Hi Saul.Saul wrote:The Kross pianos are pretty good but given you are going to be coming from the RD700sx and knowing of your previous equipment problems I would probably not recommend the Kross for you. Although it is a very well rounded instrument with some great sounds I personally think you will find it difficult to use. I put this purely down to the small screen and the many menus you would have to click through to get to what you want.
If I were you I would be looking at the KORG KROME 88 or the Roland FA-08 both of which will give you excellent pianos, both acoustic and electric, plus thousands of other sounds which you can add to when you wish and you won't find any problems layering/splitting sounds.
I'm glad you replied here.I discovered that the Kross was the entry level whilst the Krome was its upmarket brother.I grabbed the handbooks for both and did some reading.
I figured I'd rule out the Roland equivalents to start with.I found some videos of both Korgs demos of electric pianos.I think if I sell one or both modules,piano and the expansion board to raise the money.
I found a good price here in Australia so if I can sell my piano,etc I'd be well on my way.
With the Roland I am able to combine 4 instruments and drums from the built in module and drum machine so I have to have that in my next piano at least.I'm feeling better about this.I've got all the original packaging for everything and its still as new,its never left my home.
I'll keep researching this to get it right.
Thanks for helping.
