It's like a cleaner K1 with filters, which potentially makes it sound much better, *and* be more flexible and useful.

Which means you'll probably hate it, I guess... ;) :lol:
TBH I long since sampled the voice, string and flute - and that's me done for the K1! Everything else was pretty crappy. :D

Brilliant news! K4 has my favourite choir-in-a-box sound.

His blog is super fun as he reports the results of his hacking into this stuff:

Well thanks everyone for educationg me.
I knew there was another Rochester oop Norf, but had never visited, so didn't know it was so inferior that it didn't have a castle :lol:

Ah! Apologies - my mistake, I had absolutely no idea there was another Rochester in the UK. Thank you for enlightening me :thumbup:

Rochester in Northumberland is the site of a Roman fort, but it wouldn't make a good stand-in for a medieval castle :bouncy:

Just noticed they're down for Cropredy in August, after someone offered me a lift. This could be my chance.

One of my favourites off that album. Great when played loud, and in the dark! :thumbup:
