Leezone & Robbo - it's NOT hardware that's coming out in May!! It's NOT AJAM!! It's to load straight into your existing Audya!! Should be GREAT with the new upcoming OS for Audya - I will CERTAINLY buy it!! I'm not trying to tease everyone, just trying to keep all this ALIVE!! Carl

Guess we've all seen what happens when Ketron hype start.
Big hype, then years of delay, high price level and followed by users who have long time problems.
I once was a Ketron fan, sadly Ketron scared me away by the well known Audya story.

The higher the hype, the harder the disappointments. cry

Cheers
GJ

DELAY: There was a delay with the Audya release due to the nature of the brand new technology...a technology that none of the larger manufacturers have been able to match.

PRICE: The Audya was 100 LESS than the Tyros Three when released.

PROBLEMS:I can't comment on those as we never experienced any major issues in the UK, they all seemed to be from half a dozen or so international users that posted a HUGE ammount of stuff which fuelled massive response from a number of individuals here on SZ that had not even tried an Audya (the 100% imaginary problem with complex chords and so called hardware changes that Ketron was allegedly keeping a big secret).

TONEWHEELDUDE has already revealed that Ketron UK will be making announcements in April - this is a genuine product that we can all enjoy and afford!! Just you wait and see - it's REALLY exciting news!!! Hang on guys! Carl

I may be wrong but I still have faith in Ketron.

Is their marketing and support good ? No

Have there been bugs in the OS ? Yes

Have they been on time with upgrades ? No

We can go back and forth forever as to why ?

The fact remains that their technology is cutting edge, and the Audya still is the best sounding keyboard IMO.

They are small, with inherent problems, but they have been in the game for awhile and am sure they intend to overcome the negative issues.

load where? isn't Audya pretty much FULL already?
i assume we'll have to expand our RAM?

and also, is this 1or 2 new things being SHOWN in April, May?
or being RELEASED?

big difference there !!!

Will All this be shown at the Musikmesse next week?
Or just a new OS possibly?

I hope Ketron will attend with more than just the same "old" AUDYA. smile
