No.  No one has heard or tried the S950 yet, so there cannot be a comparison yet until someone can try them both out.

They JUST started selling the Korg.  I doubt if many people have one yet.  I don't believe they are available in U.S. yet.

Hello.
Precisely today I have seen a few videos of the KORG PA-600 and the sounds and rhythms are very, very good.
I am waiting to seeing on that the PSR-S950 comments of, to decide.

An S-950 is now in the hands of George Kaye, a yamaha dealer in California. He has just one, and not had time to thoroughly go through it to post much of a review.
Hopefully he will soon get a chance to post some clips etc.

I think, both together would be a good twin key and cover many many needs.

Well, both keyboards are limited in polyphony and in layering sounds and 61 key are not so much. I think, PSR S950 and PA 600 together are more powerful, than a PA 3 or Tyros 4 alone.
In PSR S950 I would miss one thing only - 3 right parts and the harmony multi assign for these 3 parts.
Kind regards

In Canada the prices for the S950, S750 and Pa600 are: $1899, 1249 and 1050 (PLUS TAX).

I'm hoping that someone who has access to all three might give us some clues.


Obviously the S950 has a vocal harmonizer and the Pa600 has a large 7", bright, backlit TouchView™ color TFT display (800x480).

You can listen some mp3 demos of the Korg Pa600 here http://soundcloud.com/korg/sets/pa600_demos_solo-instruments/
I can't say it sounds very good. Maybe that's way is priced only about half of the S950.

The best way to compare keyboards is you own self. Only you know whats right and feels sounds right for you.
Find a place who has both or one and then the other and drive to where they are and play- play- play
Usually your 1st impression is the right one-Go back if you have too
Any good player can make a decent or less keyboard sound more then what it is; but only you can make the final decision after you try them.

Unfortunately, in Canada neither the KORG Pa600 or the Yamaha PSR-S750/S950 are available yet.  ETA for both has been quoted as November sometime.

Other than the odd exception, the U.K. seems to be the only area where dealers have been selling both of them.

AWM is simply a label. In general, Korg sounds more acoustic, than Yamaha. Yamaha wants more transparency, when you play big arrangements. I think, Korg and Yamaha are both very good and Yamaha is allowed to be a little better for it's price difference.

I had the keyboard version of BK5 and returned it for the module. The keybed was too cheap... It is actually mega fun to midi sync PSR910 with BK5 and play styles on both and change diff combinations. The roland styles are more "live" , the yamaha styles are more "produced". When you combine it....

I think both yamaha and korg don't really change that much in sound. The 950 will sound pretty much like 910 and PA600 like PA500. Korg usually adds lot of extra goodies, but it often become a big mess. I was playing with PA3X and there were simple things that I couldn't figure out without manual at all.

I think you might have confused the BK5 arranger keyboard with the BK7 arranger module. Am I right?

I had a BK7m for some time and loved it.  Wish I hadn't sold it.  I tried BKm for a couple of days.  It is a nice keyboard, but I much prefer the module and an external controller.  It allows for much more control and lets you access features you can't reach directly from the kb OR the module.

Hey, Korg is really trying to underprice yamaha. Even the PA3x is half of T4.
Well, after Oasys I promised never ever to give money to Korg, but for someone not as prejudiced, Korg could be a good deal.

Hi DonM,

When I am well informed you own a Korg PA3X, am I right ?
A friend of mine wants to buy one.
He already owns a S950, a Roland but wants to add the Korg.

Can he contact you privately for more information ?

Plse advise. Thanks and best regards, Jeff

I currently own the Yamaha S950 and just sold my Korg PA600.   I had them side by side for a week.   Both are very good keyboards.

1.  S950 can layer 2 voices  the PA600 3.
2.  S950 has VH PA600 does not.
3.  S950 has literally thousands of styles available - Korg PA600 not so much.
4.  S950 still uses a "brick" power supply.  PA600 uses a cord.
5.  Both have built-in speakers
6.  S950 keybed has a "cheap" feel.  PA600 has better keybed feel.
7.  S950 styles seem to be useful for all kinds of music.  PA600 styles seem to
     be designed for more modern music.
8.  S950 can be used on a gig right out of the box.  PA600 needs a lot of
     tweaking.
9.  S950 still uses Yamaha's outdated user interface.  PA600 has a really neat and
     and easy to use touch screen user interface.   
10.  S950 styles are much easier to load and audition than are the PA600 styles.
11.. S950 factory presets are protected and can't be changed.  PA600 factory
       presets can be altered or deleted and replaced.
12.  S950 has overwhelming user community support.  PA600 not so great.

Hope this helps.

After listening to and watching all the video demos of the PA800 I decided to buy one.  I actually got the  only one sold to a customer in the US at the time.   Once it arrived I set it up and began going through the quick start guide and auditioning styles and performances.  It became glaringly apparent the demos in no way reflected what sat in front of me.   

First - unlike the PA1x or PA2Xpro, which I owned, there were very few styles that matched up withthe music I play on gigs. 
 
Second - to get the "demo like" sound from the PA600 was going to take me months on end of
tweaking not only OTS settings but the sounds themselves!   Not my cup of tea.

The keyboard is a good one but simply did not fit my gigging needs.

For me, "Pro" is the higher price range, made for stage use. PA3x and Tyros 4, Motif and Fantom etc.
Both keyboards, PA 600 and PSR S950 are not really pro. For the singing entertainer, the PSR S950 would be better, because Vocal Harmony, for keyboard players that want to edit and want to get free styles, the PA 600 would be better and some folks use both or may combine a used PSR S910 with the PA 600.

I tend to disagree with that assumption entirely.   I have played gigs with all kinds of
gear including my Tyros 4, my S950, my  Korg MicroArranger, a PSR3000, a Korg PA1X, a Korg PA2X Pro, A Roland E50, and a Roland E80.  

I owned both the S950 and the PA600 and I assure you the PA600 is as much of a Pro tool
as anything else out there for live gigging.   There are people making a living with the Korg PA500
and play nearly 300  gigs yearly.  

One of the charter members on this forum plays almost 400 gigs a year using a PSR3000.

Price alone does not make a keyboard a "Pro" version.

Sorry, but Korg does not list sampling in the specs for the PA-600.

Both, the S950 and the PA-600, do offer additional sounds(voices) for purchase from the manufacturers "only".

Comosus,
1.  Both the S950 and the PA600 use multi pads.
2   S950 uses registrations - the PA600 performances.
3.  S950 has a MusicFinder the PA600 the Songbook feature.
4.  S950 display is inferior to the PA600 display.


Deane

can we assign .wav files to multipad in pa600 as in S950

Why not compare the Korg PA600 with our PSRS750 instead of the S950 ?

Sorry, but Korg does not list sampling in the specs for the PA-600.

Both, the S950 and the PA-600, do offer additional sounds(voices) for purchase from the manufacturers "only".

Hello Bill. You are right. There is not sampling capabilities on PA-600. Instead of that, I was able to find some software to create .SET files (SET files are the KORG's YEP files), but I am not able to find any software to create YEP files, (from Yamaha or from the community). However,  I don't know why both companies don't allow us to create our expansion files!

Beyond that, PA-600 allow you to create new sounds changing the DCO's parameters (24 OSC PER SOUND!!!), while the PSR-S9XX allow you only to modify certain parameters, but not at oscillator level. That is, for me, a very big difference.

DariusBic,

I know of at least one person who has made a Yep file, but he has not made his method available - yet.

Keep in mind the S950 has only been available for just a month now and the Korg system has been around for a longer time.

I wasn't going to do anything today - so far, I'm on schedule, :)

In W-European countries Yamaha are the arranger keyboard market leader. Maybe all over the world now.
Korg's market share is a lot smaller, very small, I guess.
 
Korg keyboards are not plug-and-play instruments but their sound is OK.

Here inThe Netherlands most Korg customers are people from the Middle East and/or North Africa.

What are  DCO's parameters? what are the advantages?
