Yes I made the jump. From never owning an Arranger to the Pa4X.

I was using a Korg Triton Extreme for solo piano & my acoustic guitar to lead worship at the church as a solo musician.

Life has certainly changed....Full arrangements, bass and drums giving me tempo. The people are blown away.

Thet did 2 OS uodates in the last the last month, so they are addressing the bugs people have brought up.

I am too new to know the difference. It has worked out great for me and taken my music up several levels.

To go into service with a worked out set list, intros, etc is just fantastic.....

Was gonna get the Yamaha S970 but I wanted 76 keys and a sturdier board.....Glad I made the jump

Don so when is the PA4x coming?...
I know you'll be a happy camper when it does.. at this point it's not whats better between the sound & styles of the Yamaha vs Korg arrangers...it's all about the features, price,...& what works best for you navigationally for your needs as a player, .... keys

So do you use the arranger function for congregational singing? If so, how does it work out in terms of people keeping in tempo?

Thanks,
Chris

You bring up a funny point. I once played organ for church services and it was always a struggle to keep the people singing in time with the music. The minister finally told me to just keep playing and they would eventually catch on. They never did!

Oh yes, glad the PA4X is working out for you.

Deane, I've worked with lots of musicians that have the same problem.

Chris,

Well, now once I take off............they have to catch up to me, instead of the other way around....

I work the arrangement out so sometimes I will come back at the end of the tune and let the Congregational singing thing happen. I'm Contemporary, but I still know a few standards, but I change the feel and arrangement

I just put together for tomorrow. "Blessed Be Your Name", "How great is our God", "I give myself away", & "Shout to the Lord"....

My wife and I led worship with an arranger for years. We found that the key is to have a lead singer who keeps in time with you (of course that could be yourself) and the congregation will then follow the lead singer.
