Yep, me too, when I was messing around on a friend's T4. He was horrified, thought I was going to break it or something. rolleyes

The Pa is also very easy to use because of the lack of buttons it utilises the touch screen very well.

All iall I'm very happy with the Pa600

Hi Col,

Don't you miss the sliders at all? The reason I shied away from the Pa800 was because, coming from the i30 and Pa1XPro, I couldn't see me living with only a few sliders. The total lack of them puts me off the Pa600 as well.

Hi 124

I've just had 9 mth spell with the KMA so i./ve got used to no sliders. The screen on the pa600 is so easy to use that just touching a track then using the data wheel to make the alterations is not a real problem.

Selecting performances which I hardly ever used on Pa2x is a doddle because the buttons are so close to the right hand.

Style seection I always did through the screen before so that seems normal. I have loaded a blank songbook and am in the middle of loading all my numbers.

One thing I have just discovered that the lyric screen has three diffrent sizes of text on the smallest one it displaays eight lines quite esasy to read and a quick tap on the screen pages up and down one page at a time. Very easy.

I,m not to keen on the balance knob as on the KMA and the Pa800 I assigned one slider to expression and the other to accom volume. You can assign the second knob to accomp vol or balance I'm not sure which to use as yet I suppose I'll learn to live with one or the other. It's a small price to pay for what is proving to be a cracking piece of kit. It would have been nice to have another knob to assign. I suppose could use my EXP-2 pedal assigned to expression, thinking about it I'll give that a try I 've never used an expression pedal since the organ day's.

All the other bits and pieces seem easy to use, as yet.

Time will tell.

Weight which is why I sold the Pa2x seems very manageable even for a 70 year old codger like me.

Regards

Col

Thanks for that, Col. You're right though, it's all in the adaptation and getting used to doing things a different way. I don't like that knob idea, either. Seems to me that a slider is more tactile and easier to judge in the split second you sometimes have to make an adjustment.

The weight thing would be a major factor as I'm only a whisker behind you in age. It's a bugger, innit? smile

Cheers, 124
