Hi All. Just bought a new Medeli akx10. Saw it at a good price and no tax so I went for it. It looks like a pretty nice board for the price. They seem to be having problems w/ the Pa5x and I couldn't afford it anyway. I'll keep you posted. Bye for now cool2

Can you tell us what your previous arranger was?

We look forward to hearing about this new arranger

Diki, at present I have a Pa4x, Yammie psr s970, Yammie psr SX900, Yammie psr 740, Technics kn7000, Ketron Vega & a broke Pa1x so you can see I desperately need another arranger keyboard. I'm going to put a few of them on the market soon. To tell you the truth I don't play well at all so I need every advantage I can get. I'm a singer/songwriter presently working on a massive project which took a big hit due to my bout with colon cancer described in a previous post to you concerning your recent posts on your surgery. I had been considering contacting you for help about this massive project as you seem pretty savvy about things pf this nature. Get well soon Diki, Gerard.

Hi Gerard,
You definitely do sound like you need another one . Haha.
I have seen the Ketron vs Medeli post, it’s mentioned it’s similar to psrs, does it actually load psr styles? Get the impression it has a style editor and a sampler?? Only reason I’m asking I thought I read somewhere it only has a couple of hundred or so styles, but I could be totally wrong.
A few of the guys over on Korg forum seemed pretty impressed with the specs. The price is incredible. ( low not high😀)

Yeah, thanks for your valuable insight about the colon cancer, Gerard.

Please feel free to contact me about your project! I will help if I can…

rikkisbears. I don't have the board yet it has to be shipped. I understand it has 256 polyphony, 280 styles w/ room for 1000 user styles, 1100 sounds, 750mb of memory etc, etc, etc. I listened to quite a few demos on line and they didn't sound too bad to my ancient ears. I also liked that it has a touch screen and it's set up looks a lot like my other boards so I may not have too much trouble navigating it. We'el see about that after receipt. Diki can I send you a private email about the project?

I just purchased a Medeli AKX10 from ZZounds. They have them in stock. I’ll get it in a day or so.

The thing is, okay, room for 1000 user styles, but is the style format capable of reading other brands’ formats, or need a ton of work even if it can?

Being such a new brand, I doubt there’s a ton of stuff out there yet and little at pro ROM level.

I’d be interested in how good and quick the style header editing is. If Roland had an edge in any area, it was that one for sure. And if you import a lot of off brand and amateur user styles, it’s the area that can make or break whether that’s practical…

And Gerard, yeah, send me a PM. If it’s general advice needed, we’ll take it public, otherwise, private’s fine.

Hi, as usual, don’t think it’s available in Aust. Our mainstream music stores stock Korg ,Yamaha,Roland arrangers. Used to have to buy my Technics thru an appliance store that sold fridges and toasters😕, Ketron last time I checked via what looks to be a factory/storage outlet. Maybe I’ll check the Jewellery store for Medeli🤨.

The only clip I’ve seen on it, is really more of a Ketron Event bashing exercise , rather than a full demo of the Medeli. It sure sounded good, though.

The one thing Yamaha has got going for it are all it’s loyal supporters. The 1000’s of user styles, quite a number are conversions thru the EMC style conversion software. EMC style conversion software seems to have disappeared? must have happened during one of the periods I wasn’t checking forums.

If it can only load it’s own style format, no matter how good it sounds, it probably won’t be a serious contender for Yamaha unless there’s going to be a heap more styles for it. I’m pretty sure it has a style editor , in which case perfect for someone who likes to create or edit.

Gerard, I can’t imagine you should have too much problem with the operating system , the utube I saw , the guy was saying it looks like it’s similar to psr’s .

See if I can find an online manual, enjoy learning about new stuff, even if we can’t buy them🙁

Let us know when they arrive guys😀
