Apparently there is nothing new from Synclavier, other than the new iOS apps that are already available. Other than the Dexibell S7 Pro, their new stuff looks to be for the home market. I was hoping for a 2 manual organ.

I thought it's going to be my next MIDI controller until a saw "no MIDi jacks". It's very similar to the Korg D1 (weight and price), although Korg has proper MIDI jacks.

I'm sure there's someone at Roland still fighting for the D-Beam.

I still hold out some hope (very slim) for a PX-5S replacement...


The trouble with doing the job correctly first time, is no-one will ever know just how difficult it was.

I once broke out into a jazz scat solo on my Roland VR-760 just to screw with my bandmates.

It was on April Fools Day and there were only about 5 people left for the 3rd set.

I’m very proud of finding a use for the Roland jazz scat patch live!

A piano teacher once told me a story: he was playing a gig as a dep for a jazz quartet. During their warm up set when it was quiet he messed around with the Roland scat sound for a laugh. The band members seemed to like it. Right before they were due to play their next, main set, a regular at the jazz club came up to him and said "I don't like your voices."

He assumed the guy meant "voicings" (as in chord voicings) and started to panic, thinking his style wasn't gelling with the rest of the band, and they were just being too polite to say anything.

He pondered on it for half the set and self-consciously stumbled along trying to phrase his chords differently, until he realised the guy was talking about the Roland scat voices. He relaxed after that and went back to playing how he wanted. Never used the scat voices live again.

I have a sentimental spot for the scat vocal samples. A few years after Kurzweil released the Take 6 library, I did an “a capella” jingle with those vocal samples on a K2500 and 1 singer who blended perfectly. The client used it for 10+ years.

I wouldn’t do this today.

There's no law, but yes, almost certainly, anything a company intends to announce at NAMM is announced and shown from the first day. Companies pay a lot to exhibit there, they'll want to get as much exposure for their new products as possible.

That’s so funny, me too! But that commercial didn’t run as long, though.

Behringer pricing:

Prices were given as $299 for MS-101, and RD-808, $499 for Odyssey and $599 for VC340 and they should all be released in March with 3-year warranties.

I wonder if they'll sell any of those 808s?

Busch.

Press release from Casio about the two new Privia models, although the links don't work yet-- but perhaps will be working by the time NAMM officially starts at 10AM PST:

Jerry

Thanks for Posting the photos and the link. I was not aware that Behringer was going to make an OBXa model instead of the original OBX. During the seventies, I owned both of those syths but not at the same time. It broke my heart when I HAD to sell the OBXa. I wasn't playing music to make up for the investment and the IRS came calling looking for tax money they said I owed them.

I was happy to hear that the HW design is finished and the unit was shipped off to have the Firmware done. Progress. I wonder what it will cost? No target price yet.

I'm just happy that after 8 pages of speculation, NAMM has actually finally started, so we can actually start getting real reports instead of web announcements and youtube videos.

This is the trend at both CES and NAMM these days for many companies. Trade show costs are through the roof, and many are questioning the ROI of a booth.
