The KETRON Factory style Hennie used in his demonstration falls under the category of REMIXED/BALLANCED FACTORY styles - which Tonewheeldude above has explained how some of it was achieved (which any end user with an existing standard AUDYA product can do with time, practise and mixing skills - minus the new Organ and Choir voices and effects ofcourse). Our 3+Hrs detailed DVD Manual and Tutorial also takes you through step by step, showing you how, when, why to do what with your AUDYA. We've also included work-arounds and solutions to otherwise challenges many thought couldn't be accomplished on the AUDYA and having this DVD set alone makes such a task even easier to accomplish. With the new balanced levels, all styles are now at the same level, so when/as you switch from style to style, the volumes remain constant.

The 120 New styles are those which for the most part heavily depend on the New Audio Drums, New voices, New effects, New Guitar mode, longer loops ... etc. Working in collaboration with style progrmmers Ketron uses (to ensure quality in the final product) such as Corrado or Marcello (for QA), we believe we've not only been able to breath new life into an existing product (which you can hear for yourselves), but also create an instrument which out-of-the-box, any player with any level of playing skills can simply plug in ... play. We've done all the hard work so you don't have to!

The core reasons behind developing and producing the AJAMSONIC upgrade are ...

1. Giving current AUDYA owners an opportunity to enhance their instrument with huge content, provide more options/features and maximize on existing functions within the instrument while also taking care of some issues such as eliminating Audio Drum timing issues. The good thing is they can have all this while keeping the keyboard they already own and paid a lot for. As many Audya AJAMSONIC users will tell you, it's like they now have 3 keyboards ... in one, espcially when you take into consideration the vast new content (with more to come)!

2. Providing an option to non Ketron owners to finally experience in a KETRON instrument features, Presets and content they have been used to and asked for (check out the amazing new Techno Dance, Hip Hop, Raggae, Ragaetone, Soca, Cajun, Song book [coming] styles ...); New Choir, Synth and Pad Voices; new Brass, Sax and other woodwinds with authentic Articulation (VCE-2); added ARPS (a feature usually associated only with typical Workstations) which can be used with the lead voices (single or layered/Program) or with styles and Midifiles ... etc.

3. Listening to customers for ideas and suggestions (current and future) and providing outstanding service to ALL our customers regardless of residence/location ... with no additional cost for Product Support. We are now working with some KETRON dealers worldwide to follow suit as well. You will be amazed at the wealth of information you obtain by asking a previous KETRON customer why he/she decided to sell their AUDYA. Doing this has also enabled many of such customers re-purchase a KETRON AUDYA AJAMSONIC keyboard this time around.

When asked about our products, the main cry had been the service (or lack of) - a phrase I believe AJAMSONIC customers won't echo anytime soon.

As our customers continue to grow, our hope is they can share their experiences and knowledge with others as well. It never hurts to help one another create and enjoy music ... good music that is, and ss we continue to see our customer base expand worldwide, we believe we are gradually accomplishing what we set out to do in the first place - by making most happy with a uniquely great product, provinging outstanding service and support they can count on via a company that truely listens to their customers. Our wants are limitless, but given our existing limited resources, we truely believe we are putting smiles on most's faces. Imagine what we could do ... with more?

Hi all,

Composed another song last night using one of AJs new styles. His work really, but really inspires me. Hope you enjoy.

I am really, but really enjoying my AJAMSONIC upgrade. It's like having a completely new arranger. The new "old" re-balanced styles (mentioned CLEARLY in AJs product description) plus the completely new ones are AWESOME!!! I'll keep on posting demos here, proving this statement.

Will I buy Robert's new styles? Of course!!! But they will not make my AJAMSONIC package inferior in any way or form. If I was in the gigging business, I would have been so happy that more do not discover this great upgrade, because this fact will eliminate my competition had I been employed in this line.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

My friends,

I find all this politics so wrong. From the first day I've received my Audya, I started fighting for it's reputation, everywhere I visit. So much so, that they've now removed my posts from the Yamaha forum, where I've blessed those with nearly 20 000 of my modified styles over the years. I guess the temptation is becoming too strong for many - many start to admit that the Audya is in a class of it's own. Even over here, on the General arranger forum, many are beginning to discover this for themselves.

Well, I've found just as AWESOME improvement in the AJAMSONIC upgrade. It is my nature to make those around me aware of the good things I discover. I did not lie when I promoted the Audya over at the other forums. I also do not lie when I give feedback on the AJAMSONIC upgrade. And I'll prove it over time with demos that I'll post here.

I do not for the life of me know why all the friction, & I honestly don't care. All I care is what comes out of my Audya. Whether it was from bits & pieces of other styles does not bother me in the least. No one is taking credit for anotherís work. In fact, I find AJ to be far too modest with his fantastic achievement. I've not seen him brag in any way or form over at any place, not even in his product description. Go see over at the FAQ thread for yourself. If I did not list his styles, he would most probably not have done so himself.

As far as the Audya goes, I find AJs contribution the most overlooked of all & hence my interference. So, I am ELATED for being open minded enough to discover this GREAT product. I make up my own mind - I do not allow others to do so for me.

So, sit back & enjoy the many demos I'm going to post over here. And when you DO see the light, your only regret will be that you did not see it long ago.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

I agree with everything you say about AJ and AJAMSONIC.

As far as your assessment of the Audya is concerned, I felt your opinions to be correct, if not a little lavish, as the Audya has had checkered reviews by some with former problems.

The fact is that my Audya has been the greatest keyboard I've ever owned and, thanks to your description and subsequent call to AJ, have ordered the premium upgrade and tutorial DVD's.

I hope AJ doesn't mind, but I feel compelled to say something about him from my experience.

I didn't seriously consider the upgrade until you started to "market it". When I called him, I found AJ to be very friendly and so proficient it was hard to keep up. He explained that he is employed by Ketron to field questions two days a week, although he gives much more time than that. This is the reason why he isn't always available due to his own business.

The main point being that once a AJAMSONIC customer, he can devote as much time as necessary to make you a satisfied customer. Of this I have no doubt, whatsoever, as he talked to me a good half hour. He has had unbelievable frustrations from other parties which held up the completion of his product, as well as enormous expense, but a great guy in spite of it all.

More when I get my new HDD installed.

Bernie

Congrats Bernie!!!

You will NOT be disappointed. Everything will take a while to sink in, there's just so much of it, & once it does you'll realize just WHAT you have under your fingertips. I've not been so inspired in a very long time. And everytime I turn on my Audya, I'm inspired anew!

And yes, I find AJ to be an honest, modest & straight forward person. When you watch his tutorial DVD, you'll realize so even more. And yes, just as I chose out of my own to promote Ketron & the Audya, so I chose out of my own to promote the AJAMSONIC upgrade in any way I can. Glad it proves to be worthwhile already!

The other great, but also much overlooked Audya resource is the Create Songstyle forum. I found many, many good styles over there.

Then of course, I have nothing but the highest praise for the Ketron 2011 sound & style upgrade. The 2012 one, really did not impress me all that much as we're not into that kind of music. This of course does not mean that those are not excellent styles also, just not to our specific needs!

Keep well my friend,

Henni

Hi all,

I'm on hold for now. Without being arrogant, I can sit down just about EVERY night & create a new song from scratch with my AJAMSONIC upgrade, I'm just THAT inspired with it. However, Monica no longer wants me to make all my own creations freely available on the net, regardless of whether they be special or ordinary. (Of course I'd like to think they're special, but thats because I created them & who does not like their own creations...)

We do not play normal secular music - in fact I don't even know anything that well so that I could just play it. The owners are currently busy with extensive renovations (breaking out walls etc.) at the small flat where we are staying for now, so recording anything with vocals is not so easy. During the day everything is stached away in the rooms so that they can continue work in the main sections of the flat. You can imagine how that must be for us. It's a real burden for now.

Please bear with me if I, at least for the moment, not post something new on a daily basis like I used to. Hopefully that will change soon. I promise that I did not choose AJAMSONIC styles selectively thus far - I go through them & then just flow with whatever inspiration follows. I have not even touched on the really outstanding styles as yet, they are just all that good as Bernie will soon be able to confirm.

Be sure to check here from time to time, as our situation might change soon.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni

Hi all,

Some Gospel with vocals showing how we use the new choir voices. I'm not 100% proficient with this yet, but we'll get there.

Keep well all my friends,

Henni
