I very much doubt if Korg will release any OS updates for the micro arranger, now seriously how many $499 keyboards can do what Korg micro arranger can do in its current capacity and sounds good as well,



I hope you're wrong, and they do an update...rootless voicings on an arranger matter to most pros (and many advanced amateurs), and this instrument is being touted as a "pro" level arranger.

Korg has been able to keep it very cheap because it uses 7-8 year old technology, so an update shouldn't be too much to ask for...they've added rootless voicing to their other arrangers because of numerous requests by players...this one shouldn't be any different just because it's cheap.

interesting concept, would love to see Yamaha Tyros with mini keys for $400 price tag, after all it is a 10 year old technology..

I would love to see a Yamaha Tyros with mini keys for $400 price tag(the technology, even at age 10, would have 128 note poly as opposed to Korg's 62)...but I think we're both dreaming (especially you).

Thing is, an instrument could be selling for $50, but it's still not worth a hoot if it doesn't have what the player needs.

Don't get me wrong, I think Korg has done a marvelous job with this instrument (and repackaging older technology, which realistically goes back 12 years (2000), since it is derived from the PA-80), and I'm sure you will be very euphoric with it, if you decide to purchase.

Happy playing!

Ian

That is really nice...I wonder if Telmo has tackled this one yet?

Whodat? Dnj! Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. (Sorry, my mind went back to Mr. Kotter days.)

That Korg thingy sounds good! In fact, it sounds VERY good.

Is this unit suitable for gigs?
