In general NAMM is not the time and place to introduce new arranger gear, i would not expect anything much...
But the Synth and workstationmarket sure could use some new things.. I am realy expecting a new Motif and for yamaha to catch up to Korg.. Korg is in a good position right now with the Kronos, no reason to expect anything. I have beeen wayting for NI to introduce a hardware master controller for their Komplete VST synth line.. Roland will not be at NAMM and their 15 January event will probably not have shocking keys news. Kurzweil definately needs a new big hit..
The only thing that really excites me is a possible new Motif... am am anxious to see if they finally upgraded their AWM stuff to the 21st century and give synth fans something challenging and new... or that its nothing more then just a minor evolution of the current Motif, putting Yamaha another mile behind Korg when they release their new products later this year or early 2015
Yamaha Genos, Roland Jupiter 80, Ipad pro.
