Anyone with RG1520 GK midi experience

I just got the RG1520 GK with Roland GI-20 midi interface, and regardless of my settings with play feel and sensitivity at the GI-20, the midi tracking is good enough. I get too many ghost notes and far off notes.

So if anyone has any experience with this setup, please advice me.

I've always been interested in these as I have a few synths, but I've never played with one.

A bit surprisingly I set the sensitivity to the lowest and used the fingerpicking setting.
It tracks almost acceptable, but quick notes is still off, and some notes just misses, but it's useful for pads and medium tempo melodies. still not optimal, but good enough for a keeper. More testing and hopefully some tips from other users will come.
