Zuki, I agree, I have that problem with my Pa900, it's generally only a problem when playing chords with the right hand, but I have to be very conscious of it when I do!

Do you find it better with the Pa3X? I've heard people say it's the same keyboard action.

Zuki... there's a lot to be said for footswitch pedals if you don't want to look down a whole lot. One reason I think the BK-9 is so good. A seven switch pedal in a MOTL arranger.

Nice!

Anything you can do with your feet is something you don't have to take your hands off the keyboard and look for while you press buttons...

I have made my decision. I will keep the PA900 and return the BK9. It was a tough choice, but I'm more comfortable with the Korg, and setup is quite a lot quicker and easier since it is totally self-contained.
I have set up about 50 entries in Songbook and have stumbled on a way to make organizing them much easier.
I also found a way to eliminate the need for at least one footswitch by assigned Break/fill to Dynamic Arranger function. In other words when I play pretty hard (adjustable) with my left hand, it triggers the Break/fill.
I have not recorded anything yet, but expect it to sound a little different from PA3X, but not much. I hope.
I'm waiting for Captain Russ to decide if he wants to add the BK9 to his arsenal before returning it.

Well, it's finally done, Don, and you can rest at ease and concentrate on the one instrument.

I'm probably lucky I'm not tempted by anything else....yet!

So I'm hangin' in there with the Tyros4.

Doesnt this make you feel sad you left the pa3x behind in the first place?

I always had mixed emotions about it, however this is lighter, does all I need it to do, and I was able to sell the PA3X for just about what I gave for it two years ago. There were also some other considerations in my selling it.
I will be able to know more for certain after I have done a dozen or so jobs and done more tweaking.
I'm just now playing with the Limiter and E.Q. through my P.A. at "gig" volume.
Sounds pretty darn good to me. Maybe more live and in-your-face than the PA3X even, but that's probably just e.q.
I will record something later and if it sounds decent to me, I'll post it for criticism.

Here are two songs I recorded that also have links in other threads. As mentioned, one-take, no editing.

I would appreciate comments and criticisms if you wish.

No criticism from here!
Sounds so very nice!
Did I hear a female vocal or is it the VH? If so, not too bad at all!
