All in all it appears to be a respectable upgrade - all the bells and whistles I had hoped for, and then some.
I like the fact that it's black, but I'll kinda miss that typical sculpted, chiseled look that the previous silver versions have. The 950 appears to be more "boxy" than earlier models. Yet still - I can't wait for the new toy - I'm hopelessly addicted to the call of a new PSR - so I'll sell the 910 and buy the 950. I betcha Yamaha just loves me! smile

Don't I recall Donny being quite enthusiastic about the Ketron SD1's drums when he tried it? This is the same thing, only $2000 cheaper.

In fact, don't I remember Donny being nothing but lavish with praise for WHATEVER he is currently using (and scornful of everything else despite having had it and praised it at the time)?

I still think 64mb is too small for audio drums.What can we really do with this?

They go live on the Yamaha website on Monday.

Prices (RRP) are S750 1083, S950 1783.

Details obtained from here

Although as Ketron & Wersi have had Audio Drums for 12 years or more, it's not exactly ground breaking. (Good price though)

do we know anything about the keybed itself yet?

if Yamaha is true to form it'll be lame, non-responsive, etc.

it's somewhat astonishing that they continue to innovate under the hood but bungle what might be the most crucial part of the interface. kinda like putting a gokart steering wheel in a Porsche or something....
