Any NAMM rumors?

 

 

Apple: Logic Studio 9 ?

 

Korg: A new Radias model ? 64 voice poly, 16 part multitibral and efx on every part just like Access Virus?

 

Yamaha: A new VA at last AN7x ?

 

Clavia: A new Nordlead with efx ?

 

Elektron: Something interesting ? GrooveStation ?

 

Roland: A new MC station, MC 990 ?

 

Novation: Supernova 3 ? or are they dead as synthesizers builders now?

 

Or is hardware synthesizers a dead dinosaur?

 

I still hope some of these can release something really interesting at a competitive price.

;):eek:

As we all know, Summer NAMM is typically NOT about keyboard/synth announcements ...

 

However, I'd love to see Roland make some kind of serious forward progress with the Fantom G OS ...

 

I am seriously jonesing to upgrade, but I WILL NOT until a worthy OS v2.0 arrives ...

Will Akai ship the Miniak with a software editor? Or even release their version of the Alesis Ion? (Yeah, right...) :rolleyes:

 

And will Mackie release their secret product -- the one advertised front-page on their site some months ago with the "Are you afraid of the dark" contest?

 

(btw, I don't expect Apple to release Logic 9 until Snow Leopard is out.)

I'm about the buy a Korg ESX-1. Is there any sign a new Electribe will be announced? Probably not, but it has been 6 years since the ESX-1 was released. Should I wait?

 

I can't believe there's still a sampler on the market with a Smartmedia port... Least they could do is upgrade to an SD or CF port and allow access to at least a thousand samples at once. 255 may still be enough, but kind of limiting.

 

 

I don't think Korg has attended Summer NAMM the last two years and I doubt they would start up again now.

 

 

Korg attended last year unveiling the Nano series. It wasn't much, but last Winter NAMM wasn't either. That's 2 NAMM expo's already unveiling pretty much nothing.

I read - months ago - that Novation was working to Supernova 3. But so much time is passed :facepalm:...

I'm selling my Virus C and i'll have to fill that damn hole on my 3-tiers keyb stand. I was thinking about the ruby-red Q+, but Novation could stop me, if they only wanted :facepalm:...

Actually, the Q+ is my primary target, but i have to sell the Virus first. A dude offered me a trade with a Roland XP30, another a trade with an expanded Triton rack and an expanded Karma...But i need money, not romplers, gentlemen :cop:

Here is a top secret spy photo of Dave Smith's new MicroPho prototype:

It's the guts of a Mopho combined with an iPod Shuffle interface.

 

- One knob to edit parameters.

- Flip the left switch to randomly change which parameter you are editing.

- Flip the right switch to randomly generate a new sequencer pattern (which is continually playing).

 

Graphics will, of course, include the words "FLIP IT!" above the switches.

they promised that they where going to have this big product

on winter namm 09 but they didnt so i hope this summer namm

they will do.

 

 

Oh... Sorry to break it to ya, it was the Microkorg XL. I know it was announced before NAMM, but Korg probably meant something big would be present at NAMM rather than announced.

...and where did you read this Tony?

 

their website before/when it was announced.

 

I don't think Korg has anything major this time around, based on some sources who should know. No new workstations at least... But there's a full spectrum of colors to re-release the kaossilator in. :)
