First, total agreement with Torch’s post. Further, exploring more with the S970, since I sold the Tyros 5. Waiting for the next PSR upgrade to trade-up to, since the Genos is way more than I need. Also, waiting for my pre-order on the Korg Pa 1000 to show, which will be my first foray beyond Yamaha. Looking forward to it. And, continued gigging with Band In A Box, along with arranger use.

This is the first year, in many years, I have no plans for new equipment...that could change of course. I would love to buy a Genos or SD7, just to have something new to play....just can’t justify it...$$$$ wise.

Also, I really have just started to learn all the options of my 4X and I still have the S970.

What does 2018 hold for the rest of you?



sounds like you need a Roland EA7 very lightweight, mic processor, and sounds very good.


You seem pretty happy with the EA7. Perhaps, but that TC Helicon vocal processor is pretty nice.


For the little I use the VH live I don't miss it at all.....
I use it more when recording backing tracks no big deal...


How do you suppose the keybed of the EA7 compares to the Yammy PSR S970?

The EA7 might be a good substitute for my S970.

From my experience, almost ANY key-bed is far superior to the entire PSR lineup. The only one I hate more is the Casio WK series.
It's not a question of light vs heavy - it's the spongy, feel and the short throw that bugs me. It's the only think that's kept me from owning a PSR in many, many years. If they put a better action on the PSR lineup - I'd be back in a flash.

For me, keyfeel was never a consideration - it was the sounds that counted most! And, Dave, you would be bugged if they hung you with a brand new rope. wink

All the best,
