Someone working at my local dealer was at the musikmesse as an Accorden demonstrator...

He got a quick hands on with the audya, and he thinks its awesome. But then his current favorite is the Ketron SD5..

But the video demo's don;'t justify this keyboards sounds at all.....its way beyound everything else.

The only feedback I have been able to get back from the Pakefield Keyboard festival so far, (Where it could be directly compared with other boards) was that it had some nice sounds, but overall didnt seem anything special.

But you are spoiled with your wersi ears....

Uptill now can't compare an ordinary keyboard with the sound of Wersi and vst's.... but i expected it to be a step ahead of T2 sounds...

Until I hear and play the Audya live, I cannot make a personal judgment, the feedback is from others who attended the Festival, I did not, and I an also not attending this weeks Blackpool festival.

Still no answer on the master keyboard abbilites of this workstation...


Just wondering how previous workstations like the SD1 where in controlling and setting up midi other instruments and/or vst's over midi.

Bachus,

What were some of the Master Keyboard features you wanted to know?

Progress is being made on this keyboard and it won't be too long now before it hits the market. Some slight modifications to procesor (now going with an Intel DUO CORE processor, more memory, even more features ...etc), and the Sound wave table updated even more; so please just be patient and see what comes out of the labs at Ketron.

Its hard to describe AJ... but i'd love to see my midi fully integrated in the machine..

Import .ins files intoo the Audya and choose those midi instruments by name.

If you would want to make many people like me really happy you'd make it possible to directly choose vst instruments running on a remote PC... More like the idea how a PC controlls the vst's on the muse receptor. But then with a more basic interface on the audya.
(This will probably be wishfull thinking for the next few years, but it would truely be the next step in Arranger keyboards)

WHat i basically want is to save most of my midi setup in my song or style performance.

Next to that it should be possible to send midi controll data comming from the sliders of the Audya...so freely programming a slider to send midi controll data like delay when playing Style A, while programming it to send cut-off or another midi parameter in Style B.

Next to i'd love to see the possibillity to use the Midi in to alter my onboard sounds in real time with the incomming Midi CC changes.

----------------


I hope these writings are understandable to you as English is not my native language...

Hi Bachus,
if it's anything like the sd1+, it won't make for a good master keyboard.
( check with Miden as well, I think he also tried to use his as a master)

Download an SD1+ manual, then an Audya manual when availble & do a comparison.

That's what I hope to do .

bet wishes
Rikki

Thats bad news Rikki......

Espescially since the Audya is based on plain PC hardware, it would be a bad design decission not to put in as much as midi master possibilities as possible..

I think Korg PA series is showing which way to go with midi capabilities...

If the Audya wants to become the leading arranger station it has to be versatile as possible...with a main interface easy for the normall user, and versatallity in the lower menu structures to sattisfy the pros.

An modern arranger workstation could be so much more then just an arranger...

Bachus, KORG PA Series for right now have the
BEST MIDI ROUTING and CONTROLLER capabilities
then any other Existing Arranger and also then
most of the Workstations.
