OKAY. So it's nearly 6 weeks since I bought this (korg pa3x) monster and I love it. Way above my head but never to old to learn EH!
I've come to multisamples and PCM and I can't figure out how they work or what they do or where they go. Are there any vids or detailed instructions (the manual is hopeless) That anyone can point me to?
Unfortunately, Where I live, I can't get with other korg owners to butt heads on this one. I don't think anyone owns a keyboard or organ around here.

abacus. Thank you. It seems related to songbook which I conquered.
Ray. Wish I could be there. Hows Keith and Jim. What KB's are you all playing. Send me some email addresses so I can correspond. I'm really out on my own here.

Bazz66 how are you finding the PAx3? I have one and it's getting me Down. I don't have the time to sit an study the while thing! I'm thinking of selling or trading for the tyros 4.

There is things with the Pax3 that I don't need. I just want to play!

Sorry for the high jack!

Matty,
I found it is well worth while persevering with the 3x but I obviously have the time to do it.
The tyros would be a good choice if you can't overcome the difficulties with the korg.
I originally had to choose between the korg and an audya 5 and it was the price that swayed me plus problem reports on sites about the audya.
I'm sure the ketron is a good keyboard but it would have to have gold keys to beat the Korg. I also have a yammie 710 which I play when I just want to plat. Maybe you could keep the korg and get a double stand and a cheaper or 2nd hand KB that is easier to work. That way you can take your time learning the korg.
I do like a challenge.

Thanks for your advice Baz!

But I knew I should of gone with my gut....I love the sounds of the tyros 4...always have. But I just couldnt get a Tyros where i'm living at the moment. Thats why i choose the Pax3. Dont get me wrong its still an awesome keyboard...I just dont think its for me. I dont feel comfortable playing it? Does that make sense?

It makes sense to me. I kept a PA3X for about 9 months before deciding it wasn't for me. Nothing at all wrong with the PA3X. It just didn't fit the way I prefer to play. I am back to Technics stuff.

I do miss my 6000 but the korg is more than better replacement.
I hear what you are both saying. When the curve is all learning and no playing it makes for dull times.

Hi Matty,
what's the problem? It does take a while to sort things thru, but one only needs to learn as little or as much as one wants.
ie just study the functions you require.
