Totally Agree 100%

A few people in the UK received an initial shipment of the S950 on October 8th or earlier.

Korg's relatively more full and "live" sound, Yamaha's detailed and polished CD-like sound...I suppose the beauty behind these differences lies in choice and/or preferences, as well as the player's/entertainer's needs.

Some simply prefer the sound(s) (and styles) of one over the other (some, like John Smies, have both), and both companies are very successful with their own unique product.

It would be boring (and limiting) if all arrangers (and synths) sounded/performed exactly alike.

Ian

PS...It's the same reason we have Mac's and PC's (with many different browsers)...Toyota and Honda...McDonald's and A&W.

Yamaha should really make some kind of modul.Just SA sounds on it.It doesn't even has to have big poliphony.Just for solo and multi sounds.I think it would sell really good.
McDonald's is horible foot Ian.One of the worst..bljak..ufff

I suppose a module/rack mount with SA/SA2 sounds is quite possible, perhaps as a Combo Division product? Maybe a version of MOX or Motif? It could still be used with an arranger.

Perhaps Korg should consider making one with just DNC sounds...and their great drum kits?

I'm not sure of marketability of either...hard to say.

McDonald's? "bljak" is as good a description as any. wink

I never eat there; A&W either...as a rule, I don't eat fast food.

Modules had their time IMO .....it's been here and gone away, if it was profitable they would still be around,..More importantly striving to be a being a great player should be TOP of your list first,.... then having great sounds, & styles to combine together with the talent you posses,...otherwise what's the sense....? confused1

Heck, with the Tyros4's 993 Voices + 30 Organ Flutes + 480 XG Voices + 256 GM2 Voices + 44 Drum/SFX Kits, and with those 993 voices including: 15 S.Articulation2! Voices (AEM technology), 164 S.Articulation Voices, 43 MegaVoices, 30 Sweet! Voices, 101 Live! Voices, and 71 Cool! Voices...

...I honestly do not need a module.

Laptops with software such as this have effectively replaced modules.

Enjoy
