Thanks for that John. I know that you enjoy programming. Maybe it's time you do this on a properly commercial basis. There are dealerships for korg for Yamaha for Roland all over the country. Could you bundle your resources as part of a package that dealers could then sell with the instrument . Perhaps part of the deal could involve them loaning you a keyboard for short while. It would be a great way for you to spend considerable time on the instruments and decide which one you liked best .

Believe me Spalding I have been down that road a couple of times ( even during my Roland days in the 1990s) but the big boys can hardly be bothered. Besides I always set out to do my programming to please myself, ultimately adding some stuff that is not really my cup of tea and then offer it to those interested. Only this week someone in Holland who had moved from a PA500 to a PA800 asked for my Resources. His comments on those are almost embarrassing, that positive I mean. I hasten to add though that anyone under 30 ordering my Resources would probably be slightly disappointed, whereas anyone over say 45 would be chuffed to say the least. So all in all there is no point in trying to commercialise this. Besides all of you who did contribute a donation have made it possible for me to move along from one keyboard to the next, so I ain't complaining.
Returning to the issue at hand, yes it may well be that a dealer will lend me a PA900 for a couple of weeks, so that I might start programming but that will have to wait until after October when we are having our (belated) summer holidays.

regards,
John
