Hi Bernie, I agree I certainly would have more time to devote to this kind of thing, if only I didn't have to constantly dodge bullets & thread hijackers. Btw: how'z your music doing? I fondly remember our Florida SZ jam playing music with you and Harry Babcock. It's was all about the joy of making music together.

Looking forward to more detailed specifications.

Happy Playing

Well, based on the specs I think that the PA2X is not as innovative (is that proper English?) as the Ketron Audya, but the whole package does look very promising. I noticed that Korg seems to have replaced the double midi sequencer with a double MP3 recorder/player. It will undoubtedly also play midi files, but for the pro's this must be a very helpful feature to have on board as standard.

Do you think that the "Real Experience" sounds are somewhat of an equivalent to the Yamaha's Super Articulation sounds?
I do like the "pro" looks by the way, with the clean no-nonsense layout and what seems to be a wood finish on the side panels.

Scott, thank you for adding the photo's!

Is that a Tyros stand it sits on in the second picture?

Scott,

Thank you for posting these photos that you found on arrangerworld.com which I snapped off of the German Korg site. Just another example of the type of information we hope to provide to the arranger community.

Regards,
Al www.arrangerworld.com

To allow us a longer & more detailed look, I took the liberty of creating the below screen capture "stills" of the German website's impressive PA2Xpro video:

Hi Al. I actually didn't find these on arrangerworld at all, but used my screen capture utility program: SNAG-IT , to create screen capture "stills' from the http://www.korg.de/ link TOM NL provided. If I had found these or similar pics posted on your site, I would have certainly credited you. That said, mine are relatively lo resolution, so if the pics at your site are of higher resolution (providing more detail/clarity), it might be nice if you can share a link to yours. Thanks. - Scott

Well I for one am relieved, having just bought the PA1-X Pro, I feared I had bought too early (I really needed a new board urgently though).

I may be jumping the gun here, but if the following basic upgrades are true:

256 Meg Ram Sampling
Tilt Screen
Mp3 Dual player recorder

...then I don't feel the need to upgrade just yet!

The only idea I would love is the tilt screen.

The rest - well nice but hardly necessary.

Don't forget 128 voices... Pretty important, considering how layered you can make the voices...

Just the PA800 (Oasys) piano is worth the leap, IMO...

Hmmmm..well I haven't run into ANY dropouts just yet, but it IS early days....

I think what people have mentioned before is 62 note Poly for the Korg (PA1X) is plenty considering they use only 2 oscillators per voice (average) and apparently have a clever note assigning algorithm that keeps things in check.

I'm with Hellboy44. The way I use the arranger, none of those "upgrades" would affect me. Now if they added some new "factory grade" styles and made them available to the PA1x crowd, I'd be happy. Diki, how many voices can you layer before it starts to sound like fecal matter. I've also never had a problem with dropout.
