    Will anyone please help me figure out how to get the best Rhodes sound from the pre set ones in my RD300 ? Most of what i've been getting in my EP options are too thin & glassy. I need much more warm & full tones...

    Real Rhodes (start at the 3:40 mark):



    same band, same song, different keyboard player, digital keyboard (start at the 50 second mark):



    Is this the sound you are looking for? Also note the "famed" Nord Stage 2 is sitting to his right but he chose to use the Kurzweil to do the Rhodes rather than the Nord.

    Here's a broader pallete of what the keyboard sounds like:

    Check your users manual on how to make a "user preset". Then experiment with the on board eq and effects to see if you can shape the sound more to your liking. Save it as a user preset. You can also explore doing the same thing with layering of two on board Rhodes sounds. Play around with it and see what you can come up with. Don
