Chord looper function. Is this also on the SX700?
External Display Capability...perhaps also available on the SX700?
Bluetooth Audio.

Worth the extra £874? What do you think?

I've only been playing my new SX600 for a week and living every minute. I managed to purchase it for £1450, which I was pleased with. I've been working my way through the functionality and learning a wide variety of styles and their sounds and variations. I've also just added a microphone and been playing around with the different effects and harmony styles that can be applied. Today I have been attempting to focus on recording songs to midi and then linking that through to a DAW on my laptop so that I can compose new songs and use the DAW to perfect the quality of the recording. This step looks like it could be a big learning curve. I've chosen FL Studio to use as the DAW but am losing a lot of the quality of the sound I had recorded on the keyboard. The quality of the sound is superb on the keyboard but when I import it into FLS 90% of that quality is lost. I used the Quick Recording method on the keyboard so maybe I need to use Multi-Track to get better quality. I'm worried that FLS might not be the right DAW to get compatibility with the SX600 though. Anyone had this problem or can recommend a DAW that might be better suited?

Sorry, kept saying SX600 when I meant SX900 throughout my post. It's been a long day!

OK, so today I tried out the Multi-Track Midi recording feature and managed to import the file into FL Studio. I even added a header track to inform the Studio about the Style and exported all 16 tracks. I'm still disappointed with the result. The sound is weak and not as rich as from the instrument itself. Also FL Studio is not loading up different tracks, even though I ask it to. All the sounds seem to be in one track. Hmmm! where do I go to to find out what i need to do to make it load better?
