This creative artform can set off many emotions. Music can help us remember the special moments in life. It can give us the chills and goosebumps, spark motivation or simply to just relax.
I've been playing musical instruments for the longest time. My father played guitar for many years. When I was very young, he bought our first Roland Synth keyboard.
This motivated me to start learning. As I got older, soundtrack / orchestra music of choice for its cinematics. I cannot read sheet music but do understand the logic but play by ear.
Technology has changed a lot over the years. It's always fun seeing new advancements in electronics. Today's keyboards can sound almost like anything. Incorperating electric drums, synth pianos and computers has allowed me to create all types of music. Some of the keyboards I've owned over the years: PSR-S900, MOXF, MOTIF-XF, Tyros5, MODX6, PSR-SX700, Korg Nautilus and the Korg Pa4X. I recently sold my PSR-SX700 & Pa4X with the announcement of the Pa5X.
Update: So in a disappointing turn of events, after months of waiting and having pre-ordered the Korg Pa5X, I received the run around playing ping pong between Korg Canada & Korg USA. In the end, I found out I wouldn't receive my keyboard any time soon.
It seems like Korg really dropped the ball big time and only sent a limited number of (4) keyboards to Canada.
Of course the excuse "due to Covid19, shipments have been delayed" So now the wait time increased to projected date of February 2023+. After many e-mails between different vendors, and Korg directly, I decided to go back to Yamaha and bought the Genos. While older, i'll keep it around until Yamaha launches their Genos 2. Very disappointed in Korg's customer service and their ability to keep clients updated.
