:

. . . In English, it is strictly marketed to families with very young children, beginning piano lessons.


The Yamaha PSR-4xx keyboards have been around for _many_ years. The PSR-463 (most-recent model) has an audio recorder (recording to a USB drive).

Yamaha markets the PSR-4xx models as being able to "make music", rather than as learning tools.

Each instrument (Roland and Yamaha) has a USB-to-computer link for MIDI signals.

If the price is equal, I'd probably buy the Yamaha PSR-463.

For "absolute beginner" use, I think either one of them will be OK.

The prices are more or less the same for the Roland and Yamaha.

The Roland is not available in all countries, to me it seems are though it is primarily aimed at the Asian sub-continent market.

Without even hearing it my vote would go to the Roland over the Yamaha every day, at this price point Roland quality tends to outstrip that of Yamaha by a large margin.
