Never has, never will. Life is entirely about compromise! Bottom line for me is, I can tolerate a lightweight action more than I can tolerate the loss of 15 notes!

Trust me, I have probably complained, on the Suggest New Features forum over at Roland-arranger.com, more about my G70 than anyone who doesn't have a Yamaha has complained about Yamaha here! There are just as many compromises I have to make to use a G70 as I would have to to use a Yamaha. But picking and choosing WHICH compromises you are willing to make and which you are not is basically the selection process!

All things being equal, yes, of COURSE I (and probably everyone else here) would prefer a nice feeling keyboard to a spongy one. But PSR's aren't THAT spongy... If I HAD to play one if that's all they had in a 76, I'd probably do it. And so would possibly many more here who complain about the same thing, given that, once you rule out the PSR simply because of the 61 factor, might as well complain about everything else, too!

Everyone here makes compromises. The fun is, arguing about WHICH ONES we can accept or not

Notice how much space is on the left side to make Tyros 4 a 76 key unit?...

YES - If I decide to update from my Tyros3, I would prefer a 76 to a 61, as long as the keyboard wasn't stretched too much.

The 76 Audya is only around the same length as my Technics KN7000, due to no wasted space at either end so I would welcome the chance of more keys in this space.

Answer to question is Yes. As long as it is not bigger than the T4.
That would eliminate having to take my XS 76 when I need to play styles and have 76 keys.
I would even buy a PSR S with 76 keys.

The drums would not matter to me because I donít use onboard styles. As long as I could edit the drum kits with EQ and compression life would be good.

Yes...right now...however IF Korg hits a big home run soon.then NO.

Also, the PA2XPRO is only 4 inches longer than a T3...there's plenty of room to make 76 wthout making it much if any longer.
The PA is 6 lbs heavier..BUT it is metal and wood..not plastic. The Motif XF6 vs the XF7 is only 3.5 lbs different!!

76 keys would entice me, but the price tag would probably keep me away, unless I was playing more often than I do. And I'm pretty happy playing as much as I do now.

I would imagine as well, Cassp, that those who say they would buy a 76 note Tyros4, may balk at the price...no doubt it would be higher than a 5 octave instrument.

How much?

Hard to say.

How much more was the PA2XPro over a PA-800?
