I used the Pocket pedal for EV5 and dp2 pedals that the keyboard did not support..and the merge pedal was a must when you were midi..ing 3 keyboards...Pocket transpose was always needed..for JX10 and other units with no transpose..
Anatek had a brilliant concept...and they worked..

I still have a few Anatek units (Merge, Pedal etc) floating around here somewhere...no need of them now with the arranger.

They were some handy back in my synth days.

Hi Fran,
yeh, I remember the good old days, I even had one module that was monophonic ( goodness knows what posessed me, some sort of Oberheim) haahaa.
You needed 3 or 4 modules midied to even play a fairly basic midifile. Used to be fun, though.
Nowadays you just take the polyphony for granted.

I still like miding stuff together, but it's only for home use. More so the challenge of getting some weird setup to work.
I've currently got BIAB midied to my korg, with a mix of korg style & biab real tracks playing in sync while I record them on the korgs mp3 player. Useful, probably not, but it's fun getting it to work.

When I started to use arrangers on stage (90's)..it opened a "whole new world", not because I could play the auto stuff..that was great..but the possibility to use arrangers as multi instruments, with drum patterns that worked great...and plenty of polyphony...all the effects abound also...Arrangers are complete packages..that curbed my primary need to MIDI up...

Is MIDIing up arrangers important..not so much..more of experimental, and just having fun...Detail operation between two arrangers is still complex and they do not talk or play well with each other..but basic operation as we discussed here on SZ, does work well..

Scott, Thanx... I would have to say "Donny's Tango" lol.....
as it was just something off the top of my head while I was inspired by the English Tango style playing it on the KMA
