If anyone wants to listen to some demo tunes of the SD1, go to my stores website http://www.keyboardcity.net/ketron-sd1.htm

The recordings are from 2001. I'm going to do the same songs on the Korg PA1XPro soon .

I haven't tried the G70 yet, but the PA1 series is pretty impressive. I still like my SD1, but since Ketron hasn't had anything new, for me it's getting a little dull. I find the PA1X to have a nice contemporary sound and much better organ,guitar,synth and enthic sounds. I also like the vocal processor on the new PA1.

Hey Frank, does the g70 have a vocal harmony thing ?

Hey Dano,

Yes it does, by the way, need a case,

Completely agree, wish the Ketron would come out with a new board.

Yes the PA1xpro does have some great sounds, but it's still alittle rough around the edges, but I think it's still great

Thanks Frank,
I absolutely LOVE the way my SD1 sounds. I am becoming pretty familiar with the OS now. Can't wait until they build a new one!

Frankieve (and the rest of you):

Thanks for your informative posts and opinions. I am still plodding along with a PSR-2000 and trying to decide my next acquisition. Ain't technology great!

Dear Frankieve;

I notice in your post (listed below), and am interested in your assesment of the Vocal harmonizer (VH) units in the Pa1x & G-70. I see that you have ranked them approximately equal. Can you expand on that a little (i.e. sound quality, authenticity/naturalness of sound and harmony parts, ease of use, fexibility). How long did you asses each unit? I am a little concerned about the G-70s sound quality due to its rca output. Secondly, the G-70s VH is a carry over of their Discover 5 technology vs. outsourcing to a specialty company like Korg did with TC-works in their Pa1x. Comments are appreciated.

PS--if Ketron comes out with a new board they had better fix the ergonomics.(i.e. larger buttons, with on/off light features/ larger color screen, better lay-out, OS system revamp, Customer support!!!!! with Q & A/workshops/upgrades in a timley manor, actually responding to clients, just to name a few)

Thanks
Regards;
BN
