Thank you Ray,
Oh wow, I certainly didn’t mean it that way, but re-reading my post, I understand why you took it that way. I’m so sorry... I should have said that better. That’s what I hate about typing, texting, etc. When you can’t hear someone actually talking it makes it easy to misunderstand.Doug,
If anyone here can offer advice about your sound problems it's @CowboyNQ .
If his suggestions don't fix it then I think you are in the deep end.
Others here too have offered solutions and they are well equipped to advise you but sadly none so far can help you.
Your problem seems to be unique and frustrating for you. So where do we go?
Everyone here involved with your post are keen to help you.
What else can we do for you?
I feel your last post came across as abrupt and disparaging towards @CowboyNQ . Hopefully it was just frustrations.
I haven’t yet, but that’s my next step. I’ve been gigging 6-7 days a week, and just haven’t found time.Have you tried downloading, installing and testing the Piano instrument sounds I advised in an earlier post.
No worries! You're a good man.. I’m so sorry... I should have said that better.
Texting and driving! Tut tut! loln. I was driving home from a gig and that’s why my answer was short
Biggles, I’ve got 4-5 workstations, I really bought the PA1000 to replace our drummer on weeknights when we’re a duo. The PA1000’s intros, variations,endings, etc are so convenient, and I was hoping I could play key bass and work the drums with my left hand.Reading your last post and in particular what you want to achieve I am now starting to think that you bought the wrong keyboard and a Workstation would have been a better choice than the PA Arranger.
I have a Korg Kross 2 and can certainly set up far more than 3-4 zones with 16 layers in each Combi, I am not suggesting that this would be a better buy, I am just using it as an example.
Yeah, I’ve got hundreds of quality sequences, but the guy I play for won’t/can’t use them. Not to mention I always have to be ready to lengthen or shorten any song, since he constantly changes the arrangements, adding solos,etc.... and we do a lot of impromptu medleys.You sort of can do that with the PA but it is far from satisfactory.
The whole ethos of an Arranger is for the left hand to trigger chord changes during the playback of a Style.
You could initiate playback of the Style then change the backing track to drums and play them individually but then you are stuck with the backing rytham being what it is, the upper section of the keyboard could then be set to play Bass.
As I said prior I do think that it is the wrong keyboard for your needs, you could have simply created the drum tracks you want to use in your Duo in a DAW or in a Workstation, save them and call them up via the Sequencer as needed or even bought a drum machine which would have been way cheaper than buying a 1000.
Going back to you original question, have you sorted the Piano sounds to your satisfaction yet?
Ray thats a great idea... unfortunately it was one of the first things I tried. I even “exchanged channels” with another keyboard that sounded great, changing the entire signal path, to no avail.No worries! You're a good man.
Your response indicates respect and honesty.
But wait . .
Texting and driving! Tut tut! lol
Now I am not a techo at all but once when we had a distorted picture on our tv we were advised to change the HDMI cable to a higher quality. We did that and prob was solved.
Can the same be said for sound?
