    Hi I just joined this site, I am a musician for a long time all my music is church related but lately I have been wanting to get me a arranger keyboard so I found this site. hopefully I will find some info on that type of keyboard from other users. My main keyboards are the Roland RD700 which is my controller I also have Yamaha MOXF6 Korg Micostation Korg N364 all of these I have hooked up using midi.

    Hi Monchito, welcome to the forum.

    It sounds like you have a very decent rig. Do you do any MIDI recording? We'd all love to hear some of your work.

    Gary ;)

    No I only use my setup for the sounds since I can mix the sounds from each keyboard and just play the Roland. We are recording a album should be out by next year crossing my fingers lol.

    What kind of arranger are you looking at? The big two are Korg and Yamaha.

    Don't forget the Roland BK series, also a very nice arranger, and Casio just introduced the very very nice MZ-X series this year which is also professional quality gear.

    I have been looking at the Korg Pa600 or the Yamaha Psr S 770 which are the ones i might get but been watching the Casio Privia PX 560 which has kinda of a backing band and its 88 keys even thou i want to be able to travel with it too me it might be too large even thou it does not weigh that much only with a good hard case..

    Part of the reason I was asking was that the Yamaha arrangers have a very active community, sharing styles etc. I'm not so sure about the others. If you're evenly decided between a couple of keyboards, that might be enough to push you over towards the Yamaha.

    But if a Yamaha is not on your final list, it shouldn't be enough to add it to the list.

    I do like the Yamaha i also considered PSR S 650 i might end up with the 770 but it looks like some of the other boards are aleast good also. I have been looking at reviews on youtube my local guitarcenter only have the low priced arrangers i tried the Privia CPD 700 and the styles sounded like the ctk 6000 that they had there . Not bad but i wanted something with more flexibility having more intros fills and i might have to record some of my own stuff to.
