One change from the 900 to the 1000 is they have dropped STS as far as I can tell. They are now using what they call "keyboard sets" instead. So that will be at least a minor learning curve if you are upgrading.

the PA1000 will have semi weighted keys and the 900 which it replaces does not. A big difference with the 700 over the 600 is 4 times more pcm rom making up the factory voices. That's the same claim the PA4X made over the PA3X and there is quite a difference in the quality of sounds in these boards.

Unlike Yamaha it really seems like KORG is listening to players needs... wink

I've never owned Korg. Can anyone tell me if the STS was saved with the style?

Adimatis asked: "More important, does Pa700 have THE SAME quality of sounds and styles, apart numbers?



My response: I've listened to all three models (Pa4X, Pa700, Pa1000) on SoundCloud, comparing the same sounds, styles and songs downloaded by Korg. The result, at least to my ears, is that the Pa4X sounded best. Second is the Pa1000, and then the Pa700. There isn't a big difference, but if you listen carefully, the Pa4X has a little more clarity and precision. You can hear each individual instrument clearer compared to the other two. I think this is how it ought to be. After all, those who pay more for the Pa4X should have better sound. smile

Thanks for the reply Dave. It looks to me like the keyboard sets will be saved as a part of the songbook entry so this might be an improvement over STS as you wouldn't have to edit the style.

You wouldn't assuming you like the instruments they choose with the style. If not, you can change them.
