ps: I'm not sure this is the right forum... is it?
There is another member who contacted me a few months back over the 88, I'll send him this link and see if he will chime him and let us know what he thinks by now.
Arp Quadra and an Emulator II. The EII was a pretty cool 8bit marvel that got me on top of the Dance music scene in the 80's. But I was happy to get what I could for them both.
I think the Konos is going to replace a lot of what the others are but it might not ever replace the ability to have an addition keyboard right there when you need it.
Good riddance of that Quadra, eh? But we were young and impetuous back then. Still have a dead Chroma and an RMI Keyboard Computer...now THAT's old!
The Chroma was a Cadillac compared to that Quadra. I had to turn that thing on for an hour before the gig to stabilize the VCA. I remember freaking when I heard ARP dissolved so I traded it in on something that I can't recall. It makes you wonder where all those keyboards are eh. I bet you could get a pretty penny for that Chroma. Vintage is in.
Check my blog now, I fixed the link.
Kronos X 88 arrived today. Wow, is it awesome! The weighted keyboard is the best I've ever used and the sound of this thing is amazing. Its pretty easy understanding it all. Great layout. The CP editor is a bit lacking but I'm told a new version is just around the corner.
Its so nice getting away from VSTi and back to no latency hardware like this. My next piece is an Akai Renaissance still on back order slated to arrive mid Nov.
