I wish I could put the video in slow motion. It looks like they have a fix on the music rack. It appears there is some peg that just slides into the back of Tyros 2.

I'm just in the listening mode for now, keeping an open mind. I suspect I won't know until I can get my hands on one and try it out.

wont make any hard and fast judgements yet. The board sounds nice but did not blow me away. I guess the question is just how much more real can the sounds become. They were already convincing on the T1 and the sound quality is comparable with all the other top arrangers currently available. I guess i am hoping that the release of the T2 will make the prices of the T1 and Korg PA1X fall into something that i can more readily afford. Good luck to all those that thgink they might purchase the new T2 and if you have a Korg or T1 to sell ...please give us a guide price. Cheers

I wouldn't expect the sounds to be quite as top notch as dedicated modules / samples. There just isn't going to be the kind of sample rom available for that. That said, it does sound very nice, at least in the demos.

I agree with Don though, not that I really know what the Ketron drums sound like anyway, but I always thought the Yamaha arranger drum sounds to be a bit "soft" vs the PA80 and other keyboards out there. It's all a matter of personal taste anyway, but for me many of the lead voices even on the original Tyros are light years ahead of their counterparts on the PA80... but those danged drums.. I don't know how to describe it.. the word "sleepy" comes to mind as I type this. Oops.. OTOH.. maybe it's me that's sleepy.. I woke up too early bthis morning

Pretty sounding demos though. The sounds are certainly going to be good enough for me as a live player.

Guys,
as a former Ketron SD1 user and an actual Tyros user, let me say this: do you want the Tyros drums sound like Ketron? Go to the effect section and crank the midrange Eq 4-6 dB up; that's the way the SD1 sounds (lots of midrange and little or no highs) .
And the reason is simple: unlike the Tyros, the SD1 sounds (including the drums) have NOT been sampled at 44.1 kHz; just try and listen to a cymbal or an agogo and then tell the difference yourselves:
Tyros = crisp and clear
SD1 = dull and "clanky".
Regards,
A.

Actually, I don't know what the Ketron drums sound like, but I would sure like it if the Yamaha arranger drums sounded like the kits on the Motif.

Perhaps the samples are the same or similar, but the difference is very noticeable.

Also, going into the mixer and just turning up the drum parts up make it sound much more like the strong Ketron drum tracks.
