Re: PSR 740 sold, PSR 2000 bought - first impressions
- Dear Carlos,
Here are two experiments you may want to try:
1) Given the Factory Registrations (which take up SOME of that
580Kb), about how many of our "typical" PSR Group collection styles can you
2) Try loading some Arabic or Turkish styles that have a "weird"
drum track. Try revoicing that drum track to the new "Arabic" Drum set on
the 2000; any improvement?
