Crab Trap? I remeber a little story...

Declan the Crab
Declan the humble crab and Kate the Lobster Princess were madly, deeply and passionately in Love. For months they enjoyed an idyllic relationship until one day Kate scuttled over to Declan in tears.

"We can't see each other anymore...." she sobbed.

"Why?" gasped Declan.

"Daddy says crabs are too common," she wailed. "He claims you, a mere crab, and a poor one at that, are the lowest class of crustacean... and that no daughter of his will marry someone who can only walk sideways."

Declan was shattered, and scuttled sidewards away into the darkness and to drink himself into a filthy state of aquatic oblivion. That night, the great Lobster Ball at THE CRAB TRAP was taking place. Lobsters came from far and wide, dancing and merry making, but the lobster Princess refused to join in, choosing instead to sit by her father's side, inconsolable.

Suddenly the doors burst open, and Declan the crab strode in. The Lobsters all stopped their dancing, the Princess gasped and the King Lobster rose from his throne. Slowly, painstakingly, Declan the crab made his way across the floor...and all could see that he was walking not sideways, but FORWARDS, one claw after another!

Step by step he made his approach towards the throne, until he finally looked King Lobster in the eye. There was a deadly hush. Finally, the crab spoke..............

Aw man, old timers disease just kicked in ... someone finish the story.

In my humble opinion there are only 2 categories where the g1000 beats the Tyros2. Vocal choirs and the sfx kit. The rest including guitars,flutes, accordion, saxes, trumpets, drums, styles and any sound i missed all leave the g1000 in the dust. However i rate the g1000 sounds better than g70. The T2 is one hell of a keyboard and i hope to buy one in the near future

As far as a reply to this post's title... no.

As far as most of the "replies" here... you guys are all nuts. Keep this up and Nigel's gonna pull the plug on the whole forum.

If Yamaha built a compact instrument along the lines of the 3000 with the sound of the T2, it would be a winner.

NJH,
That "winner" may be in 3000's replacement thats coming out soon.

I'm very curious as to see/hear what the PSR3000 replacement will feature that could be different enough from the 3000, without its features/functionality being very much like the Tyros2. Doing that, at a PSR price would anger a lot of T2 owners.

If its nothing more than harmonizer improvements and fine tuning of voices and styles, it won't do me any good.

the T2 is already a winner. It has outsold any other recent arranger in its class. Yamaha dont need to make any adjustments until the competition show up with something better.

Answere to the question: "Do You really need a tyros 2"
No, I think KORG OASYS would be enough(even thou i dont have one yet),
and by the way that PSR-3000 Dude is a great player, he also has videos of himself on TYROS, so don't assume he just uses psr-3000, he has a tyros too(even thou both Tyros/tyros 2/PSR-3000 are very semiliar... but tyros 1 and 2 are more colored and stuff, which attracts kids very much)

Hi pasadoble,
I'm in the middle of trying to decide whether T2 or PSR3k.
Did you notice a great deal of difference in sound & quality as far as listening to styles goes. I gather some of the voices for melody would be superior on the T2,
but I like the idea of the portability of the psr3k.
Do you know if style creation & editng functions are the same on both boards??

best wishes
Rikki
