I'll tell you what Donny REALLY needs, an occasional comma.

Just kidding, man. I tend to over-punctuate, myself.

Sure hasn't found it, yet, despite owning just about every arranger on the planet.. You would think, if he KNEW what he wants and needs, that he wouldn't buy ANYTHING until he found it.. (especially after trying so many out).

What gets me is how gushingly enthusiastic he is about EVERYTHING he owns, until the day he moves on. Sort of arranger ADD, it seems to me.

At least now we know why so few Ketron demos (if any).

Donny is a lot like me.
The main ingredient in our shows comes from deep within our hearts. The keyboard dujour is secondary to the show. We are showmen who use arrangers, laptops and WHATEVER (even chicken hats, aparantly!) to facilitate a show. The end result for guys like us is that the show sells. Period.

Don't hate because we are fickle with plastic and silicone. It's the music that ties us to the crowd, and my bot Donny can keep a dance floor packed as well as anyone I know.

I am STILL lovin' my new PA800...but that's THIS week
(teasing - it's everything I need right now)

If the arranger itself is so secondary to those other skills, why change it so often? You make it sound so unimportant, but we all know that it is the thing that Donny spends the most time posting about, obsessing about and changing, so often.

We all know already he's a busy man...

All that time spent converting SMFs, styles and learning a new OS could easily be spent learning new routines, or combing the hat shops for a new hat for the act!

I admire a Guy who can go from keyboard to keyboard and loving each one. My best guess? -- His true love is in music and performing, all the other things are just tools and things, which he does not marry.

My opinion Ya cant do this with wives without paying dearly but with keyboards its allowed its fun.

At least this time make him pledge that he will read the darn manual and not pester every Korg owner on the Forum to know how the keyboard du jour works, because this patterns tends to repeat itself every time: everybody goes out of his way to help him... until he sells everything, leaving all the "little helpers" with a sense of... how can I say? having wasted their time?
(Just ask the guys at Roland-arranger.com)

donny,
i have owned the pa800, i now own the sd1+, there is no way i would go back to the PA, there are too many useful hardware features on the ketron,and sound wise they are comparable,but i reckon the fills/intros will drive you nuts and you will have a lot of tweaking work to do to get it up and running.. the tc harmoniser on the pa is quite fiddly to get right, plus the keys are so, sooo plasticky, there are other things but that'll do i suppose....the only change i would consider now would be to the new PA2x or what i am calling the roland g80...just my opinion donny not a criticism of your plans.
hope it goes well,
dennis

Until he starts hating it...

Let's face it, if a guy changed wives that often, you would have a hard time saying that he loved each one... just that he got tired of the last one and needed to move on.

That's just called fear of commitment, NOT 'love'...
