Hello everybody,

I strongly believe that WK2 oriental has some of the best oriental sounds and styles (though they are outdated, but still very good quality). However, the western sounds and styles are beyond horrible. The organization of WK2 of how you select the sounds and how you select the styles, and how you change the volume is completely frustrating. This is clearly a very old keyboard. I strongly believe that it is time for GEM to completely replace it. We need a new keyboard of the same price range but has nothing absolutely similar to WK2oriental. Please GEM, this time, do not even support any old sounds/styles from WK2. We do not miss it and we do not want to be reminded of it or anything related to it (except of course the oriental goodies).

Furthermore, I believe, GEM can really do good if they produce a new oriental kit.

Just to put it in context, at one time, WK2oriental was the best deal for money in all oriental keyboards. All musicians who are interested in oriental music have owned and appreciated WK2oriental. But that was the past of course. Time for new keyboard.

I second that motion (but i dont want to upset any of the STILL wk2OR owners). I owned it for 3 years and loved it and made money using it, but sold it over 6 months ago and owning the x1 before selling it, I dont miss it for a second.

GEM was the leader in oriental keyboards without competition at one point, not from roland, nor Ketron, nor anyone else...am sure they can do it again.

Off course I as a musician would love for all the companies to compete, cause that only means I get a better product and more choices of it.

There is still no oriental package that I know of for the Genesys, however, I've been able to get the WK2Iranian styles and drum kit for use with the Genesys and WK6 and WK8 keyboards. Soon, I will have the Iranian styles for the WK1 and WK2 oriental keybaords.
