    Hey guys, I'm a keyboard player, and I am looking to buy a professional Arranger and my options are as above.
    A little about myself,
    I play the keyboard in the church and I'm sort of like a one man band, so therefore I need an Arranger with external speakers, sometimes I plug it directly into the output.
    I've heard good reviews about the Korg and Yamaha, but not many reviews about the Roland.
    I'm hoping I'll get more information from you all, and looking forward to suggestions and opinions!
    Thanks in advance!

    I prefer the PSR s970, the features facilities and the 512mb memory of samples.

    There is a huge support community for Yamaha arrangers. These people share new style files, and give lots of advice as to creating your own style files. If all else is equal, I'd look seriously at the Yamaha.

    Oh, right. The site is psrtutorial.com.

    The Yamaha has great sounds, but I do not like the keyboard feel - very cheap, even compared to the older PSR900. The Korg PA900 is great and has the better keyboard feel ( in my opinion) and has better ( read a couple of different) features. One being the slide in the middle to play two different midi / mp3 files. It has a vocal remover ( test it to compare it with the PSR 970) . Also it supports the EC5 pedal board - great for change things with your feet.

    Can you find the actual keyboards to play? Keyboard feel is subjective, and what tassiespirit hates might not be a problem for you at all. Or you could be in complete agreement with tassiespirit.

    (If you're testing out the keyboards in a store, you should buy something from the store to pay them back for the time you spend. Yeah, if you can get the keyboard on line you could save a bunch. But buy your cords or something from the store.)

    I've been looking at the same 3 arrangers. I've always been mainly a Roland guy, but after watching lots of demos/etc. on YouTube, I'm kind of leaning toward the Korg, mainly due to their extensive song library. Thoughts?
