i dont want to sound petty or like the "ugly american" but i must say that the name audya for a product and not just a keyboard has to be the worst name ive ever heard in my 66 years on this earth. who thought this one up? if you ever want to sabotage a product this has got to be it. how do you even pronounce the word? sorry but i had to get it off my chest.

AUdio DYnamic Arranger

Pronounce AW-DI-A

I don't think Audya is that bad. It's not any worse than Tyros; which sort of sounds like a dinosaur. Not a good connotation for a leading edge electronic device.

AU-DYA )with the stress on the FIRST sylabol!! As for the name picking, we did. It has to do with major references to AUDIO - (Audio Dynamics) which is the new technology (being able to control it that is).

Any idea on when we can buy this wonder? And what the price point will be? I really had my heart set on a PA2X, but when I saw the specs on this it made my heart jump.

here's what i'm missing with SD1 and wish AUDIA had:
1- less hick ups, clicks and off time jumps.
2. more room for sampled wav/msp
3. separete eq for each element or at least for kick snare bass and right hand
4. better pitch bend/modulation wheel (SD5 style) even with a price of losing an octave.
5. Gated reverb.
some of it may be on a professional level (I'm a sound engineer and a musician) but I think that's where Ketron should aim.
