Curious about the different boards used in live performances.  My setup is mixed and changes from time to time.  Depending on the venue (club, wedding, indoor , outdoor, size) I bring different rigs.  I’m not wondering about sound systems but the boards you bring out.

My XF stays at home...regrettably’s weight and cost keep in in my studio

I use a Korg M50 73, Yamaha MX61, Microkorg, Roland Juno G or Di.  The MX and Juno’s allow quick splits, layers and semitone shifts and are very light.  I do get bored with on board sounds with Roland and the korg.

What are you all using and pros cons

I’m using a Studiologic Numa Organ with a Neo Ventilator and an MX49. When playing out, I mostly use the MX49 as a sound module for the Studiologic (the MX49 is perfect for composing at home or packing on travels).

I had a Motif XF6 for two years, but sold it because I wasn’t using most of its features, found its user interface painful to navigate, and wanted better Hammond sound. And now my two keyboards together weigh ten pounds less than the Motif.

Interesting topic!

I use an S90ES with an XF6 on top. Sounds good but weighs like nothing else…

I use the S90ES as the master-keyboard and make master programs for all the songs we play.

I’m very happy with the setup except that I would like som better organ sounds. On some songs I layer organ sounds from both boards and that sounds pretty decent.

I love small and light set up!

My current set up is Kawai K1, Alessi Quadraverb (program change controlled by Kawai K1 via MIDI), Gallien Krueger Keyboard Amp and K & M Baby Spider Pro stand.

In my bigger theater shows I use Motif XF as well- Mainly to trigger Sequence and samples. Because of heavy weight I am not carrying it in every shows and keep it at my home studio.

My next plan is to replace my Kawai K1 to MOXf and hence currently I am sampling my important sounds of Kawai K1 to Motif XF. (I have 1 GB Flash Rom Board on Motif XF.) Once sampling and programming will be done on Motif XF I am going to buy Moxf to use it on stage and will simply transfer all sounds from Motif XF to MOXF and will continue using this method- programming and sampling on Motif XF at home (studio) and transferring on MOXf for stage…

Suggestions are welcome… :)
