I haven't any need or desire. All's good up in here. There are many other things I desire, decent active speakers, mic/stand. The next gen ipad comes out in April, will have two, yes II cameras. One on each side like some phones already carry. I can envision a new app type that allows the user to take two pics at once, if wanted, and place yourself in the other pic?
Yes. It's time to replace my DX7 and I'm buying the Kronos 61 just for that. The competition has got some time until I save up the cash, so Yamaha had better hurry up with their DX7 keyboard successor ;-)
Its a no-brainer if you previously had a collection of workstations like I did ( XS7, M3M, Extreme).
And since the Kronos has a huge acoustic piano, I can sell my Rd700GX1. From all indications, the Kronos will outperform all of my other boards. Its not easy letting go of my rig, since they are all great instruments.
I am looking forward to having 1 keyboard( 88) and all sounds under 1 hood. (I have a simple 49 key midi controller
for fast synth or hammond parts if I really need light action.)
I think the " Wakeman" approach of having multiple boards will be unnecessary.
It will be a good change. No need to access to 10,000 sounds spread across 4 or more
boards. I can always load samples to the Kronos if I feel it falls short on an instrument.
I live a life of fearless self invention
If you want to see God laugh, don't make any plans
Yes. I think the Kronos 88 + Fusion 61 will be the ultimate synth rig.
Edit: And I must say that the Kronos being out there has killed so much GAS. I used to always be looking for a sequencer/drum machine on Ebay or Craigslist, trying to decide if I wanted an EMU PX-7 or an expanded MC-909... I was also looking into getting into a DAW environment instead of my hardware recorder...
Now since the Kronos does all that in such a nice, integrated package, I don't want any of these things anymore. Especially since my wife says we can budget for one this year
I'll get one on Ebay when they go for 250 bucks - like the Trinity does at the moment. And remember: the Trinity got just as much oohs and aaahs and hype back then as the Kronos does now (and it was even warranted), so there!
