That's fine but what do you if AJ has something we want and it includes the pen drive update ?

I feel your pain Bernie
what to do?

Of course AJ's update will cost lots more
but it will include the Pen
so getting both is not adviseable
unless of course AJ 's update comes out next year
it's a catch-22
whats the countdown at now?

What would make sense would be for AJ to offer AJAMSONIC
without the Pen for $60 less as many already have Pen
and those who don't have Pen could get it while waiting for AJAMSONiC

Based upon some suggestions from our dealers/distributors, and taking into consideration what others here have expressed, we WON'T be including the Ketron upgrade with the AJAMSONIC package - this way too, we are not forcing some to pay for what they don't want/need.

Count down still at 4.

AJ,

i think that is a good idea
but please lower the price now since it's not included :-)

Leezone.

The price initially didn't include this smile

It was an idea some were requesting, but on 2nd thoughts, not fair to our dealers/distributors who've alreayd ordered some of these and have been charged for it too!

AJAM is growing and with just 12 employees (for now), we all learn as we get older. I would love to satisfy all customers and just 'give/fix' stuff which I believe should have been as such in the first place (you and a few others rightfully know this), but if it has potential to hurt the dealers/distributors, I've got to take a step back and choose wisely as they are part of the team too!

Leezone,

It would still be wise to get the Ketron pen drive and get updated, I understand that the update takes 2 hours to complete so this looks like a full throttle bit of kit, I have not go mine yet in the UK. AJ software is all well and good but if anything goes wrong when you load AJAMSONIC on, who will you point the finger at and who will fix it for you. And how big is his software thats talking a year to produce, its going to take a week to load on, don't forget to get a UPS.

Just my thoughts

"the update takes 2 hours to complete"

Tony, it takes 2 hours because AUDYA has old @ss USB 1
if AUDYA had USB 2.0 it would take more like 2 minutes

Leezone,

Yep I knew that, but it appears it's worth the wait.

Hello all,

I just ordered my pen drive from Frank today.

I'm anxious to hear the new stuff!

I'll post a review once installed.

Leezone:

I did get his last one. Had I not seen him on facebook this morning and message him, I would have missed out also.

He told me more were ordered.

Sorry.

He must have found one more because he said I got the last one just after you.

Sorry, if AJ hadn't turned around on it's inclusion with AJAM, I would have missed it too. I turned Frank down twice.

Frank just got some more Pens in
Just placed an order for one, since of course AJAMSONIC does not include it (which is ok with me)

thanks Frank

I received my pen today and found no difficulty installing. Do read the instructions and delete the appropriate files listed beforehand.

Will give it a spin tomorrow.

I received and installed the pen drive upgrade today.

Long install, just over three hours!

No problems, Tried many of the new styles on the job tonight.

Several really good one's in the Swing and Ballad sections.

Nice drum tracks and nice balancing of them on the new styles.

Several pretty good one's in the XD styles also.

A little disappointed not more in the Country and Rock sections.

All in all, nice upgrade.

Jim

I assumed they are the ones with a dot in front of them, generally at the start of the list.

Jim
What are the XD styles ?

Thanks Jim, that's music to my ears!

Bernie, the XD styles is rather curious to me too, I know they used some SD styles on the Audya from the factory, which are good, but seems like they would have created new styles!

Can't wait to hear them.
