As to the original question, I find the PA4X to be the best board I have ever owned.

Folks,
I am not closed minded about this. I am completely open to trying any styles anyone
would send to me for the PA4X. My email is in my profile.
Thanks in advance to anyone who sends me anything.

Deane

Deane,
I was quite surprised that you didn't find suitable styles for your kind of music,as we are the same age, and play to the same age group.
I noticed on the Korg forum that you had tried legacy styles direct from pen drive. I had the same problem and transferred some to HD, then used Media to move them to user or favorite. If you tried some big band, I think you might change your mind.

Well, I'll chime in as a new user. I love "almost" everything about this 4x, but unless I'm missing something ... Korg took away a MAJOR tool that I'll miss: the ability to mix in an external audio signal AND still use the mic input. As far as I can tell, you have to choose the mic input or the line inputs, but can't use both at once. Seems weird, since they always had that option in the past. I'm not swearing to it yet, but it seems like the case. Anyone have a better answer?

OK, after reading the {gulp} manual, it "SAYS" that the line inputs are always enabled, but I think my unit is not operating that way. More tests ...
stay tuned...
OK - the diagram in the global edit window shows a signal path that the mic and the line ins share, but I only hear the actual line signal when I switch the input selector to "line". If the mic is enabled, I have no line in - this may be a bug. I'll reinstall the OS and start from fresh. Sigh ... I wanna PLAY ... not work! LOL

Great sounds & top of the line key bed. More styles than I'll personally ever use. I can tweak the ones inside if need be.

The sequencer is extremely powerful. Piano is a great stand alone. I can play acoustic guitar along with the drum beats or sequence a whole song and play acoustic along with the sequenced song.

Or I can just use it as an Arranger, playing live piano while the band helps me out.

This keyboard does everything I need onstage & in the studio....

I see absolutely zero reasons to ever move this board...

I'm interested in the PA4X. I wouldn't use it to compete with my S970 but rather use it for other types of gigs I'm pursuing.

Hope the observations keep coming. I find this a helpful discussion.

I see your post on the subjects of the Korg. I notice no one has anything negative to say about the board. I would suggest you go to the Korg Pa4x forum and read the posts there. They have what they call sticky notes and that it all about the problems they are having with this board. http://www.korgforums.com/forum/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=75
Read and then make your choice.

I have both the S970 and PA4X 76. I use them both for different venues and am very satisfied with both. The problem I have is going from a solid feeling Korg keybed to a light synth touch of the Yamaha. However,it has many good styles and sounds.
