Hi Dnj,

Maybe for the same reason as some need to change arrangers so often.

1. I have decided to pack the Audya up for a while. Everything I am trying to convert for the Ketron series, has already been converted for the Yamaha.

2. On top of it, Yamaha themselves supplied MegaEnhancer to motivate playing with & upgrading new 3rd party styles (No need to upgrade their own styles as they are already there).

3. On top of the above, there are so many freeware style creating/modify software already available.

4. On top of this, there are a great many very able style modifiers/convertors/creator on their popular websites.

5. On top of this, there are thousands upon thousands of excellent styles ready to be downloaded for it.

6. To top everything, good styles really fascinate me. I intensely enjoy creating those.

I guess this is more the kind of environment that interests me. My Audya is eight years old. In all that time I only had a Yamaha PSR S950 and I only sold it because I HAD to at the time. I do not move from arranger to arranger.

Time to move on I guess... You can't flog a dead horse.

What's next Henni?

Since I don't have the same passion for creating styles, I have been very happy with Ketron products and AJ. I have my Audya and SD40, both of which serve my needs. I have been looking at the Genos and SD9, but don't see that kind of improvement. OOH if Mr. Mason gets one I may have to rethink it.

John that makes sense. I think they call that beating the dead horse"

The new keyboards are fantastic. John C.

Dnj,

Just like you, I get bored easily. I need some excitement all the time. To keep happy with my aging Audya, more good quality styles did it for me.

That's an awful long time to stick to one unit. If there is no future for 3rd party styles in the SD9, good as it sounds, I'd rather focus on something else as I am used to the same stuff Ketron so freely offers for each new model. The models change, but the free stuff does not.

Listening to old downloaded styles for my long time ago PSR3000 no longer impress me, even though they seriously did at the time.

Styles are getting much better and more advanced with time and as one gets used to it, the older stuff begins to sound rather dull eventually.

Henni

Hi Bernie,

I recently purchased a new S770. Apart from the vocal harmonizer, and as a direct result of the excellent styles available, I miss nothing over the S970. It was much cheaper than the S970.

It is not a Genos, but I am very happy with it.

Cheers,

Henni

You shouldn't hold your breath! I'm happy with what I have, and I won't be commenting on the SD9. As far as Genos, I think the PA4X suits my needs much better. Maybe a PSR-whatever-is-next for a backup, but probably not even that. If I'm still alive when the PA5X appears though....:)
