I don't think that there will be Audya module at all. but you never know.

Lee, you would pay $4800+/- for a audya module?

doesn't the AUDYA sell for less than $4,800?
i thought it was @ around $4,500

if Module had my 2GB RAM,
and my 1TB HD so i can store ALL my mp3's,
and a set of NEW modern sounds (synth&drums)
then maybe i would pay the $4,800 :-)

Looks like you are setting yourself up for another non-purchasing decision. But make impossible requests from ANY manufacturer, and you'll NEVER buy another arranger. Might as well request 1024 voices as well, forty variations, 20,000 fills, an Orville VH, built in Lexicon PCM 96 Surround, 7.1 Dolby output and an espresso machine built-in, too

That ought to save you some money

I'm still not quite sure you realize the workload of using a built-in sampler, rather than a V-Machine, though. Have you used one much before? If so, you probably realize that even if it accepts Akai format, ONLY the samples and their keymaps (and even that, in the case of velocity cross-switched sounds is a hit or miss affair) come in. The envelopes, LFO's, ALL the sound engine programming WON'T import. You will have to do it ALL by yourself, for EVERY sound. And don't get me started about drumkits!

It all SEEMS like a good idea until you end up working 24/7 just to get one good string library or a huge piano's envelopes and filters all tweaked to perfection. Then you might start to appreciate the time saving nature of a V-Machine, where you'll be able to load in libraries with this work already done for you...

Trust me on this one... I've got a K2500. It imports Akai, Roland, you name it. But, just like everything out there OTHER than computer samplers, getting the samples loaded up is maybe only 10% of the battle. Only Kurzweil native libraries come in with all the associated programming. And, as Ketron really have next to NOTHING in their own, albeit limited format, you are facing a mountain of work just to justify even ONE 1 or 2GB load in its' entirety. Let alone a TB's worth!

You CAN already swap out the Audya's HD for one a lot bigger, I believe, so your MP3 library is not an issue no matter HOW big it is (1TB of MP3's? REALLY? ). But the sampler issue is a tough one, I'm afraid. I don't make the V-Machine recommendation lightly, only in the knowledge of the hurdles you will face in the unlikely event of Ketron actually adding what you THINK you need...

Leezone,

It's only 1 hour on a plane for me, but I'm not going I might see something better than anything else and fall for the old story, "Best kb in the World", I think we should have a collection and send Diki, what do you think Diki. He'll sort them KB manfactures out, I would love to be just over is shoulder, or ever sat on it, it would be hellish fun.

Regards

Tony

PS he would just come back with the leaflets
