BK9 back in house.. #5570
I purchased back my BK9... I reluctantly sold my Integra7, but realized I didn't need the 256 Supernatural acoustic sounds... The 22 SN sounds the BK9 has covers most of my needs(namely, acoustic and electric pianos, acoustic bass, jazz guitar, and drums)... and the other sounds like sax, strings, organ are all covered with pcm sounds. The light weight BK9 will be perfect for small jobs that are my normal.. The G70 will continue to be my studio (home) keyboard..

Actually, there are no SN bass sounds or drums in the BK9, Fran. Pianos, Rhodes, two acoustic guitars and the jazz electric (was there an SN Strat in the I7? I'd die for one of those!), a few horn and wind sounds that don't do it for me (maybe a breath controller might help them) and a xylophone (that's great, but where's a steel drum doing the same roll tricks?).

If you really need those SN basses and the deeper drum edits, you might find yourself buying back that I7, LOL!

Diki, How do I recover my response that I did not submit (apparently).. I know I did this before , but can't recall how brought up my draft.. My response to you was long, and I don't want to type it out again.

I've had this happen a few times, too, Fran. I think it is because the forum software times out a bit soon if you don't hit submit (I'll check with the Admin and see if this is adjustable). On some occasions I've been able to recover the post by simply hitting 'Back' in the browser (I use Safari) but sometimes this doesn't bring up the post. I haven't yet tracked down why...

Best practice if you take a long time to write a post is to do a 'Select All' and then a 'Copy' before you hit 'submit'. That way if you have timed out and somehow lose the post, all you need do is a simple 'Paste' into a new reply.

Forum timeout is now 4X longer than it used to be (from 30min up to 2 hours) so you should not have this issue any more unless you take a REALLY long time to post!

But doing a select all and copy before hitting submit is never a BAD idea, no matter where you are (just in case!)
