Try "right click" the downloadlinks, then save as. Unzip and play.
Works fine here.

That's what I need! A roadie to play the Bass part!

An objective observation?? Well, for one thing they make a great Duo..

Okay, back to being serious . The Ac. Piano wasn't the best in my humble opinion. In fact, it sounded pretty similar to my former Tyros' "1" Live! Ac. Grand. The EP was okay but a little lackluster in my opinion. I'm sure they would both sound better in person since the video is compressed (along with the audio) and therefore can't give us a true or exact representation of the sound(s) true nature and quality. Don Mason says the Audya is the best arranger he's ever heard "bar none" so that says something to me. >> Either #1: that Don is "right" in his assessment of the Audya or #2: his hearing is going downhill faster than anyone realized, including himself. Just kidding Don!! I don't want you getting angry and busting your gut open on my account okay? One appendectomy suture job is enough for now, right?..

I'm joking around of course but that new Musikmesse Audya demo didn't make me go: "Wow!! What a fantastic sounding arranger keyboard!!!!" Unfortunately, it remined me of my former (and now seven years old technology) Yamaha Tyros with 15 extra keys. In other words, it didn't bowl me over or blow me away or anything close to it. BUT, I will reserve my final verdict until I can actually play one in person. Which may be a coons age unfortunately, seeing how they are more scarce than the fossilized bones of a Tyrannosaurus Rex right now.

All the best,
Mike

To follow up on my "Tyros" comment. The Tyros was a great arranger for its time. Even the best actually, at least for a brief period of time in my opinion. But that was seven years ago and this is today.

So Ketron can only match the sound of a former totl "seven year old" keyboard in today's world seven years hence?? Am I missing something here?? Of course the Drums are outstanding because they are audio based samples (as opposed to MIDI based). But you need more than Drums in your repertoire right? Maybe it's the way Ketron has been Mic'ing the demos perhaps? Maybe they need to fire their sound guy perhaps?? And get somebody who "can" produce some outstanding demos perhaps??

Things just aren't adding up if you ask me. On the one hand we have a well respected member like DonM saying the Audya is the best EVAH!! On the next hand, we hear these lackluster Audya demos that start to poke enormous holes in Don's well respected, from the heart, sincere statement(s) that he's given.

Maybe I'm just taking this all too seriously perhaps too, and should just accept the Audya for what it is = i.e. a five thousand plus + dollar, 76 key arranger 'experiment' from our friends in Ancona, Italy. And then wait for version 2 to come out.. oh, in about 12 years or so - if we're lucky. >> Maybe I should cut down on the caffeine in the morning as well too.

All the best,
Mike

dont know what your ears are tellin you but that bass sounded as live as i have heard any bass played live. The electric pianos sounded fine and had lots of expression from what could be deciphered with all the background noise. The same for the accoustic piano. I think we are giving the Audya far too rough a ride here. I am not saying its worth the cost when compared to other lower priced arrangers but i like what i am hearing. And i have to admit that that bass sounds better than the ones i have on my PA1X.

Actually, I'm quite surprised...the Audya sounds pretty darn good...the drums are very "live" sounding.

Best demos so far, although I did find the accompaniment parts a little murky...except, of course, for the aforementioned drums.

Do we have any demos up (not camcorder abortions, but real recordings) of the difference between the Audya's 'Live Loop' drums and it's own internal drumkits?

I mean, of course one expects the loop drummers to sound 'live'... THEY ARE! But they suffer from a complete lack of editing ability. Want to change a kick pattern, or snare hit? Forget it...

What do the regular drum kits (that don't suffer this drawback) sound like?
