Cash up front is a good start ( if you got it). It looks good, but no Midi to Styles ( dropped from PA4X I believe!

MIDI EDIT item is still missing.

Missing option could be activated in UpDates if Korg decide to do.

Midi To Style needed improving anyway.

The Pa4X only received the features in OS updates.

Expect the same (eventually) OS feature inclusions and Updates at some much later time ie in two to three years
