I have really enjoyed the last several issues of Keyboard, but I am surprised that the Hammond XM-2 module, Yamaha Motif XS, Kurzweil PC1SE, among others, have not been featured in any reviews. I know that reviews depend on manufacturer's supplying a demo, timing of the issue publication, etc., but these items have been out for awhile. How about a review on your website instead of the magazine, so that more products can be featured?

Hey B3keys,

Sometimes manufacturers simply don't set aside units for review. they jump right into the selling part of the equation for some reason! Steve Fortner's Motif XS review will appear in the August issue. I'll check on the XM-2 status, I'm unsure where we are with that one. As far as i know, Kurzweil isn't exactly shipping the PC1SE, at least in this area, and we're told that we'll get a unit sometime this summer when they're available.

Your web-only idea is a good one, and one that we're considering.
