Hi guys. Which of these two keyboards is the best?

I need to make a decision and don't have a clue what to do.

Hope you guys can help.

Thanks

Piesang,
Just do a search on this forum and you'll get lots of opinions/views

It very much depends on what criteria you use.

I use it mainly for making backtracks on my PC. But also like to play songs with good rythms.

It must have excellent voices, especially guitar, synths and bass.

Drums is also very important.

2 month ago, i was in the same situation as you are, and finally i bought the korg pa1x pro.

one thing important for me was the key touch, better on korg, but on the rest bouth have good styles and sounds, just try to play each one and you'll have your own opinion!!

Well, you're the one that has to decide which one is better, no one can make that choice for you, We all have different tastes, one might like the Tyros more, the other the PA1X.
Personally I think the PA1X is a much better board than the Tyros, I've compared these two when I wanted to buy a new board, The Tyros lacks that Real & Live sound that the PA1X has, Also the styles of Yamaha's Tyros sound a bit dated and repetitive, a bit too keyboardish for my tastes.
But I say go check them out and compare them side by side.

Hi guys

Thanks for your help. I think I also prefer the PA1X. The sounds is much more live than the Tyros.

Going to test the PA1X this weekend.

Will let you know by Monday what I've decided.

I've recently changed from a PA80 to a PA1X and i have never looked back. I would have to say that this is the first time ever that i've totally forgotten about all the previous boards i've ever owned which is kinda strange because with each one i had, there was always something i missed or it lacked from the previous keyboard i owned, but not this time. I can't fault it, styles are the best i've ever heard and also with the best variaty (although not very generous on the selection on Dance), sounds are amazing etc etc...

I've never owned a Tyros, but i have played on it a few times. Lovely keyboard with some nice sounds, did'nt like the styles though, too mellow/basic. I like complex and busy styles, you always get that with Korg and even Ketron.

What styles are different on the PA1X then the PA80? I have the PA80 and am deciding whether to get the PA1X.

Thanks,
