Add to PA series:

1. Toggle feature on the variations, fills, etc - couldn't live without it now
2. TC Helicon is good
3. Break fill
4. "On time" pads
5. Built in speakers (800)
6. Easy access sliders that allow volume, mic and mic reverb
7. I really love where everything is placed on this board for live play

Tyros 3

A. Acoustic Voices
B. Ease of use
c. Yamaha Support and a ton of content available immediately through the LAN connection

1. Used as a generator of backing tracks minus one (keyboard or Guitar for MP3 creation on Netbook for live use where an 88 weighted board is carried and a guitar with Bose Mod II System.

2. Used to create specialized (ie Hoe-friggin-down) backing tracks for video producers where music budget is low IE internet content, local commercials

3. and as a sketch pad for Original pop material which gets sent to DAW via MIDI for production

Feature most wanted: Direct to USB audio recording

Used exclusively in Home Studio. Never left home LOL..

I mainly use the Midjay Plus. I especially like the small footprint, light weight, 80 gig HD - I have a lot of stuff in there. I like being able to add, subtract, organize via USB connection. I use it with several different controllers; mostly midi accordion and frequently Yamaha KX5 or Master MK4. I like the live sound of the midi file playback and of the styles.
I often use it in conjunction with a Korg PA800 as I like a lot of the PA sounds, and they are easier to access during gigs (easier than the Midjay), In addition to the features already listed for the PA boards, I like a lot of the styles and when used in together with the MJ Plus, I have a good variety of sounds and styles.
I use the Midjay only for gigs. When I have to make a sequence, I use the Korg. For many of my gigs, especially weddings, I play cocktail hour then dinner music, and for the dance portion I DJ with the Midjay (WAV files) with a live tune thrown in here and there.
Ciao,
Jerry

AJ, Hopefully, your next post will inculde a request for a 'wishlist

Kingfrog, What a neat and tidy workspace. It would take me months to unclutter my space to look like that.
