That crossfading idea sounds interesting...not sure if I can do it on the Tyros4.

What about a volume pedal, Fran? That will let you increase (and decrease) the volume after the note begins. I can't live without one now.

PS...I use a old Roland sustain pedal (at least 15 years old)...the one with the rubber flap that lets you rest your heel on it, and it doesn't slide...ingenious!

MELVILLE, NY, September 1, 2011 — The microARRANGER is the latest addition to Korg’s line of “micro” keyboard instruments. Using its extensive Style Engine, the microARRANGER can quickly turn a simple idea into a complete song featuring a full backing arrangement. The specifications and capabilities are based on Korg’s Pa50SD Professional Arranger.

Following the composer’s tempo selection, chord changes and voice leading, the microARRANGER can create a full backing arrangement in real time, based on the selected musical Style. Each of the over 300 Styles is a complete composing environment that includes intros, breaks, fills, endings and four variations for a realistic performance. Each Style also includes four preset instrument selections. The user is always free to change any element to his or her own liking. These same features allow the user to play a favorite song, with the microARRANGER creating a full backing arrangement on the fly.

The user’s compositions can be recorded in a variety of ways. The internal recorder features step, real-time and workstation modes, allowing both the accomplished player and the non-keyboardist the ability to create and save their own songs with a rich backing arrangement – anything from a simple drum and bass groove to a jazz quartet or a full R&B rhythm section. Full editing tools are included to polish any performance. Songs can be saved on a convenient SD/SDHC card.

The microARRANGER features high-quality Korg sound, with over 650 professionally-created sounds to choose from. Four studio-quality stereo effects processors add vitality and motion to the sound; 89 Effect Programs are available.

As the “micro” name implies, the microARRANGER is compact, lightweight, and extremely portable. The Natural Touch keyboard features 61 velocity sensitive mini-keys proportioned for comfortable playing. A stereo speaker system is built right in for sharing the microARRANGER’s sound, or headphones can be used for private practice.
Pricing and availability for the Korg microARRANGER will be announced shortly.

If any KMA owners could possibly record a KMA JAZZ Piano demo using KORG Pianos & styles also I would love to hear it...
we all learn from each other.

Thank you

PS: Maybe the next KMA demo I will solo some sounds only...
