Looks like mini keys then?
I don't know why they do that. Just make it a box.
Strange campaign. It seems to be over before they got to the point.

Def mini keys...they're tiny !
The CS 80 thing looks interesting though.
I thought there was a Cp70b and a YC 45 D too ?

iPad/iPhone, PC editor :?:

I woulda SO loved if they made the synths in the fan renders floating around a few years ago... SUCH a missed opportunity if its a non-knobby synth!

Well Imna wait to hear the sounds but excitement level = 2% :-(

Im not going to post the direct pic as it will disappoint too much if it shows up in this thread but why didnt they make this concept a reality:

Yamaha, you can still hire me to give you advice on what you need to market! Don't be amazed that these will fail.

I guess the "any place, any time" translates to something really small and light.

So no replacement for a CS80 which I would have thought needs to have a decent full sized keyboard even if it was just playing a VST engine.

Similarly for the other Yamaha product I'd like to see, the DX1/5.

the problem with big build ups is that you really piss off the people who are disappointed because it's not what was hoped for.

hmm, listened to the CS demos and had to stop. Didn't really like the sound at all - didn't scream CS to me but maybe that's my lack of knowlede re what they sound like beyond Vangelis and Eddie Jobson.

DX was a little better but again sort of failed to inspire.

Create your sound any place any time sounds a bit naff.

Not such a huge selling point really in todays world.

They're kind of cool, but not as cool as the hype. Slightly more interesting for me than Roland AIRA, but probably won't get one.

After his promotion for the Akai Wolf I wouldn't be surprised at the integrity of any of his endorsements

Updated: a source (not Richard) tells CDM that the project he’s describing isn’t Reface.

some better quality pics. The DX and CS look interesting but why not a more knobby interface on the DX ? :hmm:
