Bruce, now that this thread has cleared up some misconceptions of the state of modern DPs, and in particular hybrids with authentic grand piano actions, have you been considering just breaking down and buying yourself a state-of-the-art hybrid - say a Yamaha N1X or Kawai NV10 - and using it just as a MIDI controller? You can use it to drive your current RD2000, or any other music-making apparatus - Nord, Dexibell, etc. No reason to give up the sounds of what you have. Of course this idea presupposes you have the space for an extra keyboard (which happens to be attached to a cabinet).

Well.... maybe I purchased the wrong thing eh? So with one of these high-end home units, do I get the 50 thousand sounds?

So I guess my "high end" units would look like all the features and functions of my RD 2000 and the keyboard amps/speakers of the big Yamaha units.

While those home units look cool, they are still "de-featured". I want it all in one box!!!

Peace

No, as I mentioned above, to get the 50000 sounds, you'd need to use the hybrid as a MIDI Controller for your existing RD2000, which you could do if you have the space. In any case, two DPs connected together is still nothing like Bobby Simon's home setup here. LOL. Or you could just use VSTs. You could have all the sounds you want with VSTs.
