  • Lowrey Aria Pro EX6000 Demo

    The ultimate organ/keyboard (The Lowrey Marquee EX5000) has just been eclipsed by the Aria Pro EX6000, however if you are of a nervous disposition be careful as you may become depressed with your current instrument, (I can already see 10s of thousands of cheque books opening all around the world to get the latest and greatest) once you have seen the videos. (4 in Total) :->

    Enjoy

    Bill

      I was watching the videos when they were removed by the user, Allens presumably.

      Sorry, Seamaster, you’ve lost me with your post.

        I got to see the latest incarnation of Fake It! before the videos were pulled.

          Why have these videos been pulled, is it a con?

            One can only assume that there was a problem with the videos or some information in them was incorrect, and thus Allen’s Music pulled them to get it fixed. (It’s unusual for Allen’s Music to produce a bad Lowrey video)

              What was unusual for Allens was that they didn't disable comments this time round. Very unlike them to invite any feedback.

                    Give me a Wersi anyday. An organ for all types of organist? I think not. Those flutes are horribly digital. I dont know how Lowrey keep going. What inout di Kawai really have? Or is it a matter of as long as its making money who cares. I really think Lowreys are crap. Except my Heritage DS01 and Contempo 80 which are brilliant organs even now.

                      I think it is a brilliant video. Nicely played and an impressing organ.

                      Seamaster - you will be dissapointed! Not even the rhythm unit used until minute 16! Fake it starts at 33:00, but in a not too silly way as additional accompaniment on the lower keys ;-)

                      The „jazz“ organ sounds a little „1984 Wersi-ish“ to me, not like a Hammond.
                      Playing Hammond Aurora Classic & XE2, Hohner E3, Roland G800 & AT500.

                        There are some nice things in here, though nothing really 'new'. The 'Orchestrator' (A Hammond Suzuki trademark, possibly!) seems to be nothing different to the Ensemble feature on Yamaha's Tyros 5 and Genos keyboards, though on those two you can control the instrumentation, how it's used and choose to play the four notes yourself. An ex Baldwin demonstrator told me that they once had assignable harmonies and I think Technics toyed with it too. 'Fake It' started life back in 1989, as 'One Finger Ad Lib' on the little Kawai MS710 keyboard - though now it's 'No Fingers Ad Lib'. And, if you have a little time, some free software and the ability to play well enough in the key of C, you can add these 'fake it' phrases into any of the 'unused' parts of a style on a Yamaha or into a Multipad.

                        I'm not personally convinced by the theatre organ sounds. The AT900P leaves it standing, from what I hear, but as always I never judge on what I see and hear on Youtube. I'd love to hear one in person but it seems Allens have changed their policy on taking the instruments out to the organ festivals, preferring to do things in store and on-line. That's a shame, as I'd love to play one. Perhaps one day, when I'm visiting my son, I'll sneak in a trip to Great Yarmouth and see if Trevor and Tom will let me loose on one!

                        What influence do Kawai have, you ask. Kawai build the instruments in their Malaysian plant, of course, and they also supply all the raw samples. I'm told that Lowrey's team then do all the voicing and design, but again it will be Kawai's engineers who do the task of converting what they want into the finished product.

                        Oh, and I'm still waiting for Aria Guitars to tell Lowrey that they've borrowed a trademark or two!
                        It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

                          If there is a trademark issue I have already suggested a name change: Aria 51!

                              A windows PC in a chipboard box covered in carpaint, versus a jukebox in Granny's dresser with letters over the keys. Has it come to this?
