NEWS FLASH! This just in, hot off the wire. I just received word from Musician's Buy that the Ketron Audya will not be available until January 2009. Also, still no price. Good things will come to those that WAIT!

Hi.

Today I could see at a local dealers website that Ketron Audya was put
on the webshop for order and expected delivery around Sept/Oct 2008.
So the (big?) surprise,...., nah not really, but it will be a real high
cost arranger.

Norwegian Kroner: 55000,- (SD1+, Tyros2 and the new Korg are priced
between N.Kr. 25000,- - 30.000,- these days)

That's approximately 10400 $ , or 7150 , or 4960 !!

Guess that will keep tha sales low if the difference to the other top
of the line arrange keyboards will be that much, or?

Happy Playing
GJ

A link to the shop, in Norwegian, but anyway.... http://www.gjovikmusikk.no/shop/cat/023863.aspx

Thanks GJ,

Pricing it at that level is like killing it before it's even released.

correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there will be many people on this forum that will purchase a $10,000.00 arranger keyboard that will not guarantee them $20,000 in additional Gigs.

Especially when you factor in that the base styles using those real voices will be limited in number (IMHO) and you will need to purchase either more voices or styles and or both.

If they price it along with the Pa2xpro and the T2/T3 then they would give Korg and Yamaha stiff competition, but at this price point they put themselves right out of the market.

Very puzzling, indeed.

Less then a week to go
BTW Cross out the sign and replace it with a $ sign to get the typical US price

Well! UK SZ members are now finding out what the Audya can really do in comparison with the rest. (Korg, Roland, Yamaha, Wersi, Bohm, Orla, Hammond etc)
It will be interesting to hear their observations when they get back. (The Keyboard Festival ends next Monday 28th)

I am just wondering, will this be a good master keyboard ?

How flexible will the midi part be? How well could it controll my vst's when on stage? can i assign midiprogram and bank changes in my performances?

Well, looking to how quiet things are regarding the new Audya, who knows what to come?
There most be something Ketron have difficulties to solve since it's been that long time
between the hype started and when it's really going to reach the dealers.....
Also there is very little "in deepth" info about it, even at the Frankfurth show, where
it's the same things played and said as done earlier.

If Yamaha and Roland introduce new top arranger keyboard models at the same time Ketron
does, my guess is that more people than me will take the time needed to compare and
explore before take action to buy Audya, because it will be a "wider market" to choose
from.
Anyway, the furure are exciting, and I'm sure Audya will be a real huge step forward in
technology compared to SD!
I only hope they don't leave out the things who really works well on SD1, and that the
SD styles will load and play well on the new "flagship".

Happy Playing
GJ
