I was thinking the same thing leezone smile

Last year ketron previewed their current projects (but did not release them).

They are:
GP1 - portable Grand piano
SD1000 - new sound module
MidJay Pro - new version midjay with touch screen

I am very excited about the Piano.

I hope that this SD1000 will be a scaled down version of the Audya 4, meaning that it will keep all the beautiful audio styles but not the left and right hand voices. This way it would be the perfect instrument for someone (like me) who already has one or more keyboards and cannot see a reason to pay almost 3000 euros for something that he will use at 50% of its possibilities.

Good to see you Dreamer ... hope all is well.
I agree with you about the Audya 4 having some unneeded features. I stayed with the Midjay Plus (and the SD1Plus) and I am looking forward to the Midjay Pro.
Ciao,
Jerry

Maybe they are having software problems, just like happened with the Audya, that had to reach version 4.0 to gain (finally) some stability and reliability (but there are still problems like the corrupted files...)
