Congrats! You've built yourself a hybrid EX5 Super Kronos Ultra++ edition.

Was there any reason why you wanted/needed to put the PC inside the EX5?
Yamaha: SY85, TG500, A3000, PSR48, PSS780
Kawai: K4
Ensoniq: SQ2

Long Gone: Far too much gear from the 80's and 90's that went out the door for £££! Moved to soft synth city instead.

Having the opportunity into a tool with excellent mechanical everything you need for music production, without the need for connections to computers, sound cards, mixers etc ...
You can only use the traditional way Ex5, only the PC, or both.
Just need a monitor or the Ipad or cell phone to view.
A mause for commands.
It 'expected to function by vst host running unattended can program different vst assigning each one a different midi channel for direct access via Ex5 sequencer without the need of the monitor.
However, my passion is also to experiment and change! :lol:

Mind blown. That's all I can think of to say. The only thing that would make it perfect is HDMI out not VGA. Ok one thing comes to mind. Why not a Raspberry, or Pi or whatever those tiny computers are. Of course they arent work horses, but they'll run apps and have hdmi out. Mind still blown tho. I love the use of the audio ports too.
