what if i added korg krome to it? then roland and krome or korg pa 700The Pa 700 will arguably give you better overall sounds and features compared to your BK5 but for synth sounds the Kross 2 or Roland Juno DS will both surpass the 700.
As you can see in my signature I have had both a 700 and a K2 and had them stacked.
The 700 does not have much onboard memory and hence careful management is needed, the Kross 2 is very good but its menu system is a pain, with only cursor control and no touch screen. There are about 20 tabs you have to scroll through to set things up, but once set everything is easily accessed.
One thing that I did not like about either was the 61 key keybed feel, so do try to play them first.
When you talk about the 700's on-board memory, are you talking about space for custom samples? True, it's not huge at 256 mb (linear), but it beats Kross, so it would seem to be a positive in this 2-board comparison rather than a negative. Or am I misunderstanding?The 700 does not have much onboard memory and hence careful management is needed, the Kross 2 is very good but its menu system is a pain,
The issue is not just the small sample memory it is if additional Style files are loaded then they to fill up the system.
I loaded Reuben’s piano sample which is a Must Do action as it is head and shoulders better that Korg’s prime piano, loaded a couple of others then I ran out of memory.
Korg Kross 2...update allowed many additional sounds to be loaded..these sounds especially the acoustic pianos that are imo superior to the standard Kross 2 piano sounds which in turn are better than those in the 700.
