I would love to hear your rendition of Galveston! I do it sometimes. We are not that far from Galveston and occasionally get visitors in town at the casinos from there.
It's harder to sing than play!

Don, I got the idea of doing it as a ballad from this very touching and interesting arrangement sung by Glen Campbell with an orchestra.

I will try and record my version (instrumental, of course)...still in the process of moving to new digs and selling the old house....madness...sheer madness this past week. shocked

Makin' styles helps me unwind...a bit! wink

Ian

PS...Did you ever record a piece perfectly, and then look to see you didn't have RECORD pressed. Happens to me all too frequently. blush

Thanks, DonM and Ian for those two last posts. Up until then I was fearing that this thread was descending into another vintage p*****g contest.

I'm a Korg man myself and I still find all I need to use (plus much more) in my Pa1XPro.

I agree that Yamaha has the edge in solo sounds, but to me, that's about where it ends. Features I enjoy more on the PA3X include drums, bass, styles, vocal processor/harmonizer, mixer, songbook, touch screen, build quality, facility for dedicated (yet lightweight) foot controller, XLR input, tons of programmable slider/buttons/switches, chord sequencer, effects strip, and I'm certain I'm leaving out stuff.
I'm very happy with my Korg, but it is not the PA600 of course, so it would be an unfair comparison to PSRS950. It WOULD be a fair comparison to Tyros 4. On T4, I prefer the screen (would be better if it were touch), ability to audition new styles easier, and many of the lead sounds.
There's also a long history of free upgrades that Korg usually does and the periodic release of FREE new styles.
Easy choice for me!
Having said all this, I could happily work with any of the current totl arrangers, or even motl.

I have barely scratched the surface of its capabilities!

Don very well said!

I have a Pa3x and a T4, I'm enjoying both, seems though the longer I own the Pa3x, the less I play the T4, but nevertheless I wouldn't give up the T4.

Could someone please tell me what TOTL and MOTL stand for?
(TTL used to stand for Transistor-Transistor-Logic am I in the ballpark or totally out?)

EDIT: As I've said, everything changes - LOL used to stand for Lots Of Love not Laugh Out Loud. laugh

Hi Notebender

TOTL = Top of The line

MOTL = Middle of The line

LOL and other text message abbreviations vary depending on the content of the text.

Hope this helps

Bill

One of the deciding factors was the very large difference in price. To go from a $249 to a $1050CDN KORG is a big enough first time jump. The S950 is too great a jump when MOTL is all new to me anyway.

My $249 KB must be a BOTL. laugh

I am curious as to why the PA600 isn't a fair comparison to the S910 (or even S950 once you discount how limited the audio drums feature is)?

Other than the harmonizer (which is still excremental compared to a VoiceLive or any reasonable standalone modern harmonizer), don't they spec out fairly similarly?
