AJ,

if i remember when i was at your shop working on my XD-3, we can have 512mb option now, even though ketron.it mentions only 128mb

i believe you also mentioned a 1gb option perhaps to come some time soon

and now you are talking 2GB expansion.

is 2GB available now?

if so, WWWWWWWOOOOOWWWWWWW !!!!

i want this for X-Mas

As of now (12/12/12), Ketron 'officially' only has 128MB RAM expansion available for AUDYA. The 256MB I showed you is not officially from Ketron.

I was refering to 2GB as a great starting point that would bring out the best of this board.

Lee,

Right now, I can't (software limitation), but there is hope ... at least for 1GB in collaboration with KETRON.

As for increasing from 3 to 5 layers, only a new OS (and maybe even hardware) can achieve this with AUDYA.

AJ

please try to push Ketron to the 2GB RAM
and also push them for the 5 or 6 layers

that would be great to be able to push this Audya to even higher heights

THANKS

that's not what's on specs sheet for Audya 5 which you can download from ketron.it
they list 256MB expansion as an option smile

Leezone,

AJ stated thay Ketron is considering a 1GB battery powered soundboard. No ways we'll see this soon & it will most likely only come with a newer version of the Audya.

I suspect many, many better sampled voices will come with it, used as standard in the new styles.

So we'll have to be patient my friend & start to save up for it. I will definitely get one!!!

Keep well my friend,

Henni

I don't think well see any new arranger. Or shall I say any arranger to top the Audya. In a very long time. I would guess at least 3 years

What I could see is a watered down version of the Audya, a less expensive version with less features, lighter , of less quality. Plastic like

There's DEFINITELY a huge market for that, as the recently released half baked, half hearted attempted upgrade from Yamaha clearly demonstrates.

Cheap = definitely in huge demand, and even so is LIGHTER.

I think we WILL see a new Audya soon. Ketron is not going to sell the new sounboards seperately, neither will they trade in the older ones for newe ones... And neither will they install these boards without upgraded sound samples!!!
