    New Korg Krome!!!

    Kudos to Korg for offering software-grade pianos and drums,a 7" full color display and seamless PC integration for a budget price,but I'm really worried that the Krome's synth sounds are going to be no better than that of the M50.o_O

    Novice advice, Juno Gi, best keyboard??

    As someone who has over 20 years experience with hardware workstations,I must profess,that I am very fond of them and to this day,despite all of the computer software I have,I still have a couple of hardware keyboards with midi sequencing built in,as I will never lose my love for hardware...

    What do you use?

    A friend of mine turned me onto Reason 4 & it was by far,the best recommendation that was ever brought to my attention & since then I've upgraded to Reason 6. For the purpose of having universal VST support,I also tried my hand at Presonus S1 Pro,so that I could run NI-K6 & Alchemy...as well as...

    Good inexpensive keyboards?

    Well...as far as new keyboards go for what you want,this is as inexpensive as it gets.You still may be able to take advantage of some year-end clearance deals at say,Sweetwater or Zzounds perhaps,but I think you would be hard pressed to find what you need for under $500(just out of...

    Good inexpensive keyboards?

    Check out the upcoming Casio XW-P1...it has an improved drawbar organ sound,plenty of bread & butter sounds..as well as being a monster synthesizer. There's a cornucopia of real time controls(a myriad of knobs,faders,sliders & such)..perfect for live use(as that's what it was specifically...

    Casio XW-P1 Performance Synthesizer

    I should mention also,that it's the same price as the WK-7500($499)which perhaps may leave some WK-7500 users wondering why it's the same price since it's not a workstation,but there are significant differences in other respects,feature & function-wise. In addition to the XW-P1 being a...

    Casio XW-P1 Performance Synthesizer

    Given all of the Casio enthusiasts here,it seemed only logical to me that those here would have heard on the new line of synths that are forthcoming..hmmm. :confused: No matter though,as I am happy to relay the info,because someone like myself,who has had over 20 years experience with the likes...

    Chambers of tranquility

    I'm trying to pick your brain & see what you all about & you call this whining?Fact is,me-as well as some others here,acknowledge your music and you haven't done so with anyone else in the last year or so,period. You simply don't bother with anyone else's music and I called you on it(which is a...

    Chambers of tranquility

    Does this mean that you're too shy to offer feedback to others here?I mean...in the last 3 years,you gave feedback to two people here..,.one of which,was a comment on the latency between the video & audio. I find it difficult to believe that you dislike 99% of everything that's posted...

    Chambers of tranquility

    Skipp, When listening to this piece,two thoughts leap to mind....Enya & the movie "Braveheart"...hauntingly beautiful! A very brilliant piano layering beginning at 1:51 and the choir sounds on that MO are to die for!:eek::D Are the effects from the MO as well,or did you incorporate software...

    Another keyboard/workstation reccomndation thread (sorry)

    Ogola, I don't really know anything about Cubase,except to say that Cubase is an audio platform that supports VST's and Reason 4 in of itself,is a midi sequencer-based platform,that has multiple synth engines and it's other instruments are exclusive to Reason 4 only. I know that in general,LE...

    Another keyboard/workstation reccomndation thread (sorry)

    Skipp, Remember my first line in my old post under the General Discussion category,more specifically the thread titled; Learning To Funk? This is what I had said; Woah lady...with all due respect,do you really think the Korg M3 Xpanded pianos are crappy?? It was my mistake initially,about...

    Korg MicroKey??

    What's this business about converting VST's to the Motif format?I am having trouble conceptualizing that. So then,the XS has this capability as well?I had trouble finding out that bit of info...just need to find the original promo vid,I guess. I found the Motif XS for 2 grand-which is...

    Another keyboard/workstation reccomndation thread (sorry)

    Ok then....I probably should have read through your post again & perhaps I would have been clear on exactly what you wanted(sorry,my bad). Assuming that all you want to do at this point is instrumentation,then I think the Propellerhead Reason 4 software will cover your sound needs very well and...

    Another keyboard/workstation reccomndation thread (sorry)

    You know....beginners are constantly posting on this forum and asking for a keyboard within whatever budget they deem they cannot go beyond,that does absolutely everything they want it to and this is why Skipp(the moderator),is not likely to address your request. She has however,created a user...
