I downloaded few videos of different types of KBs and I really must say this:

Allthough Im extremely happy with my psr2k I still feel there is something missing.. So looks like Im upgrading my KB sometimes when I got the money...

Propably will stick with Yamaha and all Ive heard, seen and read so far it might be Tyros or next generation Tyros when it comes out.

And reason for this is simply this: I thought I dont need all there is in these top models. HA! Im not a pro, I dont do any gigs anymore but anyway I need quite near perfection at home. Or so I think...

Psr2100 is so near Psr2000 so I dont think that would do the trick. What I know there is only few minor upgrades, nothing major Im looking for, like richer sound ect, and I allways wanted only the best. This is first time it looks possible.

In the past of all the kbs Ive had, PSR series has allways fitted me best. Maby thats why Im looking to upgrade in Tyros. It seems to be quite different comparing to my psr2k but not too different. I still want to try one first so I could be sure it is what Im looking for.

Why not stick with your 2000 and use it to the full with the magic of sysex. Connect it to a computer and with a suitable XG editor like XGworks or XGEdit you can get full access to the synth and layer up to 18 sounds. I have some spectacular organs on my 740 by layering six different sounds.

YamBox, you can can further information about this by contacting Bryan. He's the expert. Still saving up for a Lap Top to be able to do this.
Hey Bryan, what would be the minimum CPU required to do this (Pentium II - 266 be ok)?

You can get XGworks and XGEdit from Yamaha UK. If you're in the US, several dealers sell XGworks for around $79 - look on the net. XGEdit is compact with a single screen but you can't access the whole synth in the 2k - you only get 3 DSPs. With XGworks you can get all 5 DSPs and all the instruments but to make it work properly with the 2k you need my updates. I sent them to Nigel but I don't know where he keeps them. You can download them from Jorgen's website at home7.inet.tele.dk/js/musik/740pages/ . Look under PSR software and find the XGworks updates. The big advantage with XGworks is that it's a powerful sequencer in its own right and has an auto arranger and a style generator in which you can also use your 2k styles.

Star, you can use any old computer as sending sysex is at midi speed - 31250 bps. Or you can use the "to host" connection via the serial port at 38400 bps. I used XGworks and XGedit on my old P233 with no problem.
