Now that the KORG Pa600 and Yamaha PSR-S750/S950 keyboards are available in the U.K. anyone who as access to both the Korg and the Yamaha like to make a stab at comparing them?

Korg - punchier/better drums / less 3rd party styles compared to Yammy / have individual drum sound editing including efx even in arranger mode/cheaper than yammy (even 750)/gtr mode/ chord seq/ only 4 efx blocks unlike pa3x( yet usable)/touch screen/workstation like sound and seq editing/96 mb PCM ram to load SOUNDS and styles /songbook which saves everything including transpose data/plays Mp3 (750 can't Only wave)



Yamaha - better RH solo voices - Sax/guitar/piano/ horns or acoustic sounds in general,
more avail styles /not so good hardware ( espically if you use wheels alot )n overall drums/ 950 will play audio styles /more simu efx / more 3rd party styles out there than other brands combined/ more user Pc software / also claiming IOS support with your iProduct /less power in sound and seq editing/64 mb mem to load SOUNDS and styles,have Wave play recording/950 will play mp 3 and also have transpose and tempo change function

Nice demos of the S910 and Pa3X.

With all the control each board has over sound can one make a Yamaha sound like a KORG and a KORG sound like a Yamaha?

EDIT 1: Very nice clarinet on the KORG, but I think the Yamaha had the better saxaphone and one of the reasons I was wondering, for example, if the KORG sound can be changed to closer resemble the Yamaha.

EDIT 2: In Canada the prices for the S950, S750 and Pa600 are: $1900, 1250 and 1050; (PLUS TAX which in NS is a staggering 15%).

EDIT 3: I've owned a great number of vehicles up 'till now and I've paid less for just about all of them. LOL

Would have been nice if the PA3x of Careless Whispers was directly recorded. Too much background noise.

The Overall of PA3x was for Musicant which is only available through Parts of Europe. Should be compared to a PA3x without modifications.

Not really fair comparison IMO.

But yes the S910 did sound very good.

I'm beginning to think that the S750 is more value for the money compared to the S950, but as yet don't really know where to put the Pa600 in relation to the S750.

EDIT 1: I've read that Korg PCM is old technology and that Yamaha AWM is newer (better?) technology.

EDIT 2: The S750 not being mp3 compatible is a downer. Am I correct in assuming that an mp3 player could be plugged into an input of the S750?

Hi Notebender

The AWM technology was first introduced by Yamaha around 1985 (Although it has been updated), the Korg is based around the Triton series so probably around 2000.

WARNING: Do not but something just because it is newer; only buy something that suits what you want to do.

Hope this helps

Bill
