Korg PA600I am using this primarily from the studio aspect...so can't give an accurate review for people that are looking for stage use. This is a great keyboard. Very easy to use, lot's of sounds and it can load a bunch of styles from previous keyboards. It has a lot of what the PA3X has to offer in terms of sound and styles. I was looking for an arranger and was torn between this or a Yamaha PSR-750/950. I decided to go for this because I already on a Yamaha Motif XS. The combo of the XS and the PA600 is dynamite. Any sounds that I don't like on the PA600 I can trigger via midi on the XS. It is very easy to record using the chord sequencer or regular sequencer on the PA600 and also it is easy to change around the styles with different sounds and such. I also actually like having the built in speakers for something simple and portable that I can lay down ideas and not have to fire up the whole studio.
One huge strength of having a keyboard like this is that you can lay down a framework for a song really quickly. If you want to play your own guitar and string parts...just record the atuo-bass, drums and keys. Or record everything on separate tracks and then mix, match, layer, etc. Very quick and useful for the person that writes and records their own music. An I love the touchscreen. I know that different people like different things. Some XS owners wish they had a touchscreen while others don't. I am one who likes the touchscreen. It is so easy to get around and if you need to you can still use buttons and the data wheel.
All in all I'm thrilled with my purchase and thrilled with the quality of service that I get here at Sweetwater.
