As I said in my previous post “Fingers crossed that Wersi don’t cock it up”

The OAS in the Apollo is completely different from OAS 7 or any other version, so its unlikely that they will ever match up, if anything it will be the other way round, as there are features in the Apollo that are not available in OAS 7.

As to sounds and styles then we will have to wait and see. (If they include Legacy sounds and styles then their doomed)
BTW Styles and sounds are added all the time via free updates, and the number of user slots is updated as and when required.

Anyway we should have more details next week, and we will then be able to see if it cuts the mustard, particularly as its virtually the same price as a Tyros 3 (In spite of negative feedback on forums, and plenty for sale on the used market, the T3 is still the best selling TOTL Arranger out there) and will probably be able to directly play the same styles if required.

IMO however, (Until Roland bring out a new Arranger based on the new Atelier Sound Engine) the Arranger it has to convincingly beat is the Korg PA2x, which IMHO is the best TOTL Arranger out there at the moment. (It may not handle VST but it does take Akai and the rest of it is also stunning)

Regards

Bill

With a V-Machine able to address that much memory from a stick and play VSTi's very capably (according to James) for about $699, a hardware keyboard with no better memory capabilities for $5000+ doesn't seem that great a deal


There was a price drop a few weeks back probably to make way for the CPU upgrade kit. That's when I made my purchase and I only paid 333 euro which is $465. So there is a good deal to be had somewhere.

Translated (Google) from the Wersi Austria Forum http://www.tastenpoint.at/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1082 from someone that attended the Summerfest


You can already read the data, purely acoustically I had a very positive impression.
Why, the device has a lively nature, very live just with his drum sets, styles and sounds.
Individual sounds such as Akoustikpiano and strings are managed, however, I miss here a scalability to sounds, just individual sounds are repeatedly Geschmacksache.
With the small new system of Wersi, the key had a good sound, durchsetzungsfähige sounds and pressure as you know it from Wersi.
The screen is touch sensitive, and 10 as it is expected "large enough and easy.
The processing is very solid with styling at the heart of the time and a highly welcome alternative to plastic.
The no longer arises me question is: - it should represent no Konkurenz to abacus and co., thus eliminates a certain experimental capability, some of us appreciate.
But I believe it certainly represents a Konkurenz to certain Italian products, especially concerning the sound and the processing.
There is indeed especially a simple and effective operation referred to Wersi now when this key provides (if one in WERSI at all difficult Bdienung can talk of), is tonally I see but clearly superior.
All in all I was, after Dieter Bohlen, positive touches and believe that it finds his lovers, if they have not already ordered

Translated via Google from the Austrian Forum, and then reworked by myself to make it clearer, please be aware that I am NOT a professional translator and so there may be slight errors.

Seems like there is no option to expand the sounds (load ram sounds) and it might not even have the option to load vsti's..

Lets see whats left of the great feautures of OAS when we get more information.

Hi Bachus
Here are the Apollo Details.
BTW there is no songbook or OTS in OAS 7, just Total Presets that can be tied into the ACC Presets.
OAS 7 will also not function without an SG card, whereas the Apollo does.
