Septentrion's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"HAPPINESS to find this instrument!"

GEM Pro Mega 3
Everything has been said in previous reviews. But basically, I would say that the Promega 3 is that the clavia Nordstage tried to reproduce without success ... (I know because I had one). Everything is there. Even the MIDI is great, assignable area by a wink (while on the North, it is not really ergonomic).
Funkiest really is just ergonomics. One button, one function, and everything is very clear. Live, what is happiness, you do what you want when you want, immediately.
And the icing on the cake are the motorized faders. Gadget? not at all! When we called her, all settings and faders automatically and instantly position: this allows to see each setting and respond directly without having to search.
Ined-ga-la-ble!
And look! A mix of Star Trek and Starsky and Hutch ... A bit Moog.

As for the 320 voices of polyphony, burying all the competition (even though today, at terabytes), it would be useless? Well I like being able to type a serious big deal, and arpeggios up right without ever agreement is cut ... and with sympathetic resonance, please! Or stack Pad to infinity, creating an impossible sound carpet with competition.

This instrument was worth 3500 euros at the time. This is the pro, it's heavy!
Double bank and independent effects attributable to each sound instantly, and dosed with motorized faders: awesome! The 8-band equalizer edited permanently with motorized faders and storage on the fly: great for the scene! Change MIDI channel: pif, boom, it's done. The audio mixer allowing an external source input: very good. The triple pedal if you want, etc ...

UTILIZATION

Keyboard! ... I personally do not know better. Certainly due to real hammers? To me (and I know it is still very subjective), it is an ideal compromise between flexibility and hardness. Very comfortable, very responsive. Much better than the Clavia, much better than Kurzweil, much better than all Japanese. Perhaps less "realistic" than Kawai, but much more comfortable and expressive.
My hands are tired of joy to find these sensations, and pianist friends who I actually tried last night were speechless!
The manual? totally unnecessary. Again ergonomics Promega is absolutely brilliant. My girlfriend, who hates everything that is computer and baroque acoustic musician enjoys using it, say it!


SOUNDS

Then the sounds ... I'll be as objective as possible.
The technique uses both the modeling and multi-sampling.

Pianos: While I found more realistic and accurate today sounds with certain banks Kontakt (I love the Galaxy Vintage D, or another kind Piano in Blue Cinesamples). While the Clavia is perhaps a little sharper (and again ... and then I'm sick to recognize all the sauces). BUT, what makes the big difference is the gameplay, expressiveness. And there, nothing happens to the height of the cuckoo, whatever the genre (classical, jazz, rock, pop, electro ...). It's a bit stronger than the same Kurzweil points without power limit Kurzweil. And if I want to compare Pianotech (since modeling), it is much, but then much more expressive. And small personal emotion with preset Köln Concert, which takes us straight to Keith.

Rhodes: NOTHING better. Yet I have tried everything I think. I do not know what it holds, but the power and precision of Rhodes sounds explode everyone (including my ex and North Korg SV1 I nevertheless appreciated). In fact I remember on stage, having been obliged to equalize not get on everyone (thank you permanent motorized equalizer panel).

The Wurli are falling. The dreaded clavinet (it almost feels the rope be pinched).

The rest: more anecdotal. A pretty good bass (without claiming a superrealism Roland or a Trillan), a very average electric bass. Very blah organs (there Clavia is well above without comparison). Groundwater exceeded strings. By groundwater against some analog not bad, especially thanks to sound interesting rug stacking 320 ways!



OVERALL OPINION

I sold my Promega there 10 years. Since I had gone through a Kurzweil, a Nordstage, Roland, Korg SV1, Yamaha ... And I always yearned for the Promega.
The have found (thank you Paul for having sent me!) Is a real treat.
It is not a "japoniaiserie" frozen nor complicated with lots informachin sub menus. It is an instrument in its own right, designed by and for musicians.

Defects, since it must be ...:
- Weight! over 25 Kg (it looks like he actually quite 40!). So whether it's starting a concert or repeated weekly drop ... Especially as:
- Fragility legendary Italian ... I've never had trouble with my ex, and I hope it will not be the case with this one, but I'm not going to leave my house. Especially since:
- More manufactured, and no spare parts. In case of failure, Oxygen Lyon monitors, but some components remain impossible to repair or remanufacture.

Against by 700 euros and in perfect condition, I do not regret a half-second.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

GEM Pro Mega 3
88-key hammer, mechanical hammer.
4 banks of sounds. THE FIRST is dedicated to the acoustic piano sounds with an accumulation of convincing Fazzioli trs, the deuxime is dedicates to vintage keyboards (Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet) and is simply fabulous ism and does all the intrt device, the third and fourth banks are a intrt rev limit and contain low, tablecloths and other gadgets which the buyer of this type of keyboard does not care about lost my mind. Only the sound of Hammond organ worth it in the bank that falls n3 trs well because this type of instrument is made in the philosophy of the thing.
There are two types of effects, a bank rverbes done everything right and a bank of effects frankly directs Rhodes and Wurlitzer (Wha Wha, compressor, trmolo, etc ...) which is really good . Both effects are applicable simultanment.
Connectors, which are necessary ... You simply need to see the manufacturer's website.

UTILIZATION

Happiness!
The keyboard is great, really no diffrence with an acoustic piano. It is a mcanique hammer and you can feel.
The simplicity of use is also top achte not knowing that this type of device for a good night schedule sounds from elsewhere (for synths are a) but above all for play music ... possibly more, it's more fun
The manual is practically not seen the simplicity of use of the beast ...

SOUNDS

Happiness again + + +
Gear, I had a lot and I finally found what I was looking APRS buying Yamaha pianos 2 (PF80 and P200 rcemment more that I kept. My goal silent for numrique have a piano as close as possible to a Rhodes. I'm thrilled! I can easily compare since I have also a real Fender Rhodes (MK1 73 ratings) (yes I know, I have chance ...) and honntement, I put in the blind test dfi make the difference between right and its copy ... The advantage of mga Pro is that it is much more easy to carry around when you go in concert and he did not dsaccorde ... All this to say that if you play jazz (like me) or ryhtme Blues, look no further. I tried the competitor in the Nord Lead. There is not one single second hsiter: The sound of the Gem is much warmer, touch is 1000 times better, and sounds of acoustic pianos Gem of the sink compltement concurrency. Only the high end Kawai that I forget the score but rference over 3000 euros is the comparison for acoustic sounds but the sounds are Vintages my opinion much worse. On the top of Yamaha P200 range, it has a keyboard a little harder and I think a little less enjoyable but it's got a case of his acoustic piano sounds are almost as good (but a bit too bright is Japanese) but instead, orients vintage sounds are very poor and can not Gem of the ankle.
For sound, I plug it on JBL 15 (great stuff from parenthse) through a mixing Berhinger. With such a configuration, we sometimes rpter for 3 4 hours without fatigue and with no time to play on printing of numrique stuff. It is my opinion the best compliment.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had six months. I have no regrets. I did not see a default.
On the report quality price is not cheap but it is clear that it was worth the dough and we really feel like a real musical instrument and not a shit gadget which you will get bored quickly (as my first Yamaha keyboard).
Now it is clear that target your purchase. If like me, you play jazz in a band, I think honntement that you will not find a better view of the sound quality and ease of transport (unless you piss with expander plug into your matre keyboard).
If however, you are looking for just a keyboard "home studio", this may be no need to invest such a sum, a computer and good software can do the trick but that's another story ...

Olif's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

GEM Pro Mega 3
88 ratings, 320 plyphonie voice, multitimbral 4, split two zones - 26 Kg
4 x 15 sounds (piano, vintage, string, bass / other)
2 proc. Cumulative effects: reverb + proEfx (delay, chorus, tremolo, comp, wah, phase, flange, ...) ditables
connections:
= 2 OUT audio jacks (L + R) 2 For the out jack (1 +2), 2 IN jack (L + R) 2 out headphone jack 6.35
pedal taken = 3 (damper + 1 & 2 assignable)
noon = in-out-thru x 1

UTILIZATION

The touch is super enjoyable PROMEGA when same but requires a little physical endurance as well as on an acoustic piano, which is plutt good sign in terms of sensations in the game VLOC r adjustable in 1 100. It "feels" really BCAN but in extreme environments (free jazz improvisation, for example).
Access in paramtres is almost instantaneous with a knob by function as the era.
We can mmoriser each patch with all rglages (effects, splits, eq, volume pedals ...) in 64 user locations.
Each bank of PROMEGA can put on a midi channel diffrent activated by a button on / off. All the usual custom settings are considered (by the volume fader PROMEGA, octave, pitch and modulation by the wheels, etc ...)
The manual is adequate but only for fun (the use of PROMEGA is so simple!)

SOUNDS

The acoustic piano sounds are excellent! In addition, they reproduce phnomnes acoustic Russi (rsonnance of sympathy strings, rsonnance diffrent depending on whether the damper pedals is depressed or not, the sound of hammers as the attack). The samples are of high quality trs no closure is heard (except may be in extreme serious background to the headset, concentrating death ...). They even programmed a factory his call "Kln Koncert" typing (reverb and qualisation same as on the album ECM).

The vintage sounds are monstrous!
phnomnes the sound is always the plus on the Wurlitzer and Fender sound stems mtalliques scrolls according to the attack (particulirement in the bass sounds of Fender). Personally, I possde a real Fender Rhodes Mark I 88-branch on the same system of costs, the comparison is bluffing with his eyes closed! Pianissimo playing the last grave on the right, we hear only the stem to a harmonic shrill: the PROMEGA too. The only small diffrence is that with the truth was even more of reserves to attack lgrement saturate the stamp (the kind of VLOC PROMEGA are anchored te 127, Fender is up 140), but it's really for the quibble ...
The Wurlitzer ralistes are great but the less I know the original to compare.
The clavinets are identical the original Hohner D6, especially on the keys are released (carctristiques noise). Try the effect with the CONTRL Intgr wha pedals.
FM Rhodes sounds are trsrussis (I compared with the real DX7), but I never knew what to do with his "rhodes" really typical of DX 80's, got question .
The string sounds are blah. Better to buy a violin for a PROMEGA This category.
The bass sounds are correct (bass, fretless Jaco in the bass / treble Caron) and sufficient to house an BMD or dial any more.
Hammond is two sounds pretty but without the Russian ractions acoustic piano / Fender.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it every day for 2 months and he rconcili with the sound of acoustic piano (before I did it more than the Fender).
Sounds monstrous, physical keyboard (even when adjustable for synthsistes slender) rponse the attack and feel sensational.
Possdais before I was an old Roland FP8 numrique. So I pass the 405 family Honourable the Ariane 5 rocket.
