    HAPPINESS to find this instrument!

    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.

    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.

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 ...

    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.

    - Aftertouch, pitch bend and modulation wheels
    - 320 voice polyphony
    - Sympathetic resonance on acoustic pianos + physical modeling
    - Total physical modeling electric pianos that sound like real _exactement rhodes and wurlitzer_
    - Custom tuning, change of temperament. Defaults to "equal" but can use temperaments / tuning for commonly used in classic.

    All these features make the Promega 3 is an exceptional keyboard, which can be considered a true musical instrument * * or as a master keyboard as the MIDI implementation is fairly complete, each section may issue its midi channel the cavier is splittable into 2 parts, so there is opportunity to play the left side of the keyboard with his right side and with another sound, internal or external.

    UTILIZATION

    I really like the keyboard. It is flexible while still heavy. It is touching to understand. I am not a trained pianist. Some would say it is too flexible.

    The general config is super simple! Within minutes after unpacking to control the beast. Big red button can turn on or off the different sections. All sections are lit all the sounds play at once (acoustic pianos, electric pianos, orchestra pad, bass and other). There is a button "To left" to assign each section of the sound to the left. The split point is selectable by a dedicated button.

    There is a V-pot section (knob an endless virtual) that allows each section to move from a sample or model to another.

    There is also an octave setting each section. The piano is too sharp in split mode? We just press the button immediately available and it's done!

    The motorized fader allows you to edit in normal mode the volume of each section, when editing a parameter of 2 multi effects, automatically adapts to the parameter value. Super flying the fader!

    There is a multiband EQ quite daunting, especially to customize the rhodes. Tip: also use the filter parameter menu sounds (a low-pass filter) which plays the sound differently depending on the section where you are.

    There are preset patches that are selectable just above the keyboard with a small LCD everything from classic. Each patch has its own effect settings, EQ, samples, filter, etc.. According to global configuration mode, it can also have its own pedal settings. For example you can set the stage Ped1 to send program change regardless of the patch. You can also put a volume pedal that controls only the volume you play the violin over the piano, for example. Otherwise, Ped1 may have a specific setting for the patch in question, such as control of the wahwah.

    Question manual shame about English, we note that a French version is available for download on the manufacturer's website. But anyway, it is not used much. The keyboard is so simple and intuitive that it is almost useless.

    SOUNDS

    Then issue sounds bad you can not put 11/10 or more!

    The acoustic pianos are electric as very good and very realistic. It allows a great expressiveness. To go further, I recommend really tuner (very bestial and base) with the filter presets and integrated Eq. I think the presets do not put enough value in the machine, it can sound even better if you tune. Consider this if you try the PM3 store. Ask the salesperson for tampering with the filter and EQ on the rhodes! This is necessary to drop the bottom two on the ground. With the presets, you will simply breath, which is not bad.

    Effects (particularly chorus and wah wah) are excellent. The dual effects are also very practical (like chorus + exciting, giving a pure potato in wurli), and downright adapted to the style of the beast. If you do not like the music of the 70's, forget the PM3 right away, it comes directly from one machine to travel back in time. on the other hand, if you like background music in Starsky and Hutch, then this machine is for you! :-)

    Also, the fretless bass, the sound of Jaco Pastorius. In short the big foot.

    OVERALL OPINION

    My overall opinion is that after 15 days of use, I do not regret my purchase. It really is the keyboard I wanted.

    It is rather specialized funk / jazz, very 70's (note the look of this machine, once it has, after it does more than just flared pants and wigs Jackson five!).

    This is a musical instrument in the strict sense. It turns ... and we play. Immediately. No brainer, no knobs to turn 50, not 50 menus to unwind, not to tweak effects 800. It is used to play music and that's all that matters.

    I almost have a RD700. I think the piano sound of R & D has a better attack, but it is too short (decay of the envelope unrealistic). The sound of PM3 is stifled, but it is tunable (filter) and behaves much better sound, expressiveness, nuance ...

    Blackheads
    1 / to move, some small problems with internal cards that move with time, predict the flight case is going well.

    2 / The warranty is only 1 year, 2 against all other competitors from the market. (Update of 29/02/04: in fact, seriously stores generally guarantee two years anyway, in my case)

    3 / It is a bit heavy (26kg, finally there is marked in the specs, it gives the impression of being heavier really), and cumbersome. Provide a well established stable (the refrain X stuff), and if you buy a bag, try this before! The PM3 is high! In general, missing 2 cm in the standard covers 88 notes.

    4 / presets - which are still great - but are worth the evil machine, damage to one based on it in the store. Hack with seller indispensable.

    In short => Of course I would buy that :-)
    Or do we sign?

    And by the way ... Did you know that Herbie Hancock had a Promega 3? Now yes :-)
    True!

    BUY IT ON THE BALL!!

    Update on 29/02/04: It's always so much the ball more than ever, and it's been almost 4 months it lasts. All my friends are pianists green with envy when they hear my rhodes customized sauce Herbie Hancock (thank you to the EQ + Compresseurr integrated). Note that with the A1 (the first piano ...), which can also play Chopin or Rachmaninoff with the same sound that a true virtuoso (ok, it's not very like me but I works ...) when you get tired of being taken for the jazz service, it changes.

For example the bass sound of church organ is not the height. However to say anything about pianos and electric pianos like Rhodes or Wurli.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Since 5 months of intensive use rpond it perfectly my expectations: how the piano! mostly classical and jazz with the bonus of winning during the holidays! Gnial simply, I believe that this instrument is a keyboard dj landmark! His only competitor seems to me to be the Kawai MP9500. The Gem was for him to be lighter and more powerful 320-voice polyphony 64 against. On the other hand seems to be the most efficient Kawai keyboard as CONTRL noon. But I walk the can be too much to the extent that I did not fully explore the functionality Promga noon, with such keyboard sounds I do not see yet the int rt of an expander.
    Given the quality and finish of this isntrument I find the report quality price not that bad, given the production technologies of sound embark on such a machine which involve months of research and dveloppement of ADDITION in Europe, in Italy and not in a third world country with workers exploits.

    I do not come back on the general characteristics. More specifically: I find it really ugly! It is slightly elevated, and suddenly the most stands, we can not add a second keyboard. In my opinion it was not necessary and would have been more discreet for the stage.

    It's a shame that there is no output as the XLR or Roland kawaii, and it's really no cons that there is no USB port for updates. We must send the keyboard in Lyon, while in competition, all keyboards that are "update", are easy.

    There is no overdrive as the Nord Electro, and that's too bad. Even if it means the vintage, all go through and "dirty" sound a little!

    The keyboard is ... ok. No more. I think it's a mechanical Fatar. I am a pianist and ... well, it's very usable, but I prefer the feel of the RD700 or at best the kawai mp9500. It is not heavier in the bass than treble.

    The built-in EQ: awesome! The rest is the connections and characteristic of any stage piano.

    UTILIZATION

    The use is great and intuitive. No need for manual or when so little. Great for the stage. Large buttons, presets easily accessible, a must. The motorized faders is really great. I wonder why they are not the same thing about Hammond drawbar organs that are going out today!!

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are great, I do not return it. A little disappointed, however: the bass. Acoustic bass is really great, for against, it has only one proposed electric bass, and I find it terrible: She is not serious enough and round and is very typical. What is good for the keyboard is not necessarily for the bass. It is the fretless is nice, but not always appropriate to the pieces I play.

    A 10 anyway just for the piano and rhodes 2 1.
    Too bad there's not a little to dirty overdrive sound. The effects are top notch.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Super Bécanne, which makes me a little scared, because the production does not seem as reliable and regular as Japanese products. I use it for a few weeks and a few dates.

    I do not think I bought it, I'll try something else.

    I tried and owned many model before this one. The price / quality ratio is OK.

    One more for the flight which is now sold and is very well suited to Bécanne (25 kg!)

    You can not really put a keyboard on top of a set as a little high, indeed. But this keyboard is dj above all ... 320 polyphony, which could be better? The pots motoriss the legalization ... the rest is the height. Enjoyable aspect, nothing to do with the cheap Japanese. Quite minimalistic in terms of opportunities. Touch is a good compromise trs. Obviously 10/10.

    UTILIZATION

    Trs easy to use, even intuitive trs. No need to open the manual. Everything is in front, everything is done online. This is the principle of a musical instrument I think.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Classical / Jazz / Midi everything goes. It is displayed on certain sites $ 3999 US 2200 was therefore fortunate to be close to Italy, you should take advantage.

    - Audio input with volume control.
    - Potentiometers motoriss (yes!)

    UTILIZATION

    Simply put there is a manual of about 50 pages! This is to say if it is not complicated to use! One has the impression that this machine is made for the live.

    - One button, one function.
    - Find a sound is very easy, turn the V-POD and choose among my 15.
    - You want to add a little reverb on the sound we have just to choose: we support on reverb and choose the type of reverb
    - You want to add a bit of string, the string is chosen and we support ON, we have the two sounds at the same time
    - We want to put a delay only on the string, click on SEND and then we choose delay affects on appuiyant efx etc ...
    VERY SIMPLE!

    SOUNDS

    Paf.
    L I enjoyed.
    For a long time I like to play the rhodes and clavinet other but it always does on synths. Today I possde the Promega 3 and is a big but really a great pleasure to play it.

    - All pianos are not good but there are two to three, excellent!!
    - The rhodes are really good, the bass are magical.
    - By removing the effects, all sounds are ringing! So when you add the fact wouawouawoummm!

    EXCELLENT

    OVERALL OPINION

    I fell in love with this BCAN!

    An excellent touch, sounds excellent, great ease of use etc ... what more!
