It's not that I don't like Korg arrangers, but their PA3X doesn't show the same level of 'goodies' as their Kronos.
Also, I thought that the Korg was missing the 'chord track' (I have read the manuals) ,which Yamaha has, but another user explained to me that in fact, the Korg has the same function as Yamaha's 'chord track', it's just called differently. So my interest in the Korg has risen because if it can do the same 'chord track' function, then it also has a more in-depth sequencer than my Tyros 2, which is good because I want such a sequencer.
I even bought an used QY-700 in the hope that by hooking it up to the Tyros 2, I would have all the editable features as the Korg's sequencer, but the QY700 setup has proven to be a very complicated setup as I did not manage to integrate it fully with the Tyros 2.
So I might as wel get a Korg. I can't affort the PA2X, it will be either the PA800 or the PA500, the latter is cheaper so it holds my interest as I don't need a 64 mb sampler (too small memory anyways) , and the TC Helicon. The lack of colour screen is no big deal either.
The only thing I might be missing are the RX sounds of the PA800, but I don't know if they really are much better than the PA500.
How does the PA500 keybed fares? Do you know if it is better than the keybed of a PSR 910 or similar? (if you know).
Given that the PA500 has a very good price even new, I would prefer it to a used PA800, unless the latter has far better voices.
Anyways, feel free to tell me what you know, and how the PA500's keybed feels.
