The guy that saw it at Musikmesse used photoshop to edit a pic of the T2 to make the above pics 'look like' what he "saw" at Musikmesse of the T3 perhaps? If that's what he "saw" in his mind's eye with these resultant photoshop pics, all I got to say is that guy sure ain't no artist is he. God help us brothers and sisters if the T3 looks like that..

Ian (our boy from Yammie.. - has told us a little bit about the T3's looks (which he himself heard 'through the grapevine') that the stealth look is gone (as everybody and his brother stands up and cheers wildly.. ) and instead it will have a 'similar' shape as that of an S900 (without the speakers), or so it has been rumored.

>> If Yamaha wants to see a crowd go wild and break down the doors to purchase their latest/greatest, all they would have to do is post a "real" pic of a T3 with 76 keys. Yes siree, I'm telling you right now if they did, enough jaws would drop around the world that the fly population would need to be put on the endangered species list. That's how much "excitement" Yamaha would create in the arranger music world in my opinion. It would be on par with the U.S. landing on the moon or the Beatles concert at Shea Stadium in New York in 1965. >> Women keyboardists would swoon from ecstatic joy seeing a Yamaha high end arranger with more than 61 keys, boys and girls would stop calling each other names, dogs and cats would start eating from the same dish - at the same time no less.. , world leaders would resolve to treat their citizens with respect and dignity, birds would sing to their hearts content, terrorism would be a thing of the past, gasoline would drop back down to 99 cents a gallon.. , third world poverty would be on the mend, Republicans and Democrats would finally start working with each other in a bi-partisan way.. [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/biggrin.gif[/img], the more than a third of current married Japanese couples who don't have sex will start having sex again, the birth rate in Russia would finally start to rise again, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. - and the list goes on and on and on... [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/biggrin.gif[/img]

See how much GOOD Yamaha could do if they just decided to once again make a professional high-end "76" key arranger workstation? [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/smile.gif[/img] The possibilites seem endless! It staggers the imagination just to think about it. [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/eek.gif[/img] [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/biggrin.gif[/img]

Don't hold your breath, right? [img]http://www.synthzone.com/ubbs/wink.gif[/img]

Best,
Mike

Seems most of us agree on that mike...


But as long as 90% of the potentiall customers are hapy with a 61 key unit its not going to happen...

But somehow they seem to forget that people want to have what they hear and see on stages, and if they see 40% more Tyros on stages that could boost their total sales by another 20%..

If Roland comes with a new arranger on level with the phantom G-series that has a nice big LCD screen, 76 keys, arx, knobs and sliders (and SA voices)... They can gain back a lot of the market they lost to Tyros.

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a new Roland 76 note arranger either, just quietly.

I have heard there is not going to be one, and they are sticking with the 61 notes and marketing to the "home user".

Even the E60 is to get the chop, or so I have heard.

Of course this is not "gospel" but just what I have heard.

Seems the very underwhelming sales of the g70 finally may have convinced them to leave it to Korg and Ketron for 76 keys.

Well with Korg not giving any support for 3rd party styles on the Pa800 and Pa2X that soon leaves us with just the Ketron as an option..

And from past experiencess i'd never buy a ketron the first year after it releases...

So if i get a good bonus later this year i might be able to finally buy the Wersi ver late this year, and be able to resist the urge to buy another keyboard as i allready hav far passed the ammount needed with my current savings...

Tough i still think its a shame....

@ BACHUS,

What do you mean with no 3rd party support for styles?

If you are refering to styleworks, they offer support for the PA800 / 2x style format in the STYLEWORKS XT version!

Well, if the Audya are going to cost near what said on a few wbsites,
the price difference to a Wersi (Abacus Duo maybe?) will be less than
ever before.
But, a Wersi dealer looks to be very rare to find, specially here in
Scandinavia......

Happy Playing

We have 3 Wersi dealers here in Holland..thats 17 million people in an area from 200x100 miles

The difference between Wersi and other brands is that you get no good deals on Wersi, the list price is actually almost equall to the sell price..

Whereas on most keys you can get your gear at about 75% of the list price....
So that still leaves me with 8500 for a complete Wersi abacus duo pro versus 3500 for a Ketron Audya..... the Audya money i have here in my pocket, but for the Wersi i am still almost 3000 short...

OK... My 2 cents worth...
Yamaha PRO division told the Yamaha Home Keyboard division 'YOU CAN NOT DO A 76 KEY BOARD'
It would take business away from those PRO boys.

Not really, they are two different ball games, but I think that is what happened???

Well we got a price announcement by a dutch dealer...

List price of T3 will be 500 above the T2 list price.. I think that would indicate that for the US the price should be somewhere about $600 above the T2 list price...

The prices sure are different around the world.
Quote myself from a post at the SZ Ketron Forum:

Norwegian Kroner: 55000,- (SD1+, Tyros2 and the new Korg are priced
between N.Kr. 25000,- - 30.000,- these days)

That's approximately 10400 $ , or 7150 , or 4960 !!

---End quote.

The price will probably, or may I say hopefully, be a bit below that
level....
