KETRON XD9 Keyboard 

The Ketron heritage is obvious on the XD9 Keyboard. The Ketron XD9 carries the pedigree of sounds and accompaniment styles that are a benchmark to which other keyboard brands aspire. Getting more for less, is a claim often used to market all kinds of products, we make no such claim here, the XD9 costs less than itís stable mates because itís trimmed to suit the needs of a different group of musicians Ė the semi-professionals and the hobbyists. The new Ketron XD9 brings all the sought after qualities of the highly acclaimed Ketron stage and studio products to an affordable price by not including the advanced features used in a studio and occasionally on stage; simple isnít it. How many times do you need to use a sampler? OK, so that can go. Four assignable audio outputs? Most keyboards only have two, (a left and a right) so does the XD9. A fully editable multi-track sequencer? Well that could be pretty useful but complicated, so how about a much simpler MIDI file recorder that can be edited on your computer? That makes sense - it all adds up, or should we say down? All the features you want without paying for those you donít need.

It still has some clever tricks up its sleeve though. "Drum remix" enables you to play a MIDI file song and replace the drum part of the song with the "Live Drums" from your chosen style. "Drum remix" breathes new life into MIDI file songs, it can change the entire feel and groove of the song. Try playing an old 60ís anthem with the latest dance style, youíll be amazed at how easy it is to totally transform the song into a potential Chart Buster!

The Ketron XD9, all the power of the fabulous Ketron Sound and Style engines at the price of an ordinary keyboard.
